Avatar sequels in the works!

James Cameron’s recent interviews about the upcoming sequels for the movie Avatar, where he used several colorful terms not suitable for a family website, indicated that the future movies will be as great as the original.

Cameron is in New Zealand working on the scripts for the upcoming films, and he told Empire magazine that the movies have been planned out in detail, and now the writers — including Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Shane Salerno and Amanda Silver — are putting words to paper.

“We met for seven months and we drew out every scene in every film together,” Cameron said. “I didn’t assign each writer the film they were going to work on until the last day. I knew if I assigned them their scripts ahead of time, they’d tune out every time we were talking about the other movie.”

Avatar, which was released in 2009, is the top-grossing film of all time. The film earned almost $2.8 billion worldwide, including $761 million in the United States. It also inspired a Disney theme park.

Cameron also directed the second-highest grossing movie, Titanic, which earned an Oscar for best picture.

The Avatar sequels are due beginning in 2016. Are you excited to see the sequels? How did you like Avatar?
