AVATAR 2 Director James Cameron Reveals The First Details About The Long-Delayed Sequel

In a new interview, James Cameron offers a long overdue update on where things stand with his Avatar sequels and sheds some light on one pivotal moment in the follow-up. Find out more after the jump...

Avatar was released in 2009 and not only revolutionised 3D technology (we've yet to see another movie come close to reproducing those effects), but also broke box office records. The sequel is finally expected to be released next year and director James Cameron has now shed some light on what we should expect from that and future films. 

After confirming that the second and third instalments were shot back to back, the filmmaker revealed that all that's left to do now is shoot the live-action components of the movies. 

"[Performance-capture] is the vast majority of the characters, and that is the vast majority of the running time of the film," explained Cameron. "That pesky little live-action component is going to cost me five months of my life, across the two movies."
He also went on to reveal that the sequel is set to take place a number of years after the first movie, as one key scene will revolve around Jake and Neytiri's daughter witnessing an argument between her parents in what he describes as a very important moment.

"There’s a three-page argument scene between Jake and Neytiri, a marital dispute, very, very critical to the storyline," Cameron continued. "I wound up shooting it all from the point of view of the eight-year-old hiding under the structure and peeking in."
