Set in 2175, twenty five years have passed, and whilst many things have changed, some have not. Because stocks of the rare mineral unobtanium (valued at $20m per kilo) are running low back on Earth, an ultra republican US President (played by Will Ferrell) orders a re-establishment of the RDA Mining Operation on Pandora.

Ironically, the Na'vi are now desirous of a such re-engagement because lacking advanced medical technology they are unable to defeat a slow-acting virus introduced during mankind's first visit. In desperation, Jake Sculley (pictured) travels to the interior of the planet to seek a cure.
To add depth to the drama, flashbacks are shown - including the related
events that led to Sculley's disabling injury, and the death of his brother

In a dramatic final scene, Jake appeals to the mother goddess Eywa to
re-animate his human body and find a cure for the Na'vi. The stage is thus set
for the third movie expected before 2015.
