When Avatar came out in 2003, did you see it in the theater? Were you mesmerized by the animal and fauna in the film?
If not, don’t worry, a lot of people weren’t impressed with James Cameron’s world at first. After bonding with the horses and failing at riding all we want is for Jake to succeed.
Then something happened half way through the film that changed everything. The main character, Jake, learns a true hunter and member of the tribe needed to ride on a Ikran or the Banshee. The flying creatures come in a variety of brilliant colors and temperaments.
“Now you choose your Ikran.”
“This you must feel inside. If he also chooses you move quick like I showed. You will have one chance, Jake.”
“How will I know if he chooses me?”
“He will try to kill you.”
This moment in the movie was imprinted on my mind as one of the best of all moments. The concept of a bond between an animal and it’s rider has always been one of my favorites.
If you could bond with an animal which would you choose?
