Avatar 2 about to enter Preproduction

Avatar is already gearing up for pre-production on a sequel, and with the heaps of money they made on it I am not surprised.

CinemaBlend says

Even though Cameron still insists they don’t have a story, Slashfilm says they’re gearing up for pre-production anyway.

Their tipster claims technical crew have already been signed up for three and five year contracts to work on the sequel.

Not to say that a sequel cannot work, but after a film like this I kind of get a bad taste in my mouth.

What worked for Avatar is that it told a complete story and didn’t make me crave more. The story ends satisfactorily, and both sides move on with the humans licking their wounds and the Na’vi setting to rebuild.

So to introduce a NEW epic conflict to a setting that has resolved just feels awkward.

Granted, I don’t see the money grubbing corporate desk warmers on Earth settling for the sob story the remnant humans will offer up on their return, and they may send a new force in to retake their Unobtanium deposits. (FYI – in the 80s Oakley Sunglasses called the rubbery contacts on the nose and trigger arms of their glasses “unobtanium”) Maybe they will expand the Avatar project and create their own army of Na’vi with advanced technology?

It makes sense that they would sign production deals for that long. While it might not take another 15 years to create this film (most of that was tech development) it surely will keep them busy for at least 3, and maybe 5 if they plot two sequels back to back.
