Work continues on Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4. And James Cameron has given an update on things...

There's no shortage of hard work being done on the trio of new Avatar films that James Cameron is putting together. The first is expected in December 2016, with the others following a year apart each. And Cameron has been chatting to RTL about how things are progressing.

"We're still in the early stages", he said. "Right now we're developing the software. I'm writing the scripts. We're designing all the creatures and characters and the settings, and so on. So, I'm not actually directing yet, but I'm doing all the other creative processes that lead up to that".

Promising that "I think it's going to be spectacular", Cameron teased "new worlds, new habitats, new cultures", and said that "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".

From a technology standpoint, Cameron hasn't yet made a decision as to whether to use the high frame rate techniques that Peter Jackson has been working with on The Hobbit movies. He is going to film at a native resolution of 4K though, arguing "there should be a lot of true 4K theaters by then".
