With the release of Avatar 2, RDA is coming back to threaten the peace of Pandora: be ready to watch another epic battle between RDA and Navi nation. Let’s see what the new head of resources development administration activities against Pandora has set in cards for Na’vi. Keep reading to grab a hold on the recent update about the new head of RDA who’s none other than Edie Falco.
What you say, should we revive memories of Avatar 1 before discussing Avatar 2? As it’s been more than a decade since we all have watched Avatar 1, it would be better to have a short review of the film before going ahead to know about its sequel. So, let’s go, and revive what does it feels like to be in Pandora!
Avatar (2009) Recap
10 years ago, on December 10, 2009, Avatar premiered breaking almost all of the box-office records. It became the highest-grossing film of the time: it surpassed Titans as well.
Let’s move ahead to have a quick recap of what happened in the Avatar (2009) which was the first in the Avatar film series.
Energy Crisis on Earth in 2154
Imagine that you are living in 2154, and humans have depleted all the natural resources of Earth. Now, what will you do to save every single living creature from extinction?
You would probably look for an alternative or something that can cater to Earth’s energy needs, right? This is exactly what RDA did back then in Avatar when millions of lives were on stack due to the energy crisis. However, whatever their intentions were, they forgot that to save one creature, they can not kill another.
RDA went on to invade another planet or we say a habitable moon where 10-foot tall blue-skinned sapient humanoids live peacefully. RDA tried to invade Pandora because there they found out a valuable mineral namely called Unobtanium: using Unobtanium Earth could be recovered from the energy crisis.
Na’vi-human Hybrids Called Avatars
As the atmosphere of the Pandora was poisonous for humans, the scientists of RDA created Na’vi-human hybrids which they call “Avatars”. Each avatar could only be operated by their genetically matched humans. The protagonist of the film, Jake is one of the humans who operate Avatars.
Invasion, and Attack on Pandora
When Jake’s avatar went into the forest for the first time, he was attacked only to be rescued by Neytiri, a Na’vian. She took him to her mother, and this is how Jake found a way to enter into their clan. RDA asked him to gather intel about one of the sacred places of Na’vi called Hometree. They intend to destroy Hometree as the ground below it was the richest source of Unobtanium. However, when Jake fell in love with Neytiri, and began to sympathize with the clan, he changed his allegiance.
The colonel didn’t like what Jake intend to do, so, he spontaneously gave orders to destroy the home tree. However, Selfridge gave Jake and Grace an hour to convince the clan to evacuate the place before the attack. Jake finally revealed that he was a spy so the clan held him and Grace captive. In the meantime, RDA destroyed the home tree and killed Neytiri’s father along with many Navians in the process.
RDA detached Jake, and Grace’s avatars and held them captive until Pilot Trudy freed them. However, during the escape, Colonel shot Grace. Jake to prove his loyalty to the clan, decided to connect his mind with Toruk, a dragon-like creature whom Na’vi both fear, and honor. Jake brought Grace to the clan (at the scared tree of souls), and pleaded to save her but all attempts went futile, and she died on the spot.
Colonel planned an attack on the tree of souls thinking it would demoralize the Na’vi. However, on the eve of the battle, Jack prayed to Eywa to intervene on the behalf of the Na’vi.
Although during the strike, Na’vi suffered heavy damage, they were rescued by the Pandorian wild creatures. For sure, it was the answer to Jack’s prayers. After jack spoils Colonel’s plans, he went to kill Jack’s human body. Just as he exposed Jack’s human form to Pandora’s poisonous atmosphere, and was about to slice his throat, Neytiri killed Colonel.
Later, Jack was saved by the aid of a tree of souls: his consciousness was permanently transferred to his avatar. This is how the film ended giving Jack, and Neytiri a happy ending, and RDA a life-time lesson.
Avatar 2- RDA’s Return in Pandora
As I stated above, it supposed to be a life-time lesson for the RDA but unfortunately, it seems like they have forgotten what happened to them back then when they tried to kill the innocents. RDA is planning to mark its return to Pandora but for sure, only to become defeat again.
Avatar 2 is currently under its production phase. On December 16, 2022, Avatar 2 will release. Finally, after a long-awaited journey, we are getting something worth watching.
