Clear out your calendar and start saving those pennies — you officially have a target date for your return trip to Pandora.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, James Cameron revealed that his two planned sequels to Avatar are currently in the scriptwriting phase with Christmas 2014 and 2015 release dates in mind: “I am in the process of writing the next two Avatar films now. We are planning to shoot them together and post them together, and we will probably release them not quite back to back, but about a year apart. Christmas ’14 and ’15 is the current plan.”
Cameron remains mum on plot details, though he revealed that most of the surviving faces from the original Avatar would return for another round. “Basically, if you survived the first film, you get to be in the second film, at least in some form.”
The director also revealed that he and Fox have reached a deal where many of the proceeds from Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 will be donated to various charities. “Fox has partnered with me to donate a chunk of the profits to environmental causes that are at the heart of the Avatar world,” he said. “I didn’t want to make more Avatar movies without a grander plan in place.”
