Avatar 2 may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean we’ll see the sequel. So it will be delayed soon.
After a series of delays, the James Cameron sequel suffered another delay in July 2020. Which means we won’t be returning to Pandora until December 2022. However, this is not really a continuation error as it is due to the current world situation.
Cameron seems pretty confident that Avatar 2 will be released in December 2022. Hopefully, there won’t be any more delays, especially if we’re lucky enough to see other Avatar 5 sequels to come. (Yes, Avatar 5.)
Before we go too far, however, here’s everything you need to know about Avatar 2.
Avatar 2 Release Date: when will hit theaters?
In short, Avatar 2 will finally be released on December 22, 2022, after being postponed from December 2021.
The latest delay was due to production delays due to the worldwide shutdown. Not only of live filming in New Zealand but also of “virtual production” in Los Angeles.
Production resumed in New Zealand in early June (but not without controversy) so let’s just hope there won’t be any more production delays as the sequel is slated for 2022.
In September 2020, Cameron announced that they were “100% complete” in Avatar 2 and about 95% complete in Avatar 3. This is likely only live-action in New Zealand, not the whole movie. by himself.
As with the first film, a lot of virtual and graphic productions are needed for the film. So it’s not that Avatar 2 just came out, or they wouldn’t be a year late.
“That doesn’t mean I have a year left to finish the movie because the day we ship Avatar 2. We’ll be working on getting Avatar 3 finished,” Cameron said.
As already mentioned, a new Avatar movie will follow every two years until Avatar 5 on December 22, 2028. Well, that’s the plan anyway.
If you want to know the full story of the long evolutionary journey, have a look here. In retrospect, it seems almost absurd that Avatar 2 is due out in December 2014 and Avatar 3 in December 2015.
These dates are late, you won’t be surprised to find out. Filming for Avatar 2 is scheduled to begin in April 2016. But April came and went and filming never started. In January of the following year, it was announced that work on the motion capture element of the film would begin in August 2017, but actually in September.
However, a fourth Avatar movie has been announced that brings it all back to December 2016, 2017, and 2018. But that’s * the calendar check * 2020 and we don’t have a sequel yet, let alone three.
All footage has been rebooted, with Avatar 2 slated for December 2017 (and the rest slated for 2018 and 2019). James Cameron blamed the “very complicated” writing process for the delays.
Then, in January 2017, Avatar 2 was delayed again, assuming he was dismayed after Star Wars: The Last Jedi slipped from May to December 2017.
The sequel is expected to be released in December 2020 before Disney postpones it to December 2021 after the Fox acquisition closes. Which brings us to the final delay.
However, Cameron was completely comfortable with any delay. “There was a seven-year gap between Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a seven-year gap between alien and extraterrestrial,” he said.
Title of the Avatar Sequence: What’s the name?
Although we call them Avatar 2, Avatar 3, etc., there is no official confirmation of their name.
However, the BBC reported that the films could be named Avatar: The Water’s Path, Avatar: The Seedbender, Avatar: The Tulkun Rider, and Avatar: The Search for Eywa. Which Cameron later confirmed as titles possible, but could be subject to change.
Cast: who will return
The original cast of the original avatar is under contract, so Cameron’s stars will be back when he finally arrives.
Zoe Saldana, who will play Princess Na’ vi Neytiri, was just playing in the Star Trek relaunch when she starred in the original film in 2009. Thanks to projects like Guardians of the Galaxy, he became the biggest innovation. Star to leave Avatar and transform the market to play aliens of many shades.
Sam Worthington will also return as artificial GPS Jake Souli. Although it’s fair to say that his success doesn’t reflect Saldana’s success.
Sci-fi goddess Sigourney Weaver and Baddie Stephen Lang will also return, although both characters died in the first film.
We had a behind-the-scenes photo of Weaver with producers Jon Landau and Joel David Moore. Defending the new script, he said, “After reading all four [Avatar scripts], I find them absolutely amazing and worth the wait.”
Commenting on Lang’s character, James Cameron said in a statement. “Steven was so memorable in the first movie that we are privileged to find him. I’m not going to say exactly how we’re going to get it back, but it’s a science fiction story. Finally.
“His character will evolve in very unexpected places as we progress through our three new films. I can’t wait to work with such a talented actor who has also become a good friend.”
Lang himself is clearly on the ship, even speculating that Avatar 2 could break the box office record in Avengers: Endgame today (which, you guessed it, got Avatar).
He also announced that later he could “really go into town and examine the character in detail.”
Weaver says he’ll be a whole new character, which, if true, would be such an odd choice if Na’vi’s tails were paired with other animals. So let’s say there is at least one precedent.
“This is really the funniest moment in a long time,” Weaver told Yahoo! “I just wish the movies were released sooner because I feel like people will need more avatars soon.”
CCH Pounder will also reprise the role of Neytiri’s mother, Mo’ at, and Matt Gerald will return as Corporal Lyle Wainfleet. Oona Chaplin from Game of Thrones and Cliff Curtis from Fear the Walking Dead will join the sequels, and Edie Falco (The Sopranos, Nurse Jackie) will play the new character, General Ardmore.
And there was no big announcement in October 2017: Kate Winslet is coming to a titanic reunion with James Cameron and playing the role of Ronal in the Avatar universe. This is their first collaboration since the 1997 blockbuster, with Cameron admitting that “they’ve been looking for something to do together for 20 years.”
Star Trek: Discovery’s Michelle Yeoh also appeared as Dr. Karina Mogue joined the cast, while Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel also starred.
Deadline also reported that Jemaine Clement has joined the series as a marine biologist. Ian Garvin, described by Cameron as “one of my favorite characters”.
There was some initial confusion over including David Thewlis from Harry Potter later. Turns out he’ll be in Avatar 3 (both 4 and 5) but not the second movie.
Cameron has revealed a few details about the Avatar 2 plot of the first “Family and Prison” movie over the years.
The director was also keen to point out that if you’re one of three people who didn’t see the original, the films can stand on their own.
“Every movie is an independent movie that we would love to see,” producer Jon Landau said. “You don’t have to have seen the first avatar to see Avatar 2. Sit there and we’ll take people on a visual and emotional journey that will end.”
A few years after the events of Avatar, Sully is now the chief of Neytiri and the high priest of his tribe, although the events focus on his children.
We’ve heard that they’ll also travel beyond Pandora’s forests to the underwater and volcanic environments that Cameron promises to ‘open his mouth’. It should be good, we think …
Landau confirmed during Fox’s presentation at CineEurope in June 2018 that water “plays a very important role” in movies.
To truly capture the meaning of water, Avatar will record 2 scenes of movement underwater.
“This has never been done before and is very complicated because our motion detection system, like most motion detection systems, is what is called an optical base, which means it uses pointers. which have been photographed with hundreds of cameras. ” Cameron Collider explained.
“The problem with water is not the underwater part, but the connection between the air and the water, which forms a moving mirror. This moving mirror reflects all points and pointers and creates a series of false marks.
“It’s like a fighter throwing a lot of garbage to jam a missile’s radar system. It creates thousands of false targets, so we had to figure out how to fix what we did.”
Although technological advancements are clearly an integral part of the film, Landau said of the four series: “Characters are at the heart of any film. One of the great qualities of great scripts is always universal and easily identifiable themes. There is no longer any theme, recognizable to the family.
“The heart of each of our four films will be the Sully family. Each sequel will play as a separate film. The story of each film will end … However, if we look at it as a whole, the journey is in all and four films become one. to create an even greater epic for audiences around the world. “
Not only has Lang returned as the late Colonel Miles Quaritch in some ways, but he’ll be the main villain in all four films.
There will also be a time jump between films, almost matching the delay between them, as Cameron confirmed that Jake and Natri have an 8-year-old daughter together while poking fun at Worthington in “Dark Places” Avatar 2 was due. go. and 3.
As for the appearance of the films, Cameron promises that they will be so advanced that it’s impossible to imagine what they will look like.
Trailer : Do you already have the pictures
Oh no! But there are plenty of fan trailers out there if you need anything to help you through until Avatar 2 arrives.
Cameron was realistic about the possibility of seeing the next four Avatar films. It all depends on how Avatar 2 works at the box office. But Cameron has promised Avatar 3 in 2024 if Avatar 2 is successful.
