Having set the box office alight with his 3D action spectacular Avatar, acclaimed director James Cameron (Aliens, The Abyss) has let slip a few tantalising details regarding the upcoming return to Pandora… and beyond.

Speaking in an interview with the L.A. Times, Cameron said Avatar 2 (working title) will include visits to nearby planets along with sweeping underwater sequences on the Na’vi home world. He also teased that a potential third film is likely to see the story’s scope increase across entirely new star systems.

“We created a broad canvas for the environment of the film. That’s not just on Pandora, but throughout the Alpha Centauri AB system,” he revealed. “And we expand out across that system and incorporate more into the story – not necessarily in the second film, but more toward a third film.”

In terms of the initial sequel to Hollywood’s most successful film, Cameron said that while viewers will revisit the sweeping rainforests of the Na’vi, there would be more of a focus on Pandora’s ocean, which he described as “rich and diverse” along with “crazy and imaginative.”  

With Avatar due to hit sell-through on DVD and Blu-ray at the end of this week, Cameron also said the 3D cinema experience will be re-released during the summer boasting an extra six minutes of never-before-seen footage.
