Sigourney Weaver To Return As A Fresh Character In AVATAR Sequel

While James Cameron's Avatar sequel has gotten off to a slow start, it is still coming together, as Cameron not only has plans for a second film, but for a THIRD and FOURTH as well. Not much has been revealed about the sequel yet, save for some minor updates from the director on castings and script updates and such. However, During a recent interview with the guys over THR, Cameron stated that longtime friend Sigourney Weaver will return for the second film as an entirely new character. Check out the quote from the director below.

Sigourney and I have a long creative history, dating back to 1985 when we made Aliens. We're good friends who've always worked well together,so it just feels right that she's coming back for the Avatar sequels. Her character of Grace Augustine, as fans know, died in the first movie, so she's playing a different and in many ways more challenging character in the upcoming films. We’re both looking forward to this new creative challenge, the latest chapter in our long and continuing collaboration.


AVATAR takes us to a spectacular new world beyond our imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of redemption and discovery, as he leads a heroic battle to save a civilization. The film was first conceived by Cameron 14 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist. Now, after four years of actual production work, AVATAR delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film, disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.
