Avatar – Planet Pandora featurette released by Fox


20th Century Fox has just sent through this latest promotional featurette for the Avatar movie, which as you will no doubt know, is going on general release on 17 December. Narrated by Sigourney Weaver, in character as Dr Grace Augustine, it screens like an inflight briefing on the planet of Pandora, as if from the movie itself. 

What it actually does is take a step back from the military hardware and huge explosions, to show off some of the incredible flora and fauna that the massive art department and visual effects teams have spent several years developing in darkened offices all over the world.

I can’t help wondering how it would have sounded for the UK market with the majestic narrative tones of Sir David Attenborough, but then, alas, he’s not in the movie…extra features perhaps Mr Cameron?
