James Cameron opens up on the delayed release of 'Avatar's sequel

As ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ is releasing on December 16, director James Cameron opened up on why it took too long for the sequel.

Director James Cameron opened up on why it took him over a decade to make the sequel of the blockbuster first 'Avatar' movie. ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ is set to hit the theatres this month and James is all ready to helm the third and fourth sequel of the film but it still depends on how the second part works.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the director said, ‘I started confronting this issue of, Do I even want to make another movie, let alone another Avatar movie?' He also added that the first part was ‘a movie that’s asking you to cry for a tree.’ He mentioned that the environmental issues and the issue of climate change played a huge role in the sequel.

James said, ‘People are angsty enough. We’ll be injecting this film into a marketplace in a different time. And maybe things that were over the horizon in 2009 are upon us now. Maybe it’s not entertainment anymore.’

Talking about the cultural imprint that the first film left, he said, ‘That’s just how the industry works. You come back to the well, and you build that cultural impact over time. Marvel had maybe 26 movies to build out a universe, with the characters cross-pollinating. So it’s an irrelevant argument. We’ll see what happens after this film.’

'Avatar' was released in 2009 and it was praised by the audience as well the critics. The film got nominated for nine Academy Awards and earned $2.92 billion globally becoming the highest-grossing movie of all time.
