Recently confirmed to be hopping onboard the upcoming Avatar sequels, Zoe Saldana spoke with MTV about her return to the franchise and how series creator James Cameron explained the sequels to her:
“I went down to the studio that they’ve been setting up for the past three years. It was wonderful. Jim took us and gave us a tour of all the reference pictures, telling us the stories.
I haven’t been able to read the scripts. They’re still working on them. We kind of get choked up. [Cameron] gets emotional telling us about the story. I get emotional hearing about it, so I’m looking forward to it.”
She says she was also unsurprised her character Neytiri is returning for the sequels:
“I knew. I knew for a while. Then it was confirmed last fall when they approached us, already telling us these are the dates, lock yourself, we would like you to start getting ready around this time.”
Sam Worthington and Stephen Lang are also back for the three “Avatar” films which will shoot back-to-back.
