Walt Disney Studios has set HN Entertainment a press release which includes their schedule for 2019 to 2027. The sheer volume of films is impressive as they’ve mapped out their December releases for four upcoming Star Wars films (three that are untitled) along with the four Avatar sequels from director James Cameron that will be released between Star Wars films.
Here are the new release dates that have been set as of today.
- Avatar 2 – December 17th, 2021
- Avatar 3 – December 22nd, 2023
- Avatar 4 – December 19th, 2025
- Avatar 5 – December 17th, 2027
The New Zealand leg of the filming is expected to begin this month and will most likely take place at Stone Street Studios in Wellington. They’ve only really admitted to filming the motion capture for Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 but could have started on Avatar 4.
Avatar 2 is said to be exploring the oceans of Pandora and we’ll likely see some naval/military operations from the RDA forces as well. I think we’ll eventually learn about the other films during the press rounds for Avatar 2 from James Cameron.
It’s cast includes Kate Winslet, Sam Worthington, Cliff Curtis, Zoe Salanda, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Michelle Yeoh, Oona Chaplin, Edie Falco, and Brandan Cowell.
I think many of us will be interested to see if Avatar 2 can match the success of the first installment that was released almost ten years ago come December. Avengers: Endgame is currently hoping to topple James Cameron’s box office records, as they already passed Titanic.
