The continuation of ‘Avatar’ will explore Pandora in a new environment on the planet. The story will be focused on the oceans, which will be equally rich in detail and full of diversity.
James Cameron said the sequence of ‘Avatar’ was postponed again. Initially planned for this year, the blockbuster had already been postponed to 2016, and is now pushed again and should only be released by the end of 2017.
‘Avatar’ has the highest grossing in movie history: $ 2.8 billion. It cost absurd $ 500 million, among the budget’s long marketing actions. The value is by far the highest in Hollywood cinema.
Avatar 2 and 3 will be filmed simultaneously.
“The role of the protagonist Jack Sully was offered to Matt Damon (‘The Bourne Ultimatum’) and Jake Gyllenhaal (‘Prince of Persia’) and both refused.
James Cameron, who has always considered ‘Avatar’ the creation of a new world and a new mythology, will begin work on the scripts in early 2011 with plans to start production later this year.
“In the second and third films, each with a beginning, middle and end, but contributing to the development, evolution of the story as a whole, we will not slow down the visual innovations nor the emotional intensity of AVATAR, and we will continue to Explore their themes and characters, which have touched the hearts of the public of all cultures in the world. I can not wait to get back to Pandora, a world where we can let our imaginations run wild, “Cameron said.
