If you’re a fan of Avatar, you’ve likely seen the film taking over entertainment news in the last few days as a couple of big announcements have been made regarding the future of the franchise and who is helping play some important roles.
To be quite honest, for a while, we weren’t sure if we’d ever see the next Avatar movie, so a confirmed cast and release date, have made us very happy. While the next installment won’t hit theaters until 2020, we’re still really excited, as are Avatar fans around the world.
When Avatar was first released, James Cameron pictured two sequels to the film, but after sitting down with a crew, he realized that he needed more than that to do justice to the story. Now, fans are getting four more Avatar films and while they’re still a bit far off, news on what we can expect is slowly rolling in.
The first announcement allowed fans a look into the cast additions which consist of young actors and actresses that will make up Sully’s family and another Na’vi clan. The cast list is as follows.
Britain Dalton, Jamie Flatters, Bailey Bass, Duane Evans Jr, Trinity Bliss, Jack Champion, and Filip Geljo.
The next four films will roll into theaters beginning on December 18th, 2020 with Avatar 2. Avatar 3 hits theaters on December 17th, 2021 and then the franchise takes a 3-year break. Avatar 4 will be released on December 20th, 2024 and Avatar 5 debuts on December 19th of 2025.
Recently, news also broke that the budget for the films is upwards of a billion dollars for the upcoming Avatar films. However, when you look at the fact that the first Avatar film brought in nearly 3 billion dollars, well, that budget doesn’t seem so outrageous.
What do you most hope to see in the new Avatar films? Let us know.
