James Cameron's 3D blockbuster is still making big bucks in theaters, although that might not stop a DVD and BD release in the next few months. The Wall Street Journal recently spoke with Cameron who revealed that an April 22 date has been set for the DVD and Blu-ray of Avatar... but don't hold your breath if you want a lot of special features.
"It's all right on schedule," said Cameron. "We'll do the Blu-ray and the standard def DVD April 22nd, that's our plan as of right now, and that'll be pretty much bare bones. And then we'll do a value-added DVD and a 3-D Blu-ray in I think November sometime."
Fox Home Entertainment wouldn't confirm that release date to the site, so nothing is official as of yet, but, coincidentally, April 22 is also another celebrated date: Earth Day. Cameron also talked about the impending sequel as well.
Cameron said he hopes to do a sequel to Avatar but he wants to do it "cheaper and faster." He said the sequel will be "a continuation of the same characters. We're going to widen the universe in quotes, meaning the envelope of the setting of the story."
