Avatar 2 : The Abyss

James Cameron has a special affinity for the ocean. He's directed films such as "Titanic" and "The Abyss," not to mention his own deep-sea diving documentaries. So it shouldn't come as a huge surprise that his "Avatar" sequel will focus on underwater life in the oceans of the fictional moon of Pandora.

"Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment -- a different setting within Pandora," Cameron told the LA Times, "and I'm going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won't be a rain forest. I'm not saying we won't see what we've already seen; we'll see more of that as well."

The first "Avatar" film went on to gross over $2.7 billion worldwide and a sequel has been talked about since the release of the original film. The speculation, based on comments made by Cameron, was that a sequel would focus on another moon that surrounds the gas planet of Polyphemus, as opposed to Pandora.

Cameron states he still wants to explore other moons in the system, but that will probably have to wait until a third film.

"We created a broad canvas for the environment of film," explained Cameron. "That's not just on Pandora, but throughout the Alpha Centauri AB system. 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."

Water has never scared Cameron away from completing his vision, though with mixed results. Cameron directed the underwater thriller "The Abyss" in 1989 -- the most ambitious film to use underwater effects at the time. But "The Abyss" grossed only $90 million worldwide. Cameron upped the ante with 1997's "Titanic." Over-budget and behind schedule -- due in a large part to the special effects associated with creating the illusion of a sinking ship in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean -- "Titanic" went on to become the most financially successful film of the time, until until it fell to "Avatar."
