Avatar 2’s story: what we know
The human invaders were trying to extract from Pandora in the original Avatar. and that Neytiri and Jake Sully (whose human consciousness was permanently downloaded into his Na’vi body) now have children: Lo’ak, Neteyam, Tuktirey. Also, much of the movie will take place around Pandora’s oceans, and with the newly introduced sea-faring Metkayina clan playing a key role.
James Cameron’s long-term producing partner Jon Landau said in an interview with Slashfilm, that they looked at all the wonders the Earth shows them, and they realized they could travel their whole lives and not see all the true wonders Earth has, so Jim made the decision to set the sequels all on Pandora. Their stories introduce us to different environments, and also different cultures. In the sequels, the storyline really follows Jake and Neytiri, and their children. Cameron said in an interview with Variety, that it’s more of a family saga about the struggle with the humans.
Avatar 2 has taken so long to materialize is just because of Cameron’s desire to craft a story that was truly worth telling. Cameron’s long-term producing partner Jon Landau told Slashfilm that they are making standalone movies that will stand alone.
Also, he told to Slashfilm that, rather than rushing into doing the sequels, because Jim doesn’t rush it, they have to build their foundation, and that’s the scripts, knowing that they wanted to tell multiple stories, they didn’t just want to solve one script, they wanted to solve the scripts for all of the movies they wanted to make before they ventured out into making them. That’s what took the time.
