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.
