It's why people loved "Avatar" so much. It was original; the effects were awesome, for sure. But it was a new story!Errm... Everything I've heard about the movie was that the story was completely unoriginal, and was basically an exact copy of "Pocahantas", but in a somewhat different form. I did see the movie, and I would say that the story wasn't anything special - the effects were really what did it. I was really surprised when I saw this... I thought the general consensus about Avatar was that the story sucked O.o

It was a similar story to Pocahontas, to be sure, but an exact copy? Only insofar as "Dances With Wolves" is an exact copy. Same premise, yes, but each of them was unique unto itself.

It`s more of Pocahontas meets Fern Gully in 3D.Think about it.

Ya, I don't even know anything about the Pocahantas story, I just remember everyone saying that about it though.

Actually, maybe because of too much WoW, I was able to piece together Avatar as " The World of Warcraft movie, as envisioned by James Cameron".It goes like this:Guy log ins on his new Night Elf Hunter WoW character.He tries to cast Tame Beast on a panther that's too high level and almost dies.He gets Apprentice Riding and Exalted with Stormwind and gets a pony mount.He skips Journeyman Riding, but later gets Expert Riding in Outland. After much grinding, gets Netherdrake mount.Meanwhile, humans want to mine giant Titanium node under TeldressilThey use vehicles to raid Darnussus.The World Tree crashes, lots of Nelfs ragequit.Meanwhile Sigourney Weaver tries to do a server transfer, but fails. Stuck with Blizzard's customer service for a week.Main guy finally gets Artisan riding, and bags a Time-Lost Proto-Drake mount.He then epeens it in Shattrath. Nelves follow him.Gathers more people with Netherdrake mounts and Stormwind horses. Later they forgot Blizzard never gave them mounted combat.Main guy and Nelves defeat Humans using greens; midway through the battle main guy's game time card almost runs out.Humans ragequit after losing, Nelves call them noobs.Main guy Feigns Death for lulz, does server transfer, but comes back when he found out Paragaon AND Ensidia are both on the same server.
