Today marks the completion of a month for James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water, which is now just a little away from reaching the $2 billion club worldwide. The director, writer, and producer of the epic science fiction film, which is believed to have earned an estimated $1.894 billion at global box offices as of Sunday, has now shared some details regarding Avatar 3.
While speaking with the media on the red carpet at the 2023 Critics Choice Awards, director James Cameron shared some details about the upcoming movie as well as other information.
Speaking candidly about the third movie, James Cameron the director of Avatar series revealed what viewers may anticipate from Avatar 3, saying that it will expose the globe to two new cultures in Pandora as well as the element of fire.
James Cameron remarked of these changes to Avatar 3: “Fire has a symbolic purpose in the film, and there is a culture that is specifically built around that concept. That’s probably saying too much as we speak.”
He continued, “You’re going to meet two completely new cultures in the next film. We met the Omaticaya, we met the Metkayina, and you’re going to meet two new cultures in the next film, and it kind of rove a little more freely around the world of Pandora to different places.” James’ wife Suzy Amis stepped in and said, “You need a very secure seatbelt,” to which Cameron added, “It’s a rocket sled.”
The first movie, which starred Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, and Sigourney Weaver, came out in 2009, and the second, which starred them both, came out in 2022. The 2009 movie focused on humanity conquering Pandora in order to acquire the lucrative mineral unobtanium and endangering the survival of a local Na’vi tribe. When the Na’vi Jake Sully (Worthington) and his family were once again threatened by humans and sought refuge with the Metkayina clan of Pandora, the story continued in Avatar: The Way of Water.
