    Sigourney Weaver praises James Cameron's Avatar sequel scripts

    The former Dr Grace Augustine seems to be of the opinion that our long-delayed return to Pandora will be well worth the wait. Sigourney Weaver, who portrayed the human scientist in James Cameron’s 2009 ultra-blockbuster ‘Avatar’ ($2.88 billion worldwide in case you forgot), is set to return in at least some of the four sequels the ever-ambitious filmmaker has planned. Whilst little to no plot details have been revealed on the ‘Avatar’ sequels, it is rumoured the films will centre on Sam Worthington’s Jake and Zoe Saldana’s Neytiri raising their children on Pandora, whilst still in conflict with the humans.
