Additionally, the movie received generally positive reviews from critics and viewers, earning it four Oscar nominations, including the best picture. Cameron claimed that rather than the utilisation of technology, audiences gravitated to the movies because they cared about the characters in Avatar. The director insisted that technology must be changed in order to give fans a better representation of their favourite characters.
He further added,”The success of the film is not due to technology. Because I believe that people care about the characters, I’ve actually kind of embargoed talking about the film’s technical production.”
