Director reveals a bit more about Avatar 2 and 3 set for release in 2014 and 2015 in TV interview.

Avatar Special Edition picSome highlights:

“It takes place on Pandora. I’m writing the second and third films together. It completes a three-film story arc. We will see the ocean of Pandora, which we haven’t seen at all. That is an eco-system that I am dying to design. It’s going to look spectacular.”

“Instead of the rain forest or nature, it focuses on ocean issues because we have a planet that is a blue planet. If you look at it from a distance, earth is a lot more blue than it is brown… We are making the oceans unsurvivable for a lot of the species . . .”

“There will be other planets as well, aside from Pandora.”

And:

“This is a continuation of the same story at a greater level. I want people to feel that same sense of excitement about this world, and the fictional Na’vi people. I want them to feel that excitement of discovering a new world. All the things they haven’t seen. The package of the first movie will be there. The themes will be there, and played out in a way that I think people can accept.”

“I am not going to become more strident. I am not going to say, ‘Well, we got away with this much environmental content in the first one, now I am going to double it. I think that would be a mistake. It has to be entertainment first and foremost.’”
