We have all been itchy since Avatar 2009 waiting on Avatar 2 and the rest of the sequel as producer and director James Cameron made us aware. But it really hasn’t been easy as the dates kept pushing back since 2014 when we anticipated the 2nd installment of the popular sci-fi movie.
Well to cut a long story short, Avatar 2 is finally going to be released on December 16, 2022, having been pushed back from December 2021
The most recent delay was a result of production halted due to the global pandemic shutdown, not just the live-action filming in New Zealand, but also the “virtual production work” taking place in Los Angeles.
Like the first movie, there’s a lot of virtual production and visual effects needed for the movie, so it’s not like Avatar 2 could be released right now, otherwise they wouldn’t have delayed by a full year.
“Now that doesn’t mean I have an extra year to finish the film, because the day we deliver Avatar 2 we’ll just start working on finishing Avatar 3,” Cameron noted.
While we’ve been calling them Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and so on, there hasn’t been any official confirmation on what they will be called, though the BBC reported (somewhere November 2018) that the films could be called Avatar: The Way of Water, Avatar: The Seed Bearer, Avatar: The Tulkun Rider and Avatar: The Quest for Eywa.
Cameron later confirmed these are potential titles, but could be subject to change. There isn’t an official trailer for Avatar 2 yet but this is a trailer made by a fan for your anticipation.
