The 2009 film Avatar earned $2.8 billion worldwide, making it one of the top-grossing films of all time. As previously reported, that commercial clout led to not only one but four scheduled sequels. The official scheduled release dates presumably provide necessary time and freedom from what Cameron previously referred to as “limitations for our art form.”

“Great to be working with the best team in the business!” read a statement posted to the official Avatar Facebook page Saturday. “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!”

Not everyone was thrilled by the announcement.

literally the only person the world who wants 5 avatar movies is james cameron

Avatar was a terrible nonsensical film that follows the exact plot line of like 6 other also bad movies

@rameshlaus Nigga ..I rather go see Fast & Furious cast every other year until I die than wait for Avatar 4 & 5.

How horrible would it be if you fucked someone and then you found out they were excited for the next installments of Avatar?

In terms of public reception, Avatar currently maintains an 83 score on Metacritic and a similar audience score of 82 percent on Rotten Tomatoes

It would appear the fourth time is the charm when it comes to the announcement of the Avatar sequels, but at least Fox produced receipts in the form of showing the production crew this time around.
