We now know the release dates for all four “Avatar” sequels, and we are so prepared
If it seems like it’s been a looooong time since Disney released an Avatar movie, well, it has. The original film was released in 2009. And despite plenty of talk of not just one, but four Avatar sequels (and an Avatar theme park at Disney!), we still don’t have anything to show for it.
That is, until now.
The release dates for all four Avatar sequels have been revealed.
Director James Cameron is shooting all four films at once, according to a post on the movie’s official Facebook page.
The movie dates are as follows: Sequel 1 releases on December 18, 2020, sequel 2 on December 17, 2021, sequel 3 on December 20, 2024, and sequel 4 on December 1, 2025.
We still have a few years to go before we get to the first sequel.
But once we get there, we have two years of new Pandora adventures, followed by a three-year break, and then two MORE years of the gorgeous CGI world.
Yup, that’s a lot of Avatar.
This reveal is big. The estimated release date for the first sequel has been pushed back three times — from December 2014 to 2016 to 2018 and, now, to 2020.
If you’re wondering if the long wait was worth it, let these words from director James Cameron console you:
"I can tell you one thing about them: They’re gonna be bitchin.’ You will sh*t yourself with your mouth wide open."
Those are some strong words.
We can’t wait.
