Delayed release dates for Avatar’s sequels: producer Jon Landau Explains Why

Last year’s great debut of Avatar 2: The Way of Water increased the demand from fans for the other three expected sequels of the Avatar saga. The saga has made over 2.320 billion USD at the box office. James Cameron’s decision to produce three more movies is final.

However, it seems that fans will have to wait a little longer to see what happens next to Jake Sully and his family, since Disney has announced a major change in the scheduled release dates.

Avatar 3 was initially planned to be released in 2024, whilst now it’s being rescheduled for December 19, 2025, according to a report by Variety. The same thing happens to Avatar 4 and 5, which respectively have been delayed to December 21, 2029, and December 19, 2031.

The reason for these new dates comes directly from the producer Jon Landau, who made an official statement on Twitter: “Each Avatar film is an exciting but epic undertaking that takes time to bring to the quality level we as filmmakers strive for and audiences have come to expect. The team is hard at work and can’t wait to bring audiences back to Pandora in December 2025”.

Furthermore, as mentioned from James Cameron, some scenes for Avatar 3 have been shot during the making of The Way of Water, but post-production processes take a longer time to improve the quality of the movie to meet fans’ expectations.

The new release dates establish a very big time range between the first and the last movie, with over 20 years gap. Certainly, this delay will fuel fans with higher expectations regarding the breathtaking visual effects that are the most remarkable signature of the Avatar saga.
