Cameron to Pen Avatar Novel

James Cameron confirmed Tuesday night that he will write an Avatar prequel that will “provide details about the characters and the world of Pandora.” At a dinner held in his honor in New York, he said he first came up with the idea to write the book when he was filming the movie, which has become the world’s largest-grossing film.

“I told myself, if it made money, I’d write a book,” he said, “There are things you can do in books that you can’t do with films."


No word yet on whether the book will be available in a Na'vi translation.
