Avatar 2: James Cameron Shares Set Photos from Long-Awaited Sequel

After a decade of production, delays, and headlines, Avatar sequels are starting to look more realistic, with director James Cameron sharing new images from the much-anticipated set of Avatar 2.

One of the images shows Cameron’s gaze standing next to Eddie Falco and General Ardmore standing on the roof of a dragon warplane from the first movie. The images also feature a look at scenes of the ambitious sequel to capture the underwater performance. Take a look at the pictures below.

Photos revealed by this, who also spoke to Cameron about his avatar sequel making journey. Cameron called the process, โ€œkind of crazy,โ€ which makes sense, since the sequel entered the planning stages back in 2012. This franchise setting is also unique because we already know Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5 are all on the way. We also know that Avatar’s sequels cost $1 billion to produce, up to $250 million per movie.

The electronic warfare feature reveals that Avatar 2 and 3 will be a love letter to the sea, which Cameron discovered in his famous 1997 movie Titanic.

“I do the ocean when I’m not making movies,” Cameron said. “So if I can combine my two greatest passions, one being ocean exploration; the other, making films, why not?”

This fits with the plot details that are starting to flow around the sequel. We previously learned that Avatar 2 will focus on Jake Sully and his new family exploring new areas of Pandora, including spending a lot of time in and around the water. We’ve also seen concept art for The Crabsuit, a large, crab-like submarine coming to the Avatar sequels.

Avatar Sequence Arts concept revealed

As of September last year, Avatar 2 has concluded filming, with shooting in Avatar 3 also approaching. At one point, Avatar 2 was supposed to appear on Friday, but its current release date is December 16, 2022. Avatar 3 is set for December 20, 2024, with Avatar 4 set for December 2026, and Avatar 5 set for December 2028.

Movies aren’t the only Avatar projects in the works either. Ubisoft is making Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, a video game that will focus on “discovering the world and nature,” according to the developers.
