Jake Sully in Avatar

Briefly: James Cameron will be back on Pandora by 2014. We've been closely following the back-to-back Avatar sequels, still in development while Cameron evolves the technology. On a recent Oz radio show on Nova 96.9 (found via SlashFilm) actor Sam Worthington, who plays Jake Sully in the movies, revealed: "we are going to start [shooting] this time next year and we will do two, three and four. I'll be grateful if it finishes." It sounds like he's confirming rumors that three sequels will all be shot together, "within a year of the beginning of the production", before the lengthy post-production processes begins. Avatar 2, 3 & 4 are slated for release December 2016, 2017 & 2018. Looks like they've got their five year road map planned out.

Cameron indicated they were doing three movies at once in the Disney/Avatar licensing announcement last week:

I'm not a huge fan of the first, but I'd like to see what more they can do in this world.

Avatar is a strange movie. It's far and away the most successful movie in box office history, but I never hear people talk about it it. It's weird. Like, I still see people reference stuff like The Avengers and The Dark Knight, but Avatar seems to have been forgotten about, in my experience.

Beyond the technical aspects, the movie had nothing memorable about it.

Sweet...absolutely stoked. Going to be EPIC.

Call me a troll fine...I thought Avatar, aside some neat technical achievements, was worse than the Star Wars prequels.

it was pretty awful that is for sure.

Yaaaaaaaawwwwwnnnnn. For me, Avatar is a meticulously made, visually stunning, technically brilliant movie that I saw once, mostly enjoyed, then tried to see again on bluray but was bored to tears by the story and the characters. It's laboured, not engaging and incredibly cliched. The best bit in the whole film is the moment Jake first goes into the Avatar and realises he can walk again. That was the coolest bit in the film. I feel exhausted at the thought of Avatar advertisements for years to come...
