Avatar is a Pocahontas / Dances With Wolves / Battle For Terra / Fern Gully ripoff ?

Avatar has been likened to “Dances With Wolves in Space” – or even Pocahontas In Space. The basic story has been done to death before, that of a man befriending an indiginous species and coming to understand and live with that species.

However – and this is the clever bit – look at this script extract of Pocahontas. Or even view the Youtube Video below that mashes up the Pocahontas voiceover with the Avatar trailer 🙂

Other suspicious Avatar – A – Likes include Poul Anderson’s “Call Me Joe” and the movie “The Battle For Terra”
