I disagree with the "less original" statement. I would say that FoP, for example, is equal in originality to EE because both create a new experience out of a narrative. You make the distinction that legend is old and IP is new, but both are stories. Here, I agree. Yet, I would say that when assessing the ride, we have to look at originality of the experience. Does the ride create a new experience from the narrative material (as I would argue FoP and EE both do) or does it simply replicate the narrative (for example, JotLM, slinky dog). The fear with IPs is that there is more possibility of simply replicating the existing narrative without creating a new experience.Fair enough. The point still stands: The line between EE and Moana is razor thin. More importantly, EE, being built around a legend, is less original than, say, Tron or Pandora, both of which are attractions built around stories created by people who are still alive today. The preference for dead legends over live ones is surely not universal.
