The Cast of Avatar Reunited
The gang reunited at James' headquarters in L.A.
James: I remember when I was in college, I dreamed that I was going through a book of paintings, and a couple of paintings had a glowing ground. When I woke up I thought, "Wow, those paintings were really cool; I wish I could paint like that." And then I thought, "Wait a minute, I thought of those paintings, so I painted them."
Sigourney: What did you think would be the most daunting challenge?
James: The biggest challenge was [the Navis' faces]. In a really emotional moment, just like a tear welling up in the corner of the eye, could we make that as real and emotionally compelling to the audience as a photographic version of it?
Sigourney: And you did it.
James: We did it, we did. We pulled it off.
