Avatar 2: Pandora's Oceans & More Space Marines?
MarketSaw is backing up their previous quotes that the first film was only battle and the sequel will be the war. They have this new qoute from their WETA source "Oh and Pandora has a lot of shit coming its way. Break out the space marines, looks like some bugs need a stomping." The New Zealand effects house handled the construction and fabrication of the human hardware, vehicles and weapons. One of my complaints of the first film was that we didn't see enough of Earth, RDA or the Marines. It looks like the second film will make up for the lack of human involvement. Possibly giving audiences even more action and battle scenes.
For all those who are excited to see more of the world of Pandora you'll be getting you're wish. Cameron confirmed to HeroComplex that the sequel will explore Pandora's oceans. This move could help expand the planet's extensive creature/plant population. Also exploring the rest of the Alpha Centauri AB System.
"We created a broad canvas for the environment of film. That’s not just on Pandora, but throughout the Alpha Centauri AB system. And we expand out across that system and incorporate more into the story – not necessarily in the second film, but more toward a third film. I’ve already announced this, so I might as well say it: Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment – a different setting within Pandora. And I’m going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won’t be a rain forest. I’m not saying we won’t see what we’ve already seen; we’ll see more of that as well."
