Exploring Pandora's oceans

Exploring Pandora's oceans

Cameron wants the next installment of his Avatar franchise to explore Pandora’s oceans.

Revealing this to the media recently, Cameron said that his fictional planet’s aquatic life was equally rich and “diverse and crazy and imaginative” as its famously colourful land-based equivalent. According to him, many of the scenes would actually require underwater filming.

 “I think what we should do there — because we’ll have to have characters that are in and under the water — is that we should actually capture them underwater,” Cameron explained.

“It’s not the same as going diving, but I like to keep my diving, which I do for pleasure, separate from work.”

Cameron also revealed that he’ll be adding footage to the film’s eventual special edition DVD.

It’s probably Cameron’s fondness for diving as a hobby or simply his fascination for water-related film-making (Titanic, The Abyss) that’s responsible for this move. But whatever it is, it sure has the fans excited.
