Avatar Sequel Speculation Begins

Whenever a new movie becomes a worldwide phenomenon, there is inevitable talk of a sequel. To me, James Cameron’s Avatar was a nice, succinct, Disney-style fable about the evils of greed and Colonialism –  a story that doesn’t necessarily need a follow-up.

However, since Cameron himself let it be known early on that there is an Avatar 2 (and 3?) in the cards should the box office receipts warrant it (and suffice to say they do at this point), it’s only fair that we should jump into the pool of speculation about what the Avatar sequels will – and perhaps should – be about.

Our good friends over at Slash Film have done some busy work over the holiday, compiling tidbits of info to share about what is known or rumored about an Avatar sequel at this point:

The Avatar Trilogy

Just in case you haven’t heard, Cameron definitely has an Avatar trilogy in mind. With the movie out and big money coming in, that Avatar trilogy has pretty much been confirmed. As has been pointed out by our own Rob Keyes (and others), since Cameron has already made it over the major hurdle of making Avatar (developing the technology), any sequels should be easier (and quicker) to realize.

All that’s left, really, is for 20th Century Fox to set a date…

Leaving planet Pandora

Slash Film points us to an interview with The LA Times Hero Complex and James Cameron, which was conducted following Avatar‘s opening. The interviewer points out that Pandora isn’t the only orbital body circling the giant gas planet of “Polyphemus” (Cameron really has fleshed out his fantasy universe pretty thoroughly); Cameron responds by stating that in subsequent Avatar films we may get a chance to explore those other moons and find out what mysteries they hold.

You can watch the video of Cameron discussing all that by going HERE.

Now, before you get too into this notion of an Avatar sequel and/or trilogy, be sure to save at least a few of your great ideas – because you know we here at Screen Rant will have an Avatar 2 plot discussion post to share with you soon. It’s pretty much what we do 😉 .

Avatar is currently showing in 2D, 3D and 3D IMAX theaters everywhere (as if you didn’t know).

  1. Wow. Youre so precious that one little outburst against a fan changes your whole view of a person. Aw. God knows who that fan was and to see idiots like you being a media b**** and judging everyone based on one incident. I dont care for james cameron. I dont care if he loves me or wants to treat me like a puppy. If he makes a good movie, I go watch it. And that fan thought he was doing a big favour to him? Dude, you went to watch the movie because you wanted some entertainment. And the readers are taking things so personally. Maybe cameron was under a whole lot of pressure. Remember he is going through all this publicity stuff for the first time in some 10 years. Give him a break. I would.

  2. @aw precious

    I like almost all of James Cameron’s movies, but come on, he’s most likely a prick in real life, lol.

  3. Looks like that you are out of touch with reality, or your pperception of good movies is at best pathetic. The movie is a classic as the box office sales show. Get out of the blisterry environment and smell the coffee!

  4. A lighter idea for a sequal would be some kind of computition between the Navi Tribes as a freindy holiday/anual event type movie. Let one of the competing tribes men by a chaeter or something for sully and his tribe to have to compete with. And then show the Humans return at the end. Only now the Navi have actually been Mining and stock piling and marketing/saling Unubtainiam for several years now.

  5. I enjoy the first part and I hope it continue to be good
