Zoe Saldana To Reprise Role In Avatar Sequels

Zoe Saldana’s star has steadily risen over the last few years, and as of this week, it’s set to blast off to an entirely different solar system. Specifically, the solar system Alpha Centauri, home to James Cameron’s Pandora and its inhabitants, the Na’vi. Saldana signed the next few years of her life away to reprise her role as Neytiri in the to-be-filmed sequels to Avatar, the highest grossing blockbuster of all time. That’s right, sequels. Not one sequel. Not two sequels. There will be three more Avatar films. Considering the first Avatar was well received by critics, and grossed nearly three billion dollars worldwide, Zoe Saldana’s pockets are going to be fatter than happy hour at KFC.

In Hollywood, sequels and remakes are where the money’s at. Currently, James Cameron holds the top two spots on the list for highest grossing films of all time, Titanic sitting firmly behind Avatar. (I’m not counting the inflation adjustments.) Since Titanic couldn’t really have a sequel, though some heathen actually did make one, capitalizing on Avatar’s audience will ensure that Cameron’s name will be plastered all over that highest grossing list for many years. (Over compensating there Cameron?)

While we’ll have to wait until December of 2016 to see the next installment of the Avatar series, now might be a good time to start lining up at your nearest IMAX. Several heavyweight scriptwriters are putting the finishing touches on the sequels, and the movie will have both Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington back in their respective roles. And if you can’t wait until then, maybe putting Titanic II in your eye-holes will help keep the cravings at bay.
