Recently confirmed to be taking not two but three trips back to Pandora, Zoe Saldana says that the stories for the upcoming Avatar sequels made her and series creator James Cameron very emotional, though she's looking forward to the return.

"I went down to the studio that they've been setting up for the past three years. It was wonderful," Saldana told MTV. "Jim took us and gave us a tour of all the reference pictures, telling us the stories. I haven't been able to read the scripts. They're still working on them. We kind of get choked up. [Cameron] gets emotional telling us about the story. I get emotional hearing about it, so I'm looking forward to it."

Saldana also mentioned that she wasn't surprised about her character Neytiri returning for the film's sequels saying she's known for some time.

"I knew. I knew for a while. Then it was confirmed last fall when they approached us, already telling us these are the dates, lock yourself, we would like you to start getting ready around this time."

Saldana will be joined by Sam Worthington and Stephen Lang​ in the sequels. With all three Avatar sequels shooting back-to-back, director James Cameron has hired several writers to work on the individual screenplays including Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planets of the Apes) and Shane Salerno (Savages, Salinger)​. The release of the first follow-up will be in December 2016, with the second to follow in December 2017, and the third a year later.

Cameron and Jon Landau will produce Avatar 2, 3, and 4 through Lightstorm Entertainment for Twentieth Century Fox.
