Cameron Excited About “Avatar” Sequels

James Cameron tells ABC News that he’s itching to go on his “Avatar” sequels which will be shot back to back and says the focus of the first one will be on Pandora’s seas as previously mentioned:

“That’s an ecosystem that I’m dying to start designing because it’s going to look spectacular. Avatar 2 narrows the spotlight to focus a little more on ocean issues instead of just nature in general or the rainforest. We have a planet that’s a blue planet. From a distance, when you look at it, the Earth is a lot more blue than land mass. We’re making the oceans unsurvivable for a lot of the species right now, so this is a way to focus a little energy in that direction.”

Don’t expect the whole movie to be entirely about the environmental message – “It still has to be entertainment first and foremost. I’m not going to double the environmental content in this second film just because we got away with some the first time. I think it’s just a continuation of the same thing. I want people to feel that same sense of excitement and discovery of a new world.”

He goes on to confirm we’ll explore the other moons of the Polyphemus system – “There will be other planets as well, besides Pandora. It will be a cornucopia, a treat for the eyes. I get to imagine things at a kind of fuzzy level and then I bring in a lot of great artists and they come up with all the amazing creatures and plants and that sort of thing.”
