Some weeks ago i told you that three more Avatar movies would be released in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Then three days ago IGN said that the Avatar 4 movie was apparently cancelled and only two sequels would be released. But as James Cameron revealed in the video interview below an Avatar 4 should finally be done, except that it would be a PREQUEL to the Avatar 1:
"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," Cameron said, adding: "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."
If we add to this news the last report from Screamscape about the Avatar Land saying: "Despite the rumor from IGN claiming that the Avatar project may have hit a speed bump, local sources say that the early prep work projects are moving full steam ahead, with deadlines to keep" , it seems that finally everything goes pretty well for all Avatar projects whether it is the movies or the the new land at Animal Kingdom.
