James Cameron has apparently been on a Pandora bender and has been writing enough material to make four more Avatar movies as a followup to the original 2009 blockbuster. All of this in addition to the planned Avatar theme park means a whole lot of blue people having catsex for a loooong time to come.
We’ve known about Cameron’s plans to write more than one mouth-sh*ttingly great sequel for a while, but he’s just getting really, really into it and now he’s just lousy with N’avi, according to composer James Horner.
Right now, Jim has got four sequels, script-wise, and he’s trying to make it into three. And that’s where his effort is going, right now, to keep it to three sequels. Because he’s got so much going on. How do you keep it from expanding into yet a fourth movie—a fifth movie, I guess, total. He’ll get that sorted out.
Yeah, he’ll figure it out. Probably the same way he’s going to figure out how to create unobtanium, turn it into the fountain of youth, and make sure he lives forever to see every single aspect of the Pandora story told in every possible medium. If anyone can do that, it’s definitely James Cameron.
The first of these three, four, or 27 Avatar sequels is set to arrive in 2017.
