James Cameron Shares A Big Update About 'Avatar 2'

James Cameron shared a brand new update about the status of the upcoming Avatar sequel.

The 66-year-old director spoke with Arnold Schwarzenegger in a video call ahead of the 2020 Austrian World Summit environmental conference and revealed that the sequel is complete.

James also opened up about how the pandemic affected filming on the movie.

“COVID hit us like it hit everybody. It hit us hard. We lost about four-and-a-half months of production,” he said. “As a result of that, we’ve rolled around one more full year for a release in December of 2022. That’s been announced already.”

James continued, “Now that doesn’t mean I have an extra year to finish the film, because the day we deliver Avatar 2 we’ll just start working on finishing Avatar 3.”

“So where we are right now, I’m down in New Zealand shooting — we’re shooting the remainder of the live action, we’ve got about 10 per cent left to go. We’re 100 per cent complete on Avatar 2, and we’re sort of 95 per cent complete on Avatar 3.”

Avatar 2: The Way of Water is expected to hit theaters in December 2022.

Earlier in the summer, James shared a pic of the set from New Zealand. You can see it here…
