Avatar Madness Continues

Alright all you Na'vi groupies out there, hold onto your hair braids cause I'm about to bring some Avatar news with the fury of Eywa. Because the film is coming out on DVD on Thursday (Earth day) Cameron is back on the media trail making geeks salivate. So here are your juicy Pandora pieces

1. Avatar 2 will feature the oceans of Pandora. Not really a surprise since Cameron is obsessed with the ocean.

And I’m going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won’t be a rain forest. I’m not saying we won’t see what we’ve already seen; we’ll see more of that as well.
2. Avatar will be released in theaters again this summer with six new minutes of footage. In a refreshing twist Cameron actually says that this is partially, wait, I mean completely, motivated by wanting more money ( and also showing all those wanna be 3D films how it's done)

We’re working on finishing an additional six minutes of the film -- which includes a lot of Wetawork -- for a theatrical re-release in August. We were sold out of our Imax performances right up to the moment until they were contractually obligated to switch to “Alice in Wonderland,” so we know we left money on the table there.
Wait a minute, I thought this was about saving the Earth, not getting that money. Hey, Jim, just like Wu-Tang, Cash Rules Everything Around Me.
