The year is 2154, and Jake Sully is a former Marine confined to a wheelchair, yet despite his physical limitations, Jake remains a warrior at heart. He is recruited to travel light-years across the universe to a human outpost on Pandora, where a corporate consortium is mining a rare mineral that is the key to solving Earth’s energy crisis. Because Pandora’s atmosphere is toxic, they have created the Avatar Program, in which human “drivers” have their consciousness linked to an avatar, a remotely controlled biological body that can survive in the lethal air. These avatars are genetically engineered hybrids of human DNA mixed with DNA from the natives of Pandora...the Na’vi.
Reborn in avatar form, Jake can walk again, and he is given a mission to infiltrate the Na’vi, who have become a major obstacle to mining the precious ore. But after a beautiful Na’vi female, Neytiri, saves Jake’s life, everything changes. Jake is taken in by her clan and learns to become one of them by compelling tests of strength and courage. As Jake’s relationship with his reluctant teacher Neytiri deepens, he learns to respect the Na’vi way and finally takes his place among the indigenous tribe. Soon, events draw him into a clash of civilizations, and Jake faces the ultimate test as he leads a monumental battle that will decide the fate of an entire world.
