While James Cameron and the VFX wizards at Weta Digital in Wellywood are trying to finish the last big effects sequences in Avatar--which is set for December 18 release--Cameron is also working on many of the ancillary marketing and licensing sidelines that will help sell this pricey 3-D movie. (The official sticker price is $237 million, but we can safely assume that that figure is 1) low and 2) counting.)

In the works is a 2-D novel, videogame, and action figures and collectibles, among other things.

And here's some yummy concept art of planet Pandora, which takes five years for Jake Sully (Sam Worthington, pictured in avatar form with Na'vi tribal princess Neytiri, acted by Zoe Saldana) to travel to in a galaxy far far away.

    I love the phrase '2-D novel' but will slit my wrists if it's an actual piece of jargon.
