James Cameron Delays AVATAR 2 Yet Again; No Longer Set For A December 2018 Release

James Cameron Delays AVATAR 2 Yet Again; No Longer Set For A December 2018 Release

Director James Cameron has been working extremely hard on Avatar 2 and the rest of the Avatar sequels, but now it appears that they aren't ready to be released anytime soon. Read on for more details!

Avatar came out in late 2009 and went on to make close to $3 billion worldwide, and after that massive success, Oscar-winning director James Cameron announced that there would be four sequels. 

Avatar 2 was first announced to be released on December 25, 2017, and was then delayed to December 2018 - however, Cameron has officially revealed that the sequels will be delayed yet again and won't come out anytime soon.

Here is his statement:


"Well, 2018 is not happening. We haven't announced a firm release date. What people have to understand is that this is a cadence of releases. So, we're not making Avatar 2, we're making Avatar 2, 3, 4, . It's an epic undertaking. It's not unlike building the Three Gorges dam. So I know where I'm going to be for the next eight years of my life. It's not an unreasonable time frame if you think about it. We're full tilt boogie right now. This is my day job and pretty soon we’ll be 24-7. It's pretty exciting stuff. I wish I could share with the world. But we have to preserve a certain amount of showmanship and we're going to draw that curtain when the time is right."

Cameron sounds like he's obviously very busy trying to perfect the sequels to his most personal project.
