American actor Stephen Lang is excited about the sequels to Avatar. He says the upcoming parts of the James Cameron film are "beautifully written" and will expand the universe of Pandora. "The sequels are extraordinary. I cannot share a lot, but I can tell you that there are four of them and I have read them all. They are very exciting and very emotional. The world that was presented in Avatar is expanded upon," says the actor.

Lang was seen as Colonel Miles Quaritch, the antagonist in the 2009 film which told the story of the conflict between humans and the blue-skinned alien race Na'vi of the alien world of Pandora. The second part is scheduled to release in 2020, and will be followed by the other three in 2021, 2024 and 2025, respectively. The actor, who was praised for playing the role of a blind man in Don't Breathe, which will find its way onto the Indian small screen on June 14, adds that the sequels will give a "much larger and extensive look" at the world of Pandora. 

"The stakes are very high. I can't say more because I'd get into trouble if I did. But, I will say that it is a really beautifully written and a very emotional saga. It needs four films to really deeply develop the story and theme." 

Sony Pictures Entertainment's Don't Breathe, directed by Fede Álvarez, focuses on three friends who get trapped inside a blind man's house while breaking into it. Lang says he enjoyed shooting for the 2016 film in a "peculiar way because it was a difficult environment to be in. There were so many challenges in making the film and playing that part, and creating that insulated world. But the team always knew what they wanted to achieve."
