The filmmaker, who is currently in Manaus for the second International Forum on Sustainability, feels that the experience will allow his actors to appreciate the setting and people that inspired 'Avatar,' and make the film even better.
"'Avatar' is a film about the rain forest and its indigenous people," Cameron said. "Before I start to shoot the two films, I want to bring my actors here, so I can better tell this story. Actors could learn about the natives and what real life in the jungle is like." Hopefully, this will make it easier for some poor thespian to stand in front of a giant green screen and pretend he's in a lush alien forest.
