Roger Dean sues over movie Avatar
Roger Dean is the brilliant artist behind dozens of album covers from Yes, Asia, Uriah Heep and more.
Roger believes the movie's look borrowed heavily from his body of artwork (ie: floating islands, stone arches, etc.)
Along with a cash settlement and a public statement admitting he was the creator of imagery used in the film, Dean wants Fox to “cease and desist from any further reproduction, distribution, transmission or other use.”
If judgement is found in his favour, it means the original version of Avatar would have to be scrapped, and any sequels will look massively different from the production seen on release.
With the way lawsuits go sometimes, he might just have a chance of winning this thing.
