Avatar (2009) was the first film directed by James Cameron since Titanic (1997) and his first science fiction movie since Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).

Cameron also directed The Terminator (1984), Aliens (1986), The Abyss (1989), True Lies (1994).

The story owes much Ursula Le Guin‘s novella The Word for World is Forest (1976)

The Na’vi language is an a priori constructed language created by linguist Paul Frommer: it currently has a lexicon of about 1,000 words.
