The first Avatar movie wowed fans with its large-scale 3D showstopping moments. This time around, fans won’t have to wear cumbersome 3D glasses to enjoy more epic 3D action thanks to new technology.
Inquisitr is reporting that Avatar 2 and all future sequels will employ a “RGB laser projection systems that will exclude the need for 3D glasses to watch a 3D film.” The system provides bright images at a high frame rate, allowing crisp visuals that eliminate the need for special glasses.
This technology is being developed by Christie Digital, which has teamed with James Cameron‘s Lightstorm Entertainment to create this new experience for fans. It’s a partnership that will pay off for years.
“In addition to the latest in projection technologies, Christie is fully committed to sharing our ongoing research and development efforts, including product roadmaps, with our co-visionary, Lightstorm, so that its productions will repeat the awe-inspiring success of Avatar in the years to come,” said president and CEO of Christie, Jack Kline.
Avatar 2 is said to have a war-themed plot with prisons and feature incredibly strained and twisted human and Na’vi relations. The return to Pandora will also explore the planet’s oceans, which will surely add plenty of opportunities for 3D set pieces.
The four Avatar sequels are planned for release in the Decembers of 2020, 2021, 2024, and 2025. Avatar 2‘s cast includes Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore, and newcomers Cliff Curtis and Oona Chaplin.
