Avatar 2 (December 18, 2020)

Post by WyldeMan on 15/04/16, 11:49 pm

James Cameron announced yet another sequel in his planned follow-up to “Avatar.”

Appearing onstage at ComicCon 2016 at 20th Century Fox, the prolific franchise director was introduced by studio co-CEO’s Stacey Snider and Jim Gianopulos where he dropped a full release schedule for the new films.

“Avatar 2” hits Christmas 2018,  followed by “Avatar 3” at Christmas 2020, “Avatar 4”  for Christmas 2022 and “Avatar 5” dated for Christmas 2023.

Cameron has been developing his followup films to his monstrous 2009 hit — which remains the highest grossing movie of all time worldwide (though “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” did dethrone “Avatar” from its record-breaking top spot domestically).

With every shift in the plan over the past three years, the scope of the series has mushroomed, with plans of a World of Pandora theme park, a touring Avatar-themed Cirque du Soleil show, and graphic novels also in the works.

The release date for “Avatar 2” has been pushed back twice before Cameron shared his slate of projected debut dates on Thursday. And with the addition of “Avatar 5” the vision has expanded even more.

It’s not yet clear whether Cameron and his Lightstorm Entertainment producing partner Jon Landau still intend to shoot the sequels at the same time in New Zealand.

Leads Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana signed on for the trilogy in 2014, which is expected to pick up where the original left off. Cameron has indicated much of it may be set on a moon of the planet Pandora and underwater.

Really looking forward to these as I love movies that take place underwater and knowing Cameron it's going to be a beautiful world.

I really hate the idea of this. I hated Avatar and I don't understand why they would want more of that.

I remember reading there were some who went to see the movie 5+ times and there were even some who were depressed because they could not live on Pandora.

That just adds to the hatred I already have for it.

I used to work with a guy who openly bragged that he'd seen Avatar in theaters 27 times.............he used to get super pissed when I told him Pandora was not really in his mother's basement where he actually lived.

No, because when he wasn't in Pandora he was on LAN raiding parties in the World of Warcraft. He was one of those dirty metal heads who pounded energy drinks by the case, stank like he bathed annually and only ever wore one t-shirt Megadeth's Youthenasia the one with the babies hanging upside down on clotheslines. Also, he had an Umbrella Corp tattoo on his forearm right next to his Mario One Up tattoo and I can't forget the ponytail....he was profoundly unlikable and I had to work with him on a constant basis around the airplanes.

This is a longshot but is there any chance you have a photograph? You can blur out the face. I feel like I need to see this.

No I do not collect pictures of male co-workers from a decade ago, lol. He used to have a website though for his Gargoyle pottery (not making that up either) but it appears he's since moved on from that business. After he got fired from my work in the airplane industry I saw him months later working at a Footlocker and his ponytail was gone. I think he's probably killed himself by now.

‘Avatar’: The Next Four Installments Receive Release Dates - First in 2020
BREAKING: James Cameron is shooting the films concurrently and now the release dates have been pegged for the sequels the biggest box office hit of all time: Avatar, which took in $2.7B worldwide when it was released in 2009. 20th Century Fox’s plan has been to churn out sequel after sequel after Avatar 2 hits theaters every year and that’s what was announced on the Avatar Facebook page this AM as the Avatar team said production is underway. The first sequel will now be released on Dec. 18, 2020, followed by Dec. 17, 2021 and then three years later on Dec. 20, 2024 and then Dec. 19, 2025.

The first sequel was initially expected in December 2014, but it was bumped — again (to 2016) and then again. Then Cameron said last month that they wouldn’t meet the 2018 date. So three postponements later, we now have the official release dates (for now?). The last three films in the series were scheduled for 2020, 2022 and 2023 releases, so everything has been pushed back.

The films are underway from Lightstorm in New Zealand with Jon Landau and the cast of Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, and Stephen Lang all returning. The script was written by Cameron with Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver, and Shane Salerno.

Will it be worth the wait? The director told Empire magazine three years ago: “I can tell you one thing about them: They’re gonna be bitchin.’ You will sh*t yourself with your mouth wide open.”

Here’s the Facebook post from early this AM:

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!
