The first trailer for Avatar focused on Pandora' eye candy and menagerie of monsters. But the new full-length trailer finally gives us a sense of the plot, some actual dialogue, and more of the human-Na'vi war.

The official digital version of the trailer comes online next week (or you can see it starting today in theaters), but here we get some good insight into Jake Sully's character (beyond being chased by ferocious beasts and romancing Neytiri), as well as the tension we'll see between the human characters stationed at Hell's Gate.

Update: Sadly, we had to remove the trailer, but here's a description in case you missed it:

We see Sully arriving on Pandora in his wheelchair. A man says "I'd like to talk to you about a fresh start. A new world. You'd be making a difference."

We see some shots of Pandora, similar to what we've seen before: misty forests, soldiers trotting off aircraft. Sully says, "I became a marine for the hardship. Told myself I could pass any test a man could pass. All I ever wanted was a single thing worth fighting for."

We see more shots of Pandora, including the Thanator, and hear a little of Colonial Quaritch's speech, "Ladies and gentlemen, you're not in Kansas anymore. You're on Pandora."

And Michelle Rodriguez's character, Trudy Chacon, flying a helicopter comments, "You should see your faces."

Quaritch continues, "We have an indigenous population called the Na'vi. They are very hard to kill."

We see a floating bit on unobtainium. Someone says: "This is why we're here. Because this little gray rock sells for 20 million a kilo."

We see a holographic representation of the Na'vi village. "Their village happens to be resting on the richest pocket and they need to relocate."

Giovanni Ribisi's character says to Sigourney Weaver's Grace, "Those savages are threatening our whole operation. We're on the brink of war, and you're supposed to be finding a diplomatic solution."

We see Sully again. "The concept is that these remotely controlled bodies called Avatars." We see the Avatars. "They grow from human DNA mixed with the DNA of the natives."

Quaritch says, "A marine in an Avatar body, that's a potent mix." He's in the AMP Suit. "You get me what I need, I'll see to it you get your legs back. Your real legs." Sully replies, "Hell yes, sir."

Norm Spellman and Sully look at Sully's Avatar in a tank. Spellman tells him, "Looks like you, this is your Avatar."

Grace and Sully are in the medical bay as she is about to connect him to the Avatar. "Just relax and let your mind go blank. It shouldn't be hard for you." Sully connects to the Avatar, and the next thing we see is him and another Avatar in a helicopter. Sully is whooping.

There is a montage of moments from Pandora. A voiceover says, "Jake, it's real simple. I want you to learn from the inside. I want you to gain their trust."

We see Neytiri, and she tells him, "You should not be here." She shoves him away. "Go back. All this is your fault."

He says to her, "I need your help."

Then there is more montage, lots of falling and flying Banshees, and experience on Pandora. In between, we cut to Quaritch asking Jake, "You haven't gotten lost in the woods, have you?" And someone else tells him not to forget which team he's playing for.

We see helicopters over Pandora and Sully comments, "The strong prey on the weak and nobody does a thing."

The helicopters close in on the Na'vi. Neytiri, looking wounded, asks, "You knew this would happen?" To which Sully, in Avatar form, replies, "Everything changed."

As the battle ramps up, someone says, "Jake, it's crazy here. Quaritch is rolling and there's no stopping him."

Michelle Rodriguez's character says, "They're going up against gunships with bows and arrows." To which another marine replies, "Then I guess we better stop him."

From there on out, it's a lot of war, with Banshees, helicopters, and guns. A voiceover says, "They have sent us a message that they can take whatever they want. But we will send them a message: that this — this is our land.
