We’ve been waiting upon these Avatar sequels for a while now. James Cameron’s original sci-fi blockbuster was a big deal, the biggest deal in fact, and now the legendary director has announced that he’s finished writing the scripts… all four of them.
It sounds like a lot to take on board; it’s pretty bullish to assume the world is ready for 4 additional films in the Avatar franchise but Cameron sure is going for it, never a man not to bet on himself. Speaking to the Daily Beast, Cameron said the below on the subject:
“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”.
Hopefully the world is indeed ready because these films are coming either way. Avatar 2 is currently scheduled for release on December 21st 2018.
