James Cameron reveals plans to release FOUR Avatar sequels

In 2009 James Cameron stood at the forefront of a new cinematic era with his Avatar epic, the first high-profile feature-length to be shot in native 3D.

However, the 3D revolution didn’t turn out as Cameron planned. Appetite for 3D content has fallen dramatically by the wayside, while content creators have practically given up on producing three-dimensional TV content.

Suddenly 2009 and the smashing of box office records seems like a generation ago, as we move into the 4K and HDR era.

Regardless, James Cameron is pushing on, like his Titanic into the iceberg, and has revealed plans for four new Avatar sequels and the creation of “a complete saga.”

The first will arrive in 2018, while the rest are lined up for 2020, 2022 and 2023. All of the films will be shot concurrently, while they’ll each tell a different story from Pandora.

“We have decided to embark on a truly massive cinematic project, making four epic films, each of which stands alone but together forms a complete saga,” Cameron said (via Variety).

“So far, what I am seeing in pure imagination is far beyond the first film,” he added, while concept art has apparently left insiders “speechless.”

Cameron stopped short of confirming whether all four sequels will be shot in native stereoscopic 3D, but the saga would look pretty odd if it regressed from six years ago.
