It has been reported that there could still be another four year wait for the sequel to the 2009 record breaking movie Avatar. That means that we will not get to see Avatar 2 hit the big screen until 2016, a staggering seven years after the first Avatar movie. Avatar producer Jon Landau has claimed that the earliest possible date that an Avatar sequel will be released is in December 2015 and that would be without any problems between now and then, so is unlikely.
Everybody knows that Avatar has become James Cameron’s baby and that he will not release Avatar 2 until he is 100% happy with the outcome of it. However, it is unclear whether there would still be that same buzz around an Avatar sequel in four years time, as fans are already beginning to pick holes in the original Avatar movie.
It seems that James Cameron is biding his time and is waiting until he can deliver a technical masterpiece that could rival that of the first Avatar movie. Fortunately though, there will be less of a wait between Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, as they are planning to shoot them back to back, with Avatar 3 being released a year after Avatar 2.
