Soon after director James Cameron at CinemaCon 2016 announced four new Avatar films to be released by 2023, we get to ask ourselves on the viability of Avatar as a series. Maybe yes, because the director and his team of writers have been working on it for long delaying the sequel.
As per Cameron, each Avatar film will stand alone with complete stories. Looking at that it seems the director has at least outlined the storyline in terms of his different ideas. If so we can still see Avatar as a good franchise. As per the latest media reports, the film saga which started in 2009 will see the second one releasing in 2021.
For the past several years, Cameron was busy coming up with ideas for a trilogy and then disclosed that at least another three are in the possibility. Now, he revealed that another four in line, of course, because of the evolving plot lines. Cameron said that the story that he and his team were developing kept growing bigger and bigger … and the whole imagination is far beyond the first film.
The 2009-film became the highest-grossing film with earnings of $2.8 billion worldwide. So, the studio or production house would certainly explore it further by backing up Cameron’s projects.
When will Avatar 2 release?
Earlier it was reported that multiple Avatar films are all at work and at least two will be released by December 2023.
However, considering the burdon the industry is now facing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we might see some changes in the schedule. Meanwhile, we can just hope to see the original schedules for Avatar 2 like December 17, 2021; Avatar 3 as of December 22, 2023; while there is a tentative timeline for another two as December 2025 and December 2027.
Moreover, films like Avatar are supposed to be watched in cinemas for the theatrical experience. For now, movies are being rescheduled, but it is good to know that the shooting for the second and third Avatar film is in progress.
What will Avatar 2 be about?
