James Cameron Gives 'AVATAR' Sequel Update!

James Cameron recently gave up some details on his upcoming sequels Avatar 2 & 3. Play Goes Strong caught up with the 39 year old director & asked him for an update. "I'm working on 'Avatar 2' and 'Avatar 3.' I was talking the other day with Peter Jackson and said, 'You had it easy dude. You had the books when you did the second and third 'Lord of the Rings.' I have to create my own books in my head and extract a script from it. I'm deep into it and I'm living in Pandora right now. There is that start up torque where you feel it's coming to you. Then you build up momentum. That's when it gets fun. The characters talk and it's writing itself. I'm almost there right now. It's building fast when you live in a special world like Pandora, you have to live in that world." Avatar remains the biggest blockbuster of all-time, earning $2.782 billion at the worldwide box office, so does he feel pressure? "Pressure, no. It's a little daunting because sequels are always tricky. You have to be surprising and stay ahead of audience anticipation. At the same time, you have to massage their feet with things that they know and love about the first film. I've walked that line in the past, so I'm not too worried about it. At the same time, I definitely have to deliver the goods." Avatar 2 was originally targeted for a December, 2014 release & Avatar 3 for December, 2015.
