James Cameron May NOT DIRECT ‘Avatar 4 & 5’; Understand why!

In an interview with Empire Magazine, iconic director James Cameron confessed that he may not be directing “Avatar 4 and 5”, the final two films in the franchise.

With the sequels being delayed due to the development of new technologies, the director might end up handing over to a younger director he trusts.

“I’ve been thinking for a while that I’d like to pass the baton to a director I trust so he can direct the final two movies in the Avatar franchise. Or not… Maybe. I don’t know yet” , did he declare.

Cameron also talked about the long-awaited sequel “Avatar: The Way of Water,” raising our expectations by comparing the production to the acclaimed “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

“What I said to Fox at the time was, ‘I will [a sequência], but we have to play a more ambitious game. I don’t just want to make a movie, and make another movie, and make another movie. I want to tell a bigger story,” he said. “I said, ‘Imagine a series of novels like ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ and we adapt it.’ Well, that was great in theory, but then I had to create these damn novels to fit them.

But Cameron wasn’t sure he would return to the “Avatar” universe. He even admitted that he was hesitant to try to expand on the story of the first film.

“I had to think more about whether I really wanted to create another ‘Avatar’ because it was ours,” he explained. “When you have done something transcendental in terms of success, do you really want to do it again? There is a lot of pressure. I thought about it for a few years, until we closed the deal.

So, are you curious to enter the world of Pandora again?

It opens in national cinemas on December 15.

More than a decade after the events of the first film, “Avatar: The Way of the Water” begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri and their children), the problems that accompany them, the efforts that they do to protect, the fights they fight for survival and the tragedies they endure.

Directed by Cameron, the film stars Zoë Saldaña, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement, Giovanni Ribisi and Kate Winslet.

Cameron has been developing the sequels for over a decade. The studio has announced four “Avatar” sequels, two of which are already filmed and the other two are awaiting box office results. The filmmaker shot the two films back to back due to the way the scenes needed to be captured.
