James Cameron’s Avatar was a global success when it premiered back in 2009. The film starred Sam Worthington and Zoë Saldana and won three Academy Awards while raking in a whopping two billion dollars.

Ever since the first movie there have been talks about a sequel, and we now have official word that both Zoë and Sam have signed on to reprise their roles in next three Avatar movies according to E!Online.

That’s right, three!

“Jake Sully is a rare combination of passion, strength, street smarts and soul, which requires a lot from an actor. Sam brought to the role a combination of sensitivity, vulnerability and strength,” Cameron said.

“Zoë captured every aspect of the character I envisioned, bringing to Neytiri a mix of delicacy, fierceness and incredible physicality. I am beyond pleased they’ll be returning with us to Pandora.”

Cameron plans to make the three films Peter Jackson style, back-to-back-to-back which will provide adventures on Pandora starting in 2016 with the second film and finishing off with the fourth in 2018.
