That is what I am hoping for. I really do not see how that fits in with Disney. There are so many awesome movies they could do a lot with, why pick something like that anyway? Now, the cartoon Avatar the last Airbender...... Just kidding, but really.......

I agree it was the dumbest idea ever. I hope the whole idea will be scrapped.

Color me shocked Disney and Cameron have "creative differences".

Oh thank God it's over! I would've HATED avatar land! I think they need to add more countries to Epcot or some more countries to animal kingdom! Like Australia and south American countries! And maybe Russia or something

Another fan of the delay! Disney can do better than Avatar.
