Avatar is a science fiction epic film written and directed by James Cameron and starring Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez and Stephen Lang. The film is set in the year 2154, when humans are mining a precious mineral called unobtanium on the lush moon Pandora in the Alpha Centauri star system. The expansion of the mining colony threatens the continued existence of a local tribe of Na’vi — a sentient humanoid species which is indigenous to Pandora. The film’s title refers to the genetically engineered Na’vi bodies used by several human characters to interact with the natives of Pandora.
I broke down every beat into four stages:
- A character (usually Jake) is introduced to a situation. I call this character, the “beat protagonist.”
- The beat protagonist encounters a character who presents a conflict or an opportunity that will hurt or hinder the beat agent’s attempt to achieve their immediate or long-term goals. I call this character, the “beat agent.”
- The beat protagonist and beat agent respond to each other using a specific set of signature character traits and skills that belong to their character.
- One of the characters will either win or lose the encounter, resulting in a closing situation that will affect the direction of the story. Usually, if Jake wins, something good happens to him, unless he wins by using one of his flaws. Anytime he uses a flaw, he loses in the end. If the beat agent wins for any reason, something bad happens to Jake.
So now the rumor that longtime collaborator and legendary composer James Horner (who has tragically died since) floated that James Cameron is shooting FOUR SEQUELS to Avatar is now confirmed as true.
To achieve this Herculean feat, Cameron is actually filming all of the sequels at the same time:
It’s not back-to-back. It’s really all one big production. It’s more the way you would shoot a miniseries. So we’ll be shooting across all [AVATAR scripts] simultaneously. So Monday I might be doing a scene from Movie Four, and Tuesday I’m doing a scene from Movie One. … We’re working across, essentially, eight hours of story. … It’s a saga. It’s like doing all three GODFATHER films at the same time.
It might be slightly early in the process to compare these Avatar sequels to the Godfather films… unless you’re shooting for the quality of The Godfather Part III in which
James Cameron’s record
I’m not a big fan of either Avatar or of Titanic but plenty of other people are. I am, however, a huge… HUGE, fan of his early work including both Terminator films and Aliens, to name a few.
Cameron’s movies have made more than the annual GDP of many countries. He’s also made a highly-successful career by doing whatever he wants for several decades and I deeply admire him for that. Avatar is clearly his baby and he’s all-in on this world
So, are we ready to support 4 sequels?
I think the public has moved on from Avatar.
It’s been 10 years since we were wowed at the theater and we’ve seen some stunning successful blockbusters since that time. Many of those blockbusters are using the same special effects techniques that made Avatar stand out, and they have had a decade to establish their own fanbase.
Even television productions like The Mandalorian are now employing the bleeding-edge tech that Avatar used to have as a competitive advantage. Frankly, audiences are not dazzled by that look now… they expect it.
The market that James Cameron will enter with his four Avatar sequels is going to present some exceptionally stiff competition.
Conclusion ; Avatar is an amazing movie, but the prejudice and racism is a close mirror to America’s past. Colonel Miles quaritch could be an English man coming to America to claim it for his country and take it from the Native Americans. His body language and facial expressions paired with his speech show his prejudice for the Pandora inhabitants, the Na’vi. He tries to put on airs of superiority and shows his racists tendencies when he talks. This is a man who has little to no respect for anyone but himself.
