Do you remember Avatar? It was released seven years ago as the single biggest movie of 2009. But unlike other sci-fi blockbusters with broad family appeal, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone today begging for a sequel, let alone clamouring for theme park rides based on the film. But that's just what we're going to get next winter at Walt Disney World. The company announced that Avatar Land will open at Disney's Animal Kingdom park during the winter of 2017. And the fact that it's opening long after anyone cares about Avatar shows precisely why it's so hard to keep Disney's Epcot theme park "futuristic".

Disney and James Cameron are still trying to convince the world that Avatar remains a thing. And who knows, they might be right... eventually. Seven years after the film debuted, and right in the midst of four planned sequels, the Mouse has revealed that Pandora — The World of Avatar is opening in winter 2017 at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Unobtainium lived a relatively unexciting life until 2009, when James Cameron's Avatar rocked into theatres and destroyed several box offices records. Besides serving as a MacGuffin so humanity had a reason to wage war against the Na'vi, unobtainium is real thing... well, a real term, anyway.

Do you remember watching Avatar? It was a pretty long time ago! And though it looked amazing in 3D IMAX (and not so amazing on sad old DVD) there were definitely things wrong with the movie. Like how it was Pocahontas or Dancing With The Wolves with a giant blue man group. Or how it was only fun when you watched it in 3D. Anyway, Cinema Sins takes Avatar to task and finds everything wrong with the movie in less than 4 minutes.

Do you know why people hate movie studios? Why, increasingly, they're driven to download content illegally, even though they're perfectly willing to pay for it? Because of crap like this.
