Although James Cameron Avatar Released more than a decade ago, the film’s recent relaunch in China made it once again the highest-grossing film of all time. Clearly, audiences are still in love with the world of the alien planet Pandora in which Cameron brought him to life. Avatar. In an interview for The Marianne Williamson Podcast, the filmmaker revealed that he had to threaten to fire the group of writers who worked at the Avatar sequels to focus on finding out what made the first movie so shocking to audiences.
“When I sat down to write the sequels, I knew there were going to be three at that point and it eventually became four, I put together a group of writers and said, ‘I don’t want to hear anyone’s new ideas or anyone’s releases until We spent some time figuring out what worked in the first movie, what went online and why it worked. They kept wanting to talk about the new stories. I said, ‘We’re not doing that yet.’ In the end I had to threaten to fire them all because they were Doing what writers do, which is trying to create new stories. I said, “We need to understand what the connection was and protect it, protect that ember and that flame.”
At first glance, there is not much in Avatar which is particularly new or original moving to Avatar 2 and beyond. The film follows all the tropes of the typical “foreign invasion” movie, where a group of violent outsiders equipped with superior technology attack a peaceful civilization for its resources, and are ultimately rejected by the peaceful natives who join one of the invaders. who had defected to the other side.
It’s the same kind of story Hollywood has produced over and over with Ferngully, Pocahontas, and Dune. However, something about Avatar It struck a chord with audiences enough to make it the highest-grossing movie of all time, not just once but twice.
Some say that the reason for the success of Avatar lies in his cunning use of 3D technology to bring the lush world of Pandora to life in front of the public. But later movies that also used 3D graphics to build on the success of Avatar it wasn’t nearly as profitable at the box office.
Hopefully, Cameron and his group of writers were finally able to reduce the “X” factor that made Avatar So special and you’ll be able to replicate the appeal of the original movie in the multiple planned sequels the world has been waiting for a decade to witness.
