AVATAR 2 Will Not Completely be an Undersea Adventure

With James Cameron confirming that Avatar 2 and 3 will be his next directorial project, many have wondered how much the oceans of Pandora will be involved as a main location based on his earlier comments.
Cameron even went so far as to say he is building equipment to shoot in the Mariana Trench. Producer Jon Landau recently spoke to Empire about how big a part the ocean(s) will play. He also stated that the next movie would likely stay on Pandora.
"Water will be a part of the movie, but it won’t be all of the movie, " Landau told us. "There’s been a lot of rumours that it’s an underwater movie – it’s not. Just like the Floating Mountains, and the Na’vi's interaction with the mountains, were a part of Avatar, it’ll be the same type of thing."
Landau also assured that Avatar 2 will not just be a lead-in to the third movie, a recent trend with some larger tentpole series.
"The next [film] will kick off where the next last one ended, but, just like Avatar resolved itself and doesn’t feel like a set-up to another movie, you don’t want Avatar 2 to feel like a set up for 3."
