James Cameron’s Avatar sequel may have a prison theme, according to an artist working on the poster for the movie.
In a report by Movie News Guide, artist Goksan Ozman teased the information although no official reference has been made by Cameron or the writers to confirm it.
Production is currently in its early stages because the team had to wait for the new technology that would enable Cameron to bring to life his vision of Pandora for the next three movies. It has also been reported that Cameron was working on all three of the sequels at the same time.
In an earlier interview, Cameron teased that the main plot of the sequels will involve a conflict of dominating nature vs. integrating with nature.
“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 said to RTL.
He also described some elements and issues that he wants to incorporate into the movie, similar to what he did with the first film.
“We’re doing ‘Avatar’ films now, so we’re making up an ocean ecosystem for Pandora. That’s gonna have less to do with the deep exploration that I’ve done than it has to do with my concerns about conservation of Earth’s oceans. The fact that we’re basically overfishing, climate change… a few degrees of temperature rise are gonna basically take out the coral reefs. All those beautiful images of the coral environments we all grew up with won’t exist in 50 years at the rate we’re going in terms of pumping greenhouse gases into the environment. These are the things that concern me,” the director told Coming Soon in a separate interview.
Meanwhile, Sigourney Weaver, who has been cast in the sequel despite her character Dr. Grace Augustine being killed off in the first movie, has given fans some insight as to how she might return to the franchise.
“No. I don’t play the same character,” she told the host of The Jonathan Ross show during her guesting.
