If James Cameron has his way, the cast of the “Avatar” sequels will see first-hand the beauty behind the inspiration for the alien world of Pandora.

Speaking at a sustainability forum in Brazil last week (A ha! Now we know why him and Schwarzenegger were there!), the director said that he wanted to bring his future cast to South America to learn about “the natives and what real life in the jungle is like”.

“Avatar is a film about the rainforest and its indigenous people,” he added. “Before I start to shoot the two films I want to bring my actors here, so I can better tell this story.”

After shooting the blockbuster film, Cameron traveled to Brazil and visited with the indigenous tribes settled on the Xingu River and threatened by the Belo Monte dam project. Together with other celebrities (like Sigourney Weaver), he became a fierce advocate for the protection of the rainforest and its people – and so far, has been successful in delaying the dam’s construction. He added at the forum that if he had met the tribes before “Avatar”, he “would certainly have made a better film.”

“Avatar” 3 and 4 are expected to be released in December 2014 and 2015.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
