Film Themes

The film Avatar, was written by James Camron, he included many themes in his script making the plot more complex and intriguing. One of the main themes to the film is property rights, as the humans who came to Pandora start war with the natives just for the land. This leads us to the next themes of religion and spirituality because the Na'vi people believe the spirit and wisdom of their anchestors is connected with the nature of the land. The Na'vi people's faith and culture is in the land, they consider it their home which is why they don't give it up. Another theme could also be love, as the Na'vi people love there land and also Jake and Neytiri fall in love with eachother. Whereas Colonel Quaritch is more focused on greed, imperialism and colonising Pandora.
All these negative and positive themes clash together to make a great and fascinating film.
