The trouble is that the indigenous people and hostile nature of the planet make it nearly impossible to mine. In fact, Weaver's character is the head of the Avatar project, trying to make peaceful contact with the Na'vi.

Worthington is a crippled vet, disillusioned, but a warrior at heart. This is the perfect assignment for him as he is freed from the restraints of his broken body. God, it was so good seeing her in a James Cameron movie again. Weaver plays her character a little mother hen as she straps him in and prepares the consciousness transmission. Another little detail in these scenes that I loved was just how awesome the transparent computer and information screens looked in 3-D. As Worthington slips under and the transfer begins Dileep is monitoring his brain activity on a floating screen.

Dileep has to walk, so with a swipe of his hand he moves the screen onto a smaller portable screen that turns the x-ray brainscan around as he examines it. Dileep walks into check on the two Avatars Moore and Worthington. From this point on the footage left our world and focused completely on Pandora as the Worthingon Na'vi is wandering alone.
It shows its displeasure by a colorful ruff raising like peacocks feathers but armored. It stops and looks confused, then scarred, turning back and running away with the heard. Of course that means a slick-skinned panther-like creature is behind Worthington. Worthington seems to be on his own as he jumps between trees, under the large, gnarled and tangled roots of one old tree, trying to find a safe spot. This female warrior sees this and even in this crazy alien world this is not normal.
You can tell by her reaction. We find out later this is a Wood Sprite, a seedling from a sacred tree.

It alights on the arrows tip momentarily before moving on. This is a good time to talk about Pandora a bit. Also like the deep sea lifeforms many of the fauna have their own luminescence. The dogs are slickly black skinned, like an eel and have sharp canine-like teeth, but when they snarl the lips pull back much further and are more menacing.
How to Find That Book You've Spent Years Looking For
Worthington takes advantage of the intervention and stabs the dog on top of him. Anyway, she ignores him at first, looking sadly down at the dog carcasses. The one she shot with the arrow at the beginning of the rescue is still alive and whimpering. She whispers to it in her native tongue as she puts it out of its misery. She is angry at having been forced into the position of killing these creatures, saying it is his fault. As she chastises him, she goes around to all the dead animals and whispers some kind of prayer or saying over them.
She also douses his torch and we come to find that she is right. Not only does the forest glow naturally with its own light, but as Worthington makes his way in the dark trying to follow her he sees that his very own interaction with the world creates a light reaction. When he steps on a moss-covered log the moss turns bright green under his foot and tapers out a few feet from the impact point, when he passes by a plant and brushes the fern it glows in reaction.
With a giant grin on his face as he discovers the wonder of this jungle world, the self-luminescence, the Wood Sprite returns… with a few dozen of its brothers and sisters. She tells him and us just what these things are and that it is an amazing honor to be chosen by them. All that is from the first act of the film, by the way.
Gone are his human clothes, replaced by native gear and face paint, like a Native American warrior. Plots in the Pantry Nov 8, More Information. Anything else? Provide feedback about this page. Back to top.
