James Cameron has Stolen Avatar, Boris Strugatsky Claims
Boris Strugatsky

The Russian sci-fi writer Boris Strugatsky accuses the Hollywood film director James Cameron of having stolen some of his ideas.
      According to the 76-year old man of letters, James Cameron took the setting for the blockbuster Avatar from the novel series on The Noon Universe, aka The World of Noon written by the Strugatsky brothers as far back as the 1960s.
      Boris Strugatsky asserts that planet Pandora in the movie Avatar was adopted from his novels. His suspicions are obviously based on the fact that in the Strugatskys novels the natives of the planet resemble dogs, whereas in the film they are somewhat similar to cats. Moreover, in the Strugatskys brothers novel Disquiet a biologist named Mikhail Sidorov finds himself on planet Pandora and settles with the aborigines. A suchlike thing happens in Camerons movie with the marine Jake Sully.
      However, Boris Strugatsky will not be able to verify his claims: he is not going to watch Avatar. I will most probably avoid watching the movie. It would be interesting to see what they have made of our idea in Hollywood, though Boris Strugatsky confides.
