Given that Avatar is one of the biggest blockbusters till date, it wasn’t surprising when the news of a sequel broke. However, the shooting is delayed for quite a while now and looks like finally the movie will being shooting later this year according to a new listing on My Entertainment World.
Last year, director James Cameron revealed that a much larger storyline is the reason behind the delay and there will be more than one sequel in the coming years. Interestingly, all of the sequel will start shooting at the same time. However, he recently revealed that the scripts are complete and they will start shooting in August. Last month, during an interview with the Daily Beast, he said,
“The thing is, my focus isn’t on Avatar 2. My focus is on Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5 equally. That’s exactly how I’m approaching it. They’ve all been developed equally. I’ve just finished the script to Avatar 5. I’m now starting the process of active prep. I’ll be working with the actors in the capture volume in August, so I’m booked in production every day between now and then. Our volume is up and running, and everything is designed, and so we’re going full-guns right now. I feel like I’ve been let out of jail, because I’ve been in the writing cave for the last two years. I’m actually enjoying life. I don’t enjoy writing. I wouldn’t wish writing on a dog.”
Although there hasn’t been significant details regarding the plot, all of the stars from the original movie will be coming back for the sequels. Although Avatar 2 is set to hit theater in December 2018, don’t be surprised if there is a delay given that the production of movie will take longer than usual. Other Avatar sequels are scheduled for release on 2020, 2022 and 2023.
