Though Pandora can be a treacherous place, “Avatar” fans can breathe easy when it comes to two of the film’s stars.
Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington have signed on for three sequels to the 2009 megahit, meaning that Jake and Neytiri aren’t going anywhere, E! News reports.
The three films will film back-to-back, with the first to debut in December 2016 and the other two to follow one year apart.
Director James Cameron explained why the two characters were so successful and important to the franchise.
“Same brought to the role [of Jake Sully] a combination of sensitivity, vulnerability and strength,” he told E! “Zoe captured every aspect of the character I envisioned, bringing Neytiri a mix of delicacy, fierceness and incredible physicality. I am beyond pleased they’ll be returning with us to Pandora.”
Saldana also recently closed a deal to take on Mia Farrow’s iconic role in a rebooted “Rosemary’s Baby” miniseries at NBC.
