Avatar 2 is a planned sequel to the 2009 film Avatar. The film has been mentioned by producer James Cameron, who will also be the director. Cameron has already confirmed the sequel , which will be shot before Battle Angel.
Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana have signed for a trilogy. It is also rumored that Stephen Lang will return asMiles Quaritch, though he was killed in the end of Avatar. In an interview, Lang discussed the possibility of a return, saying “It’s not over while I’ve still got DNA” hinting towards a possible resurrection of Quaritch. In a later interview, while promoting Terra Nova, Lang said that he could only say that he would continue to be a part of theAvatar team, whether he was in the sequels or not. Recently it has been confirmed that Joel David Moore will return as Norm Spellman. At the Golden Globes, Sigourney Weaver hinted at the return of her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, in some form, saying, “If you look at the footage, I don’t really… I go somewhere, right? It’s science fiction. Anything can happen.” The actress later confirmed that she and Cameron had agreed to bring Grace back, commenting, “I’m actually in the tree. I can’t promise anything, but I think James Cameron wants to bring the family together”, referring to Grace, Jake, Norm, and the other humans that stayed on Pandora or helped the Na’vi. On April 20, 2010 CCH Pounder confirmed that she would return as the Omaticaya Tsahìk Mo’at. Michelle Rodriguez, when asked about the sequel, said that Avatar was like working on Star Wars, and she hoped Trudy Chacon could be in Avatar’s sequel.
Giovanni Ribisi has also hinted at a possible return as Parker Selfridge. When asked if he had any information on the sequel that he could share, he said: “Yeah, who knows.” He later stated, when asked if he was allowed to say anything about the sequel: “I’m not allowed to say anything.” After the interviewer stated that it was “Totally cool”, Ribisi responded: “But we’ll see.” When interviewed by George Lopez about returning for a sequel, Ribisi stated that there had been talk of him returning and it would be “a privelege” to come back in the sequel. Another interview has quoted him as referencing his character’s departure from Pandora rather than death, and that there have been many “allusions” to that. Dileep Rao also told reporters he was unable to confirm whether or not he would return for an Avatar sequel, but hinted that the humans would return as the main antagonists.
In January 2011, James Cameron confirmed that most characters would return for Avatar 2, “Basically, if you survived the first film, you get to be in the second film, at least in some form.” In a more recent interview, Sigourney Weaver further commented on returning for an Avatar sequel, stating that James Cameron has already told Weaver the stories for the second and third installments of the Avatar film series. Weaver also commented on her return after a supposed death in the first film, stating that, “Jim [Cameron] says no one ever dies in science fiction.”
In an interview in April 2012, producer Jon Landau said that Avatar 2 will be released in 2015 at the earliest. WETA is working out underwater performance capture for underwater scenes. On the underwater scenes, Landau said “It’s going to be like the Floating Mountains in the first movie. It’s not going to be all underwater; it’s going to be a place we go to, leave and come back to.”
At the premiere for Fast & Furious 6, Michelle Rodriguez denied her involvment in the film thus far, stating that, despite previous rumors, Cameron had yet to contact her about a role in it, but added that the word of Avatar was a “secret, secret, secret world” and implied that many of the cast members, herself included, probably wouldn’t know if they were involved in the film or not until the film started pre-production.
