stay alive, and the tragedies they endure. All of this against the breathtaking backdrop
of Pandora, where audiences are introduced to new Na’vi cultures and a range of exotic
sea creatures that populate the majestic oceans. Nominated for numerous Academy
Awards® including Best Picture, the James Cameron-directed film became the third
highest-grossing box office film of all-time and set a new benchmark for visual effects.
