Avatar Sequel on the Way


With Avatar biting at the heels of Titanic at the box office, James Cameron has admitted that he kept scenes in Avatar because they alluded to a sequel. 

Star Sam Worthington is reportedly already signed up, but whether Cameron himself pushes through with a sequel is in no way set in stone just yet.

“I’ve had a storyline in mind from the start ““ there are even scenes in Avatar that I kept in because they lead to the sequel.”

“It just makes sense to think of it as a two or three film arc, in terms of the business plan [Slightly worrying term ““ Chris].  The CG plants and trees and creatures and the musculo-skeletal rigging of the main characters ““ that all takes an enormous amount of time.  It’d be a waste not to use that again.

Whether or not it’s a good idea to make a sequel because it would be a shame not to, or because he wants more money, is another matter.  If there’s story left to tell ““ story that needs telling, then go for it. 

Otherwise, no thanks.
