It’s been a couple years since the first Avatar film came out and broke almost every record that there was and we still have a couple of years until the next chapter in the Avatar universe hits theaters, but now we’ve already got some news from Jame’s Cameron on what the deal is with Avatar 4.

There’s no point me telling you what Cameron had to say about it when I can just show you what he said. Here’s the first bit of news that he revealed to MTV

“Because when we drop in, even in the first film in ‘Avatar 1,’ as it will be known in the future, we’re dropping into a process that’s 35 years in to a whole colonization. That will complete an arc and if that leads into more, we’ll start, not imitating ‘Star Wars,’ but it’s a logical thing to do because we’ll have completed the thematic arc by the end of three. The only thing left to do is go back to see what it was like on those first expeditions and create some new characters that then become legacy characters in later films. It’s a plan.”

Here’s what he had to say about the storyline for Avatar 4:

“I have an idea for a fourth. I haven’t really put pen to paper on it, but basically it goes back to the early expeditions of Pandora, and kind of what went wrong with the humans and the Na’vi and what that was like to be an explorer and living in that world.”
