Why are Avatar characters in Blue Color? Why it Up!
Welcome back to another fantastic episode of "Why it Up!" where we dive into all the fascinating questions that leave us wondering, "Why's that a thing?" I'm your host, and today we have a topic that's been on many minds recently. That's right, with the recent hype around the "Avatar" universe, we've found ourselves asking: "Why are Avatar characters colored in blue?"To begin with, the Avatars, or the Na'vi, are these 10-feet tall, human-like creatures in this mythical universe called "Pandora". And this human-likeness became the topic of endless conversation on the internet when the first "Avatar" film hit the theaters in 2009. Oh, it blasted the world with its never-before-seen CGI graphics and story. But, out of all the fantastic visuals, it was the blue color of the Na'vi that caught everyone's attention!So, the big question is, why blue? The answer is simpler than you might think. According to the film's director, James Cameron, the blue color was simply meant to feel exotic and other-worldly, so it was a design choice. He said, "Since they [Na'vi] live in a rainforest, I wanted them to have these bioluminescent markings reminiscent of many real-life rainforest animals." This design decision gives the Na'vi a distinctive and recognizable look, and it highlights the fact that Pandora is an entirely different world, even though it shares basic similarities with Earth.But there's actually more to it than just aesthetics. The color blue holds some interesting cultural and symbolic significances. For starters, blue is known to represent trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, and intelligence. Many of the qualities the Na'vi tribe embodies very well. Moreover, numerous cultures and religions associate the color blue with the divine or the heavenly. This gives the blue-ish tinge of the Na'vi an elevated, celestial, and ethereal feel.Even in Hindu mythology, many deities, like Lord Krishna and Lord Rama, are depicted as having blue-skinned. So, the "Avatar" storyline opens our eyes to the fact that there's so much more to the color than just appearances. It's time for all you "Why it Up!" fans to embrace your inner blue mania!Now that we've delved into the deeper meanings of the Na'vi's blue tones, it becomes clear that this creative choice has a multifaceted impact. To sum up, the color not only makes the Na'vi visually captivating, it also provides a level of symbolic and cultural depth that contributes to the overall richness of the "Avatar" universe.And with that, we've come to the end of today's episode.
