Director James Cameron is currently developing four Avatar sequels and they all are in production. There hasn’t been much information on the story these sequels will tell, but in a recent interview with Variety, Cameron reveals that the sequels will be a family saga. He says:
“The storyline in the sequels really follows Jake and Neytiri and their children. It’s more of a family saga about the struggle with the humans.”
Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) will marry Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) or that is what we all thought and that Jake would become the new chief of the tribe. There was also no doubt that they would clash with the humans.
Avatar 2 is currently scheduled to hit theaters in Christmas 2018, but that can change according to Cameron, that is what he said:
“We haven’t moved that target yet, but we will if we need to. The important thing for me is not when the first one comes out but the cadence of the release pattern. I want them to be released as close together as possible. If it’s an annual appointment to show up at Christmas, I want to make sure that we’re able to fulfill on that promise.”
The other three films are set for 2020, 2022, and 2023.
