Post Avatar as "The Godfather"? (According to JC)

Hey guys; y'all know me. Thought I'd return briefly to get y'all's take on Cameron's semi-recent declaration about how the Avatar sequels will greatly resemble the "family-saga"-like storytelling of "The Godfather".

I understand what he says in the article; looks interesting. However, seeing as we're all probably at least somewhat familiar with the way The Godfather series ends up, does this mean we'll get a similar storyline with Jake? As in, Jake resembling Michael Corleone? Michael, in the first film, is pretty much a good guy. Upstanding guy who does the right thing.

Could the Avatar sequels, in addition to what Cameron has described in the article, also be a power-holder saga about the slow downfall of Jake's new rule into something of a totalitarian dynasty? Or, if not this, Jake becoming corrupt?

Thoughts are appreciated.

Imagine one of the characters saying I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse

I believe the comparison between the two films is more so about Avatar 2 being a family arc centered film - not so much about a corruption/downfall of characters and family tragedy - but I'm not against that idea at all. Would make for an interesting twist.

PANDORA WARS
It is a period of interstellar war.
AVATAR drivers, organizing
from a hidden site, have won
their first victory against
the evil RDA.

During the battle, Na'vi
leaders learned of the
RDA's secret plans to strike
at the heart of Na'vi culture,
the Tree of Souls, with an
overwhelming show of force
to demoralize their cause.

Pursued by the RDA's
sinister agents, Jake
Sully races across Pandora,
riding the formidable Toruk
in an attempt to unite the
People and restore
freedom to the galaxy....

Pandora Wars sounds interesting, unlike the garbage that Disney has done to Star Wars.
