He had the idea since 1988 and wrote his 80 page script treatment in 1993 and wanted a 1999 release date after he is done with Titanic then he decided that the technology couldn't do his vision justice, so he put the script in a drawer waiting for technology to do justice to his vision.

What you're describing sounds like Project 880...
2010 was the year of the Na'vi.Vivar 'ivong Na'vi!

It is true that Cameron wrote the script back in 1993. Problem is, the technology didn't exist to make Avatar a reality until a few years ago. So the finished script sat unused. It is this reason that a lot of people seem to complain that Avatar's plot is recycled. Back when it was written in 1993, it was an original idea. But the intervening years from 1993 to 2008 or 2009 have resulted in a lot of movies being made. The original project 880 script was modified to the script used in the theater releases everyone is so familiar with.
See that shadow? It's the last one you're gonna see.

I thought he said on the Extended Edition "making of" feature that the scriptment was finished in early 1995, not 1993, though I may be mistaken.

May the odds be ever in your favor.
