Those responsible for Avatar 2 have revealed some ideas removed from the film that have not reached theaters.
avatar 2 is proving to be a colossal success and has already grossed over $1.903 billion worldwide. So the next deliveries are assured. But in addition, they can add some ideas that have not reached theaters this time. Since we almost see the Na’vi in a space battle.
This is how they explain it in ewthe writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
“There was an idea of a space battle with the Na’vi. That idea got a lot of traction and we talked about it a lot. However, we were struggling… How would that work with the story we’re telling? James Cameron said: Well, give me a few weeks. He went off and wrote a whole script. And, by the way, a brilliant script.”
“At the end of the day, the entire script was scrapped because it just didn’t work with the story we were telling.”
There is only one moment in which a space battle would have fit.
Attention SPOILERS. at the beginning of avatar 2 we check how humans return to Pandora a few years after the events of the first film and Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) Create a resistance and shoot down some ships. So one of them could have ended up in space and from there the battle would have been inevitable. Although, the movie focuses more on the Sully family and how they must leave their home and travel to the water area to be safe.
The idea may work in the third installment, since avatar 2 makes it clear that humans intend to colonize Pandora. So a war on a global scale is inevitable and space can be a battlefield where the action takes place. Especially knowing that Jake Sully has scientific friends who can give him everything he needs.
Another interesting topic would be that they show us something of the Earth. Since we know that our planet is a mess, but some scene there would surely stir many consciences.
avatar 2 is still in theaters, while the original 2009 film is available on Disney Plus with this link.
