The film doesn’t have a title yet, but follows this concept:
“There are worlds beyond dreams, illusion and imagination, where human beings are capable of anything. Where love rules, and everything your heart yearns for is beautifully, incredibly real.”
In the meanwhile, here’s what director Cameron had to say about the whole thing:
“Shooting with the Cirque du Soleil team has been one of the most enjoyable experiences of my professional life.
For years I’ve been a fan, both of their celebration of human physical performance and for their wild imagination in the designs of characters, costumes, music and unparalleled theatrical staging.
The images we’ve been shooting are stunning, and I know Andrew Adamson will weave them into a transporting, dreamlike narrative which will mesmerize audiences of all ages, around the world.”
At this moment that’s basically all we know about this project but with every new detail about this, we’ll be back, so make sure you stay tuned!
