Eight years after its record-breaking premiere, James Cameron’s Avatar, the highest-grossing film of all time is finally getting its much awaited sequels officially!
Announcement came from its Facebook page where it posted the commencement of not just one but four sequels of Avatar. Check out the post here:
Great to be working with the best team in the business! Avatar takes flight as we begin concurrent production on four sequels. The journey continues December 18, 2020, December 17, 2021, December 20, 2024 and December 19, 2025!
These are the release dates in the US, no official release dates for international release as of now. Sigourney Weaver is set to return with Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana also expected to reprise their roles.
“Avatar 2” was initially slated for release in December 2016, with its follow-up to arrive in December 2018, but that was before Cameron’s franchise plans changed, and he ultimately settled on four more films. Along the way, the intended premiere of “Avatar 2” slipped first to 2017, then 2018 and now 2020.
