Zoe Saldana Chats Timeline for AVATAR 2 and AVATAR 3

It's been a bit quiet on the "Avatar" front for some time now. We heard that James Cameron was going to shoot some of the scenes underwater with motion-capture technology and that the next two installments would most likely be shot back-to-back. These initial details definitely kept us intrigued. Leave it to Cameron to always defy the technology that amazes us.

Zoe Saldana, the leading blue lady in "Avatar", gave us some more details today as to the timeline we might be able to expect for the 2nd and 3rd installments. She believes that the next two films will indeed be shot back-to-back since, "if we just do two and then wait, I’ll probably be 45 or 50 by the time we get to part three. It takes a long time, it’s a very hard process."

In November, Cameron revealed that he believed production would kick-off in late 2013. Saldana suggested that it looks like they will begin production in 2014, which definitely seems likely now, being that Summer is right around the corner.

While Cameron did not commit to release dates for either picture, it is believed that "Avatar 2" will release sometime in 2014 and that "Avatar 3" will release in 2015.

The details that Saldana discussed don't really contradict the previous information floating around the projects. It just gives us a bit more hope of not having to wait so long in between the release of each film, which is just fine by me.

What do you think of this "Avatar" news? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Avatar 2" is expected to hit AMC Theatres in 2014, with "Avatar 3" hitting in 2015.

    Some people don't like anime as much because of how serreal it is a lot of the times dark and gritty where as other animation that is more popular is light colourful with round appearing shapes this makes the characters cuter or funnier looking witch are more pleasing characteristics and these tricks make them more appealing to the viewer

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.
