In James Cameron's interview with MTV this week, he admitted that no real legwork has been done as far as plotting out sequels to Avatar, but he did at least confirm that it would center on the same key characters and hint that the "nasty humans" would return to strike back, Empire style. So I'm wondering how the fans would prefer the franchise -- likely to include at least two more installments, plus that prequel novel Cameron's writing -- to play out. I've got my own thoughts, mostly ridiculous ones, to get you started on proposing a direction(s) for...

Avatar 2 and Avatar 3

Because of Cameron's statement, specifically that he expects "that those nasty humans didn't just go away forever [and say], 'well, that didn't work,'" I'm dreading that Avatar 2 will be too much of the same. But I also thought of how it seems like Empire Strikes Back and could be more of a bad guys win angle. For that, though, we'd definitely need to explore completely new settings on Pandora, just as the Star Wars sequel brought us to fresh environments like Hoth and Dagobah. We did see a few other kinds of terrains during a montage in Avatar, so perhaps the sequel can take us to one or more of those. Or something we haven't yet seen.
