The Banshee was one of my favorites in the film. They are so beautiful and watching them fly in the movie was making my adrenaline rush. Thanks for posting this! Ever since seeing them on screen I've been having the urge to draw this animal. Providing this information was really helpful, thanks a lot!

I watched this movie in 3D in the cinema just a week ago and it's so damn awesome. It's worth its money, all the way! Loved the banshees, though Toruk was even better IMHO. However, one thing I dind't really get was what Neytiri said to her banshee. Was she calling it by a pet name? Anyone know what I mean?

Saw the movie yesterday. IN-F***ING-CREDIBLE. Truly, the best movie I've ever seen in terms of visuals and setting. Not the best story ever made, but it's really just how it's executed that makes it so epic. I was actually sad when the movie ended, I wanted to stay in PANDORA!!!

Banshee is actually an irish word from old folklore, Bean Sí. The banshee was a woman seen/heard by few at night prior to a death. She sat on a rock wailing and combing her long hair, eerie! Anyway, Avatar - going to see it again, it's fantastic. This time i'm taking the family as no DVD can give the full effect of the 3D cinematic experience. Cannot wait to see Sam Worthington in the Clash of The Titans remake, however i think Avatar is fresh and original, therefore in a league of it's own!

Wow, with this level of execution they should be able to make "The Dragon Riders of Pern" next.

Iwish they had a bird dance ----- Ikran's flight Overture- Tribute to Avatar. Those birds were colorful, attractive and humongous when they glide they represent that power and might to their wilderness. It brought all that beauty to the film. The birds were my favorite.

Considering many dinosaurs evolved into Avians (which are brightly colored and patterned) Some may have had elaborate skin coloring but bright feathers in certain places is more likely. Pigment dosn't exactly last the test of time...

Don't worry. Thanks to Disney Parks, we will get to go on Pandora at Disney's Animal Kingdom. And James Cameron is planing on 3 sequels.

I love Avatar. My cat's name is Banshee. Halo is cool. I see no one here is Irish.. The Banshee is a feminine spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the Otherworld.
