James Cameron says the Avatar sequels are still in the early stages of development.
Work on the highly anticipated sequels is underway, and Cameron has revealed he is working on the scripts and developing the creatures for the film.
There are set to be three sequels to the smash hit that was Avatar, which was released at the end of 2009. And Cameron has hinted that we are going to be seeing new worlds in the upcoming films.
Speaking to MarketSaw, the director said: "We’re still in the early stages. Right now we’re developing the software. I’m writing the scripts. We’re designing all the creatures and characters and the settings, and so on.
"So, I’m not actually directing yet, but I’m doing all the other creative processes that lead up to that... It’s going very well. I think it’s going to be spectacular.
You’ll see new worlds, new habitats, new cultures. The primary conflict between the human view kind of dominating nature and the Na’vi view of being integrated into nature is the same, but it manifests itself in very different ways."
Cameron will be returning to the director's chair for the film, and says there are still some technical decisions to be made.
"[We’re] looking at high frame rate. I’m studying that. I haven’t made a final decision yet, whether the entire film will be made at high frame rate or parts of it.
"You know, we’ll be shooting at a native resolution of probably 4K and so then there should be a lot of true 4K theatres by then as well."
Avatar was the first film to gross over $2 billion, and remains the highest grossing film of all time.
