I was just wondering yesterday when we are going to get more information on the upcoming Avatar sequels. Today, James Cameron has today offered EW an update regarding his plans for the Avatar sequels. Trilogy of Avatar sequels is on the way with Avatar 2 expected to hit the big screen in 2017.
“I’m in the process of doing another pass through all three scripts right now,” Cameron says of theAvatar sequels’ current status. “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].”
Cast members includes Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver, Avatar 2 and two additional Avatar sequels will be produced by Cameron and Jon Landau through their Lightstorm Entertainment. The sequels are currently being written by Cameron along with Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman, and Shane Salerno.
“[Y]ou have to challenge yourself,” he says. “Obviously, expectations are going to be very high on these films, especially on ‘Avatar 2,’ to make sure it wasn’t just some big fluke the first time. So we’ve got to deliver. I’ve created a nice rod for my own back, so they say.”
