Avatar 2 Has Another New Release Date But This Time So Do All The Sequels
A long time ago, over seven years to be precise, James Cameron gave the world Avatar, which went on to blossom into the most successful film ever released with a gross of $2.788 billion. Since then we've been waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for Avatar's 2 sequels to at least go into production.

The Weird Way James Cameron Has Been Approaching The Avatar Sequels
As you may remember, Stephen Lang's character in James Cameron's Avatar, Colonel Quaritch, didn't live to see the end of the movie. Because of this, it was rather surprising news when it was revealed by the writer/director that Quaritch would be destined to become the Darth Vader of the franchise.

How Stephen Lang Learned He’d Be Coming Back For Avatar 2 And Beyond
While the first of James Cameron's three upcoming Avatar sequels was originally going to be released at the end of 2016, that planned shifted in January when it was revealed that the schedule was being pushed back a full year. Why did this happen? 20th Century Fox chairman-CEO Jim Gianopulos has a direct answer.
Ever since Sigourney Weaver announced that she would be back to star in Avatar 2 back in 2010, we have been scratching our heads about the situation. After all, her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, very clearly died towards the end of the film - so how could Weaver be coming back?

How It's Possible For Sigourney Weaver To Be In The Avatar Sequels
If Hollywood is good at anything, it's resurrecting dead characters. Sigourney Weaver, also known as Dr. Grace Augustine in James Cameron's mega hit Avatar, is able to attest to that fact. Much like Ellen Ripley before her, the good doctor is going to be resurrected from the dead, as most of us assumed but in a different form.

Sigourney Weaver To Transform With Each Avatar Sequel
More than just organizing her shooting schedule, she has already made a trip down to where the massive production will be taking place, getting her head around what to expect. That said, she still hasn't seen an actual script just yet, but she does already have an emotional connection to the story just through what the project's director has told her about.
In a move that should surprise nobody, 20th Century Fox has made a deal with both Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana to have them reprise their roles as Jake Sully and Neytiri in not only Avatar 2, but also Avatar 3 and Avatar 4. Up until this point the only actor actually attached to all of the movies in the franchise was Stephen Lang, who will play the "Darth Vader" of the series and the central antagonist.

Avatar Sequels Officially Add Sam Worthington And Zoe Saldana
This, of course, won't be the first time that a major blockbuster franchise has filmed a bunch of movies at the same time. Peter Jackson decided that this method was the best way for him to make his Lord of the Rings trilogy - a series that went on to become an unquestionable success - and he did it again when it came time to start filming The Hobbit.
What will happen in Avatar 2? Again, it depends on who you ask, and at what point. Cameron has dropped varying hints about it for years, but we probably can't count on anything said before The Sarah Connor Chronicles veteran Josh Friedman was hired to write the Avatar 2 script… and that was yesterday

Three Avatar Sequels Officially Announced, With The First Coming December 2016
James Cameron is still working on not one, but two Avatar sequels to follow his 2009 science fiction adventure film. And, based on comments made in a recent interview, it sounds like he has a general idea for a fourth film, which would be a prequel to the trilogy.
There have been multiple franchises that have made the decision to shoot sequels back-to-back in order to cut down on time between releases. We've seen it before in franchises like Pirates of the Caribbean, The Matrix and Back To The Future, where parts two and three were pushed together, but only once before has a series chosen to shoot three movies back-to-back and that was Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy.
