Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a former U.S. Marine is selected to participate in the Avatar program. He is sent to a Planet called Pandora, residence of a primitive Na’vi alien race. He meets his officer Colonel Miles Quaritch (Stephen Lang) there who handles the human colony there. The authorities want to explore the planet for resources but are obstructed by the Na’vi. They convert Jake into a Na’vi hybrid and ask him to go to the Na’vi home to convince them to leave. While exploring the area Jake loses his group and is saved from wild animals by Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña) a female Na’vi. Jake starts gaining their trust as a Na’vi hybrid. He also reports to his commander simultaneously. He eventually decides to stop the humans from removing Na’vi people from that place and joins them as a Na’vi leaving his human body.
