Avatar 2 filming is “100% complete” reveals James Cameron
The 2009 science fiction film Avatar sequel is “100% complete” as revealed by director James Cameron. Cameron revealed this in an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger in a video call ahead of the 2020 Austrian World Summit environmental conference. This follows delays and setbacks caused by the coronavirus pandemic where he said they have lost four and half months of production, the scheduled release date also being pushed back eight times since the commencement of production. Cameron also revealed that the filming of Avatar 3 is almost near completion.
Cameron who spoke to Schwarzenegger from New Zealand acknowledged that he and his crew are lucky to be filming in New Zealand being the chosen location for the production years ago seeing they have among the best response to the COVID-19 pandemic. ‘We are able to operate. we’re able to shoot, and we’re able to more or less have a normal life here right now,’ He said.
We would recall that 2009 Avatar broke box office records, becoming the first film to gross more than $2bn. While it was overtaken by Avengers: Endgame in 2019, it held the distinction of being the highest-grossing film of all time for nearly a decade.
Avatar 2 is set to be released 12 years after the events of the first movie, after eight release date changes, Avatar 2 is currently slated to premiere on December 16, 2022, and Avatar 3 on December 20, 2024. Cameron revealed that there are plans for two more sequels of the movie but he stated that they won’t be made if Avatar 2 and 3 don’t make money.
We surely anticipate the release of the great movie as it been a long time coming and the expectations are high for the sequels set to be released.
