Imagine a sequel so epic that it took more than a decade to make happen…
…If you’re thinking Universal Soldier: Regeneration, I like how your mind works. This bit of filmlore, however, goes in the direction of fantasy visionary James Cameron in the wake of his 2009 action adventure, Avatar, a film so nice it was released twice and with earnings of up to nearly $2.8 billion dollars.
That’s a fat chunk of change for 20th Century Fox and I’m sure they’re more than grateful at this juncture, and even moreso determined to make the next four movies the best of the bunch. And even better, they all now all have dates courtesy of the latest official Facebook update
Great to be working with the best team in the business! Avatar takes flight as we begin concurrent production on four sequels. The journey continues December 18, 2020, December 17, 2021, December 20, 2024 and December 19, 2025!
Actor Sam Worthington is expected to reprise his role as Jake Sully following the events from the first film which centered on paraplegic soldier whose crisis of conscience brings him face to face with the looming threat of corporate colonization and military might against a rich, autonomous and thriving alien planet and its people, the Na’vi. Following the epic battle that ensued, he permanently transfers his consciousness to his Na’vi host, granting him a new life with Princess Neytiri, played by actress Zoe Saldana.
The films’ dates were previously stamped and yet were subsequently moved as the Avatar saga evolved and developed its intricate plan for production. Apart from the addition of actress Sigorney Weaver who plays a scientist in the first film, more casting news officially awaits while production is expected to commence this Fall.
