James Cameron is working on four Avatar sequels



2009’s Avatar looked amazing and truly pushed the boundaries of what 3D could do. However, it was a pretty standard story. Over the years James Cameron has kept talking about the sequels to the film, but details kept changing and things had gone quiet. As the original film made $2.8 Billion we knew we would be heading back to Pandora. We just didn’t know when.

Looks like things have changed once more as Cameron popped up at Fox’s presentation at CinemaCon to talk about the Avatar sequels. There had been talk of their being 3 sequels, but turns out there will now be 4 as Cameron found that 3 films were limiting.

We have decided to embark on a truly massive cinematic process. We began to bump up against the limitations for our art form.

However, each film will be a standalone story that will create a saga, according to Cameron.

I’ve been working the last couple of years with a team of four top screenwriters to design the world of Avatar going forward: The characters, the creatures, the environment, the new cultures. So far, the art I’m seeing, is in pure imagination, really far beyond the first film. It’s going to be a true epic saga.

Avatar 2 is planned to be released in 2018. There other films would then follow in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

I have no doubt that the films will look stunning, and I will more than likely be seeing them on the big screen to get that full effect. I just hope the story is more substantial and satisfying than the first film.

As long as they aim for a good story and not a glorified 3D showreel I will be happy, but I cannot help but feel this is all a bit too late.

What are your thoughts on Cameron’s plans?

    > I rented from RedBox.. within 20 min I was bored. within 40 min I was saying the next line (1st time seeing it/ predictable) and started making up my own MST3000 treatment for the remainder of the movie, just to get through it. I want my 2 hours of life back, James Cameron!..
