James Cameron, the director of Avatar, says ''It's a way of connecting a thread through history. I take that thread further back to the 16th and 17th centuries and to how the Europeans pretty much took over South and Central America and displaced and marginalised the indigenous peoples there. "
In the film Avatar they also go to war because the scientists want to find out what Pandora is and what it does.
Avatar and the European Imperialism have similar things. " Africa, at the time was largely untouched by Imperialism, became the target of European governments seeking to obtain raw materials such as cotton, oil, rubber, and diamonds. In Avatar, we see a Western corporation settling on Pandora in order to obtain the element “unobtanium” for a planet Earth that is depleted in natural resources. "
During the European Imperialism people were introduced to new roads and school, that also happened in the film avatar. " In Avatar we also see the construction of roads and schools for the Na'avi to teach them English. "
