Definition: A 'district' of very poorly built, yet manageable homes for the alien species known as prawns. Soon after the prawns were accommodated into District 9, it was noticed that they soon turned it into something that their home would look like. (Laboratories, egg nests, food preparation, etc.) The Prawns then started trading weapons and food with humans, and became almost entirely independent, showing less respect towards the humans.
Movie: A movie that came out in 2009 showing the events following the arrival of the prawns in District 9. It shows the behavior of prawns, which is very, VERY similar to humans, especially with the aliens using slang and swear words. (Actually, these Anthropomorphic actions of the alien prawns are very satisfying to the furry mind, so if you are a furry, I recommend this movie.)
According to some articles on the internet, the movie District 9 apparently rose from the ashes of the Halo movie, seeing that the Halo movie was canceled. The producer and director decided to make a lower budget film after the Halo project died, so district 9 was born.
The funny thing is, in the middle of the District 9 movie, there is a scene with an alien and a human battling they're way through multiple enemies using foreign space weapons. Probably a little shout out to the Halo series, since the Halo bit didn't turn out as expected.
Prawn 1: FUCK District 9 man, the damn humans blew up my eggs yesterday!
Prawn 2: I know, this place is a dump. I have to search through the trash every day to find something to eat, cause we ran out of cows a month ago.
