    James Cameron was speaking with PEOPLE at the 51st annual Saturn Awards, when he spilled the beans on his ambitious plans about ‘Avatar‘. “We’re fully written through movie five, and I’ve got ideas for six and seven, although I’ll probably be handing the baton on at that point,” Cameron said.

    I mean, mortality catches up. But I mean, we’re enjoying what we’re doing. We’re loving it. We get to work with great people,” he added.

    Speaking about his inspirations and how he wants to incorporate them in his work, Cameron said, “Star Trek, Star Wars, the world building franchises that have been around since I was a kid, those were my inspirations.”

    People are always asking us, ‘So why did you just keep working in the same…’ Why did Lucas keep working in the same thing? Why did Roddenberry keep working in the same thing? Because when you connect with people, why would you squander that? Why would you start over with something else that might not connect?” Cameron said.

    Producer Jon Landau also echoed Cameron’s ambitions, asserting that the man has a wealth of untold stories waiting to be explored across the sequels. “I mean, it’s not like we’re trying to come up with stories. He’s got the stories and we took the time to lay it out across all four sequels,” Landau remarked.

    Cameron also asserted how people are responding positively to the films and therefore “are innately empathetic.” “They innately want a connection to each other. They innately want beauty. And so many science fiction films are dystopian,” he added. The first two ‘Avatar’ films have become the No. 1 and No. 3 highest-grossing movies of all time.

    Ours is actually dystopian in its message to some extent, but it’s about beauty, it’s about connection, it’s about positive values, and that seems to be working,” Cameron continued. “So what does that tell us about us? And as human beings globally? Because the films are successful in all markets everywhere. And so I think that’s empowering for us.

    With Avatar: The Way of Water’ grossing a staggering $2.3 billion at the box office, Cameron’s visionary storytelling continues to captivate audiences worldwide.

    While ‘Avatar 3′ is slated for a 2025 release, Cameron remained tight-lipped about the upcoming installments though he teased the audiences with glimpses of what’s to come. With ‘Avatar 4′ following in 2029 and ‘Avatar 5′ in 2031, fans can rest assured that the Avatar universe is far from exhausted.
