Despite appearing as though she had died at the end of Avatar, actress and sci-fi legend Sigourney Weaver has hinted that she will be back for the sequel, Avatar 2. In a recent interview with MTV, Weaver implied that her character didn't really die after all. And that director James Cameron is looking to introduce a few startling revelations with his impending follow-up.
"It's always a mistake in science fiction to make these judgments on the dead. You didn't really see her die. What you saw was... something happen. I think that [James Cameron] wants all of this to be a surprise, but don't buy the funeral wreath quite yet. I think that the challenges to Pandora will continue. I do think that humans will be back. I also think that maybe we'll get more of a chance to live a Na'vi life. I think we want to be in that world and I, for one, would love to be a Thanator in that world! I just think we have a big appetite for going back there, and I know that Jim will do everything he can to satisfy us and take it to even more parts of Pandora that we don't even know exist yet."
About Sigourney Weaver's new scenes in the upcoming Avatar Extended Collector's Edition Blu-ray coming this November 16th, the actress had this to say:
"There are quite a few scenes with Grace. You get to see more of the relationship between Grace and Jake, developing their conversations and her mentoring of him. When [James Cameron] cut the film, the relationship worked so well that you didn't need a lot of the verbiage [between Jake and Grace]. But I think a lot of the verbiage was actually interesting and has more of Grace's history in it and her concerns for Jake's situation, what he's doing, and just their fondness for each other. More of the relationship is in the Avatar Extended Collector's Edition Blu-ray."
