To be honest, I did not even know about the upcoming Avatar sequels until I saw The New Legends of Monkey episode "The Edge of Nowhere", which briefly features one the children/teenagers who will be in the Avatar sequels. He reminded me of an older Maori actor, James Rolleston.

'Avatar 2' will be a real big Cashbuster. I think it could reach $2.000.000.000
I trust in Cameron. Between 'Terminator' And the second part of it, there were about 7 years.
It's not ready, when it's not ready. I wouldn't force Da Vinci to paint faster. :D 
Else Mona would may look like Marge Simpson. ;)

Of course, it will be high-grossing picture, but that is something that would matter more to an investor than a viewer. I didn't find original Avatar to be anywhere near as interesting as Cameron's earlier work, so I should prefer to ignore the hype.

It's true to see quality from audience's side and the cashbusting thing from producer's side. So sorry for the prediction. Instead I could have said, it might reach the $2.000.0000.000
I loved 'Avatar'. It was a new and enterprising Franchise. The effects and the new neon world is awesome. Some say it's 'Pocahontas' in blue, but why should I care about that? There is a cause, why people like such movies. Creating all those animals and plants is highly creative, too.

Quantitative prefacing over qualitative is not saying much. Of course, the movie probably will gross over two billion. That's expected in the present environment of cinema, especially if James Cameron is going to be part of it. Like a banal reply to a banal remark, I'm just sort of pointing out that the financial success is not what matters to the audience.

That's right. I just think, there was much more work on 'Avatar', then many people of the audience realized. I read: Cameron employed three linguistic specialists to invent the language of the Na'Vi. He really thought on many details before beginning.

Another argument was about the mechanically look of the moves of the Na'Vi. But they're 3 and a half meter high. So the moves naturally look a little clumsy. With such long limbs, everybody would look a little clumsy while moving.

And one of the silliest arguments was, that the skin looks artificial. But when you look at it on a suitable screen, you'll see details like wrinkles and (at close-ups) even roughness, uneveness. Ok, they're blue. But to check the skin in normal conditions, you had to photoshop the skin color to a more human color to check it. Please  think about the color-effect on the skin. Blue is one of the colors, that - despite the blue heaven - is pretty rare in nature. It's irritating to see blue skin.

And the whole scenario is monumental big, also denouncing the human habit to destroy anything for succeeding. The Na'Vi weren't proud about winnig, they only wanted to send the humans away for not causing more damage to their planet.

Great poll idea!!!  My choice: No!  Who cares?  
I suggest making it an image poll - and maybe the looks on the character's faces could reflect the answers: a sad/mad person could be for No, a happy person could be for Yes, etc.

I was kind of hoping that James Cameron would become a champion of ocean floor exploration, but right now he is feeling artistic. That's fine, and his work is spectacular, but why sequels? It can only be to keep the copyright from going stale maybe?

I guess: vice versa.
I guess with the money he gets from the movies, he finances his deep-sea-explorations. That's my impression. ;)
It's not cheap diving down a few thousand meters in the ocean. You need special equipment, further specialists and so on. That's expensive.
