If you have the Fox Movie Channel you may have seen a new 10-minute special behind the scenes look into James Cameron's Avatar. Not to worry if you don't have the cable network because Hulu has published it online. Check it out below.

The sci-fi epic will star Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez, Giovanni Ribisi, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Peter Mensah, Laz Alonso, Wes Studi, Stephen Lang and Matt Gerald. Director James Cameron makes his long-awaited return behind the camera from a story he wrote.

Plot Concept: Story centers on Jake Sully, a former Marine confined to a wheelchair. Bitter and disillusioned, he's still a warrior at heart. All Jake ever wanted was something worth fighting for, and he finds it in the place he least expected: on a distant world. Jake has been recruited to join an expedition to the moon Pandora, which corporate interests are strip-mining for a mineral worth $20 million per kilogram on Earth. To facilitate their work, the humans use a link system that projects a person's consciousness into a hybrid of humans and Pandora's indigenous humanoids, the Na'vi. This human-Na'vi hybrid – a fully living, breathing body that resembles the Na'vi but possesses the individual human's thoughts, feelings and personality – is known as an "avatar."

In his new avatar form, Jake can once again walk. His mission is to interact with and infiltrate the Na'vi with the hope of enlisting their help – or at least their acquiescence – in mining the ore. A beautiful Na'vi female, Neytiri, saves Jake's life, albeit reluctantly, because even in his avatar body, Jake represents to her the human encroachment on the Na'vi's unspoiled world.

As Jake's relationship with Neytiri deepens, along with his respect for the Na'vi, he faces the ultimate test as he leads an epic conflict that will decide nothing less than the fate of an entire world.

Avatar will hit theaters December 18, 2009.

The more clips the more the awesomeness of the entire film shows through, the flying clip looks terrific. And I do love how Cameron caught the actors emotions with their cg characters.

I just saw a new commercial with some new bits not seen before and it just looks better and better everyday.

Can't wait for the sequel, I mean to Dec 18

Very cool. Hopefully, this level of detail on the facial movements will create more realism in the look of the speech.  That was one of the problems I had with the first trailer we saw.  When the avatars spoke, it looked fake.  Some of the footage since then has looked better.

Absolutely fantastic.
