Avatar fans will have a chance to explore Na’vi, the native language of Pandora, during a lecture at CIGI on Dec. 6 at 7 p.m.
Presented by TheMuseum, Paul Frommer, a linguistics professor who was commissioned by Avatar director James Cameron, will talk about how he developed the language.
Frommer will discuss key features of Na’vi and how he worked with the actors to help them master their lines. Included is a brief language lesson along with a look at the Na’vi enthusiast community that has embraced the language and is helping Frommer develop it into a viable medium of communication here on earth.
CIGI is located at 67 Erb St. W., Waterloo. Tickets are $10 (presentation only) or $22.50 (includes admission to Avatar: The Exhibition at TheMuseum).
Avatar: The Exhibition offers a first-hand look inside the making of the highest-grossing film of all time. Developed in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products and James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment, the exhibition dives deep into the groundbreaking technology that brought the blockbuster film to life.
The exhibition features interactive installations, iconic props, costumes, concept models, and production drawings from the film.
