But was the story original?

    Hi Grandpa Richard. Really cool blog. Now to the point. Avatar wasn’t original. Well, the story is pretty common. I remember watching it on the release day in my country and a friend next to me said it looked like Pocahontas in 3D. I’m sure you have stumbled upon the funny picture of Pocahontas-Avatar story.
