MUMBAI: While James Cameron’s Avatar prepares for a worldwide special edition re-release on 27 August, the director has already revealed his plans for a sequel.

Cameron wants the next installment of Avatar franchise to explore Pandora’s Oceans. Revealing this to the media recently, Cameron said that his fictional planet’s aquatic life was equally rich and “diverse and crazy and imaginative” as its famously colourful land-based equivalent.

According to him, many of the scenes would actually require underwater filming. “I think what we should do there – because we’ll have to have characters that are in and under the water – is that we should actually capture them underwater. It’s not the same as going diving, but I like to keep my diving, which I do for pleasure, separate from work,” Cameron explained.

Cameron also revealed that he’ll be adding footage to the film’s eventual special edition DVD.
