Zoe Saldana has been chatting about her role in James Cameron's upcoming Avatar sequels...

Now that it's 100% definite that James Cameron will be making three sequels to his world-conquering Avatar, it seems that a lot of people are going to be very busy for rather a long time. Zoe Saldana, for instance, who will be reprising her role of Neytiri.

Saldana has been chatting to MTV about the sequels recently as well, and she said that "I went down to the studio that they've been setting up for the past three years. It was wonderful. Jim took us and gave us a tour of all the reference pictures, telling us the stories. I haven't been able to read the scripts. They're still working on them. We kind of get choked up. [Cameron] gets emotional telling us about the story. I get emotional hearing about it, so I'm looking forward to it".

Saldana continued by commenting on Neytiri's return. "I knew. I knew for a while", she admitted. "Then it was confirmed last fall when they approached us, already telling us these are the dates, lock yourself, we would like you to start getting ready around this time".

The Avatar sequels are planned for release in 2016, 2017 and 2018. They're due to start shooting this year.

Avatar was great at the cinema.

Five minutes after you realise how shallow it is.

I don't care about how shallow or derivative the story is. (There are very few completely original stories written anymore and Dances With Wolves is probably quite a decent film to rip-off.) When I watch it I just get drawn into it.

*Roll eyes*

It's weird how Sam Worthington is the main star of the biggest grossing film of all time (and has quite a lot of his own face in the film despite him being a blue thing for a lot of it), and yet he's not become a big star in his own right...

Michael Biehn too....

I kind of understand that one more... he hasn't been in one of the biggest of all time, and the biggest films he's in he's not the main star (Schwarzenegger, Sigourney Weaver, etc.)...

Well it took em' long enough...

The first one was boring and CGI'd up to the eyeballs. I won't be watching the sequels.
