James Cameron Excited For New Avatar Films
James Cameron recently spoke with ABC News, and said that he is excited to get started on the upcoming "Avatar" projects.

The director stated, "That's an ecosystem that I'm dying to start designing because it's going to look spectacular. Avatar 2 narrows the spotlight to focus a little more on ocean issues instead of just nature in general or the rainforest. We have a planet that's a blue planet. From a distance, when you look at it, the Earth is a lot more blue than land mass. We're making the oceans unsurvivable for a lot of the species right now, so this is a way to focus a little energy in that direction."

He went on to say that the whole film won't be one bog environmental message, that the film's story must come first. "It still has to be entertainment first and foremost. I'm not going to double the environmental content in this second film just because we got away with some the first time. I think it's just a continuation of the same thing. I want people to feel that same sense of excitement and discovery of a new world."

Currently, the two "Avatar" sequels have 2014 and 2015 release dates.
