Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana will reprise their iconic roles as Jake Sully and Neytiri in three Avatar sequels scheduled to begin production later this year. 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment previously announced that James Cameron will direct the 3D fantasy-adventure films in New Zealand. Avatar 2, 3, and 4 will be shot back-to-back with subsidies from the New Zealand government. The three sequels will dive beneath the oceans of Pandora and perhaps visit neighboring moons as well.
James Cameron’s “AVATAR” continues with this second installment to be released in December 2016, with the second to follow in December 2017, and the third a year later. Cameron once again writes and directs for 20th Century Fox. “AVATAR 2″ will take viewers on a fantastic new journey of awe-inspiring alien worlds and epic battles all through the eyes of Jake Sully, a former Marine confined to a wheelchair, reborn in his avatar form. The final two films in the planned trilogy will be filmed together with plans to push the boundaries of CGI and digital 3-D technology.
