The story - The film is set in the year 2154, when the RDA corporation is mining a precious mineral called unobtanium on Pandora a lush, Earth-like moon of the planet Polyphemus in the Alpha Centauri star system. The expansion of the mining colony threatens the existence of a local tribe of Na'vi - a humanoid species living on Pandora. Pandora's atmosphere is toxic to humans, forcing them to use breathing masks. Parker Selfridge heads the mining operation, which employs private military contractors for security. Pandora is inhabited by the Na'vi, a ten-foot-tall blue-skinned species of humanoids, who live in harmony with nature, worshiping a mother goddess called Eywa. To facilitate relations with the Na'vi and research of Pandora's biosphere, scientists grow Na'vi-human hybrids called avatars, controllable via mental link by genetically matching humans. Jake Sully, a paraplegic former Marine, replaces his twin brother, a scientist trained as an avatar operator but murdered in a robbery.

Dr. Grace Augustine, head of the Avatar Program, considers Sully an inadequate replacement for his brother and assigns him as a bodyguard. As Grace, anthropologist Norm Spellman and Jake collect biological samples and data in the forest in their avatar forms, a thanator's attack separates Jake from the group.

Neytiri, a female Na'vi, rescues Jake lost in the forest and brings him to Hometree, the habitat for her clan, the Omaticaya. Neytiri's mother Mo'at, the clan's spiritual leader, shows interest in the "warrior dreamwalker" and instructs her daughter to teach Jake their ways.

RDA's head of security colonel Miles Quaritch promises Jake restorative treatment for his paraplegia in exchange for intelligence that would enable RDA to vacate Hometree of the Na'vi and get access to the unobtainium beneath it. As Jake starts delivering information to Quaritch, Grace becomes suspicious and relocates herself, Jake and Norm to a remote outpost with avatar link units.

Over three months, Jake grows close to Neytiri and the Omaticaya, eventually rejecting RDA's agenda. After Jake is initiated into the Omaticaya, he and Neytiri choose each other as mates. Jake reveals his change of allegiance when he disables a bulldozer as it destroys the tribe's Tree of Voices. Quaritch presents Selfridge with Jake's video diary, in which Jake admits that the Omaticaya will never abandon Hometree. Selfridge orders Hometree destroyed.

Despite Grace's argument that the destruction of Hometree could affect the bio-botanical neural network that Pandoran organisms are connected to, Selfridge gives Jake and Grace one hour to convince the Na'vi to leave Hometree. Jake reveals his original mission to the Omaticaya, and Neytiri accuses him of betrayal. Jake and Grace's avatars are taken captive.

Quaritch's forces destroy Hometree, killing Neytiri's father, the clan chief Eytucan, and many others. Jake, Grace and Norm are imprisoned for betraying the RDA. Trudy Chacón, a security force pilot disgusted with Quaritch's methods, breaks them out, flies them to the outpost and helps relocate it. During the escape Quaritch shoots Grace, seriously wounding her.

To regain the Omaticaya's trust, Jake tames a Toruk, a powerful flying predator that only five Na'vi have ever tamed. Jake finds the Omaticaya at the sacred Tree of Souls and pleads with Mo'at to heal Grace. The clan attempts to transfer Grace from her dying human body into her unconscious avatar with the aid of the Tree, but she succumbs to her injuries before the transfer is complete. Mo'at declares that "she is with Eywa now".

Assisted by Neytiri and the new leader of the Omaticaya Tsu'Tey, Jake unites thousands of warriors from many Na'vi clans in a bid to repel the humans. Jake prays to Eywa, via neural connection to the Tree of Souls, to intercede on behalf of the Na'vi in the coming battle. Quaritch notes the mobilization of the Na'vi and convinces Selfridge to authorize a preemptive strike on the Tree of Souls, reckoning that the destruction of this hub of Na'vi religion and culture will demoralize them into submission.

As the security forces attack, the Na'vi retaliate but suffer heavy casualties, including Tsu'Tey and Trudy. The Pandoran wildlife suddenly joins the attack on the corporation's forces, overwhelming them, an event that Neytiri interprets as Eywa answering Jake's prayer. Jake destroys the bomber before it can reach the Tree of Souls.

Quaritch finds the avatar link unit where Jake's human body is located and attacks it, exposing Jake to Pandora's atmosphere. Neytiri kills Quaritch and saves Jake. With the attack repelled, Neytiri and Jake reaffirm their love as she sees his human body for the first time. Selfridge and the remaining corporate personnel are expelled from Pandora, while Jake, Norm, and other scientists are allowed to remain. The clan performs the ritual that permanently transfers Jake from his human body into his Na'vi avatar.
