Among great filmmakers is the game in this new image that comes to us from the filming of the sequels of ‘Avatar’. And it is that James Cameron, father of this fantastic saga that seems to be eternalizing with the simultaneous filming of its next installments, appears in the photo in question with Jon Favreau, creative that can no longer be found on the crest of the wave thanks to the success of the first live action series of ‘Star Wars’, ‘The Mandalorian’.
Jon Landau, producer of this franchise that for its next installments has Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet, Stephen Lang, Sam Worthington or Zoe Saldana, has been commissioned to publish this snapshot in which you can see how Cameron is guiding Favreau’s visit to the filming set. The moment, captured during their meeting in Los Angeles, suggests the interest of the also director of ‘The Lion King’ in the work that the filmmaker of ‘Titanic’ is doing with a saga that has been waiting for more than a decade to continue.
All due to the development of several films at the same time, which has slowed down an already complicated process if we take into account the characteristics of these stories. Right now ‘Avatar’ is filmed between the aforementioned American city and New Zealand, locations in which the next adventures take place from Pandora, lthe first of which, ‘Avatar 2’, would hit theaters in December 2022.
Accomplices of innovation
Cameron marked a before and after in terms of film development with the technological advances designed for his ‘Avatar’, something with which Favreau must feel identified given the new technique he has helped develop for the creation of ‘The Mandalorian’. The Mandalorian virtual production has not only received widespread applause for its effectiveness, but is already spreading to other productions, as would be the case of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ or ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’.
Also, of course, the next galactic fictions that are already filmed or are going to start their production shortly, will be raised around the successful StageCraft. It would be the case of ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ and, as confirmed by Ewan McGregor himself, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Here is a video that explains what exactly is this new way of producing.
