Quote from: Hydra009 on January 19, 2023, 01:38:02 PMI thought for sure that the sequel would have featured a more abashed and cautious human expedition (once bitten, twice shy) with yet another mix of scientists and military types. They could even set up in a desolate or volcanic area for easy mining and geothermal energy. Give themselves more of a buffer between them and unfriendly wildlife/natives.From there, it wouldn't be hard to write a story where the human presence is increasingly disruptive and unwelcome and and a source of conflict, like naval vessel communications unknowingly causing whale deaths or overtures with the Na'vi causing a diplomatic incident.Then there's a power struggle between the militarists and the scientists in act 2, triggering full-scale conflict in act 3 (conflict that is not fully resolved by the end of the movie)Bam, another blockbuster with plenty of sequel potential.

Quote from: Blackleaf on January 19, 2023, 02:35:42 PMI don't think the American (I assume) military would take such a reserved approach. If anything, they'd be like, "They hit us, we hit back twice as hard." Especially since they have the technology to upload the minds of the fallen into their avatars. Death has little meaning to them. I believe Quaritch said as much. Even if he died again, they'd just bring him back.
