James Cameron Pushes ‘Avatar’ Sequel To 2017

"Audiences won't be traveling to Pandora for at least two years"
It appears as though audiences will have to wait a little longer to go back to Pandora. According to Variety, writer/director James Cameron told the Associated Press that he has pushed back production on the Avatar sequels (three are being planned) and that the next chapter will not hit theaters until Christmas 2017, a year later than originally planned.


“We’re not just going to do one and then make up another one and another one after that,” Cameron told the Associated Press. “And parallel with that, we’re doing all the design. So we’ve designed all the creatures and the environments.”

Avatar remains the biggest box office hit in history, with a box office gross of $2.8 billion worldwide and  three Oscars wins for its technical achievements. The movie was also groundbreaking for its use of 3-D technology, which created the movement for big budget films to incorporate it into their filmmaking.

Despite the delay, there is no denying the anticipated excitement for what majestic new worlds and creations Cameron and his team are conjuring up. 2017 cannot come soon enough.
