Look, we can’t lie… we’re getting it hard to be excited about an Avatar sequel (let alone four!) but what do we know?

James Cameron’s Avatar 2 is filming this week…

And that’s all we know. Pre-production has been going on for a while now but the filming and motion capture will be in production before the week’s end.

In a statement on the official Avatar Facebook page (here), it was confimed that film two comes in 2020, film three in 2021, film four in 2024 and film five in 2025.

Great to be working with the best team in the business! Avatar takes flight as we begin concurrent production on four sequels. The journey continues December 18, 2020, December 17, 2021, December 20, 2024 and December 19, 2025!” it read alongside a picture of director James Cameron and his crew.

Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver all return for the sequels which have been written by Cameron along with Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman, and Shane Salerno.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
