Pandora’s return has been postponed again, as ‘Avatar‘ director James Cameron has admitted that the second part of the film projected for 2018 will not happen and did not say when the new date will happen.
It was in 2010 when plans were announced to perform the second part of Avatar, at the same time, 20th Century Fox expected it to be released in 2014, which evidently did not happen, being repeatedly postponed.
The second part of the box office hit “Avatar” was delayed again and will not hit the screen in 2018 as expected, director James Cameron said. The filmmaker told us that he was working on the four sequels planned at the same time and did not have a specific date for the premiere of “Avatar 2”.
“Well, it will not happen in 2018. We have not announced a specific date,” the Oscar-winning director told the newspaper in an interview when asked about the progress of the second half.
“What people have to understand is that a premiere cadence. We’re moving at full throttle” James Cameron.
“Avatar”, the science fiction fantasy set in the distant magical world of Pandora premiered in 2009 by Twentieth Century Fox, set box office records with $2.8 billion worldwide.
The premiere of the sequel was scheduled for 2014 and was postponed at least three times since. Fox did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Cameron’s remarks.
“Avatar” is considered to be a saga of 5 films, which is seen far to occur, explained Cameron:
“What people have to understand is that it’s a cadence of releases. So we’re not doing Avatar 2. We’re doing Avatar 2, 3, 4 and 5. It’s an epic enterprise. So I know where I’ll be in the next eight years of my life. It is not an unreasonable period of time if you think about it. It took us four and a half years to make a movie and now we’re making four.”
