Siste nytt om Avatar-fortsettelsen

Som lovet oppdaterer vi denne Avatar-saken hver gang det kommer noe nytt og nå har vi flere juicy detaljer å komme med!

Sist vi oppdaterte saken skrev vi om titlene (rykter) og lanseringsdato på de neste fire filmene:

- I can neither confirm nor deny, all right, here’s what I’ll tell ya. Those titles are among titles that are in consideration. And no final decisions have been made yet.

Og at de blå turtelduene har en 8 år gammel datter og krangler mye.

Vi håper de ikke krangler så mye at forholdet ryker.

Her kan du streame Avatar.

James Cameron avslørte følgende til Empire:

- There’s a three-page argument scene between Jake and Neytiri, a marital dispute, very, very critical to the storyline. I wound up shooting it all from the point of view of the eight year old hiding under the structure and peeking in. Having gone through the experience with Sam Worthington on Avatar, I now knew how to write the Jake character going forward across the emotional rollercoaster of the next four movies. It’s been tough on him. He’s done two pictures back to back now, because we did 2 and 3 together. He had to go to some dark places.

Før det fikk vi vite hvor verdifull Alita har vært i Avatar-arbeidet, fra Jon Landau, produsent på både Avatar og Alita:

- It's coming along really well, actually. What we've learned from Alita was just this intense focus on one single character performance. The amount of detail that we know we're going to have to bring to the screen for Avatar was just something that has kind of gotten a little bit higher now that we've gone through Alita... We're well into production. We've completed our performance capture with Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana and Stephen Lang and Cliff Curtis and Sigourney Weaver and a great group of young kids. We've been capturing not just on a stage but in a 500,000 gallon water tank, below the water, above the water. Jim Cameron has written into the scripts all of the stuff that people would expect from an Avatar sequel. A story that completes itself, an emotional journey in a world like you've never seen."

Vi har også snakket om at dette blir tidenes undervannseventyr og at både Stephen Lang`s Colonel Quaritch og Sigourney Weaver`s Grace Augustine kommer tilbake fra de døde.

Det gjenstår å se, men Weaver har tidligere avslørt noen detaljer:

- It's a continuous character. We just finished shooting two and three. We shot it in LA and James has announced publicly that there's a lot of underwater work, so we learned how to free dive and we did many scenes underwater which was challenging and kind of cool.

På spørsmål om den nye karakteren hennes kan knyttes til den gamle var svaret nei, ikke egentlig.

Ikke egentlig?

Er hun en havfrue?

Får vi se Avatar-babyer selv de har en 8 år gammel datter?

Det blir spennende å se resultatet av disse svindyre undervannsbildene (og over selvfølgelig) og så tipper vi at vi også kanskje får en sånn "shit, ja nå må vi begynne å ta vare på naturen før det er for sent"-opplevelse.

Bra!

Weaver mener Avatar-fortsettelsen vil revolusjonere filmbransjen.

- I think that because the water becomes another world. The scripts are amazing, and in the first one, which I love, I think he hadn't set up a lot of things. In this one he got to tell this very personal story. They're amazing. There's a message to not sacrifice everything for greed and conquest. It will take all four movies to really make that message loud and clear for the whole world.

Og så kan vi nevne at Chris Evans and Channing Tatum nesten endte opp med å spille rollen som Jake da.

Dette hadde Cameron å si om den saken:

- Chris Evans, and Sam, and Channing Tatum. That was my choice. I really liked Channing’s appeal. I liked Chris’ appeal. They were both great guys. But Sam had a quality of voice and a quality of intensity. Everybody did about the same on all the material through the script, except for the final speech where he stands up and says, ‘This is our land, ride now, go as fast as the wind can carry you.’ That whole thing. I would have followed him into battle. And I wouldn’t have followed the other guys. They’ve since gone onto fantastic careers and all that, but Sam was ready. He was ready.

Så, det siste nå er en oppdatert rolleliste:

Michelle Yeoh (Crazy Rich Asians, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Snikende tiger, skjult drage, Star Trek: Discovery ++) er det nyeste store hotte navnet som blir å se i Avatar-fortsettelsen.

Yu i Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny
Yu i Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

Hun skal spille en viktig rolle: Dr. Karina Mogue.

Cameron har stor tro på Yeoh, hør bare på dette:

- Throughout her career, Michelle has always created unique and memorable characters. I look forward to working with Michelle to do the same thing on theAvatarsequels!

Oona Chaplin (GOT) er med.

Det er også Kate Winslet, David Thewlis, Edie Falco (The Sopranos, Nurse Jackie), Cliff Curtis (Fear the Walking Dead), Chloe Coleman, Joel David Moore og kanskje også Vin Diesel (rykter).

- og selvfølgelig disse fire da: Sigourney Weaver, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang og Sam Worthington da.

Og Giovanni Ribisi blir altså også med på fortsettelsen.

Fun fact - visste du at det er James Cameron som har skrevet og regissert Titanic og at han og Kate Winslet har snakket om å jobbe sammen igjen i 20 år?

Vel, nå skjer det altså.

Saldana forteller at Kate Winslet kan holde pusten under vann i over syv minutter, men om det stemmer vet vi ikke.

I så fall kommer det veldig godt med her!

Så hva vet vi om plottet, forutenom det som er nevnt hittil?

Produsent Jon Landau forteller:

- Each movie is a standalone movie that we would wanna go see. You don’t need to have seen the first Avatar to see Avatar 2. It sits there and we’re gonna take people on a visual and an emotional journey that comes to its own conclusion. Set several years after the events of Avatar, Sully is now chieftain and Neytiri high priestess of their clan – although events will apparently focus on their children. We hear they'll also be journeying beyond the forests of Pandora into underwater and volcanic video game levels environments that Cameron promises will make "you shit yourself with your mouth wide open!" That's supposed to be a good thing, we think...

Children?!

Som i flere barn enn en 8 år gammel datter?

Vær så snill kjære Avatar-guder, la det være Avatar-babyer i de neste filmene!

Nei, dette blir nesten litt for spennende så vi får bare vente og se og glede oss til tidenes julegave i 2020.

Den som venter på noe godt...

Vi oppdaterer fortløpende!
