The eagerly anticipated teaser trailer for director James Cameron’s Avatar film premiered today — treating viewers to a lush alien world with bizarre occupants and a growing conflict between races.

In taking a peek at the rough plot line available on Wikipedia, it’s fairly evident that Cameron is drawing upon environmental issues past and present here on Earth. For instance, his alien race — the Na’vi — live in a lush rainforest world and have learned to “live in harmony” with nature. Then along come humans — which encroach further upon the Na’vi lands seeking valuable minerals. Remind you of the European displacement of North American Indians? In an interview, Cameron said that one of the major themes he wanted to base his story on was how “advanced civilizations supplant indigenous cultures, in either actively genocidal or more unpremeditated ways.”

Have a look at the trailer below:
