It’s safe to say that Titanic is one of those epic films that never gets old. Despite turning 20 years old in 2017, Titanic (and baby-faced Leonardo DiCaprio) has an irreplaceable spot in our hearts. Now, there will be an opportunity for the movie to win over both old and new fans with a new National Geographic documentary celebrating the film’s milestone anniversary, HelloGiggles reports.
Writer and director James Cameron will appear on the hour-long Titanic: 20th Anniversary to discuss how he maintained historical accuracy throughout filmmaking. In a statement, Cameron explained, “When I wrote the film, and when I set out to direct it, I wanted every detail to be as accurate as I could make it, and every harrowing moment of the ship’s final hours accounted for. I was creating a living history; I had to get it right out of respect for the many who died and for their legacy. But did I really get it right? Now, with National Geographic and with the latest research, science and technology, I’m going to reassess.”
Given Cameron’s major level of dedication (I mean, those Avatar sequels are *still* being made), it’s not surprising that he wants to know just how accurate his work was. According to Entertainment Weekly, the documentary will show Cameron and some experts visiting a Titanic exhibit at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. After hearing about Leo and Kate Winslet’s latest charity venture, I’ll also have my fingers crossed for an appearance from the classic onscreen duo.
Titanic: 20th Anniversary will air on National Geographic in December.
