Default Avatar 4 To Be A Prequel

Quote:
Earlier this week, producer Jon Landau clarified the rumor that a fourth Avatar movie is in the works, saying that they are only doing the second and third films back-to-back for now. But, as James Cameron said previously, he does have an idea for a fourth film.

MTV caught up with the filmmaker, who revealed that the fourth installment would be a prequel.

"I haven't really put pen to paper on it, but basically it goes back to the early expeditions of Pandora, and kind of what went wrong with the humans and the Na'vi and what that was like to be an explorer and living in that world," he said, adding, "Because when we drop in, even in the first film in 'Avatar 1,' as it will be known in the future, we're dropping into a process that's 35 years in to a whole colonization. That will complete an arc and if that leads into more, we'll start, not imitating 'Star Wars,' but it's a logical thing to do because we'll have completed the thematic arc by the end of three. The only thing left to do is go back to see what it was like on those first expeditions and create some new characters that then become legacy characters in later films. It's a plan."

Regarding the next two films, he is still working on the story. "I'm writing two scripts together as one big thing." Twentieth Century Fox was targeting a December 2014 release date for Avatar 2 and a December 2015 release for Avatar 3.

Taking the Star Wars route. Brave or foolish?

How can we possibly judge before the second and third one come out?

They're already talking about the FOURTH installment? Before the second movie has even come out? What?

I like that they're planning ahead. It just says that Cameron is taking YEARS to develop the movies as opposed to just making them up as he goes along. I mean... it has already been 3 years since the first film and we're no where near to getting the sequel. With another filmmaker, it would be getting released right now. Cameron doesn't rush and that could be a good thing.

That's definitely a decent sign. It could mean he's spending more time on the script this time around, rather than just winging it and hoping for the best, like the first installment.

He wrote the script for Avatar in the `90s. So, it was in his head for a LONG time.
