Som lovet oppdaterer vi denne Avatar-saken hver gang det kommer noe nytt og nå har vi flere juicy detaljer å komme med!

Sist vi oppdaterte saken skrev vi om titlene og lanseringsdato på de neste fire filmene:

- I can neither confirm nor deny, all right, here’s what I’ll tell ya. Those titles are among titles that are in consideration. And no final decisions have been made yet.

Før det fikk vi vite hvor verdifull Alita har vært i Avatar-arbeidet, fra Jon Landau, produsent på både Avatar og Alita:

- It's coming along really well, actually. What we've learned from Alita was just this intense focus on one single character performance. The amount of detail that we know we're going to have to bring to the screen for Avatar was just something that has kind of gotten a little bit higher now that we've gone through Alita... We're well into production. We've completed our performance capture with Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana and Stephen Lang and Cliff Curtis and Sigourney Weaver and a great group of young kids. We've been capturing not just on a stage but in a 500,000 gallon water tank, below the water, above the water. Jim Cameron has written into the scripts all of the stuff that people would expect from an Avatar sequel. A story that completes itself, an emotional journey in a world like you've never seen."

Den som venter på noe godt!

Det har tatt sin tid og det er altså ikke før i slutten av 2020 at vi får den første oppfølgeren, men nå ser det ut til å gå unna her.

Det vi fikk vite i dag er (hold i hatten) at de blå turtelduene har en 8 år gammel datter!!

Og (ikke slipp hatten) etter flere års ekteskap har de heftige krangler!

Say whaaaat?

Sjokkerende nyhet der altså.

James Cameron kunne avsløre følgende til Empire:

- There’s a three-page argument scene between Jake and Neytiri, a marital dispute, very, very critical to the storyline. I wound up shooting it all from the point of view of the eight year old hiding under the structure and peeking in. Having gone through the experience with Sam Worthington on Avatar, I now knew how to write the Jake character going forward across the emotional rollercoaster of the next four movies. It’s been tough on him. He’s done two pictures back to back now, because we did 2 and 3 together. He had to go to some dark places.

Bra, for er det noe verden ikke er så er det bare fryd og gammen hele tiden.

Cameron bekrefter at performance-capture på 1 og 2 er ferdig, men at live-action-scenene skal spilles inn nå.

Så, vi har også snakket om at dette blir tidenes undervannseventyr og at både Stephen Lang`s Colonel Quaritch og Sigourney Weaver`s Grace Augustine kommer tilbake fra de døde.

Hæ?

Gjenfødt som høy blå Na'vi da eller?

Det gjenstår å se, men Weaver har tidligere avslørt noen detaljer:

- It's a continuous character. We just finished shooting two and three. We shot it in LA and James has announced publicly that there's a lot of underwater work, so we learned how to free dive and we did many scenes underwater which was challenging and kind of cool.

På spørsmål om den nye karakteren hennes kan knyttes til den gamle var svaret nei, ikke egentlig.

Ikke egentlig?

Er hun en havfrue?

Får vi se Avatar-babyer? (spurte vi om da vi først dro frem Avatar igjen.

Så nei, ikke baby, men en 8 år gammel jente.

Det blir spennende å se resultatet av disse svindyre undervannsbildene (og over selvfølgelig) og så tipper vi at vi også kanskje får en sånn "shit, ja nå må vi begynne å ta vare på naturen før det er for sent"-opplevelse.

Bra!

Weaver mener Avatar-fortsettelsen vil revolusjonere filmbransjen.

- I think that because the water becomes another world. The scripts are amazing, and in the first one, which I love, I think he hadn't set up a lot of things. In this one he got to tell this very personal story. They're amazing. There's a message to not sacrifice everything for greed and conquest. It will take all four movies to really make that message loud and clear for the whole world.

Og så kan vi jo nevne at Chris Evans and Channing Tatum nesten endte opp med å spille rollen som Jake da.

Dette hadde Cameron å si om den saken:

- Chris Evans, and Sam, and Channing Tatum. That was my choice. I really liked Channing’s appeal. I liked Chris’ appeal. They were both great guys. But Sam had a quality of voice and a quality of intensity. Everybody did about the same on all the material through the script, except for the final speech where he stands up and says, ‘This is our land, ride now, go as fast as the wind can carry you.’ That whole thing. I would have followed him into battle. And I wouldn’t have followed the other guys. They’ve since gone onto fantastic careers and all that, but Sam was ready. He was ready.
