Considering that Avatar is without a doubt one of my favorite movies... ever, I can't tell you how excited I am to hear that there will be a sequel. Well, I'm actually conflicted. This film works so well as a single installment, that I just don't know how another installment can best what we've already seen. That is, if there is really a sequel.
Avatar Sequel? How About a Trilogy?
So how do we know there is going to be a sequel for Avatar? A fan reported in a discussion with James Cameron to AintitCool.
Don't know if this is newsworthy, but I just saw a Variety Screening Series showing of Avatar at the Arclight theater in Hollywood tonight, followed with a Q&A with James Cameron and two of his visual effects artists. One of the artists mentioned that they'll never again do this for the first time, meaning that everything they did in the making of Avatar was just a lot of instinctive grasping in the dark. Cameron agreed with him. He also told him to expect the studio to want another one, as they'd passed the billion $ mark. A second film will be easier, as the technology now exists, thanks to the movie. The moderator asked if there *would* be an Avatar sequel. To which Cameron answered that the plan had always been to make a trilogy of films. Finally, Cameron actually said it: "Yes, there'll be another."
