Deliberate mistake: When Selfridge says "Pull the plug" after Hometree is destroyed, two soldiers, one male and one female, go to shut off Jake and Grace's avatar links. The female soldier goes straight to Grace's link and terminates it, but the male soldier gets delayed (punched by Norm) before he can terminate Jake's link. This is deliberately shown out of sequence - we see Jake's link terminated before Grace's. The result is that we see Grace's avatar fall unconscious when Jake's link is terminated, and Jake's avatar fall unconscious when Grace's link is terminated.

Character mistake: In the beginning scene where the shuttle lands on Pandora, as Jake gets on his wheelchair preparing to alight from the shuttle, the man behind him unloading equipment has his exopack mask loose even though he is exposed to Pandora's atmosphere. (00:05:20)

Jake Sully: Look, at first it was just orders. And then, everything changed. Okay, I fell in love. I fell in love with the, with the forest, with the Omaticaya people, with you. With you.

Trivia: James Cameron wrote the script for Avatar in 1995 but could not begin filming because of technological limitations. Cameron felt he could begin after seeing the technology used to create Gollum in the Lord of the Rings films and returned to the project in 2005.

Question: Does this movie take place in the same universe as ALIENS?

Answer: No. The Alien franchise, which kicks off in the year 2122, depicts a human civilisation in possession of faster-than-light transport and multiple interstellar colonies. The civilisation seen in Avatar, the majority of which is set in 2154, do not appear to have FTL travel, as they take six years to travel to the Alpha Centauri system, a distance of approximately 4.5 light years.
