Background & info on Avatar 3
Avatar 3 was officially announced in October 2010, after rumors often made the rounds in advance, in a double pack with Avatar 2 as a sequel to the successful mega-blockbuster Avatar – Departure to Pandora, which was the first film to gross over 2.7 billion US dollars worldwide. In 2012, director James Cameron also mentioned another sequel for the first time with Avatar 4, which was confirmed in 2013. In 2016, he made it known that Avatar 5 was also coming.
After director and screenwriter James Cameron had previously spent several months sitting down with his co-writers Rick Jaffa, Josh Friedman, Amanda Silver and Shane Salerno to develop the direction and individual scenes for the sequels, the script for Avatar 3 was eventually given to Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. It was also announced in 2013 that writer Steven Gould would write four novels to accompany each film.
The location chosen for all the sequels was New Zealand, where Peter Jackson had already directed his six Middle Earth films from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship (2001) to The Hobbit 3: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014). There were also plans to shoot all three films there at once.
Like Avatar 2, Avatar 3 is to be shot at up to 60 frames per second. Normal cinema films run at 24 frames per second, Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey at least came in at 48 frames per second. For theaters that want to show the Avatar sequels, that would mean either upgrading their technology or downgrading the picture (to 24 or 48 frames per second). (ES)
