James Cameron has finally decided on the release dates for the next four Avatar sequels, with the first coming out in 2020.
The movie’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a photo of Cameron and his massive film crew, who have been working on all four films simultaneously. The post said Avatar 2 will hit theatres by 18 December, 2020, and Avatar 3 comes a year later, on 17 December, 2021.
The franchise then takes a three-year hiatus before returning with Avatar 4 on December 20, 2024, and Avatar 5 on December 19, 2025. The first sequel had been expected in 2018 but Cameron this year said that timetable wouldn’t be met.
The original 2009 Avatar film has netted over $2.7 billion, centering on the conflict between humans and the blue-skinned alien race Na’vi of Pandora.
