Twentieth Century Fox has announced officially that James Cameron’s next two films will be Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, targeted for release in 2014 and 2015.

The announcement quotes a couple of Fox executives:

“AVATAR is not only the highest grossing movie of all time, it is a created universe based on the singular imagination and daring of James Cameron, who also raised the consciousness of people worldwide to some of the greatest issues facing our planet,” said Rothman and Gianopulos.

Um, yeah. I know a lot of people have been concerned about the wholesale destruction of intelligent, networked forests in order to mine unobtanium. It’s a story straight from today’s headlines, isn’t it?
