Hey, so you remember Avatar, the movie about the blue space dudes that we all saw and then collectively decided to never mention again? Yeah, that one. There are going to be four more of them, and now they have release dates.
Director James Cameron has been planning his string of Avatar sequels for the better part of a decade, possibly misjudging the public’s thirst for more films about blue space dudes, and as of this week, they are officially in production.
Per an announcement on the official Avatar Facebook page, a thing that exists and somehow has almost 48 million likes (maybe I’ve misjudged the public’s thirst for films about blue space dudes) the release dates are now locked in.
The announcement read:
“Great to be working with the best team in the business! Avatar takes flight as we begin concurrent production on four sequels. The journey continues December 18, 2020, December 17, 2021, December 20, 2024 and December 19, 2025!”
The first Avatar sequel was planned for 2018, but was delayed due to the massive undertaking of bringing blue space dudes to life in three dimensions. James Cameron currently hopes to release all four sequels in glasses-free 3D at a high frame-rate.
The Avatar reboot, Tyler Perry’s Blue Space Dudes Can Do Bad All By Themselves, is due in December 2026.
