The Avatar sequel talk will never die down, so for those of you who have been patiently waiting on some concrete info we’ve got it! According to Variety, director James Cameron plans on delving into the world of Pandora for a second and third time. He along with 20th Century Fox have plans to release two more sequels and we’ve got the release dates to prove it!
The trade reports that Fox is eying a release date for Avatar 2 in December of 2014 and Avatar 3 for December 2015. We don’t even want to imagine the amount of prep work that will have to go into this production with the release dates so close together. Cameron will begin working on the scripts for the film early next year. He wants to start production in late 2011 but he’s not sure if he wants to shoot back to back or wait until he completes the scripts.
“In the second and third films, which will be self-contained stories that also fulfill a greater story arc, we will not back off the throttle of ‘Avatar’s’ visual and emotional horsepower, and will continue to explore its themes and characters, which touched the hearts of audiences in all cultures around the world,” Cameron said. “I’m looking forward to returning to Pandora, a world where our imaginations can run wild.”
Once again, Cameron will produce the film with Jon Landau and Lightstorm Productions.
At the moment, Avatar is the highest grossing worldwide film and the top-selling blu-ray disc of all time!
Do you think Cameron should shoot the films back to back? Can you wait another 3 years until you get more Avatar?
