According to Fox, the initial Avatar sequel will debut on December 18, 2020. The next year brings the release of Avatar 3, and the final two films are scheduled for release in December 2024 and 2025, respectively. Again, Pandora, in case you’ve forgotten since last time, the Avatar Sequels aren’t only about the final destination. James Cameron’s journey is told in Avatar.
Although production on the sequel began in 2017, it has taken so long because the picture incorporates both motion capture and live-action aspects.
Also known is that the 190-minute, or three hours and ten minutes, long film will be an epic. Because there are “more characters to service,” according to Cameron, the length of the film is necessary.
Will Disney+ or other streaming services carry the release of Avatar 2?
Avatar 2 will very definitely be a theater-only release when it opens on December 16, because there has been no official announcement concerning streaming services.
It appears likely that Avatar 2 will have a 30 or 45 day exclusivity period before it becomes available on streaming sites based on prior cinema-exclusive releases. Although we’d anticipate seeing it on Disney+ and/or Hulu+, we haven’t received a formal confirmation as of yet. As additional information becomes available, we’ll update this post.
To catch up on the story of Pandora, the Na’vi, and Jake Sully in the interim, you may watch the original Avatar online with Disney+.
Avatar 2: Will it be in 3D?
Numerous movies have been made in an effort to replicate the wonder of Avatar’s totally immersive 3D experience as a result of James Cameron’s stereoscopic revolution. None of these films were quite able to match the depths of Avatar’s breathtaking cinematography, and the short-lived trend of 3D smart TVs also faded away.
Why did Avatar 2 take so long to release?
James Cameron reportedly needed the correct technology to film motion capture underwater, which is why the movie has experienced numerous failures and delays. Cameron has assured us that the 13-year wait will have been worthwhile and that there will be three more films, due out in 2024, 2026, and 2028.
About James Cameron:
James Cameron is a Canadian filmmaker who was born on August 16, 1954 in Kapuskasing, Ontario. He is most known for his pioneering special effects films, such as Titanic (1997), for which he earned an Academy Award for best director, and Avatar (2009).
“When I sat down with my writers to start Avatar 2, I said we cannot do the next one until we understand why the first one did so well,” James Cameron told The Times. “We must crack the code of what the hell happened.”
He added: “All films work on different levels. The first is surface, which is character, problem and resolution. The second is thematic. What is the movie trying to say? But Avatar also works on a third level, the subconscious. I wrote an entire script for the sequel, read it and realised that it did not get to level three. Boom. Start over. That took a year.”
