It seems like a long time since the amazing Avatar was released and raked in 2.7b dollars. If any other film had made that much money you can be sure that we probably be on a third sequel already, but director James Cameron has purposely kept the franchise close to his heart and only ready to release the follow up when he believes its worth it.
But once more Cameron has been speaking and it seems that the film is moving forward more quickly now.
“I’m in the process of doing another pass through all three scripts right now. Just refining. That’s in parallel with the design process. The design process is very mature at this point. We’ve been designing for about a year and a half. All the characters, settings and creatures are all pretty much set”
“Obviously, expectations are going to be very high on these films, especially on Avatar 2, to make sure it wasn’t just some big fluke the first time. So we’ve got to deliver. I’ve created a nice rod for my own back, so they say.”
Avatar 2 is expected to hit theaters in December 2017, followed by Avatar 3 in late 2018 and Avatar 4 in 2019.
