When will Avatar 2 be released? And now we’re wondering when the other three will be released. With its outstanding performance capture, CG scenery, and 3D imaging, the original took us to exotic climes – quite a blessing at the moment, come to think of it. Until Avengers: Endgame wrecked the Na’vi party, the 2009 blockbuster became the highest-grossing film of all time.
Despite the fact that it’s been over a decade, this popularity inevitably begets sequels, and we’re getting a lot of them. The still-untitled Avatar 2 is the first of four planned sequels. It was originally scheduled for release in 2014. We haven’t heard much recently, but Cameron recently confirmed that the first sequel is finished, and that the third is also well along – we even recently received a new set shot showcasing a massive yacht called The Matador, more on that below.
While we know we’re returning to Pandora, because to cutting-edge motion capture technology, we also know we’ll be travelling underwater. But there’s still a lot we don’t know about Avatar 2’s release date, title, plot, cast, and more: here’s all we know so far about the film’s release date, title, plot, cast, and more.
Release date for Avatar 2 (as well as Avatar 3, 4, and 5)
Avatar 2 is now complete, while Avatar 3 is “kind of” 95 percent complete (via Deadline). “We’re 100 percent complete on Avatar 2 and sort of 95 percent complete on Avatar 3,” Cameron stated in a video conference from New Zealand in September 2020, adding that his team is presently working on outstanding live-action work.
- Avatar 2: December 17, 2021 to December 16, 2022
- Avatar 3: December 22, 2023 to December 20, 2024
- Avatar 4: December 19, 2025 to December 18, 2026
- Avatar 5: December 27, 2027 to December 22, 2028
Aside from Avatar 2, there’s nothing official. According to a 2018 BBC story, the four additional films’ titles could be Avatar: The Way of Water, Avatar: The Seed Bearer, Avatar: The Tulkun Rider, and Avatar: The Quest for Eywa (Eywa being the name of the Pandoran deity revered by the Na’vi).
Unfortunately, if they sound a little uninspired, the bad news is that they could be true. Cameron told ET, “Those titles are among the titles that are being considered.” “At this time, no final decisions have been taken.”
He may also keep things simple by sticking to the Alien franchise, which includes Avatars, Avatar 3, Avatar Resurrection, and Avatar Vs Predator. Or perhaps not.
Avatar 2 has officially confirmed its title, while Disney has announced when fans will be able to see its first trailer.
The House of Mouse revealed that the first sequel’s title is indeed Avatar: The Way of Water.
The news was confirmed at CinemaCon, where the first footage of the sequel was shown – in 3D, of course – to those in attendance. The footage showed Jake Sully and Neytiri (Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldaña, respectively) riding the flying creatures from the first film, and swimming underwater with new whale-like beasties.
The film is planned to be released in a multitude of audiovisual formats, including 2D, 3D, IMAX, high-frame rate versions and more. James Cameron has been filming it and the other three Avatar sequels (Avatar: The Seed Bearer, Avatar: The Tulkun Rider and Avatar: The Quest for Eywa) back-to-back-to-back-to-back.
