Avatar's director James Cameron has big plans ahead for his record-breaking blockbuster. The movie hits shelves on DVD and Blu-ray April 22, it re-releases in theaters this August, and he's already planning not one - but two - spin-offs.

In the sequel, audiences will see a new area of Pandora. "Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment - a different setting within Pandora," James tells the Los Angeles Times. "And I'm going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won't be a rain forest."

In fact, the famed director planned Avatar to be a trilogy and he wants to continuously show audiences new lands. "We created a broad canvas for the environment of film. That's not just on Pandora, but throughout the Alpha Centauri AB system," he says. "And we expand out across that system [in subsequent films] and incorporate more into the story - not necessarily in the second film, but more toward a third film."
To lure fans back into theaters this summer, Avatar's filmmakers are adding six additional minutes to the movie.
