Sigourney Weaver Introduces More of Avatar's World
Posted 12.06.09 by reelz
Avatar's promised Pandorapedia still hasn't been released to the general public, but French TV has Sigourney Weaver giving what looks like a pretty comprehensive introduction to life on the alien moon — perhaps for tourists or an Animal Planet special.
We get familiar footage of the thanator super-predators and the pterodactyl-like banshees, but also glimpses of some of the other flora and fauna. These range from the apparently inoffensive bio-luminescent wood-sprites to the dire horse, not to mention the Leonopterix, which is a flying creature even higher up on the food chain than the banshees.
A final interesting factoid: All of the major critters on Pandora, both on land and in the air, are hexapods, i.e. they have six limbs. Why? 'Cause it's an alien world, that's why. In any case, the visuals, as always, are worth checking out.
