BBC News is reporting that they have seen "documentation regarding future Avatar plans". These documents are said to reference four specific projects:
- Avatar: The Way of Water
- Avatar: The Seed Bearer
- Avatar: The Tulkun Rider
- Avatar: The Quest for Eywa
According to James Cameron; future instalments will explore Pandora's ocean. Cameron told Collider that Avatar 2 and 3 would feature "a tremendous amount of water work". Part of this will be achieved using footage captured by a deep-water submersible exploring the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Scenes have also been filmed with the cast under water and wearing motion capture suits, another first for the technology.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the director also revealed that Kate Winslet will be playing one of the "reef people".
Sigourney Weaver will be reprising her role of Doctor Grace Augustine - although we're not sure how. Recently she told The Hollywood Reporter that "we just finished shooting 2 and 3" and is now preparing to be "busy doing Avatar 4 and 5".
The sequels are due for release in:
- December 2020
- December 2021
- December 2024
- December 2025
It has been confirmed that despite being greenlit, 4 and 5 will not happen if 2 and 3 don't do well enough.
