20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment announced the release dates for James Cameron’ Avatar sequels, starting from 2020 to 2025.
After numerous delays the release dates for all four Avatar sequels are as follows:
The official Facebook page made the announcement along with a photo of James Cameron and his team behind the Avatar sequels. “Great to be working with the best team in the business! Avatar takes flight as we begin concurrent production on four sequels,” reads the caption.
Previously in an interview with The Star talks about making all the sequels at the same time and more:
“What people have to understand is that this is a cadence of releases. So we’re not making Avatar 2. We’re making Avatar 2, 3, 4 and 5. It’s an epic undertaking.
It’s not unlike building the Three Gorges dam. (Laughs) So I know where I’m going to be for the next eight years of my life. It’s not an unreasonable time frame if you think about it.
It took us four-and-a-half years to make one movie and now we’re making four. We’re full tilt boogie right now. This is my day job and pretty soon we’ll be 24-7.
We’re pretty well designed on all our creatures and sets. It’s pretty exciting stuff. I wish I could share with the world.
But we have to preserve a certain amount of showmanship and we’re going to draw that curtain when the time is right.”
The film sees the return of Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver.
Avatar sequels will be directed by James Cameron and written with Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman, and Shane Salerno.
Production will be handled by Cameron and Jon Landau through Lightstorm Entertainment.
