James Cameron Is Making Four ‘Avatar’ Sequels For 2018 Release
James Cameron is making four “Avatar” sequels with the first to be released in 2018. The director made the announcement on Thursday.
The other three films will be released at Christmas-time in 2020, 2022 and 2023.
“So far, what I am seeing in pure imagination is far beyond the first film,” Cameron said. He said that very few people have seen the initial concepts, but a select few have been left “speechless” by what they saw.
“We have decided to embark on a truly massive cinematic project, making four epic films, each of which stands alone but together forms a complete saga,” Cameron said.
Wow, so ambitious.
“Avatar” was great visually – but let’s be honest here: does it really need four sequels? I didn’t think the subject matter was that rich.
