Producer Jon Landau talked a little about Avatar 2 recently: sequel set-ups, underwater action, and revisiting old places was the subjects at hand.
“Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment – a different setting within Pandora. And I’m going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won’t be a rain forest. I’m not saying we won’t see what we’ve already seen; we’ll see more of that as well.”
“Water will be a part of the movie, but it won’t be all of the movie, ” Landau said. “There’s been a lot of rumors that it’s an underwater movie – it’s not. Just like the Floating Mountains, and the Na’vi’s interaction with the mountains, were a part of Avatar, it’ll be the same type of thing.”
Landau also added that Avatar 2 won’t end with a cliffhanger or lead-in to the third film.
“The next [film] will kick off where the next last one ended, but, just like Avatar resolved itself and doesn’t feel like a set-up to another movie, you don’t want Avatar 2 to feel like a set up for 3,” he said.
The Avatar: Extended Collector’s Edition will be available next Tuesday.
