Script Comparison – James Cameron’s Avatar is Disney’s Pochontas

Posted: January 5, 2010 in MOVIES, NEWS STORY


Did you know that James Cameron’s Avatar is just Disney’s Pochontas in disguise? Of course, this isn’t very surprising. If you know anything about screenwriting or storytelling, than you know about Joseph Campbell’s Heroes Journey, the mythic structure that has been utilized in many many Hollywood films. You might remember that popular video from College Humor which compared JJ Abrams’ Star Trek to the original Star Wars. Someone once created a similar comparison between Star Wars and Harry Potter, which also humorously demonstrated the underlying structure of Campbell’s teachings (I’ve also included that after the jump).
