Avatar, which has been in the making for over 10 years, will be Cameron's first feature film since 1997's Titanic.

Avatar is set during the 22nd century on a small moon called Pandora, which orbits a gas giant, and is inhabited by the tribal Na'vi, ten foot blue humanoids that are peaceful unless attacked. Humans cannot breathe Pandoran air, so they genetically engineer human/Na'vi hybrids known as Avatars that can be controlled via a mental link. A paralyzed Marine named Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) volunteers to exist as an Avatar on Pandora, falling in love with a Na'vi princess and becoming caught up in the conflict between her people and the human military that is consuming their world.

The film has been shot with a new 3-D camera system that Cameron has developed, and will be shown in Imax 3-D, where available.

Avatar hits theaters on December 18.
