Can you believe that it’s been a decade since James Cameron’s Avatar movie was released? Despite that 10-year gap, it is still the number one movie with the highest revenue of all time (although Avengers: Endgame could reach these numbers). Disney certainly wants to make some extra money on sequels so we know they are happening at some point.
Unfortunately, if you were hoping to see an Avatar sequel in the near future, we have some bad news. In a tweet by CNN’s Frank Pallotta, he has revealed that based on Disney’s timeline of movies that the sequel to the 2009 Avatar movie has been delayed by a few years. Previously, it was reported that the movie would be released in December of 2020, but now it looks like it will be released in 2021.
This has created a domino effect for the rest of the movies planned for the Avatar franchise, so the third title in the series will be released in 2023, the fourth in 2025, and the fifth in 2027. That’s a long way off. And that is after a decade already. Fans are in for a long long wait. Let’s hope that they don’t get pushed back again or we may never see them.
