So, we’re not making Avatar 2 — we’re making Avatar 2, 3, 4 and 5. It’s an epic undertaking. It’s not unlike building the Three Gorges dam… It’s pretty exciting stuff. I wish I could share with the world. But we have to preserve a certain amount of showmanship and we’re going to draw that curtain when the time is right.

Avatar 2 — the first of four planned sequels to 2009’s box office smash, which remains the highest-grossing film of all-time — was originally slated for a 2014 release and has been delayed every year since. Avatars 3, 4 and 5 were originally slated for 2020, 2022 and 2023, respectively, and it remains unclear if 2‘s latest delay will impact those three followups.
