The first Avatar is the highest grossing film of all times, with an income of $600 million (even more than the director’s other masterpiece Titanic.
ALL THE RELEASE DATES
Some people believe that the big gap between the first and the second movies could heavily damage the sequel, but that’s not what the movie-director thinks. He has finally (SUPER-FINALLY! I’ve been waiting for this since 2012… well, of course, in case the world wouldn’t have ended first) revealed the release date: 18 December 2020.
In honor of the new Pandora park in Disney World, he has talked with CNN, revealing also that he’s taken very seriously THE SEQUELS. That’s not a typing mistake, there won’t be just a sequel, there’ll be four.
CNN asked him whether he was worried or not about the gap between the last Avatar and further Avatar-related releases. Cameron’s reply?
It was a seven-year gap between The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a seven-year gap between Alien and Aliens,” the famed director said before reaffirming how the prospect of another four Avatar films is unlike anything anyone has done before.
And then he added
It’s going to be obviously more like a ten-year gap between Avatar and Avatar 2. But Avatar 2 you are going to with not the promise, but the certainty of three more films beyond that, and that’s a very different concept with the audience. And a lot of the delay has been around creating
The release dates of all the other sequels? Revealed by 20th Century Fox.
- Avatar 2: 18 December 2020
- Avatar 3: 17 December 2021
- Avatar 4: 20 December 2024
- Avatar 5: 19 December 2025
Talking about these projects, Cameron 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.
CAST & REVOLUTIONARY 3D
The confirmed members from the old cast are
- Sam Worthington
- Zoe Saldana
- Sigourney Weaver
- Stephen Lang
These latter’s characters both died in the movie, so how could they possibly return? James Cameron said regarding Sigourney Weaver, that she’ll return indeed, but as a whole new character.
Another great thing you should know, is that James Cameron will work also on a new kind of 3D that won’t require the use of any kind of glasses. This new 3D will be used for the last movie of the saga. Now that’s what I call revolutionary. Of course we’ve already seen one kind of 3D that did technically work without glasses. I’m talking about the Nintendo 3DS, but if you’ve ever used it, you probably know that its more a sort of low-quality 3D’s surrogate. It tires eyes in an incredible way, it slowly ruins them and rather than seeing things coming out of the screen all you could see was just more deepness, as if they were indeed three dimensional but where on the other side of a closed window. Obviously Cameron’s movie will have an uncomparably better technology, but how will it work? We don’t know much yet, but hearing, or to better say, reading about a kind of 3D that doesn’t require glasses, makes me think about holograms. Maybe by the time there’ll be a new kind of projectors?
Afterall, just look at what any of us can project with a smartphone (scroll down for more news about Avatar‘s sequel:
And here’s what “augmented reality” can do:
Set some years after the first Avatar, Sully is now the chieftain and his beloved Neytiri has becomed the high priestess of their clan. But the events this time will focus more on their children than on them. Another news is that they’ll be travelling beyond Pandora’s forests, to underwater and volcanic enviroments, you know… as if the flying mountains weren’t enough? Cameron says it’ll make
you s**t yourself with your mouth wide open
although I really wanna see the movie, I’d rather not know what he meant with this statement (maybe he likes The Human Centipede or Two Girls And One Cup… and if you don’t know what they’re, consider yourself lucky. If you value your eyes, your mind and/or your stomach, don’t watch them. NEVER EVER).
However, if you really want to know more about Avatar 2, DON’T TRUST THE TRAILERS. All the trailers that you can find online, even the ones made with great maestry, are fanmade. The real trailers haven’t been released yet.
That’s all we know so far. Let’s wait and hope for the sequels to be masterpieces as great as the first (even better if they’ll be better than the first).
IN THE MEANWHILE…
If you want to refresh you memory, you can buy the first Avatar movie on Amazon:
