Director James Cameron reveals how he convinced Fox to invest in Avatar: The Way of Water. Comparison with the epic story “Lord of the End” helped explain the author’s idea.
Empire magazine not only published a few frames of the upcoming film, but also an interview with the director. “I said that we have to play big here. I don’t want to just make a film and then another and another, but I want to tell a big story. I said: “Imagine that there was a series of novels, such as” The Lord of the Rings “and we’ll adapt them,” said James Cameron.
He added that he then had to “create these damn novels that could then be filmed.”
The premiere of the film is scheduled for December 14, 2022. The sequel takes place 14 years later and follows the family of Marine Jake Sully.
