Avatar's world is finally expanding. Not only The Way of the Water is now available in theaters, but Frontiers of Pandora, the developing game by Ubisoft Massive, will be Canon in the universe of James Cameron. In a recent interview with Polygon, Jon Landau, producer of The Way of the Water, has confirmed that Frontiers of Pandora will be Canon in the world of Avatar. However, it will not be carried out at the same time of the films that are on planning. This was what was said about it:
We do not want the stories to get together. It is here where we differentiate [from other multimedia franchises]. We want the stories to be unique in each of those spaces.
We have no creative content coming out in visual media as fast as other IPS do. It's not like we do a streaming series, and another streaming series, and a sequel one year later, and all those things. We are not like that. We don't want that to avatar. What we want to do is find the best in brand partners, and expand the universe, challenging them to do what they do best. We are doing that now with Massive and Ubisoft. Regarding its position within this universe, Landau has pointed out that Frontiers of Pandora will give us the opportunity to visit an area never seen before this planet, in a series of events that are held in a period around the beginning of The Way of the water.
This was what was mentioned:
What we want to do in those spaces is to make them a canon in our world. Thus, they cannot do something to conflict with our stories.
Frontiers of Pandora takes place on the west border of Pandora. That is not a place we have gone before. It is established in the period of time after the beginning of the sense of water, but before the time cut of a year of the film.
Frontiers of Pandora is consistent with the film, in that he talks about characters that return with the RDA [the side of the military in the prequel]. They talk about General Adore in the game, but they return to the Bridgehead base, not to the border. It's like what we did with The World of Avatar [Disney theme park], which takes place in the Mara Valley. It is not a place that we have seen in the movies-deals with the Omaticaya [Clan de Navi, the creatures of the franchise], in a river that we have never seen in the movies. And two generations are established after the events of the first film, so we see Samson shattered and other guns shattered in the forest. We see that the forest recovers that. But these [spin-offs of the franchise] do not tell our history. In this way, it is clear that all fans from the world of James Cameron can enjoy Frontiers of Pandora to have a new gland of this world. While the story will be Canon, it seems that it will not have a real impact on the conflict starring Jake Sully. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will arrive at new generation and PC consoles in the future.
In related issues, a shooting was reported at the premiere of The Way of the Water. Similarly, James Cameron says that its special effects are better than Marvel.
