Trivia: In the final battle sequence, Neytiri has a white handprint on her chest as part of her warpaint. It has five fingers, indicating that it is Jake's hand - Avatars have five fingers while Na'vi only have four.

Trivia: During the final battle, Lyle Wainfleet's AMP Suit gets knocked down and crushed by a charging Hammerhead Titanothere. Wainfleet utters a Wilhelm scream just before he's crushed. (02:21:05)

Trivia: James Cameron wrote the script for Avatar in 1995 but could not begin filming because of technological limitations. Cameron felt he could begin after seeing the technology used to create Gollum in the Lord of the Rings films and returned to the project in 2005.

Trivia: In some parts of the battle between the Na'vi and the Sky People, James Horner's music from Enemy at the Gates can be heard.

Trivia: During their first outing just before Jake runs away Norm Spellman can be seen wearing a hat with a pattern on it, this pattern is braille and it says 1969 on it.

Trivia: In the final battle scene, right after Jake's grenade blows up one of the shuttle's engines, the two pallets of explosives in the shuttle slide together, crushing a soldier between them. He utters a Wilhelm scream. (02:23:10)

Trivia: During the end credits the flying shots are recycled from the beginning and other ikran flying scenes, but reversed. Right as James Horner's name is displayed you can see a shadow of an ikran. This is the same shot used when Jake first rides his ikran and he narrates "I may not be much of a horse guy." Jake, Neytiri, and ikrans are removed, but Neytiri's ikran's shadow remains on the foreground rock left.


Trivia: When Quaritch gives his "You are not in Kansas anymore" speech, the window in the background resembles an American flag. The horizontal window slats are the red stripes, the spaces between them are the white stripes, and the piece of machinery in the corner is the union (the blue part with the stars). This is a subtle reference to the film Patton, in which Patton gives a speech standing in front of an American flag at the beginning of the movie. (00:06:45)

Trivia: Originally Michael Biehn expressed interest in playing Quaritch, but Cameron turned him down on the concern that having both him and Sigourney Weaver billed together would make people think he was remaking 'Aliens'.

Trivia: The retracting creatures Jake experiences in his first Pandora outing are giant versions of Christmas Tree Worms - a marine invertebrate.


Trivia: In the scene where the large space shuttle-style ship is landing on Pandora at the start (that carries Jake and co.), we can see shots of the ground. One panning shot shows an extremely large mining vehicle that has large arms with several buckets attached to the round sides of cylinders on each arm. The machine is huge and looks unreal, but it is actually a replica (or of similar design) to a digging machine that exists today. It was designed by Krupps, and is the largest digging machine in the world. It can be viewed here: http://www.swapmeetdave.com/Humor/Workshop/Trencher.htm. (00:04:00)


Trivia: In the scene where Jake asks Tsu'Tey to translate for him, right after Grace dies, you can see a feather colored like the American flag on Tsu'Teys' right breast.

Trivia: Sigourney Weaver saw her character Grace in the film as James Cameron. She stated in an interview "I teased him because to me I'm playing Jim Cameron in the movie as this kind of brilliant, approach-driven, idealistic perfectionist. But that same somebody has a great heart underneath. So I have to say I was always kind of channeling him."


Trivia: Avatar was code named "Project 880". Promotional items were shipped to theaters under this name.


Trivia: Cameron wrote the film with environmental, political and social issues in mind, and as a result of his stance on climate change, only allowed vegan food on set.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Parker is shown playing golf on the indoor golf course in RDA, the first time he hits the ball, there are two other balls lying on the course side by side. In the next shot, two are distant apart and in the shot after that, they are in their original position. (00:12:15)

Neytiri: You have a strong heart. No fear... But stupid! Ignorant like a child!

Chosen answer: Jake and Neytiri were holding hands and Neytiri had her hair unbraided. It is also possible that when Na'vi mate, their appearance changes slightly in a way that only other Na'vi could see.
