Worthington And Saldana Confirmed For AVATAR Sequels

Avatar

Not as if there was much doubt that this wouldn’t be happening, but 20th Century Fox has made it official today. Avatar stars Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana will be returning to their roles for director James Cameron’s planned trilogy of sequels.

In a statement Cameron commented –

Jake Sully is rare combination of passion, strength, street smarts and soul, which requires a lot from an actor. Sam brought to the role a combination of sensitivity, vulnerability and strength. Zoë captured every aspect of the character I envisioned, bringing to Neytiri a mix of delicacy, fierceness and incredible physicality. I am beyond pleased they¹ll be returning with us to Pandora.

Cameron gets production under way on the three films later on this year for annual December releases starting in 2016.
