Before we get any sequels, James Cameron will work with Cirque du Soleil to create an Avatar-based performance. The touring show will start in late 2015, while Avatar 2 will come nearly a year later, in December of 2016.
It'll be the first time that Cirque du Soleil will have a single movie-based show, although their "Iris" show was based on the history of film. Cameron has a relationship with the troupe already, having occasionally acted a camera operated for them and producing a 3-D performance film on the group in 2011. [Los Angeles Times]
