There has been several new updates to the sequels in February and March. Two new actors have been announced. Brenden Cowell as Mick Scoresby, a captain of a large-scale marine hunting vessel on Pandora, and Edie Falco as General Ardmore, the Commander in charge of the RDA’s interests. Also this past Thursday 3/28/19 Jon Landau announced the 2nd unit tank work was completed. It really feels like things are getting buttoned up on the Avatar motion/performance capture front. Live action is rumored to begin in May, so that is fast approaching.
I share this post from Jon Landau because in the comments I saw something very interesting to me, because it is something I have wondered about for a long time…
I noticed Jon only replied to this one comment out of 48. So it’s not like he was under any expectation to answer this, so I take this at face value. It’s very interesting that a composer hasn’t been chosen yet, but I am positive that Jon and Jim will find the best one for their vision. I am very sad James Horner passed away, his music was truly a masterpiece in the first film.
Disney has finally released the official soundtrack from Pandora. You can now listen to some of the beautiful music featured at the park.
