Avatar director James Cameron has admitted that he is finding it very difficult writing the two Avatar sequels, as he does not want to make the same mistakes at the Matrix trilogy. James claims that he does not want fans to leave the third instalment of the Avatar franchise wondering what it was all about and feeling a bit rushed.
Cameron explained to Los Angeles Times, "It's a little bit of a daunting writing task because it's two scripts and they've both gotta be done at the same time. I'm writing it as separate stories that have an overall arc inclusive of the first film.”
He added, “I don't want to suffer from the Matrix 2 problem, where it just ends, like, what the hell? It's gotta end. There's gotta be a sense of conclusion, but also a sense that the journey will continue, and that's a fine line.”
There has also been recent talk that once James Cameron has completed the Avatar trilogy, he will then be returning to make an Avatar prequel. Cameron told MTV News that he will be looking at showing how the Na’vi and the humans came to have their differences.
Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 are set to be shot back to back, with Avatar 2 being released in 2015 and Avatar 3 a year later.
