I’m not trying to sound like a simpleton, but an association came to mind when I first saw the Na’vi hybrids during the showing of the 24-minute Avatar reel at ComicCon. “I’ve seen those ears before,” I told myself. It finally hit me today what that association is. It came after I saw this just-released photo of Sam Worthington and a submerged Na’Vi hybrid. No biggie. Just sayin’.

Na’vi hybrid in James Cameron’s Avatar; morph victim in Walt Disney’s Pinnocchio.
