i'm getting confused as to what rips off what here. it would seem that jungle book is the one ripping things off, but i remember that video where robin hood rips off a scene from jungle book, and we can see it rips off snow white here... it's never ending. but as many illusions as it may shatter, i can't not love these movies.

The Matrix and Harry Potter 1 are Star Wars structure rip-offs as well.

This is an excerpt from Orson Scott Card's open letter to J.K. Rowling (at least, that's the claim):

Well, heck, I feel like the plot of my novel Ender's Game was stolen by J.K. Rowling.

A young kid growing up in an oppressive family situation suddenly learns that he is one of a special class of children with special abilities, who are to be educated in a remote training facility where student life is dominated by an intense game played by teams flying in midair, at which this kid turns out to be exceptionally talented and a natural leader. He trains other kids in unauthorized extra sessions, which enrages his enemies, who attack him with the intention of killing him; but he is protected by his loyal, brilliant friends and gains strength from the love of some of his family members. He is given special guidance by an older man of legendary accomplishments who previously kept the enemy at bay. He goes on to become the crucial figure in a struggle against an unseen enemy who threatens the whole world.

They're making a movie of Ender's Game now too. There's actually a really awesome episode of Genndy Tarkovsky's latest cartoon Sym-Bionic Titan that apparently borrows heavily from Ender's Game as well.

Talked to my friend, a Disney animator, about that early Disney stuff. Their budgets were so tight that they just needed to save money, especially the films made around war time. A lot of original prints were actually lost because they would WASH THEM OFF and reuse the cells. Crazy.

Not acceptable. Why weren't they fighting in the war? Layabouts.
