Today, it was officially announced from the from Avatar twitter account that veteran character actress Edie Falco, best known from The Sopranos and Nurse Jackie has landed a huge military role in James Cameron’s Avatar sequels. Falco will be playing General Ardmore, who likely will be a massive thorn in the side of our heroes in the next couple of movies and essentially one of the new villains.

It’s not terribly shocking that Cameron would give a meaty military role like this to an actress.

“We are thrilled to share that Edie Falco is joining the as General Ardmore, the Commander in charge of the RDA’s interests in the Avatar Sequels!”

We are super excited to see some footage from Avatar 2 as they recently completed principal photography on the first two installments, as Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 are expected to ramp-up filming soon.

Edie will be joining Kate Winslet, Sam Worthington, Cliff Curtis, Zoe Salanda, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, and Oona Chaplin.

The original film earned a massive $2.8 billion and helped relaunch a new wave of 3D format that has helped boost ticket sales over the last ten years. It’ll be interesting if the next couple of films can replicate that success after a ten-year hiatus.

Avatar 2 had been previously slated for release on December 18th, 2020 but the merger could see that pushed to another spot.
