I would love to see a sequel, it would have to be great though! It would have to feel more like the second movie in a series and less like a "sequel" or "prequel" if you get the subtle difference I'm talking about. It would need to have a different title, like many book series have. I would be disappointed if it was a relationship like Lion King to Lion King 2. It would have to be a relationship like the LOTR, Narnia, Eragon and similar book series have: same critical characters and setting, and the development of a grander plot. So I guess what I'm saying is that I don't want to see a sequel, but a 3 or 4 movie series! Something that will impress more than just a close following; something that will still have a broad appeal. I think the movie has that great potential, because it has already created a very convincing world and characters. Jake and Neytiri would have to be back. Neytiri is absolutely my favorite character. And it is actually Jake and Neytir's unique relationship that is my favorite aspect of the movie. It would be sad to have a prequel, which I would imagine precluding that aspect. It would be nice to have a 3 movie series that develops that relationship and brings along new challenges that make sense in the scope of a broader three movie narrative. And whatever you do, don't call it Avatar 2! Having 3 consecutive and critically integrated stories with three different names would be more attractive to more people So yes, series!
