Three Sequels Planned For Avatar, Avatar 2 To Release In 2016

One of the biggest and most successful 3D-movies, 2009’s Avatar, will have three sequels. This was announced by 20th Century Fox and James Cameron (who, just in case you didn’t know, was the director of Avatar).

Talented screenwriters Shane Salerno, Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver have all agreed to be a part of this huge project. The second, third and fourth parts will be produced by James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment. WETA will be in-charge of the special effects this time as well.

Also, the second part (Avatar 2, perhaps?) is set to release in December, 2016. The third and fourth parts will release in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

    In this one, the humans come back with the big guns.

    • I never understood the whole “hey, let’s bomb them with all of these explosives” when you have the ability to reach orbital velocity. I think someone could find a big rock hanging around and say “oops, sorry about your tree getting hit by space rock…let us help you with that…”

        Damn dude… that’s actually pretty good

        Indeed, you should see some of the kinetic energy weapons they were developing in the 1980’s to take out Soviet missile silos.

    this smells like the sequels of the matrix all over again

    • Skakried

      False , the first matrix movie was actually good.
      The first avatar movie was just pochahontis with blue people.

        it was not pochahontis. stop spreading that crap.

        it was fern gully and I liked both movies 🙂

    Avatar 2, 114 minutes of Humans deliberating on nuking from orbit. 5 minute CGI of massive thermonuclear explosions mushrooming all over pandora.

  • Kevin

    What about Battle Angel Alita?

  • Scott Baxter

    The book was way better.

    I thought of a few of those things too but then I remembered. this is not a MILITARY operation guys. its a CORPORATE operation. How many corporations have access to nukes? Did you SEE the ship that brought them to pandora? clearly they still lack the means to “move” any rocks of enough mass to be effective kinetic weapons.

    plus they are not really “authorized” to simply wipe out the planet (this is even brought up in the story) they overstep their bounds quite a bit with the attack and only the 11 year time lags even permits them to get away with that.

    a corporation is far more likely to “cut its losses” than come back for nuclear vengeance. they will just mine elsewhere if at all.
