Re: Avatar (2009)
I think you're right Procrastinator. Human avatars. I'd put money on it. For a start, the name will still make sense. Also, Zoe Saldana would get to be human rather than big and blue (and her stocks rising what with the Trek franchise and Pirates of the Caribbean, so the executives will probably want more 'visibility' on that score), plus you can't have leads who are not human all the way through (We've no problem with that but you know Hollywood!).
Not so sure about Earth though. Still, never know.
