It’s been a decade since Avatar broke the all-time record at the box office but sadly lost its throne to Avengers: Endgame.
James Cameron is not worried about keeping titles to his name. He knows what his next project would consist of.
“Avengers: Endgame is demonstrable proof that people will definitely go to movie theatres,” he said in a recent interview.
“THE THING THAT SCARED ME MOST ABOUT MAKING AVATAR 2 AND AVATAR 3 WAS THAT THE MARKET MIGHT HAVE SHIFTED SO MUCH THAT IT SIMPLY WAS NO LONGER POSSIBLE TO GET PEOPLE THAT EXCITED ABOUT GOING AND SITTING IN A DARK ROOM WITH A BUNCH OF STRANGERS TO WATCH SOMETHING.”
Avatar 2 Release Date:
Avatar 2 was going to be released on December 17, 2021, having been pushed back to December 2020.
As the creators have mentioned before, a new Avatar movie will come up every other year until Avatar 5 on December 17, 2027.
And now with the pandemic, there might be a slight delay in the release date.
Through all the delays, James Cameron has been wholly chilled out about all of this.
“IT WAS A SEVEN-YEAR GAP BETWEEN THE TERMINATOR AND TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY, A SEVEN-YEAR GAP BETWEEN ALIEN AND ALIENS,” HE SAID.
Avatar 2 Cast:
The core cast of the original Avatar is contracted for the upcoming movies:
Zoe Saldana, who will play the role of the Na’vi princesses Neytiri.
She has just appeared in the Star Trek reboot in the 2009 original movie and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Since then she has become one of the most significant new stars to come out of Avatar.
“STEVEN WAS SO MEMORABLE IN THE FIRST FILM, WE’RE PRIVILEGED TO HAVE HIM BACK. I’M NOT GOING TO SAY EXACTLY HOW WE’RE BRINGING HIM BACK, BUT IT’S A SCIENCE FICTION STORY, AFTER ALL. HIS CHARACTER WILL EVOLVE INTO REALLY UNEXPECTED PLACES ACROSS THE ARC OF OUR NEW THREE-FILM SAGA. I REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH SUCH A GIFTED ACTOR, WHO’S ALSO BECOME A GOOD FRIEND.”
