James Cameron On “Avatar” Sequels

James Cameron says that his upcoming two “Avatar” films will not form a trilogy he tells Fox News.

“we’re shooting two films back-to-back, so I’m writing two scripts, not one, which will complete a [three]-film story arc – not really a trilogy, but just an overall character arc so I’m pretty excited about that. we’re doing a lot of preliminary work right now on new software and new animation techniques and so on. we’re creating a new facility in Manhattan Beach so everybody that’s not already dead is coming back.”

Does this likely mean there’ll could be more “Avatar” films after the third should it fare well? Asked about the pressure, Cameron says “There’s always an expectation… My job is take the audience on a journey and entertain them. The second I am sitting down writing, I just go to Pandora. I don’t think about that stuff, about standing on a red carpet. It has its own life, really. The characters have their own lives.”
