About Avatar
Avatar, a live action film with a new generation of special
effects, takes us to a spectacular new world beyond our
imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of
redemption and discovery, ultimately leading a heroic battle to
save a civilization. The film was first conceived by Cameron 14
years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist.
Now, after four years of actual production work, Avatar delivers a
fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the
revolutionary technology invented to make the film, disappears
into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.

Avatar: An IMAX 3D Experience will be digitally re-mastered into
the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience®
through proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.
