Book adaptation of the movie

<< < (2/10) > >>

Eyamsiyu:
I don't think it's a bad idea to make a book out of it.  It IS a bad idea to be working on it while making the other movies, though.

Sngä'i Tìrey-yä:
As long as he pumps the script out and finishes the filming, I wouldn't mind if he worked on writing the book while the movie went through the special effects process.

Tsu'roen:
James Cameron said in an interview that he will write the book himself as soon as the dust of the release settles.
At this point he is probably already on it or has even already finished it. But from there it still may take a few month to get it on the book shelves. Proofreading, editing, layout, print ... all those things take some time.

He said it would go more in deep and also explain why the Na'vi are so similar to humans.
I'm really hoping for this book as it is an opportunity to learn more about the wider background story and all the dropped side action of the movie. Maybe also more about more the history of the Na'vi.

A book that just retells the movie would indeed be kind of little value (though it would hopefully have all the Na'vi sentences and in correct transcription)

Very true.

Here's what I want to know: the movies from here on out have to be modified to fit the script of the final release.  However, if he writes the book based on the 2007 script, which had a lot more detail in general, would he make the other books (for 2 and 3) just as detailed to fit the plot of the first?

I hope he will do it.
