Pandora is coming back to the big screen soon! 13 years after Avatar, James Cameron will unveil the sequel, Avatar: The Way of the Water, from December 14 at the cinema. In addition to the many sequels in preparation, could the franchise also continue… in series? The director does not say no, but there is a condition.

After more than 10 years, James Cameron is reopening the doors of Pandora with the second installment of Avatar, which hits theaters under the title Avatar: The Way of the Water . It's obviously one of the most anticipated releases of 2022 and the director hopes to repeat the great box office success of the first installment. And it would be better since, to be profitable, Avatar 2 must achieve a monster score in theaters.

In addition to the 2nd part, James Cameron who recently revealed why the Na'vi are blue has planned at least three other films. For the moment, series around the universe of Pandora have not been announced, but the director has obviously been asked about this possibility. If he doesn't rule it out completely, he definitely has a big enough condition for a series to see the light of day.

James Cameron's condition for a series Avatar

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the director of Avatar confided in what he would like for a possible series from his universe: to offer the same digital quality of cutting edge and special effects from the movies in a TV version. Something that would be particularly expensive at the present time. James Cameron believes, however, that it could be possible… in about 10 years: “The problem with these special effects generated characters is that they cost a lot of money and work that doesn't really work for TV. We can come back to it in 10 years, with many changes. (…) We hope to do so in the future” he said.

Avatar: The Way of the Water is set 10 years after Pandora's first battle between the Na'vi and the humans. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) lives peacefully with his family and tribe. He and Ney'tiri (Zoe SaldaƱa) have started a family and are doing their best to stay together, despite tensions. However , they will be forced to leave their home to make pacts with other Na'vi from the underwater regions to end an ancient threat that has resurfaced.
