What was Avatar a rip off of?
The movie that Avatar is arguably a near copy of, though, is Princess Mononoke. The classic 1997 Studio Ghibli animated movie follows a young prince named Ashitaka as he becomes part of a war between the gods of a forest and humans who continually clear the plant life to use the resources.
Where is Avatar 2?
The Covid-19 pandemic halted the production of Avatar: The Way of Water on March 17, 2020, forcing production to remain in Los Angeles indefinitely. Filming in New Zealand finally resumed in June 2020, with James Cameron announcing in September of 2020 that the live-action filming was now complete.
Why is Avatar so popular?
Thanks to the making of a feature length film with plenty of mo-cap to go around, Avatar showed creators the amazing potential of the technology, leading to its widespread use over the last decade. Avatar also broke ground in the world of 3D film, raising the popularity of the 3D and IMAX experiences.
Why was Avatar 1 and 2 so long?
Plainly, the major reason behind the 13-year wait for the Avatar sequels is their long pre-production state, a result of Cameron's commitment to the special effects that set Avatar apart from other films of its time to begin with.
