An Avatar 2 script that James Cameron wrote in a year was thrown.

James Cameron said a complete Avatar 2 script was written and then tossed into the garbage . Cameron: "We cannot do the next one until we understand why the first one did so well"

Before Avatar: The Way of Water, filmmaker James Cameron said that a complete Avatar 2 script was written and then tossed into the garbage.It turns out that at least an entire year of the 13-year gap between 2009's Avatar and 2022's The Way of Water was spent on a screenplay that would never see the light of day.When I sat down with my writers to write Avatar 2, I said we cannot do the next one until we understand why the first one did so well, according to Cameron.We must crack the code of what the hell happened.

The first is the surface, which refers to character, problem, and solution.The second is a thematic approach.What is the movie's aim?But Avatar also works on a third dimension, the subconscious.

dout Start over.It took a year.Cameron discussed this third level of production that helped Avatar to become the highest-grossing film of all time at the international box office during a appearance on The Marianne Williamson Podcast last year.There was also a tertiary level......... Cameron described it as a dreamlike state of mind that wanted to be there, to be in that space, to be in a place that is secure and where you want to be.

It was a sensory thing that talked on such a deep level.The first film's spirituality was anchored by it.In the same interview, Cameron admits that he nearly fired his Avatar sequel writers because they were too hungry on re-imagining stories rather than discovering the storyline that made the first film a record-tying movie.I knew there were going to be three sequels at the time, and eventually it would be four, so I assembled a team of writers and said, I dont want to hear anyones new ideas or pitches until we have spent some time figuring out what worked on the first film, what worked, and why it worked, Camerons said.

We aren't doing that yet, I said.Eventually, I had to threaten to fire them all because they were doing exactly what writers do, which is to try to create new stories.We had to figure out what the link was and how to resolve it, protect the ember and the flame, I said.On December 16, Avatar: The Way of Water opens in theaters.
