The journey of ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ in movie theaters is about to turn three weeks; More than enough time for James Cameron’s new epic to approach the impressive figure of 1.5 billion dollars raised and for the first details about its continuation to have already begun to emerge, which will arrive in 2024 with a new one —and unfriendly—Na’vi tribe under arm.
So far, all correct and within the expected. What has been surprising is that part of the team responsible for the franchise has decided to take a considerable time jump to start throwing clues about what we will see in no less than ‘Avatar 5’; a fifth installment that will take us away from Pandora to immerse ourselves in our planet Earth.
This has been confirmed by the producer Jon Landau during a conversation with Gizmodo.
“Well, it’s fun. I wasn’t going to talk about it, but I’ve heard that Jim has already done it. In the fifth movie there’s a part of the story where we go to Earth. And we’re going to do it to open your eyes of the people and those of Neytiri to what exists on it. The land is not only represented by the RDA. Just as you are defined by the choices you have made in life, not all humans are evil. Not all Na ‘vi are good. And that’s the case here on Earth. We want to expose Neytiri to that.”
To these statements we must add those of a Ben Procterproduction designer of ‘The sense of water’, which has called the trip to the Land of Neytiri and company of “one of the most exciting elements” Y “most touching” of the entire saga, and who has suggested that the landing on the blue planet will have a strong environmental component as a warning.
Unfortunately, we will have to wait, at least, for a distant 2026 —everything indicates that it will end up being closer to 2029— to see what all these ideas translate into which, for the moment, are still only projected on paper.
