The release date of Avatar 2 is still shrouded in mystery. James Cameron is continuing to focus on delivering the right aesthetic for the movie, even it means delaying the release date.
The director made a candid confession that Avatar was supposed to be a trilogy but he overwrote. Blessed be the over writers, cause the world will get to see Avatar 2, Avatar 3, 4 and 5. It was believed that the sequel to the movie will be released in 2018 but the director confirmed that the release date is pushed.
Avatar 2: So Many Release Dates Already Announced
Initially, Avatar 2 held a release date of December 2016 but then it moved to the present year. If Avatar had to release in December 2017, it would be pitted against Star Wars: Episode VIII. However, the confrontation was avoided when Cameron himself chose to push the release date to 2018.
In a recent interview with The Toronto Star, the director revealed that 2018 for the second sequel is not happening. However, his excitement about the sequels was palpable in the interview. Sample this: “We’re loving being able to immerse in this world in so much more detail than people can imagine. When you imagine what Avatar movies will be like from where we were. You won’t be able to imagine where we’re taking this.”
Cameron: “Won’t Be Able To Imagine Where We Are Taking This”
James Cameron is ready to devote the next eight years of his life towards the Avatar projects. He says that his crew is ‘full tilt boogie right now’. The director took four and a half years to make the first in the series possible. The Titanic director says that Avatar 2 and the rest in the series will become his full-time job.
“What people have to understand is that this is a cadence of releases. So we’re not making Avatar 2. We’re making Avatar 2, 3, 4 and 5. It’s an epic undertaking. It’s not unlike building the Three Gorges dam” says James Cameron. Reports suggest that pre-production is already coming to an end. The director himself says that the sets and the creatures are all set.
Cameron believes in holding his peace and not divulging more about the project even though he wishes to. In true director style, he says, “We have to preserve a certain amount of showmanship and we’re going to draw that curtain when the time is right”. The world awaits for the curtain to be drawn!
