For the better part of a decade, filmmaker James Cameron has teased the sequels to the 2009 hit Avatar, a flick that went on to become the highest grossing movie of all time, beating out Cameron’s previous opus, Titanic. At the time, it was the pinnacle of what technology had to offer, greatly taking advantage of the 3D gimmick and motion performance to offer an experience unlike anything we’d ever seen before…even if it was in service of a story we’d seen roughly 87,000 times.
It makes sense that we’d be getting a sequel, but if the first two sequels are a hit, we can pretty much expect there to be four sequels to the original. If our math is correct (and I’ve had years to get it right), then that means we can expect a whopping five Avatar films, when all said and done. But what will we be calling them? Will these movies be numbered or will they go along with the current trend of using subtitles?
BBC News says they have seen documentation revealing the titles of the movies, and according to them, Cameron will be utilizing the subtitle style of naming. Here’s what the films will be called:
Avatar: The Way of Water
Avatar: The Seed Bearer
Avatar: The Tulkun Rider
Avatar: The Quest for Eywa
Of course, this is assuming the report is correct. But if we are to pretend for a moment the titles are true, what do we think? Well, I ain’t a fan. The first sequel sounds okay, but the second one seems to be ripe for double entendres. The last two are the worst offenders because they both have made-up words, and I don’t know about you, but there is something pretty alienating to mainstream audiences about made-up words in titles.
But that’s just the opinion of a cynical writer. What about you? What do you think of the titles? Let us know your thoughts down below!
