It seems we can expect an announcement in the very near future about when our next trip to Pandora will be. Associated Press is reporting that director James Cameron revealed Avatar 2 will take three years to make, a year and a half less than it took him to make Avatar.

Cameron, who was in South Korea to talk about 3D technology at the Seoul Digital Forum, said that the release date for Avatar 2 should be announced in the next few months.

We reported last month that Avatar 2 would likely delve into the vast oceans of Pandora. We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further details on Avatar 2 as soon as we have more information. Avatar has earned a record-breaking $2.71 billion at the global box office and they have sold nearly 20 million copies of the DVD thus far.
