Remember the first 3D Movie? Yes, we are talking about “Avatar” released back in 2009. We got thrilled and felt tingling watching Na’vi-human hybrids so close to faces wearing glasses in the cinema halls. It was amazing and proved to be a gem in the movie industry. Director James Cameron did that, he presented us this movie and opened a new horizon of cinematography.
Now he is hoping his “Avatar” sequels will help pioneer new 3D technology, insisting fans won’t have to wear glasses to experience the film. Avatar was the highest grossing film ever, and now apparently he is planning to make further strides when his sequels hit the big screen.
He is planning on making 3D easier to view, saying he’s close to a breakthrough, which will change the way film fans watch movies.
“I’m going to push. Not only for better tools, workflow, high dynamic range and high frame rates — the things we are working toward, I’m still very bullish on 3D, but we need brighter projection, and ultimately I think it can happen — with no glasses. We’ll get there.” Cameron said.
But a question arises, will we able to see the Avatar 2 in that without 3D glasses format?
I don’t think so; I believe that it will take few years as the technology needs to be upgraded and it will take the time to make Avatar’s sequels glasses free. Development of Avatar began in 1994 when Cameron wrote an 80-page treatment for the film. Filming was supposed to take place after the completion of Cameron’s 1997 film Titanic, for a planned release in 1999, but according to Cameron, the necessary technology was not yet available to achieve his vision of the movie. Work on the language of the film’s extraterrestrial beings began in 2005, and Cameron began developing the screenplay and fictional universe in early 2006. After investing huge budget, the avatar was made possible in 2009.
But keeping in mind James dedication to the new technology, his love of modern cinema and his quest of finding something new, we can assume that the Avatar’s sequels after Avatar 2 will make us all awe. Avatar 2 is scheduled for release in December 2018, with the sequels following in December 2020, 2022, and 2023, respectively.
