Avatar teaser trailer

Comment:  I gather Avatar involves a Terran military force on the planet Pandora. To function there, the humans must be put into the bodies of the indigenous blue elf people. Presumably one soldier falls in love with a native, goes native, and rebels against the mission.

Offhand I'm guessing Avatar will launch some discussions about racial politics. Let's hope the movie is on the right side of the issues rather than the wrong side.

For more on the subject, see Avatar = Dances with Wolves? and James Cameron's Avatar.
