James Cameron’s Avatar will have three sequels


james cameron on setWe will see more of Pandora as James Cameron starts filming Avatar’s three sequels. Cameron enlisted the help of screenwriters Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planets of the Apes), and Shane Salerno (Savages, Salinger). Filming for the three movies will be done simultaneously starting next year. The wait at the cinemas will still be long, though. The first sequel will be released in December 2016 and the others will follow in 2017 and 2018. The films are still produced by Cameron and Jon Landau under the Lightstorm Entertainment banner. The same team at WETA Digital will work on bringing the Pandora Universe to life in all films. The original movie is the highest grossing film and top-selling Blu-Ray disc of all time. It garnered several nominations and won Golden Globe awards for Best Motion Picture and Best Director in 2010. Words Elaine Cotoner
