Character mistake: In the beginning scene where the shuttle lands on Pandora, as Jake gets on his wheelchair preparing to alight from the shuttle, the man behind him unloading equipment has his exopack mask loose even though he is exposed to Pandora's atmosphere. (00:05:20)
Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) kills Quaritch and she helps Jake (Sam Worthington) just as he's on the brink of dying after he gets knocked out of the pod where he's linked to his Na'vi body.

A ritual at the Tree of Souls is performed and Jake's mind is transferred permanently to his Na'vi body.

Question: There is a scene where Parker is telling Grace that the piece of ore he is holding, called "unobtainium", is why they are on Pandora.

Was the use of the same ore name in Avatar, done with permission from the earlier movie? Or was it a mistake?
