I can't be quite that ambitious, but I hope my meetup roleplay picks up again, maybe around June

We always knew it was going to be a long wait... specifically how long doesn't matter, because we know what we are waiting form and it will be amazing,and worth every second.
Well said ma tsmukan. And as a member of this community..this Avatar family, I'll do all I can to keep that light burning and have some fun along the way until we ALL meet up for premiere night! ....

Wow, 48hrs later and I’m only just starting to come to terms with this awful news and that regretfully it was me who saw it first and posted it here. At the time, I seemed to have perceived this in a much more negative light than others here as is evident in the generally philosophical response to the announcement.

I see the common opinion is ‘more time = better movie’ and even though I trust JC implicitly, the subject is highly debatable, as George Lucas quite aptly demonstrated. But I sure hope you’re right. I sincerely, positively do.

I’m afraid to admit that I’ve been moping around for a day and a half and someone even ordered me to ‘lighten up’ today! Waste of time attempting discussing this with a non Avatar fan, after all, it’s ‘just a movie’, right?

The fact that we all still have this wonderful community forum to take comfort from, eases the pain and has quite possibly prevented me from descending into the abyss.

Having finally accepted the situation, I’m hoping that some of the positive influence in this thread will meander in my general direction and that I can look forward, with the rest of you, to the eagerly anticipated sequel. Whenever that may be.
Please Jim, pleeeeeease!

So, an end to counting-down-the-days for me, Avatar isn’t about short-termism any more, no, Avatar is for LIFE!


And......

Well, it could have been worse. Take me. I got told by the BT internet engineer who was installing 'infinity'! On seeing all my Avatar poster and stuff he asked me if I new when the next one was going to come out...I kinda pleaded ignorance, just in case he said something different to my original 2014 knowledge - and he did 2016!! Having picked my jaw off the floor we had a chat about it. Turns out he's a fan of the film as well as general film fan, but not of JC!

Oh it will be better than that, because we will all watch Avatar 2 (and 3) together on premiere night. It has been decided...It is the will of Eywa!

Ok, I'm reaching for the stars (Pandora) hoping I might make it to the sky!

Hell yeah! Avatar is for LIFE. It had such an unexpected profound affect on sooooo many of us that this is the life changer.

I would say for me (since Avatar) life has been about discovery of myself and the trying to create as agood a life as I can to compliment that knowledge and share it with others...sort of thing! Still a long way to go though, but I've enjoyed the adventure so far.

Eywa ngahu frakrr, versicolor, ma 'eylan.

When it comes to that particular example, I think the phrase "You can't polish a turd" springs to mind

These posts are what makes it all worth it for me... All the effort, the occasional expense, the many, many, MANY sleepless nights over the last nearly two years - defending against trolls and spammers, in urgent discussions on action and occurrences, trying to make sense of convoluted arguments, the eventual resolutions to problems. It's all worth it to have this community

And we are grateful to you, and the other admin folk, for the work you all do to keep this Avatar family gathering place ticking along. It must be quite a task having to sort out things when there are not exactly enjoyable situations to deal with.

Irayo ma aysmukan sì asymuke. Nga lu nìfrakrr Na'vi. Eywa naghu frakrr.

Well said, Crickett! My sentiments exactly.

Now, with this extended wait time, there will be no excuse for both sequel films to be anything less than totally EPIC!

You're very welcome HNM.
If I could pay you a compliment, it would be that clearly your passion, dedication and integrity have all succeeded in making this community what it is today.
All your effort is most appreciated. As well as all the other guys behind the scenes. Irayo.

That means more to me than I can express
I've worked hard for this community, I've sacrificed a lot, at times it's caused me untold amounts of stress, but also happiness, and without it, I can honestly say that I would not be around today, while I'm so glad that anyone else gets the same from it that I do.

HNM ma oeya tsmukan,
I am probably one of the newest kids on the block, but in the short time that I have been here so far, even when you disagreed with something that I said, you did so in a thoughtful, professional manner. You and Alan have both gone out of your way to help my sweetie and I get information that will enable us to get to the meetup this July.
I don't think that this site would be what it is withot your constant "care and watering".

A couple more lines of interest (from NZ Herald): -

'No reason was given for the delay, even though Cameron said as recently as October that he wanted the first Avatar sequel out in 2014, with Avatar 3 released a year later.'

Edit: (You have to wonder what has happened in that short time to cause this major upheaval?)



'Actor Sam Worthington, the star of the first Avatar, has suggested the delays are down to Cameron wanting to drastically improve on the first film.'

"He wants a challenge. And he wants to improve the audience's experience. He's been messing about with 3D and frame rates a lot more," Worthington said.



Wow, this had better be good Jim!

Irayo for posting the info. I'll be interesting on how he can improve on Avatar - blew me away! What are we all going to be like when we see Avatar 2 and 3? Are we going to be transported into Pandora with our own Avatars? - PLEEEEEEEAAAAASSSSEEEE.....

Missed the article below first time round.

It points to a possible misunderstanding regarding John Landau's bombshell last week, which resulted in everyone accepting the worst.

As an official explanation has yet to be given regarding the reasons behind the delay and that Landau has since failed to confirm his release dates, maybe this was the plan all along and he was being mischievously vague in order to guage the worldwide reaction and reignite the interest from some quarters in the process.

Probably just me clutching at straws.
Oh well.


'So there are reports today that Jon Landau has announced that the release date for Avatar 2 is going to be 2016 rather than the previously-announced 2014 date with by a third instalment in 2015. The thing is, when we asked him just the other day, he denied that delay.
At the event we attended, Landau made an offhand remark about Avatar 2 being "four years out" - so we followed up to check, since that's not in line with the previously announced plans. Would it be four more years, and therefore 2016? Or the dates we'd heard before? He replied, "It's in that window, '14, '15."
Now this isn't to say that the second film won't be more like 2015 than 2014, given that - as far as we know - there's no completed script yet for performance-capture to begin, James Cameron's currently working on other things (including the Titanic 3D release in April) and the films are hugely effects-heavy which will necessitate enormous amounts of digital production work. One might reasonably speculate that Landau, like many of us, is still thinking of 2011 when he thinks of the date, and is currently envisaging a 2015 release date for the second film, something that would explain both his first remark and his clarification.

But to say that Landau is now talking about a 2016 release for the second film is simply not warranted at the moment, so let's just bear that in mind, eh? It may still happen - but that's not what he's saying at this stage.'



Confusion reigns.
