Move over, Na’vi: You’re no longer the strangest people associated with James Cameron.
He and Andrew Adamson (Shrek, Narnia) have collaborated — i.e., the former is producing and the latter is directing — on Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away, a 3D mixture of narrative and documentary centering on the world’s most famous acrobatics group.

Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away will open on December 21st.
