Does anyone care about Avatar 2 ? It's so odd how little cultural impact that film has left. I forget it even exists sometimes.I think there'd be more hype for Avatar 2 if they had actually started on it, you know, hot off the heels of the first one. The hype and enthusiasm for Avatar has definitely died down. The 3D fad is ubiquitous now, the "billion dollar club" is getting less exclusive and even if they started principal photography right friggin' now, it'd still be friggin' years before the movie hit theatres.
I'm thinking now that some of those shots you mention are the space station WETA is doing.ILM's interdimensional marketplace shots look a lot like AOTC to me! Compare that to the chase sequence early on in AOTC where they are jumping from speeder to speeder in the extended coruscant chase through the aerial city. Beeson is the master of plagiarism after all just ask John Carpenter (who he had to pay money to for his lifts from Escape From New York!)
