Blue is also a color that is fairly neutral. Green automatically brings up orcs, goblins, maybe nature sprites (he Green Man). Red brings up evil or infernality. Yellow/brown/black/white are in the color gamut of ordinary skin tones. A blue color is definitely different and stands out for a race because it does not have the "baggage" other colors might bring with it.

All they need is the ear prosthetics. I know one FX place, Aradani Studios, has an article on how to not just do the blue look, but do a close approximation of the nose and ears, even though Na'vi are completely a CG race.

As a TV series, it done with decent authors, it might have some longevity. Stargate is a good example of this. The movie was excellent, and the series has been quite solid over the years, spawning multiple spin-off showsdealing with different concepts. This would take some scriptwriting because it is harder to find happenings occurring on one world as opposed to many, but it can be done.

There are a number of plot twists one can do. I am also factoring information from the game in too which was a good lead-up to the movie. A couple ideas come to mind: One can tribute Orson Scott Card and the Na'vi be able to use the interconnected world similar to Jane in the Ender series, for faster than light intersteller transportation. This could be combined in some way. Perhaps Earth needs saving. One can go the route of getting the Na'vi culture from the noble savages to a culture that has adapted to human technology, but not a slave to it, mainly to combat a menace to Pandora (asteroid strike, RDA coming back for seconds.) One can also go the route of Asimov, and look at Pandora as Gaea from the last two books from the Foundation series, where it would be important to get the "sky people" interwoven and interlinked to either prevent something bad from happening. There are a lot of good science fiction authors that one can borrow from that make a vibrant world and a decent plot.
