Avatar Sequel being prepped?

It's not out yet but there's talk already of exploring the world of Avatar more.
I'm a big fan of science fiction movies, and seeing that there's no new Star Wars looming in the big screen anytime soon, I am looking forward in watching this opus of James Cameron. This guy has on more than one occasion delivered the goods. So, I'm hoping this new film he has will not be a disappointment. And if they are already talking about sequels, that is mighty fine with me.

MTV's article reads:

It's a given that if James Cameron's "Avatar" is as big as expected then 20th Century Fox will want a sequel. Even though we won't know for a few more months if the highly anticipated 3-D sci-fi blockbuster is the hoped-for success, producer Jon Landau is already talking about the possibility of a follow-up.

Landau, who also worked with Cameron on "Titanic," told French magazine Le Film (brought to our attention and initially translated by /Film) that the world of "Avatar" is big enough that it should be explored further in subsequent films. He says "Avatar" only deals with the surface of the planet Pandora, and that a sequel could venture deeper into the interior.

After ten years developing "Avatar," Cameron should want to spend more time on Pandora too. He very likely knows the planet well beyond what we'll see of it in the first film. He could even do something that's less of a continuation and more of a separate, standalone tale involving another alien race that hopefully doesn't resemble the mutant offspring of a Smurf and a Thundercat.

There's also the little matter of Cameron being very good at sequels, having given us two of the best second installments ever made ("Aliens" and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day"). Three, if you want to argue the case for "Piranha II: The Spawning" (please, indulge us). Meanwhile, he's long teased us with the idea of doing another "True Lies" movie, and some fans of have ridiculously wished for a sequel to "Titanic" (Leo miraculously survived!).

So, come showing day I'll be in the theaters wearing those funky 3d glasses, then decide if the movie does deserve a sequel.
