The Untitled Avatar Prequel is a proposed prequel to Avatar, Avatar 2 and Avatar 3. The film was hinted at by James Cameron[1] and Sigourney Weaver.[2]

On September 10th, 2012, it was announced that the fourth film would be a prequel, most likely about the colonization of Pandora, 25-35 years before the original film. As of that date, the film is merely an idea and no script has been written yet. News articles mentioning "Avatar 4" may actually be referring to this film rather than another sequel. In the years since the 2012 announcement however, Avatar 4 has been referred to exclusively as a sequel. The major April 2016 press release refers to Avatar 2 through 5 as "four sequels".[3] The current status of the prequel is unknown.

Cameron's commented to MTV: "I haven't really put pen to paper on it, but basically it goes back to the early expeditions to Pandora, and kind of what went wrong between the humans and the Na'vi and what it was like to be an explorer in a completely unknown world. Because when we drop in, even in the first film in , as it will be known in the future, we're dropping into a process that's 35 years in to a whole colonization. ... The only thing left to do is go back to see what it was like on those first expeditions and create some new characters that then become legacy characters in later films. It's a plan."

ProductionEdit

It will not be shot back to back with the second and third films. [4]
