avatar sequels villain

Pop quiz: without any hints, can you recall the name of the villain in Avatar, the highest-grossing movie of all time? You may not remember his name – it’s Colonel Miles Quaritch, in case you were wondering – but you probably remember Stephen Lang‘s grizzled performance as the ruthless military man.

3d movie box office

The weird and wild thing about Walt Disney World’s Pandora: The World of Avatar is that it’s a spoiler for movies that haven’t even been made yet. The theme park land, located at the Animal Kingdom park in Orlando, Florida, is “set” decades after the events of James Cameron‘s un-made Avatar sequels. Peace has come to Pandora and guests step into the roles of tourists who are allowed to visit the alien world, which is slowly recovering after the various wars with mankind.

It’s an incredible framing device for a theme park land, but it definitely makes talking about those sequels a wee-bit strange. And in a new interview, producer Jon Landau talked about the upcoming four (!) Avatar sequels, sharing film-specific details while confirming that the bonds between the films and the theme park land will continue to grow.

james cameron 3d

3D may be rapidly losing popularity and theaters, but James Cameron is still convinced that this technology is the future of cinema.

Which is why Cameron is flying the flag for 3D with all four of his Avatar sequels — and possibly with all of his films for the foreseeable future.

Avatar Sequels Compared to The Godfather

James Cameron is currently busy in production on the four planned Avatar sequels that will start hitting theaters in December of 2020. But he had enough spare time to take part in a new documentary series called AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction, coming to AMC on April 30. Cameron sat down with some press to discuss the series, but of course the conversation turned to progress on the Avatar sequels, and the filmmaker made quite the bold comparison.

Without getting too specific, Cameron calls the forthcoming Avatar sequels a “generational family saga” akin to The Godfather trilogy. Find out what the director had to say below. Read More »
