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.
