He’s currently in production with no less than four Avatar sequels, and filmmaker James Cameron has been speaking up about what we could expect from the movies when they start to roll out in a couple of years’ time. While out promoting his new documentary series “Story of Science Fiction” last week, Cameron answered a few questions about the sequels.
He went into the tone of the film particularly, telling Coming Soon, “So it’s The Godfather. Obviously a very different genre [and] a very different story, but I got intrigued by that idea, so that’s really what it is. It’s a generational family saga very different than the first film.”
He added: “Now, it’s the same type of settings and the same sort of respect for that shock of the new that we want to show you things that not only that you haven’t seen, but you haven’t imagined. It’s a continuation of the same characters, but what happens when warriors, willing to go on suicide charges and leap off cliffs on to the backs of big orange Toruks, grow up and have their own kids.”
Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, Stephen Lang, Matt Gerald, Sigourney Weave, Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis and Oona Chaplin are amongst the cast of the new Avatar films. The first one is due in cinemas in December 2020.
