James Cameron’s 2009 Avatar has attained immense success after its premiere. The groundbreaking visual effects of the movie have gained high praises from critics. Moreover, it broke several box office records during its theatrical run.
As a matter of fact, Avatar grossed almost $3 billion and consequently became the highest-grossing film at that time. It even surpassed the 1998 romance drama Titanic, which held the records for twelve long years. The movie gripped the title for a decade, before Avenger’s Endgame undermined it in 2019.
James Cameron signs up for 4 Avatar sequel
20th Century Fox has considered Avatar’s success. The company then decided to produce four sequels under the eye of its original creator, James Cameron.
Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 drop on December 17, 2021, and December 22, 2023, respectively. Meanwhile, subsequent sequels 4 and 5 are slated for December 19, 2025, and December 17, 2027 premiere.
One of the showrunners of the film franchise has shared that each of the four sequels will play as a standalone movie. Every film will have a corresponding story and conclusion. However, the journey across all four movies will create an even larger connected epic saga for audiences around the world.
