Sure but it can work like a Battlestar Galactica, where you don't know who is what

And if Cameron can write a better movie, it could be more nuanced, where you don't hate the humans 100% and love the Navi 100%.

I'm not sure how that would work either, or why you'd make another film without the same characters and culture you established to thoroughly in the first film, just to look at another planet. Granted if that's his idea of a sequel, and he does want to build a new story from scratch, more or less keeping in tune with the concept of the avatars as a jumping point, I'd still be game. But it seems a bit silly.

^Yeah, IDK if Avatar is a good foundation for sequels...know what I mean? The story is over, the Na'vi won, the humans left...

What else could possibly happen?

The sequel needs Bill Paxton. Preferably in the role of a used car salesman who makes up elaborate stories to sleep with Na'vi women.

One of the first thoughts I had leaving the film was "OK, there's no way in 6-12 years this corporation isn't going to come back to this planet with a lot more firepower and a hell of a plan (and Bill Paxton) to get back to business" so I could see something like that happening. However, I think the only real way to do a truly original sequel is to more or less abandon the entire story of the first film and just run with the avatar concept itself in a new scenario, but with all the talk of wanting to capitalize on this thoroughly-designed world and what not, I can't see it all just being dumped for something entirely new.

Knowing Cameron, he'll replace the Navi with little brown furry creatures called Awox, Jake Sully will be replaced by Dan Bolo - along with lovable side kick Newbakka, and there will be awesome special effects and a racer-bike sequence and no fucking story whatsoever and it will make another billion dollars for this two bit hack. God, he makes me angry. Ugh. "That is NOT a Moon..."

I would like a sequel if Cameron made it in a Stanislaw Lem/2001 style to fuck with the mainstream. I would like to see some non-humanoid aliens.

So your saying that there is a strong possibly that the next “Avatar” film will basically be “Avatar” just with a bigger battle…

Now just sounds a little stupid…


But if Bill Paxton is gunna be involved, then I'm all for it!



Here’s a question for you guys to ponder:
Does “Avatar” take place during the same time period (2154) as “Aliens” (Forget that Sigourney Weaver is in both). They travel in similar ships, they have similar weapons, they sleep in those sleep pod things...IDK

I'm not saying there's a strong possibility of that at all. Just that that's the only real scenario I can come up with right now if the next film were to take place on Pandora and feature the same characters again and what not. Which isn't very likely given what we've been hearing.
