Director James Cameron had originally planned for “Avatar 2” to be released in December 2020 but the amount of visual effects needed, as well as the sale of Twentieth Century Fox to Disney, has pushed the release back to December 2021.
It will be the first of five planned sequels and reunites the original cast of Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Giovanni Ribisi, and Sigourney Weaver while Kate Winslet, Michelle Yeoh, Cliff Curtis, and Edie Falco will join the cast.
