James Cameron‘s Avatar is still the biggest moneymaker of all time. While a financial success, people’s fondness for it has declined over the years and it has yet to create the ongoing media empire of properties like Star Wars or the Marvel stable of characters. But Cameron continues to prep sequels to the films. He tells Entertainment Weekly that he is “just refining” the scripts.
Of course, Cameron feels a certain sense of pressure in continuing the Avatar world. “Obviously, expectations are going to be very high on these films, especially on Avatar 2, to make sure it wasn’t just some big fluke the first time,” he says. “So we’ve got to deliver.”
Avatar 2 will open on December 25th, 2017.
