      Avatar 2 Pushed to December 2021, Sequels Will Release Every Other Year




      The young actors who will play Jake and Neytiri’s children in Avatar 2 have been revealed in a first-look photo. After years of planning, filming finally got underway Monday on writer-director James Cameron’s Avatar 2, the first of four sequels to the filmmaker’s sci-fi opus that will be shot consecutively and released in 2020, 2021, 2024 and 2025.
      Of course, the first Avatar film made its historical mark on film when it was released in 2009, going on to earn to earn nine Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Director; and winning three (for its visual effects, cinematography and art direction). More than anything, the film – which chronicled the plight of the blue-skinned, 10-foot-tall aliens on the far, far away world of Pandora – was an groundbreaking smash with moviegoers, as it earned more than $2.78 billion worldwide, beating Cameron’s other mega-blockbuster film, Titanic (which earned $2.18 billion globally).
      Now that filming is underway after Cameron spent years toiling away at writing scripts for the rest of the series (which is officially know as the Avatar Sequels), some pieces of the plot of Avatar 2 are starting to be revealed. With the release of the film coming 11 years after the original, apparently Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) have been very busy in the interim raising a family.

      In a new photo exclusive to EW, the youth cast has been revealed. Three of the seven children pictured belong to Jake & Neytiri, while three others belong to another Pandorian clan called the Metkayina, “who dwell on giant oceanic atoll reefs under the rule of a leader named Tonowari (Cliff Curtis).”

      Their film likenesses, naturally, will differ greatly once their motion capture work is done and the characters are rendered, so at this point it’s tough determine what their characters will look like when all is said and done. The only actor who cast as a human characters is 12-year-old is Jack Champion (who will play Javier “Spider” Socorro, a teenager born at the Hell’s Gate military complex on Pandora), a location that was key in the original Avatar.
      In an interview with EW, Cameron’s longtime producer Jon Landau says the roles the child actors play in Avatar 2 is just the beginning of their involvement in the series. He says:
      “We never had this youthful element before, and that brings a different kind of energy to the film. They represent the future generation of Pandora and play a very significant role—not just in this movie but throughout all the movies.”


      Without question, the Avatar Sequels is the most ambitious project any filmmaker has undertaken in Hollywood, but if anybody has proven they can defy the odds with risky, big-budget projects, it’s Cameron. Naturally, part of the risk here is that he’s bringing aboard a largely unknown young cast, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be up to the task (look what the group of relative newcomers did for IT). Besides, they’ll have a group of seasoned actors on set to help guide them with Worthington, Saldana and Curtis, as well as Sigourney Weaver (Grace Augustine) and Stephen Lang (Miles Quaritch).

      Kate Winslet Cast In Avatar Sequels








      Academy Award winning actress Kate Winslet has been cast in a starring role in James Cameron’s Avatar sequels. After years of preparation, the followups to Cameron’s 2009 blockbusters are finally in production, with the first scheduled to hit theaters in 2020. Many of the actors from the original film, including Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, and Stephen Lang, are returning for the highly ambitious project, but there are some newcomers to the fledgling franchise. A collection of child actors have been brought on to play Na’vi children, and the likes of Cliff Curtis and Oona Chaplin have joined as well.
      Cameron, always one to reach for the stars, attempted to get some A-listers to play on Pandora before filming started. Though he failed convincing Josh Brolin to come onboard, the director was able to make the Avatar sequels a Titanic reunion by bringing the one and only Kate Winslet into the fold.
      According to Deadline, Winslet has been cast as a character referred to as Ronal. The report did not state if this individual is one of the human characters or a Na’vi – though Winslet has the chops to pull off either. Cameron had this to say about the development:

      “Kate and I have been looking for something to do together for 20 years, since our collaboration on Titanic, which was one of the most rewarding of my career. I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life





      Despite Winslet’s history with Cameron, this news arguably comes as a bit of a surprise. Though the actress did have a supporting role in the Divergent series, she has largely steered clear of big-budget tentpoles throughout her career. Winslet tends to appear in prestige dramas that have hopes of contending for awards, such as Steve Jobs and The Reader. Even when she dipped her toes in high-concept genre fare, it’s something smaller like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. This is the first time Winslet will lend her talents to bona fide blockbuster films, and it’ll be interesting to learn more details about her character as the Avatar sequels make their way through production. It’s unknown how many of the followups Winslet will be in, but if she’s “starring,” then it’s likely a key role that will carry over through multiple entries in the series.
      Getting Winslet is a huge get for the Avatar world, as it in a way gives the sequels some credibility. Though the first film was the biggest box office hit of all-time and earned a Best Picture nomination, some have questioned the need for four followups to a movie that’s left a minimal footprint on the pop culture zeitgeist. The allure of Winslet should be enough to pique the interests of casual audiences and cinephiles, if only to see what she brings to the table. Something about what Cameron has in store was enough to sell Winslet on the idea, so there’s likely something special in the works.

      Avatar 2 Pushed to December 2021, Sequels Will Release Every Other Year



      James Cameron's Avatar 2has been pushed to December 2021, and the subsequent three sequels will be released every other year after. The long-awaited sequel was originally set to release in 2020.
      Released in 2009, Avatarwas James Cameron's epic return to directing feature films, over a decade after the massive success of Titanic. Cameron redirected his focus to underwater documentaries, like Ghosts of the Abyss and Aliens of the Deep, before making a record-breaking return to Hollywood, with Avatar becoming the first film to cross the $2 billion dollar mark (a feat Avengers: Endgamejust achieved as well). Now, Cameron is returning to the Avatar franchise with four sequels in development, with the first film's original cast set to return, including Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lange, Sigourney Weaver, and Giovanni Ribisi. However, fans will have to wait a bit longer for the first sequel, which was originally slated to release in 2020.


      Walt Disney Studios released its upcoming slate of films, including everything from new
      Star Warsfilms to adaptations like Artemis Fowl, stretching all the way to 2027. And, according to the new schedule, it's been confirmed that Avatar 2 will be released on December 17, 2021, as opposed to its initial release date on December 18, 2020. It's also been confirmed that Avatar 3will be released December 22, 2023 (originally slated for December 17, 2021), Avatar 4will be released December 19, 2025 (originally slated for December 20, 2024), and Avatar 5 will be released December 17, 2027 (originally slated for December 19, 2025).

      After
      Disney acquired Fox, some changes were inevitable - and this release schedule is the first significant example of how Disney is handling the near-future of its investment. However, Avatar is hardly Disney's only juggernaut of a franchise, and the schedule also details big developments in a galaxy far, far away with a host of new Star Wars films releasing over the span of the next seven years, starting in 2022. Though it hasn't been confirmed what specific titles will fit into these slots, it's possible that the schedule refers to either Rian Johnson's or David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' upcoming Star Wars trilogies.


      As for Avatar 2 and its subsequent sequels, Cameron already put a lot on his plate promising so many films in such a short period of time. So, whether the date changes have to do with Cameron needing more time with effects or Disney simply preferring his films weren't rushed remains to be seen. That said, given Cameron's track record with long gaps between his projects, year-long delays for his next four films is nothing by comparison.
