Let the Avatar Sequels Begin
Actually, when I pitched this to 20th Century Fox four-and-a-half years ago, I said, 'You know, we're going to spend a lot of money and time and energy creating not only a process but the assets, the CG assets, we call them - all the models of every rock and tree and plant and creature and the muscle rigs for all the creatures and the facial rigging for the main characters and all that'... huge, millions and millions of dollars. So it really makes sense to think of it as the potential start of a franchise, if you will, or a saga that plays out over several acts, each movie being an act of that saga.
But here's what really annoys me, for some reason. Avatar has created another one of these fanboy worlds with practically a made-up language, and for years, I'm going to have to listen to nasal-drippy geeks speaking this new form of Klingon, and talking about this goddamn made-up world as though it's real, and taking this shit way too goddamn seriously.
But hey! Maybe that's just me.
Welcome to the New World Order, folks. James Cameron owns your ass.
