Avatar 2

Weta Digital starts work on James Cameron's four Avatar sequels (additional delays to come)

What's Na'vi for "shrug"?

Best known for their groundbreaking work on The Lord of the Rings and the Planet of the Apes trilogy, Weta Digital announced that they have begun work on James Cameron's four Avatar sequels. There is no word yet on what their work entails, or if they are pioneering any technology to help Cameron realize his dream of glassesless-3D.

The first Avatar sequel is scheduled for the year 2020, 11 years after the release of the award-winning box office mega-hit... At least until the release date gets pushed back yet again. And then again. And again.

Look, I keep joking that the sequels to Avatar will never get made. There have been multiple and constant delays over the years, which makes it seem like Avatar 2: The Search for Smurfy's Gold will never happen. For perspective, Terry Gilliam finished shooting The Man Who Killed Don Quixote before Avatar 2 even started production.

Clearly the Avatar sequels are adaptations of Don Quixote and Macbeth, and someone on the production ran afoul of Rocky Colavito.

We'll see what happens with all this Avatar-ing in a few months. As of this writing, Avatar 2 is set to begin production this fall.
