After becoming the highest-grossing movie of all time in 2009, fans are waiting for a sequel. James Cameron’s mind-blowing 3D photography, astonishing performance capture, and CG backgrounds have made this one of the best movies of all time.
The fans are awaiting a sequel, but they are going to be even more excited to know that there won’t be one but four sequels. Avatar 2 was initially slated for 2014. The yet-untitled follow is the first of the four sequels on the way.
After 12 years of the first film, Avatar 2 is set to make its debut on December 17, 2021, unless the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic pushes the date ahead. Avatar 3, Avatar 4, and Avatar 5 are also simultaneously written and are currently slated for December 2023, December 2025, and December 2027.
All we know that the timeline will be picking up around a decade after the first film and that Jake Sully and Neytiri will now have children. It is also confirmed that much of the movie will take place around Pandora’s oceans, with the newly introduced sea-faring Metkayina clan playing a pivotal role.
All the Avatar sequels are stand-alone films. The producers say that rather than rushing in doing the sequels, we have to build our foundation, and that’s the scripts.
Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana will return to play the leads Jake and Neytiri along with Giovanni Ribisi (RDA chief Parker Selfridge), Joel David Moore (Norm Spellman) and CCH Pounder (Neytiri’s mother Mo’ at) will reprise their roles. Also, Sigourney Weaver and Stephan Lang are reprising their positions even though their characters died in the first movie.
Where Can I Watch It?
Avatar 2 will release theoretically on December 17, 2021, and it is not confirmed on which platform will stream it too, although it might come on Disney Hotstar.
Till then, stay safe and stay tuned for further updates on Avatar 2!
