I've seen this concept art related to Avatar movie several times, but for some reason I've dismissed it as fan art, and never paid much attention to it. Eventually I was able to find such an image with the Weta watermark, which raised it to official status. But I still dismissed it as a abandoned concept, since the Na'vi Language page tells us that they have no written language.
But in my latest re-watch of Avatar, I noticed this concept image inside the Old School House. As shown on the right image. Does this mean that the Na'vi have some kind of rudimentary symbol system (pictographs) predating the writing system?
Markings on the Weta rendering of the Eytukan bow. Markings on a war axe from Project 880 days. And marking on the Staff of Wii…

So, do you know if the new Avatar-Land opening in 2017 at AK in Disney World will have attractions based-around the original film, or the sequels?Read more >
It appears the long-awaited sequel to 2009's Avatar is *finally* heading into production! ComingSoon.net reports that principal photography for Avatar 2 is set to begin sometime this April, once again in New Zealand. James Cameron will of course direct, from a script by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, and all the main characters are to be reprised by the original stars - Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver, and Stephen Lang. No official release date has been set thus far, but there is confirmation that three sequels continues to be the plan for the franchise. What are your thoughts on this development? Are you optimistic that the wait will finally be over sooner than later?Read more >
Ever since the Ubi shut down the game servers, I've searched for info on how to get access to the unlocked weapons and armors we had. I think the files should be on our computer but somewhere in the code it says you need to connected to the server to see them, since it's user-based, or something like that. Is there a way to tell to the game I'm connected, while in reality I'm not. But it seems that since it's considered a bad game by the majority, the hackers and crackers are not interested in it also.
The unlocks were the following:
RDA: Argo Standard Issue Rifle, Dent Nail Gun, Signet Shotgun.
Na’vi: PXI Crossbow, Ikran Axe, Tanshi Dual Blades.
RDA: Buddy Flamethrower, Crusher Grenade Launchers, Stellar M60 Machine Gun.

Sad indeed. An unexpected accident in California; James Horner died in a plane crash. He was alone in a small private aircraft; and was a trained pilot. He was 61.
What is perhaps rather eerie is that in his last interview in April, when asked about his continued involvement with the franchise he said "If I last that long".
A great shame in any case; he will be missed by many.Read more >
Hey folks. Just found out that this had been released; there was basically no fanfare or announcement bar it being posted on the Google Play and itunes stores. Literally, googling it just comes up with our article, one of the store pages and then various articles from January unveiling it. It's free to play, but incompatible with my tablet; if someone could go check it out that would be wonderful.

We only had rumours up till this point, but it looks like James Horner is here to stay.
His exact words were 'if I last that long', so it looks like he intends to stay with the franchise for the forseeable future. I wouldn't be surprised if he is wondering how long the full franchise is going to take.Read more >
This thing just launched, it is an interactive website that lets you 'explore' Pandora. It has its own pseudo-wiki, and it is chock full of information on the Omaticaya, Tipani, Tawkami, and Anurai clans, and even a new one named the Kekunan Clan who are known for their skilled banshee riders. Each of the five clans are given runic symbols and some surrounding info. Kekunan might be the proper name for the Eastern Sea People; it is kinda ambiguous atm. Regardless it goes way down into several artefacts; it looks like Neytiri's flight mask is in fact Kekunan in origin, as is the gear Jake wears during the final confrontation. Whoever made the website did their research; it even references …Read more >
Hi, guys! I haven't been on here in a while! It's kind of sad to see that the community isn't as active being that the new film has been delayed until 2017. I hope to edit more frequently once the new film comes out; I do really miss the people from the community and the whole atmosphere because it's truly incredible. My involvement with Wikia started with this Wiki, and I'm still so thankful to be a part of this community. It's good to be back!
First of all, I have to say that I watched Avatar for the first time in a long time last night, and it was truly incredible. Being able to delve back into that world and re-experience every aspect of it was incredible and it brought back a lot of memories; even though it's my favorite movie ever, I …Read more >
Hey folks. While doing some digging to find information about AVTR Advanced Team I discovered that another flash game was made at the time under the title Pandora ROVR, a sort of Myst-esque rover simulator. We totally missed it! It was done with McDonalds and the site is down (its been like five years), but i came across a back-up on someone's art portfolio website!
I believe the game was launched on Dec 11 2009, at the same time as the other flash game. Notably, each time you investigate an item it adds a log to the 'notes section', which quickly becomes somewhat of a wiki itself. There is a wealth of information in there for the site. I have also made a local back-up of the opening (CG) cutscene. …Read more >
