James Cameron is formally returning to Pandora.
It was announced on Wednesday that the Oscar-winning director signed up to direct and write two sequels to his 2009 runaway success “Avatar”.
Cameron said in a statement, “With two new films on the drawing boards, my company and I are embarking on an epic journey with our partners at Twentieth Century Fox.
Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 are scheduled to be released in December 2014 and 2015.
The director stated, “It is a rare and remarkable opportunity when a filmmaker gets to build a fantasy world and watch it grow”.
The follow-up films will mark the first time since “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” in 1991 that Cameron has made a sequel.
