Avatar Sequels' Release Dates Pushed Back Years

Disney moves 'Avatar' sequels, announces new 'Star Wars' films

James Cameron's long-awaited and oft-delayed follow-up to "Avatar" has been pushed back another year. As such, all subsequent follow-ups have been bumped out of their original opening weekends that ranged from 2020 to 2025. It will be followed by three more sequels. It will be the first of three new, now untitled Star Wars entries that will release on the pre-Christmas weekend every other year.

Avatar happens to be the highest grossing movie in the world. However, Avengers: Endgame is fast catching it up, on $2.24bn (£1.7bn) and counting.

This is likely the start of the movies that will premiere in 2022, but there is no word if the subsequent movies will be three movies in the trilogy or if Disney is putting out different movies at that time.

But the most notable delay announced Tuesday was a familiar one: The long wait for more "Avatar" films will go on a little longer.

As of now, we know virtually nothing about these movies outside of their release dates, which is pretty par for the course for the tight-lipped franchise.

Though the fact he'll be 73 years of age by the time the five-movie franchise is completed (assuming these dates stick) is definitely a bit shocking.

The recent acquisition of Fox film studios means it has the rights to the film adaptation of West Side Story, which Fox had been working on with director Steven Spielberg.

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were tapped a year ago to create their own trilogy of Star Wars movies. Disney is launching new trilogies with new characters and drama.

Look, I'm an optimist, but the "Rise of Skywalker" trailer doesn't look all too enticing, and last year's "Solo" was the first Star Wars movie to flop at the box office.

Last November BBC News revealed four titles that were being considered for the Avatar sequels - The Way of Water, The Seed Bearer, The Tulkun Rider and The Quest for Eywa.

As exciting as the release date announcement is, one of the bigger question circulating on social media is what kind of films these might be, and who might direct these projects.
