It’s hard to believe that it’s only been 6 years since James Cameron showed us he could still break records at the box office. He had mentioned in the past that he was planning to release more movies in the blossoming franchise he had created. Personally, I was not a big fan of the movie, but as a former effects artist, I cannot help but be floored by the sheer beauty of the technology and the artist’s behind it!
Cameron spoke with Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview where he stated, “I’m in the process of doing another pass through all three scripts right now,” This is great news in deed for fans of the movie. He went on to say, “Just refining. That’s in parallel with the design process. The design process is very mature at this point. We’ve been designing for about a year and a half. All the characters, settings and creatures are all pretty much [set].” Cameron wants this to be a success, he mentioned that he has pushed himself very hard.
Right now, Avatar 2 is expected to release in Decemtber 2017. The plan is to release a new avatar movie every year around the same time. Right now, Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang are said to appear in Avatar 2. Although these characters died in the original film, the sewuels will focus on Jake Sully, and Neytiri. Let us know what you think about the update from James Cameron himself!
