It's Official: James Cameron Will Direct 'Avatar 2' and 'Avatar 3' Next

There's been a bunch of talk as of late surrounding James Cameron and whether he would be taking on another project (possibly Cleopatra with Angelina Jolie) prior to filming one or more Avatar sequels. Obviously an Avatar sequel was a given the moment the first film became the highest grossing movie of all time, but the question soon revolved around how long audiences would have to wait for that follow up.


Good news finally came today in the form of 20th Century Fox officially announcing that James Cameron's next directorial project will be Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, with plans to release the two in 2014 and 2015, respectively. "In the second and third films, which will be self-contained stories that also fulfill a greater story arc, we will not back off the throttle of Avatar's visual and emotional horsepower, and will continue to explore its themes and characters, which touched the hearts of audiences in all cultures around the world," Cameron said.
Previously, Cameron has noted that an Avatar sequel would focus heavily on the oceans of Pandora, which seems logical considering Cameron's love of the ocean. One should expect plenty of new characters to be introduced, and perhaps we'll even get to explore new planets too. The great thing about Avatar is that it takes place in an entirely new world where Cameron's wicked imagination will be given free rein to run wild.
