James Cameron Announces Four AVATAR Sequels and Reveals Logo
During 20th Century Fox's CinemaCon presentation, James Cameron offered an update on his Avatar franchise, and announced that he is now going to make four Avatar sequels! The last we heard there was only three, I imagine next year he'll announce four more. I'm convinced that Cameron will be making these Avatar films throughout the rest of his career.
Cameron revealed that the sequels are being created as films that will stand on their own so they will tell individual stories that, together, will “form a complete saga”.
The first of the Avatar sequels is set to start shooting in New Zealand this month, and it's slated to arrive in theaters on December of 2018. The following films will be released 2020, 2022, and 2023. I'm really excited and curious to see what Cameron does with these films. Maybe we'll see some of the concept art shown during the presentation pop up online sometime soon. If so, we'll make sure to post it for you.
Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, and Sigourney Weaver are confirmed to reprise their roles. The films are being written by Cameron along with Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman, and Shane Salerno.
