Avatar 4 The Prequel

He has an idea

James Cameron sat down with MTV's Kara Warner and discussed the possibility of an 'Avatar 4' being a prequel. Which according to Cameron,  "It goes back to the early expeditions of Pandora and kind of what went wrong with the humans".
"I have an idea for a fourth," Cameron told MTV News when we caught up with him at a press event for "Titanic." (A new collector's edition of the record-breaking movie hits home video on September 10.) "I haven't really put pen to paper on it, but basically it goes back to the early expeditions of Pandora, and kind of what went wrong with the humans and the Na'vi and what that was like to be an explorer and living in that world."

"Because when we drop in, even in the first film in 'Avatar 1,' as it will be known in the future, we're dropping into a process that's 35 years in to a whole colonization," Cameron continued of his interest in an "Avatar" prequel. "That will complete an arc and if that leads into more, we'll start, not imitating 'Star Wars,' but it's a logical thing to do because we'll have completed the thematic arc by the end of three. The only thing left to do is go back to see what it was like on those first expeditions and create some new characters that then become legacy characters in later films. It's a plan."
Check out the rest of her interview here on MTV.com.

Thanks to DarthBob for the submission.

 Is this where we hate on the highest grossing movie of all time?

I'm down for all the Avatars Cameron wants but first just wrap the first trilogy which I'm sure will be awesome, then make Battle Angel which unquestionably will be awesome and then if so inclined we can go back to Pandora which needless to say will be awesome

I know this is way off topic kinda, but i hope they decide to make a Hangover 3 (prequel...kinda) where they basically just show exactly what happened in the blackout chaos-epic adventures they had while on roofies and coc. I really think that would be pretty damn funny to watch. haha

But ya, Avatar prequel, im definitely down. I bet they'll have a new lead actor to play the first Avatar-Navi guy that made first contact along w/ Sigourney Weaver's character, and he somehow ends up dying in the end which causes the first rifts to form between the 2 species.

Watch out fellow Maniacs...I sense an Eagle about to land soon and deliver his verbal payload about this thread because we all know how much he loves anything Avatar!!!  LOL!!!

WTF - Really who needs 4 count 'em 4 Avatar movies in their life? Look , yes the 1st movie looked great but the story sucked and I just can't see any of the movies in the series meeting the sucess of the first one.

I say the fans of Avatar (media included) need to remove their firmly planted noses out of Cameron's arse and let this guy come to his senses and make movies like Battle Angel and not 3 more Avatars. Sheesh!

Well unfortunately we cant control what James Cameron wants to do and when he wants to do it, so i suggest just NOT watching movies u hate, and leave us alone.

Well said Violator, well said!!!

Lol keith. Yeah surprised the eagle ain't circling.

Cameron said shortly after Avatar came out that he was going to try and write a novel that was a prequel to the whole series. I guess they'll just pass on that and make it into a movie eventually.

well I'm not gonna hate on the movie, but it takes Cameron like ten years to make a movie.....sooo I don't think he is going to live long enough to do all these projects.  Just sayin...

Talking of Titanic, does anyone know the alternative ending featured on the new Titanic BD release? 

Do they save the ship and use it bring troops to europe and stop WW1?

Or is it the one where they can't stop Jack from bobbing up and down on the surface.
