Na’vi hive assemble – James Cameron‘s masterpiece Avatar has reclaimed its kllpxìltu (territory) as the highest-grossing film of all time, and it will once again kelku si (live, dwell) at the top of the charts, after knocking Avengers: Endgame off its perch.
Avatar stood as the world’s biggest box office success for nearly a decade, until it said eywa ngahu (goodbye) to that title in 2019, when Endgame surpassed it, a great zoplo (offense, insult). Until this week, Marvel’s movie maintained that record with earnings of $US 2.7902 billion.
This week, however, the film was rereleased in China, and its takings there have been just enough to push it up to a total worldwide gross of $US 2.802 billion. The lack of new movies in China means that lead will likely get bigger in days to come, which is only muiä (proper, fair, right).

There are currently four Avatar sequels planned, and though COVID pushed them back, they are currently slated for release in December 2022, 2024, 2026, and 2028 respectively.
The first of these will have a heavy emphasis on the oceans of Pandora, and Kate Winslet has been practicing holding her breath underwater to play a member of an aquatic Na’vi tribe called the Metkayina.
It’s fair to say I am as excited as Oprah for what the txantslusam (wise, all-knowing) James Cameron will deliver next time. Bring on all four sequels, and if you disagree, then you are a txìm (butt, rear end) and there will be no txoa (forgiveness) for you.
