    LOS ANGELES (October 27, 2010) __ Moving forward with the most anticipated films of the next decade, Fox Filmed Entertainment Chairmen Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman announced today that Academy Award®-winning filmmaker James Cameron has agreed to make AVATAR 2 and 3 as his next films.

    Cameron, who had always viewed AVATAR as the creation of a new world and mythology, will begin work on the scripts early next year with an eye towards commencing production later in 2011. Cameron will decide if he will shoot the films back-to-back after he completes the scripts, but the release of the first, as yet untitled sequel, is targeted for December 2014, with the third film contemplated for a December 2015 release.

    AVATAR 2 & 3 will be produced by Cameron and Jon Landau for Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment.[/p]

    Seriously what gives...?? In my opinion, Avatar ripped-off alot from World Of Warcraft and was only visually fascinating, nothing else to it.

    Ripped off from WoW?
    What?
    How does that movie compare to World of Warcraft in any way possible to begin with?

    I guess you haven't noticed much then...the Eywa Tree in Avatar is seen outside Dalaran City clearly.
    The waterfall Jake jumps down from is also seen in World Of Warcraft. Though I forgot the exact name of that place. And much more...i'll try to find the article to it and show you.

    EDIT:- Sorry if this isn't allowed...here's the link DBlaze

    WoW movie would be much better tho, and Avatars plot was straightly ripped from pocahontas, a bit different characters but same idea.

    I do see some things that are the same, but the tree thing is a bit farfetched with the image comparison they used.
    floating islands have been around in other games as well so... Mind you, they do not look like the avatar / WoW ones.
    But just saying.

    And as said, some things were also taking from Pocahontas.

    You've got to be kidding me...

    You are all ripping me off.

    You have two arms and two legs like I do.

    In other words: James Cameron didn't rip anyone off. Many things have similarities.

    If the first one was a blue retelling of Pochahantus/Dancing with Wolves, what is the plot gonna be in the sequels? If they were capable of being creative, they wouldn't have done a retelling. Me and the gf called pretty much everything in the movie, I called a major plot twist an hour before it happened.

    Milk that cash cow, Cameron.

    There were no "plot twists" in the movie. Not sure what you "called".

    They attempted to have them, and we called 'em all, but that's not much of an accomplishment if you're intelligent, and not entranced by OOO PRETY GRAFIKS.

    I don't care if this movie was a rip-off of Pocahontas. Avatar is new and much better. [​IMG]

    I dunno, the plot seemed pretty straightforward to me.

    The same goes for me, I didn't see any twists or an attempt to do a twist.
    Also, calling things on movies nowadays isn't such a hard thing to do, thus it requires little to no effort nor intelligence to do that.

    Specially with those straightforward movies like avatar...

    Simple, because everyone has different tastes.

    I read that and thought of furries in GBAtemp.

    Like how people complained in a furry thread that furry threads were everywhere and I had to point out that was the only thread on any front page at the time. XD

    Well
    I can't wait to watch them both
    Even if it is just milking it.
    They are milking paranormal activity (they made paranormal entity and PA2) and most people say PA2 SUCKS and PE no one has even heard of.

    I hope these movies don't stay on the same moon (pandora) as the first one, at least for the entire plot because I can't see what they have left to do there (maybe the other tribes will play a part again we didn't see much of them).
    I bet the humans get pissed and start a full scale war between the races maybe.

    EDIT: In fact you could say Nintendo are milking the Mario franchise for all it's worth with all these spin offs and what not.
    And sony milking sonic making these new ports and things
    But, regardless of whether they are milking them people still enjoy the end product.
