James Cameron, director of the Oscar winning film Avatar, has revealed some details about his plans for the Avatar trilogy and those plans obviously include the latest technology.
In an interview with RTL, Cameron mentioned that he’s thinking of shooting the next three films in 4K resolution and possibly at a high-frame rate, at least partially.
“[We’re] looking at high frame rate. I’m studying that. I haven’t made a final decision yet, whether the entire film will be made at high frame rate or parts of it. You know, we’ll be shooting at a native resolution of probably 4K and so then there should be a lot of true 4K theaters by then as well.”
The director is currently preparing the huge amounts of software necessary to create the world of Pandora, as well as developing the scripts and characters for the next three films. He’s making fans of the franchise excited with promises that: “You’ll see new worlds, new habitats, new cultures. The primary conflict between the human view kind of dominating nature and the Na’vi view of being integrated into nature is the same, but it manifests itself in very different ways.”
The Avatar trilogy will arrive in December 2016, 2017 and 2018, which will keep fans happy around Christmas time.
