Avatar was a big deal when it first hit the box office back in December 2009. While 3D film had been around for many years prior, the combination with cutting-edge CGI visuals was totally unprecedented. Add in the fact that James Cameron was directing it and that the star-studded cast included the likes of Sigourney Weaver and you had a sci-fi epic that was the grand spectacle to go and see at local movie theatres.
Is Avatar remembered all that fondly today, though? Not really. In hindsight, many have criticized its stuttered pacing, lackluster character development, and a rather shallow overall story that is more or less a carbon copy of Disney’s Pocahontas. The ideas and concepts behind Avatar are so enticing, and it certainly is a grand spectacle to behold, but joining the sci-fi genre’s hall of fame would have required a little more narrative substance.
But that doesn’t mean Avatar doesn’t hold a special place in some people’s hearts. It’s still an entertaining film, and there’s absolutely a level of charm to its production that is hard not to appreciate. Moreover, it will always be remembered as a milestone in CGI development.
In fact, it may yet make its mark on the pantheon of sci-fi greats given that we’re set to receive a quartet of sequel titles over the next five years! And if that wasn’t enough, there’s even a brand new video game coming from Ubisoft, which was unexpectedly announced during E3 2021.
So, as fans ready themselves for yet more blue alien drama across Pandora and beyond, we thought it was high time we put together a little Avatar trivia quiz. Let’s see how well you remember the original, shall we?
