The man has barely started work on Avatar 2 (I’m starting to wonder if we’ll ever see it), but James Cameron is already cooking up ideas for a fourth instalment in the Avatar franchise, and it seems he’ll be following George Lucas’ lead (which probably isn’t a good thing) in making the next movie, or next trilogy, a prequel(s). Speaking with MTV News, the director revealed his idea for a prequel, and it’s honestly not too shabby. Read it below:
“I have an idea for a fourth. I haven’t really put pen to paper on it, but basically it goes back to the early expeditions of Pandora, and kind of what went wrong with the humans and the Na’vi and what that was like to be an explorer and living in that world.”
“Because when we drop in, even in the first film in ‘Avatar 1,’ as it will be known in the future, we’re dropping into a process that’s 35 years in to a whole colonization. That will complete an arc and if that leads into more, we’ll start, not imitating ‘Star Wars,’ but it’s a logical thing to do because we’ll have completed the thematic arc by the end of three. The only thing left to do is go back to see what it was like on those first expeditions and create some new characters that then become legacy characters in later films. It’s a plan.”
I highly doubt we’ll ever see this come to fruition though, as the already-announced two sequels to Avatar aren’t coming out for years. But would you like to see it on the big screen? Share your thoughts below.
