James Cameron talks the ecology and locales of Avatar 2
Unlike his first highest grossing movie of all time, TITANIC, James Cameron can actually make a sequel out of AVATAR, a few in fact. The second and even third films are a go, and though we won’t see them for some years, Cameron has plenty of ideas about what they will contain.
He recently spoke to ABC news and produced a few quotes worth sharing about what we can expect form the sequel. First up, the oceans.
"That's an ecosystem that I'm dying to start designing because it's going to look spectacular. Avatar 2 narrows the spotlight to focus a little more on ocean issues instead of just nature in general or the rainforest. We have a planet that's a blue planet. From a distance, when you look at it, the Earth is a lot more blue than land mass. We're making the oceans unsurvivable for a lot of the species right now, so this is a way to focus a little energy in that direction."
But it’s not all just indulging his obsession with filming in or under water.
"It still has to be entertainment first and foremost," says Cameron. "I'm not going to double the environmental content in the second film just because we got away with some the first time. I think it's just a continuation of the same thing. I want people to feel that same sense of excitement and discovery of a new world."
And one more time yes, we will be leaving Pandora.
"There will be other planets as well, besides Pandora. It will be a cornucopia, a treat for the eyes! I get to imagine things at a kind of fuzzy level and then I bring in a lot of great artists and they come up with all the amazing creatures and plants and that sort of thing."
