‘Avatar 2’ Delayed Won’t Hit Theaters Until 2017

Date:

delays the release of ‘ 2' now the will be released a year later in 2017.

According to reports, James Cameron is currently working alongside a group of screenwriters on not just one but three different Avatar movies. The mission is to all three movies simultaneously and then releasing the movies one year after the other. It is a pretty risky move so, it is not surprising to learn that Cameron wants to spend more time developing the before he starts filming.

Avatar 2's expected release has been pushed back several times in the past. Cameron's previous December 2016 release date for Avatar 2 was a too early and he then pushed the back to late 2017 instead. He explained why he did it to the press in New Zealand – where he'll shoot the Avatar sequels – the process of writing the Avatar  while simultaneously designing the movie sets.

Here's how Cameron explained the situation, via ABC News:

“There's a layer of complexity in getting the story to as a saga across three films that you don't get when you're making a stand-alone film. [My team and I are] writing three simultaneously. And we've done that so that everything tracks throughout the three films. We're not just going to do one and then make up another one and another one after that. And parallel with that, we're doing all the design. So we've designed all the creatures and the environments.”

The new development strategy means that Avatar 2 will not hit theaters until eight years after  Avatar opened in theaters.  It is probably a good strategy for the Avatar franchise since Cameron is reponsible for the two highest-grossing movies of all time. But, the longer Cameron waits to start filming for Avatar, more and more people will start losing interest.

Avatar 2 is now expected to reach theaters in late 2017, followed by Avatar 3 in 2018 and Avatar 4 in 2019.
