‘Avatar 2’ was originally set to arrive in cinemas in December 2014. It’s March 2017 now, and director James Cameron has revealed the film has been delayed yet again, and will no longer meet its planned 2018 release date. Cameron took his time with ‘Avatar’, which was released twelve years after his previous feature film ‘Titanic’, and given they’re the two highest-grossing films of all time it makes sense that he’d be given time to develop a sequel. Not just one sequel either, four, in what is sure to be one of the most expensive film productions in history if the films are indeed set to release in quick succession and be shot back-to-back.
James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ sequel feels like it’s been a lifetime in the making, with the follow-up to the 2009 sci-fi adventure still on its way. What’s more, Cameron has confirmed a third, fourth, and fifth instalment will be made, each released in 2020, 2022, 2023. In the Toronto Star, director James Cameron revealed that ‘Avatar 2’ is now delayed yet again, but despite its unconfirmed arrival he did say the remaining four sequels are all one giant entity in terms of getting them made.
With four more blockbuster ‘Avatar’ movies in the pipeline, James Cameron’s space saga has a huge story still to tell. The director was conducting an interview with Whoopi Goldberg on ‘The View’ at the new Avatar attraction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando when he dropped the bombshell. Cameron explains that the theme park experience is set in a time after the movies wind up.
The former Dr Grace Augustine seems to be of the opinion that our long-delayed return to Pandora will be well worth the wait. Sigourney Weaver, who portrayed the human scientist in James Cameron’s 2009 ultra-blockbuster ‘Avatar’ ($2.88 billion worldwide in case you forgot), is set to return in at least some of the four sequels the ever-ambitious filmmaker has planned. Whilst little to no plot details have been revealed on the ‘Avatar’ sequels, it is rumoured the films will centre on Sam Worthington’s Jake and Zoe Saldana’s Neytiri raising their children on Pandora, whilst still in conflict with the humans.
Disney World Florida is getting a brand new attraction in 2017 – and it already looks amazing. Pandora, The World of Avatar, based on the James Cameron mega-hit Avatar, will open at the park next year and guests can expect to be transported to another world.
James Cameron’s ‘Avatar 2’ may finally have a release date. The long-awaited ‘Avatar’ sequel seems to have finally landed an official release date, as 20th Century Fox reveals a handful of dates in its upcoming calendar. According to Exhibitor Relations, the studio confirmed a number of upcoming films, including two new Marvel movies and a date for Kingsman: ‘The Golden Circle’.
The brain trust behind Avatar is about to launch an immersive, interactive experience that aims to take fans inside James Cameron’s extraterrestrial world. Titled Avatar: Discover Pandora (and not to be confused with Walt Disney World’s planned Pandora-themed land or Cirque du Soleil’s Avatar-based traveling show Toruk), the 12,000-square-foot exhibition comes stocked with life-sized creatures (including the soaring Banshees and vicious Viperwolf) and is set to open Dec. 7 in Taipei before embarking on a world tour.
Four different directors, almost 10 years in the making and costing an alleged £100million, yet ‘Empires of the Deep’, China’s planned answer to ‘Avatar’, remains unreleased. “I think I’m the only one who’s seen it other than the creators,” says actor Steve Polites, who signed a three month contract in 2009 to play the hero of ‘Empires of the Deep’ (and weirdly two other characters), only to find himself still stuck in China nine months later. “[Jon has] a really good heart and the core of a great idea, but couldn’t let go of it,” says Mark Byers, a Hollywood veteran who came on in late 2007 as a producer to try and help.
James Cameron, who is currently deep into his ‘Avatar’ sequels, took some time out to give his two cents on 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens’. - Why is Keanu Reeves at Parliament? In an interview that has surfaced on YouTube, he first couches his comments by explaining that 'Star Wars’ originator George Lucas is 'a friend of mine’, before revealing his ambivalence towards the new movie.
James Cameron’s 2009 sci-fi spectacular ‘Avatar’ was the first movie to ever crack the $2bn dollar mark at the global box office, so it’s crazy to think that 20th Century Fox nearly passed on the project for being too risky. Cameron is a master filmmaker and should never be underestimated, even when it comes to cramming his films full of in-jokes and gags that you probably missed the first time around. In case you didn’t spot the anti-imperialism message of ‘Avatar’ that draws parallels between the colonisation of North America and the invasion of Pandora, Cameron sneakily flashed up a huge American flag behind Colonel Quaritch when he’s giving his welcome speech to the raw recruits.
