James Cameron Says ‘Avatar’ Will Have a 3-D Blu-Ray Release This Year
by Christopher John Farley

In a wide-ranging interview today, director James Cameron said that his blockbuster movie “Avatar” will have a 3-D Blu-ray release later this year.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker, who is nominated for best director at the coming Oscars, said that with a wave of companies set to release 3-D compatible TVs, the time was right to issue his film in 3-D for the home viewer.

“It’s all right on schedule,” said Cameron. “We’ll do the Blu-ray and the standard def DVD April 22nd, that’s our plan as of right now, and that’ll be pretty much bare bones. And then we’ll do a value-added DVD and a 3-D Blu-ray in I think November sometime.”

Fox Home Entertainment couldn’t confirm the release dates.

Cameron said he hopes to do a sequel to “Avatar” but he wants to do it “cheaper and faster.” He said the sequel will be “a continuation of the same characters. We’re going to widen the universe in quotes, meaning the envelope of the setting of the story.”
