Nothing professional beyond Avatar 2. A 2018 BBC document claimed the 4 new movies can be titled Avatar: The Way of Water, Avatar: The Seed Bearer, Avatar: The Tulkun Rider and Avatar: The Quest for Eywa (Eywa being the call of the Pandoran deity worshipped by using the Na’vi).
Alas, in case you assume they sound a tad uninspiring, the horrific information is that they will well be actual. “Those titles are a few of the titles that are in consideration,” Cameron advised ET. “No final selections have been made but.”
Alternatively, he ought to simply keep things simple by means of going the Alien course with Avatars, Avatar 3, Avatar Resurrection and Avatar Vs Predator. Or maybe no longer.Avatar 2’s story: what we understand
Plot specifics are currently as elusive as the ‘Unobtainium’ the human invaders had been looking to extract from Pandora in the authentic Avatar. We do know, however, that the story will pick up around a decade after the first film, and that Jake Sully (whose human cognizance changed into permanently downloaded into his Na’vi frame) and Neytiri now have kids: Neteyam, Lo’ak, Tuktirey. It’s also been confirmed that a lot of the movie will take region round Pandora’s oceans, with the newly delivered sea-faring Metkayina clan playing a key position.
“We made the decision for the sequels not to do always what other technology fiction movies do, that’s in the event that they want water they go to the ocean planet; and if they need snow, they go to the ice planet,” Cameron’s lengthy-term producing companion Jon Landau said in an interview with Slashfilm. “We checked out all the wonders the Earth suggests us, and we realized we should tour our whole lives and not see all of the real wonders Earth has. So Jim made the choice to set the sequels all on Pandora. Our tales introduce us to exclusive environments, and additionally distinctive cultures.”
Of route, there are also going to be run-ins with those demanding, moon-pillaging people of the Resources Development Association (RDA). “The storyline inside the sequels actually follows Jake and Neytiri, and their children,” Cameron told Variety. “It’s more of a own family saga about the war with the people.”
While Avatar 2 will be the second one act of a 5-film saga, the plan is for it to feature as a movie in its very own proper, while still being part of a much broader arc. Indeed, Cameron’s choice to craft a story that become virtually well worth telling is one of the predominant reasons Avatar 2 has taken so long to materialize.
“We’re making standalone movies on the way to stand alone,” Landau advised Slashfilm. “Rather than rushing into doing the sequels, due to the fact Jim would not rush it, we should build our basis, and that’s the scripts. Knowing that we wanted to tell more than one memories, we failed to just want to remedy one script. We wanted to resolve the scripts for all the movies we wanted to make earlier than we ventured out into making them. That’s what took us the time.”Avatar 2 solid: new and returning characters

Cameron confirmed to Entertainment Weekly manner back in 2014 that Weaver is coming back as “a unique and in lots of methods extra tough man or woman” – it seems reasonable to expect Grace’s return may have something to do together with her focus passing into the Tree of Souls.
Grizzled soldier Quaritch, in the meantime, appears set to be a key antagonist inside the four new films. “I’m no longer going to mention precisely how we’re bringing him lower back,” Cameron instructed Deadline in 2013, “but it is a science fiction tale in spite of everything. His man or woman will evolve into sincerely surprising places across the arc of the brand new three-film saga.” It’s worth bearing in mind this quote is from almost seven years in the past (it is now a four-film saga), and you never realize what would possibly’ve modified in the period in-between.
