Hollywood director James Cameron released his film Avatar in 2009, which grossed $2.79 billion at the box office.
The record for the highest-grossing film for almost 10 years was held by Avatar, which was broken by Avengers and Game last year.
After the success of the film, James Cameron had announced to work on 5 sequels, but even after 11 years, none of them could be released.
Over the past few months, however, pictures of Avatar’s celluloid sets have been circulating on social media, shooting in New Zealand.
Now, James Cameron has announced that after 11 years, the shooting of Avatar 2 has finally been completed and the work of the third part of it has almost been completed.
The delay in making the film is not surprising as James Cameron started making the avatar in 1994 when he wrote the 80-page main idea.
Filming for the film was supposed to begin after the Titanic in 1997, but the director could not find the technology he wanted.
Even the language for the space life that was shown in the film was developed by him and it was the most expensive film of its time, on which 237 million dollars were spent.
Speaking on a video call with Arnold Schwarzenegger during the Austrian World Summit Environment Conference, he said that they are currently shooting in New Zealand, we have completed 100% shooting of Avatar 2 and 95% shooting of Avatar 3. ‘
He said the shooting was delayed as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
He said that COVID-19 affected them like everyone else, wasting four and a half months of production and as a result, the release of Avatar was delayed by a year which will now be released in December 2022 instead of December 2021.
In Avatar 2, Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Giovanni Ribisi and Sigourney Weaver will once again be seen playing their roles in Avatar 2, with the addition of a few new characters.
Avatar 2 has been delayed several times and it was recently announced that it will be released on December 16, 2022, instead of December 2021, while Avatar 2 will be released on December 20, 2024, instead of December 3, 2023.
Avatars 4 and 5 will hit cinemas in 2026 and 2028, respectively.
