So long as you’re not bothered by the ruthless capitalistic spirit of six-dollar bottled water and don’t stumble into the clandestine torture facility concealed within the giant EPCOT globe, everyone loves Disney’s amusement parks. They earned the title of Happiest Place on Earth through a militant doctrine of mandated cheer, and with a new amusement park based on James Cameron’s unkillable sci-fi series Avatar opening soon, they’ll add the distinction of Trippiest Place on Earth to their pedigree. Today brings two brief sneak peeks at the facility set to open this summer, and it’s like you can already hear the hallucinating 20-year-olds begging to be let off the ride.

Why is it that James Cameron’s updates about progress on his colossal plotted Avatar franchise always kind of sound like threats?
In a brash nose-thumbing to the concept of economic bubbles, James Cameron went all in on his Avatar franchise gambit and...

Not content merely to conquer our existing world, James Cameron figured he’d build one of his own. This summer, Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando will cut the ribbon on “Pandora — the World of AVATAR,” a new attraction replicating the lush world from Cameron’s immensely profitable 2009 sci-fi film. The director, producer, and heads of construction for the developing theme park all appeared in a new behind-the-scenes video preview that gives prospective viewers an eyeful of what the creator claim to be the most technologically sophisticated amusement at Disney, if not in the world.

James Cameron Says ‘Avatar’ Sequels Are About Family. You Know, Just Like the ‘Fast and Furious’ Movies

At this point, it might be more interesting if James Cameron’s Avatar sequels never come to fruition — like maybe this is his most elaborate project of all, a practical joke that spans years or even decades. That doesn’t seem to be the case, as Cameron’s ambitious plans have only grown more so, swelling to four sequels that he plans to release, well, eventually. Movie magic takes time, people. But for now, Cameron has some new plot details to support the bold claim that he’s making three more installments in the franchise.

I’m probably the only person in the world who is actually excited for more Avatar movies. It’s a fact I made my peace with ages ago. If more Avatar films means more opportunities for James Cameron to direct large-scale futuristic war movies, and demonstrate more of the gruff “brothers-in-arms” humor that made Aliens such a success, then you can go ahead and make your Braveheart jokes. I’ll suffer through some wonky storytelling if it means more Cameron action sequences, thank you very much.

It’s been a while since James Cameron updated us on the status of his planned sequels to Avatar, the highest-grossing (and perhaps most divisive) film of all time. The director is still hard at work prepping the next three films in what he calls a “meta-narrative” series, and says he hopes to release Avatar 2 in 2017, just in time for the holidays.

For anyone sorely missing James Cameron’s 2009 feature Avatar, today’s about to become a good day. It was not enough for Cameron to schedule three (3!) sequels to the sci-fi fantasia, and it was not enough for him to guarantee that they will “be bitchin’” and “make you s— yourself with your mouth wide open.” It was not enough for Disney to begin development on an Avatar theme park, effectively making the world of the movie real. The only place left to take Avatar-branded entertainment is to the realm of unsettlingly surreal, and that is where Cirque du Soleil comes in.

The design of the Na’vi was one of the most striking parts of James Cameron’s Avatar, an entire race of people with their own look and language. But the look of the Na’vi didn’t come from Cameron or his talented team of artists. They actually came from his mom. Yes, the design of the Na’vi came from a dream James Cameron’s mother had and relayed to her son. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which takes you on an unexpected journey behind the scenes of Avatar !
