James Cameron confirms “Avatar” sequel dates, teases plot
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Not to ruin the surprise, but we now know what James Cameron will be giving his fans for Christmas: “Avatar” sequels.
The second and third parts of an “Avatar” trilogy were previously announced. But in speaking with EW.com, the self-proclaimed “King of the World” (kidding, of course) revealed plans to release “Avatar 2” and “3” during the Christmas holidays in 2014 and 2015.
“I am in the process of writing the next two ‘Avatar’ films now,” Cameron tells the site. “We are planning to shoot them together and post them together, and we will probably release them not quite back to back, but about a year apart.”
As for plot details, Cameron kept mum, though he did suggest that “if you survived the first film, you get to be in the second film, at least in some form.”
So a return trip to Pandora is a few years off, but if any filmmaker can make it worth your wait, it’s Cameron.
