"Parallels of Imperialism in Avatar set on the planet Pandora, Avatar is a science-fiction story of a money-hungry corporation’s attempt to conquer and excavate the land of humanoids known as Na’Vi." Just like the Europeans who wanted, land, resources, etc. They just pushed people out of their homes and who knows how many women and children died. To me this movie resemble imperialism a lot even if that was not the intention of the director.
"Imperialism is empire building", this happens because one state or country is more powerful than the other. Slavery was one of the most things that progressed and was a great conflict. The Europeans believed that they were superior to anyone who was not European. The Europeans were very racist and thought they were better than anyone else. Ethiopia and Liberia were the only areas not colonized in Africa by the end of the century.
The plot of this movie is about humans finding out about a planted named Pandora. "The planet has been found by the humans to be rich with unobtanium, an incredibly valuable mineral that acts as the most efficient superconductor in the known universe". However there is another species on the planet called the Na'vi and their home is Pandora. So the humans decide to create an "avatar" which is something you mind links to and you will be like the Na'vi. So the main character, Jake sully goes in one and gains the trust of the Na'vi. However he falls in love with a Na'vi named Neytiri. The humans attack Pandora to get the unobtanium and Jake Sully fight with Na'vi to protect their home. They do suffer a great amount of casualties but in the end they do succeed.
In this clip they are destroying what is called "home tree". I chose this video because you can relate the Europeans attacking Africa and India to the humans attacking the Na'vi. The human have better technology and much better weapons, just as the Europeans. On the other hand the Na'vi only have arrows to defend themselves with, just like the Africans having little weaponry and no knowledge for defending themselves.
