A significant part of Avatar’s success can be attributed to how visually impressive the world of Pandora looked. Even by today’s standards, the 2009 sci-fi blockbuster is one of the most beautiful pieces of cinema to ever hit the big screen. It also ushered in the ubiquity of 3D cinema, with most films since being released in regular 2D alongside their 3D counterpart, even if the experience didn’t get any better with the added dimension in most cases.

The sequel to Avatar is looking to up the ante in terms of visual scope as well. From what little we’ve seen so far of the production, Avatar 2 seems to be relying heavily on underwater sequences, so we’re likely to see some incredible alien marine flora and fauna. And if James Cameron’s interview with The Toronto Sun is anything to go by, he seems to be wrapt with the f the project so far.

“I deal with images in that world every single day and there are some days when I look at those images and say, ‘This is really amazing.’ I’m not patting myself on the back with that comment.”

Cameron is happy to share the spotlight with his world class team, saying:

“It’s a distillation of some of the best designers in the world and a great cast. But if you’ve got the script right and the design right and you have a great cast, then it’s just an iterative process to get the whole thing shot and assembled.”
