Sigourney Weaver on her role in the next three Avatar films

News Simon Brew 12 May 2014 - 06:29

Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 are all set to feature Sigourney Weaver - and she's briefly been talking about the films...

James Cameron is currently in pre-production on his three upcoming Avatar sequels, the first of which is due in cinemas at the end of 2016.

One of the returning cast for the new Avatar films will be Sigourney Weaver, and she's set to appear in Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4, which are all shooting back to back. Chatting to Vulture, she said that "it will be awesome. I can't even imagine what I am taking on - and what James Cameron is taking on - with filming three Avatars at once".

She added a hint regarding her involvement and character in the new films, saying that "it will be challenging for me. I can't talk about it, but my part is a little different in each one. I'll transform somewhat".

We'll get a clearer idea just what she means come December 2016.

As long as I am given the option to watch them in 2D then all good and well. So far every movie I've seen that was "meant to be seen in 3D" (including Avatar and Gravity) have been far better in 2D. I'm not knocking these sequels but I can already see the potential for all that awful 3D enforcement at cinemas. I had no 2D option for Dredd, I can see the same happening here.

I want them all in IMAX, HFR, 3D and Occulus Rift at the same time. Make it happen!

I really don't know how you can make a movie so CGI-heavy in two years.

But.... didnt she die?

There's 3 films I am in no rush to see.

no doubt a personification of Eywa, seeing as she's dead.

My guess is that they'll go for some type of plant-clones or zombies with the memories of people who've died on Pandora, as Stephen Lang is also supposedly returning. Considering how sinister the hive-mind of the Pandoran ecology is, it would make sense for the whole moon to be revealed as an Old God.

A good example of how well Gravity works outside of 3D is that I watched it on a regular computer screen and still felt strongly reminded of my fear of heights.


Mogo, The Living Planet.

Yeah, I agree. She'll be the audience-friendly represtation of Eywa.

haha, my word... I'm so sounding like a 'hater' but i reckon these 3, yes '3'!!!! Avatar films are going to be dobbins


Apparently, she will appear as a telekinetic patch of moss.

Sounds like she's incoperated into that world tree and it's affected by other souls it touches as time goes on?

He already has a lot of stuff he can use from the first one.

3D certainly isn't for everyone. I thought Avatar and Gravity were great in 3D. Jurassic Park was as well.
