The producer Jon Landau, longtime collaborator of James Cameron, has just detailed some elements of the story of “Avatar 2”. The feature film, still directed by James Cameron, is very desired by the fans …
Avatar : James Cameron always wants to go further
In addition to forty years of career, James Cameron has not made that many films. In 2009, the filmmaker is directing his eighth feature film: Avatar. Since then, the filmmaker has not released any production, preferring to officiate as a producer on one side (as with Alita: Battle Angel Where Terminator: Dark Fate), and take care of the staging of Avatar 2, Avatar 3, Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 on another side. The director therefore takes good care of his little babies, and is in the middle of filming these next films eagerly awaited by fans. It must be said that the first Avatar is an incredible film in many ways. It remains the biggest success of Cameron’s career with more than $ 2.8 billion in box office revenue.
As a reminder, Avatar 2, which is expected on December 14, 2022, brings together a good part of the original cast. Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang are all back as their respective characters. The cast is also complemented with arrivals of Kate Winslet and Vin Diesel. At the moment, not much is known about this sequel. If it’s not that part of the film will take place underwater.
Jon Landau provides some clarifications
In a recent interview with the magazine Total Film, the producer Jon Landau, longtime collaborator of James Cameron, gave some information about the shooting of Avatar 2. Jon Landau notably explained part of the plot of this sequel, saying that it focuses overall on the couple Sully and Ney’tiri (Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana). The two characters still live on Pandora and will once again be confronted with the commercial and military operations of the GDR. Forcing the two protagonists to leave their place of life:
There is a new clan that we call the Metkayina who live in the reefs. The Sullys are no longer in the environment they know, the rainforest. They grow into fish out of the water, both culturally and ecologically.
The importance of family
Jon Landau then clarified that the four sequels of Avatar are obviously related. And James Cameron reserves for his fans an overall conclusion of very great magnitude:
Scripts are the blueprint from which we work. There will be superb emotional resolution to this great epic saga. I think the strength of the story is what Cameron does what he always does in any of his films: he writes through universal themes. And if you think about it, there really isn’t a more universal theme than family. At the center of each of our suites is the Sully family. What are the dynamics that parents go through to protect their families?
It must be said that the preparation of the consequences of Avatar takes a long time to James Cameron. The filmmaker dedicated more than ten years of his life in this totally crazy project to take the license Avatar towards a complete saga of five films. As a reminder Avatar 2 is expected in 2022. Then James Cameron will unveil a new opus every two years, until the release of Avatar 5 in 2028.
