Director James Cameron talked to ABC’s “Nightline” recently about Avatar 2, which won’t be coming to theaters until December of 2014. While we wait, he offered up some details of what we can expect from the follow-up to the film that earned $2.782 billion at the worldwide box office.
Asked what he can tell us about the sequel, he said, “It’s on Pandora. Well, I’m really writing the second and third films together, so it completes a kinda three film story arc. And we will see the oceans of Pandora, which we haven’t seen at all and that’s an ecosystem that I’m dying to start designing because it’s going to look spectacular.”
He added that the next film “narrows the spotlight instead of just nature in general or the rainforest. It focuses it a little more on ocean issues, because we have a planet that’s a blue planet. From a distance, you look at it, the Earth is a lot more blue than it is, you know brown, the land mass. We’re making the oceans unsurvivable for a lot of the species right now. For a lot or reasons. It’s just a way to focus a little energy in that direction.”
He then revealed a bit more in the interview. “And there will be other planets as well, besides Pandora. It will be a cornucopia, a treat for the eyes,” he said. Read more HERE.
