Experience the spectacular world of James Cameron's Avatar as never before with this collector's ed. release. Watch all three versions of the film, than treat your senses to an unprecedented beyond the scenes look at the greatest adventure of all time! When his twin brother dies in an accident, paraplegic ex-Marine Jake Sully takes his place on a mission to the human outpost on Pandora, where a corporate consortium is mining a rare mineral that is the key to solving Earth's energy crisis. Sully works with a group of scientists cloning near-duplicates of the planet's inhabitants, the Na'vi, whom specially trained scientists can control mentally to foster peace between the corporation and the natives. But when Sully finds himself lost on Pandora and trapped in a Na'vi clone body, a beautiful Na'vi woman saves his life and Sully discovers the corporation's plan to mine the mineral--at any cost.
