The present health crisis has not only resulted in movies that were going to come out being postponed but films away into the upcoming needing to be pushed back too. For instance, before today, it had been declared that Avatar two, a blockbuster that has already been shifted across the calendar a lot, has been pushed back the following year from December 2021 into December 2022.
Currently, James Cameron, the director/architect of this Avatar franchise, has reacted to Avatar Two ‘s delay due to this COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this season, the spreading coronavirus required generation to be shut down in New Zealand, but in the previous month, filming started back up. But, Cameron has revealed that the stunt has prevented his team from recommencing the majority of the visual production work on phases in Los Angeles, which he described as being “as critical” to the Avatar movies as the live-action work.
James Cameron included in his announcement shared on the official Avatar Instagram webpage that he’s “thankful for his support” that he and his staff have been getting from Disney Studios, as well as grateful for the fans’ support after all these years. So while we have to wait for an extra year for Avatar 2, Cameron guarantees that the result “will provide.”
Prior to the COVID-19, everything was on track to bring you the first sequel in December of 2021. Unfortunately, due to the impact that the pandemic has had out our schedule it is no longer possible for us to make that date. There is no one more disappointed about this delay than me. But I am buoyed by the incredible performances of our cast and the extraordinary work that Weta Digital is doing bringing the world of Pandora and the characters of the film to life.
Of course, with Avatar 2 being pushed to December 16, 2022, that means the other three Avatar sequels have been delayed as well. As it stands today, Avatar 3 is currently scheduled for December 20, 2024, followed by Avatar 4 on December 18, 2026, and Avatar 5 on December 22, 2028. Assuming those dates adhere (and given this franchise’s track record and those crazy times we live in, that is far from guaranteed), that means at that time the Avatar film series concludes, it’ll have been almost 20 years since the first film came out and took the world by storm.
The statement of Avatar 2’s latest delay was accompanied by plenty of other Disney launch dates varies. This comprised Mulan, which had been scheduled for August 21, being eliminated from the calendar, as well as the subsequent three Star Wars movies all being pushed right back. Now the next Disney-affiliated film scheduled to come out in theatres this year is Marvel Studios’ Black Widow in November, although that might wind up moving also.
The same as in real life, over a few years, may have passed since the events of Avatar when Avatar 2 begins, with Sam Worthington’s Jake Sully and Zoe Saldana’s Neytiri currently having three children. The sequel will observe the family exploring other areas of Pandora as soon as an old danger resurfaces. Along with familiar faces like Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, CCH Pounder, and Giovanni Ribisi returning (though in Weaver’s situation, she’ll be playing another personality ), the new cast members include Kate Winslet, Edie Falco, Michelle Yeoh, and Vin Diesel.
