I've never seen Avatar, nor paid much attention to it, though I knew it was visually impressive. So I had no idea just how awesome this character design was. For the record: pretty freakin' awesome.
(And if you haven't heard about the casting for the live-action movie, go do some Googling. They've hired white people to play all the Asian heroes...and actual Asians to play the bad guys. Yyyyeah.)
(ETA: This video
lays it out in detail, with a combination of pointed satire and large friendly letters.)
