James Cameron’s Avatar 2 to Release in December 2017; Challenging Character Awaits for Sigourney Weaver in Coming Sequels

The speculations related to the release of the second movie in the “Avatar” franchise are now come to an end as December 2017 is finalized for its showdown. And in an add-on to this, the character of Dr. Grace Augustine played by Sigourney Weaver who died in 2009 Avatar film will also be there but in a new avatar, mentioned the director of the blockbuster, James Cameron. Read on for more details.

“We’re doing ‘Avatar’ films now, so we’re making up an ocean ecosystem for Pandora. That’s gonna have less to do with the deep exploration that I’ve done than it has to do with my concerns about conservation of Earth’s oceans. The fact that we’re basically overfishing, climate change… a few degrees of temperature rise are gonna basically take out the coral reefs. All those beautiful images of the coral environments we all grew up with won’t exist in 50 years at the rate we’re going in terms of pumping greenhouse gases into the environment These are the things that concern me,” Cameron said three years before as reported by K Pop Starz.


This time also, the movie will have the same lesson of taking care of the environment but in a different way, as cleared by Cameron.

The director also clarifies that though Weaver’s character died in the first part of the franchise, but she will definitely be back.

“Her character of Grace Augustine, as fans know, died in the first movie, so she’s playing a different and in many ways more challenging character in the upcoming films. We’re both looking forward to this new creative challenge, the latest chapter in our long and continuing collaboration,” he mentioned on the movie’s website.

By making $760 million at the domestic front and $2.7 million at international markets, the movie became the highest grosser of all time leaving 1997’s “Titanic” behind. It was nominated for nine Academy Awards and also for Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, and Best Visual Effects awards.

It was also announced that third and fourth parts of the “Avatar” franchise will also come, probably in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

So, prepare yourselves to witness the extraordinary beauty and strength as the mystical world of Pandora and its native Na’vi’s with new culture, habitat, and many additional features will soon be back.
