‘Avatar 3’ nine-hour cut could become limited series
James Cameron, who directed the nine-hour director cut of Avatar, might adapt it into a Disney+ limited series.
It was disclosed on The Hot Mic by movie reviewer Jeff Sneifer that James Cameron had a nine-hour cut of the third Avatar in December.
The Oscar winner’s intentions for the nine-hour edit are now revealed by the Collider reporter.
“Months ago, I put out a rumour about James Cameron having a nine-hour cut of Avatar 3 that he wanted to finish the visual effects for,” he added.
“A lot of people were like, ‘Why would the studio pay for that? Why would he insist on doing visual effects if then he’s gonna cut the movie?’ The idea is that Cameron would do all the visual effects for his nine-hour cut of Avatar 3 and then release it on Disney+ as a limited series after the theatrical cut is released.”
The 39-year-old added a disclaimer and noted that the plan might be modified.
Both the second and third installments of The Avatar were filmed concurrently. While the third film won’t be released until December 2024.
