After a long wait, James Cameron finally confirmed the coming of “Avatar 2.” However, the sequel movie is surrounded by a lot of controversies and assumptions that the 63-year-old director proves are untrue.

In an interview with the Wire, the critically acclaimed filmmaker talked about the epic science fiction film’s second installment and the rumors surrounding the film. He, too, addressed the cinema’s future and the new technology he wants to try.

The new technology’s application in the movie sequel

“Avatar 2” is set to be released in theaters in 2020 and some believe that it could be watched in 3D without using 3D glasses.

This news is what James Cameron slammed. “I don’t think that’s a near-term technology,” he told the Wire.

Although it won't be the case for the movie sequel, the producer can’t deny that it could be done in the near future. “Once we get 4K and HDR out of our system, we can circle back on 3D for broadcast,” he said. He explained that they can’t demand people watching in the comfort of their homes to wear glasses to watch 3D features.

But, with the “linear progression of technology,” it is now possible to have “glasses-free” home display in any size the owner wants. In fact, there is a possibility that it will come to the market in greater volumes if its price becomes much affordable.

As James Cameron is known for being a technophile, he speaks about technology as if it is his own.

As he is about to make more “Avatar” movies in the next nine years, the film is said to have five installments, it is quite expected that he will be experimenting to release it in virtual reality. However, his idea of cinema’s future is that it will remain simple in the next 20 to 50 years.

The real and fake VR

As a matter of fact, Road to VR reported that James Cameron would be “experimenting around with virtual reality.”

But, this will just happen if he is not busy doing “Avatar 2,” especially as the movie sequel is demanding a lot of his time. The deep-sea explorer revealed that what people call VR today is actually far from being the real VR.

“It’s really omnidirectional camera,” he unveiled. He disclosed that the ability to look around in one’s setting cannot be considered true VR.

James Cameron explained that real VR will let its viewer move around and have a lot of controls over what is happening in the environment. Although the game creators are now gradually picking this up, applying this to “Avatar” films is still not possible today. But, if the time comes when they will be able to make it, he will be glad to jump in.
