Spread the love

Some actors give more than just the movie.  Their essence makes the film come to life.  Zoe Saldaña is my favorite movie star but I would like you to see why it’s all about Avatar.

After Avatar made its stunning debut it became clear that the bar had changed for “Epic Science Fiction” movies. The new race grabbed hold of us and pulled us into Pandora. The mystery and intrigue found its name then – Zoe Saldaña.

Every single scene, movement, challenge, or battle became so real. It made me wonder why I had never seen this actress before. Sure, I had seen her in other movies, but not as the reason for the movie. It was her war cry, her rebuke of Jack Sully, her leaping and shooting- that made it all so real.

However, this was not lost on Saldaña either. At the D23 expo in California during the presentation of  Avatar, Way of Water. she shared her view on the then-upcoming film.

“(I am) wanting Avatar 2:  Way of Water, wanting its reception to be similar to the first, where people are just taken for a ride,” Saldana says. “Where they get to learn, they get to live, they get to feel, but also they get to think a lot about who we are, and what we are, and where we are.”

She returned as the beautiful chief, warrior, and wife of Jack Sully who is now the father and leader of their family.  But who is Zoe Saldana and what has she achieved in these years?
