    Avatar was my favorite cartoon on earth! I've watched every episode two or three times. I named my dog, Mushroom, after Sokka's friendly mushroom lines.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the show. I've watched the episodes like 5 times.
    I really hope the movie is good. I probably won't be able to see it when it comes out because non of my friends are fans or anything, so probably will buy it when it come out on DVD.

    I was so confused when the Avatar movie came out, because I saw the previews and thought, "What the heck do 10 ft. Tall blue people with pointy ears and sharp teeth have to do with Aang?"

    I'd like to get the whole series on DVD or BluRay, but even now, 3 years after the series ended, they're rather expensive. Each book costs about $40.00, and I keep hinting to my SO that getting me all 3 books would make a great birthday gift!

    haha when they get confused that I'm talking about flying bison and arrowed people...I just explain that I'm talking about the original, not the Pocahontas rip off.

    The movie Avatar isn't a ripoff of the Last Airbender or even Disney's Pocahontas.

    It's a completely different story line, and has always been called Avatar. It's unfortunate that the biological replicants are called avatars, but I don't think James Cameron was even aware of the Last Airbender series.

    Cameron took information from different books/stories to create the movie, but the one he relied on most was a series of books produced by Frank Herbert, author of the Dune series.

    Herbert wrote about a planet called Pandora, which (not) coincidentally is the name of the planet in Avatar.

    The biological replicant of a Na'vi native is called an Avatar by the people who made them. The Na'vi call them Dreamwalkers, and know they're not real natives.

    I don't think it's Pocahontas like at all, although I can see why some of you would think so.

    Some of the things in this mish-mash of different stories were pure Cameron, like 'unobtanium'. Really? That's really the best he could come up with? Gah!

    I love M. Night. Love him, love him, LOVE HIM. I will see anything he makes.

    It'll be interesting to see how I like it compared to those of you who follow the series. Funny how that works. Nothing can ever live up to the series you fell in love with. I feel that way about TRUE BLOOD/C. Harris books.

    Hugs,

    Pam

    I love Avatar! I can't wait to see the movie. I hope it's not too big of a let down. I've watched the animated series a few times and am watching it now on nick.
