James Cameron Is Describing ‘Avatar’ sequels as “Episodic Television”
James Cameron is describing the upcoming Avatar sequels as episodic television. But does that work on the big screen?
“We know exactly what we’re doing. We know what these movies are gonna be. We just have to go through the process of getting them done. So ideally two years from now, (‘Avatar 3’) comes out, ideally, maybe three years after that (‘Avatar 4’) comes out, and then ideally maybe a couple of years after that (‘Avatar 5’) comes out.” Cameron said in an interview with TheWrap.
“If they’re gonna invest in these characters, if they’re gonna invest in this world, we want to give it to them at a regular cadence. That was the game plan,” Cameron continued. “(The collective films are) really one big story, but it’s like episodic television. Each one has its own proximal resolution. The character problems continue across the cut.”
Have you seen Avatar 2 yet? What do you think about Cameron’s overall plan for the franchise?
