Avatar brings to the big screen what The Matrix did back in 1999... The Matrix perfected green-screen shooting and introduced "bullet time". Avatar brings that technological advancement in the form of CGI. Unfortunately it didn't bring a new story along with it. The Matrix left us a question as to whether or not we could all be in a simulated environment. Avatar left me wanting to sing "Colors of the wind" (Dances with Wolves/Pocahontas).

And that's where this goes to Hell...

 

A sequel or two can work, but when you do it for the sake of profit... Sequilitis, Seasonal Rot, all these are sure to follow. I support a sequel, but "one a year" and you risk becoming mediocre very, very soon.


And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

James Cameron has offered a first glimpse of the upcoming Avatar 2 by revealing the film’s official concept art. Check out the images below.

The long-awaited sequel, which will follow on from 2009’s Avatar, is finally due to be released in 2021 after being plagued by various delays. Live-action filming for the movie was completed last month.

Yesterday (January 6), director Cameron unveiled a selection of concept art pieces for the next Avatar chapter during the CES conference in Las Vegas. Four shots were later uploaded to the official Avatar Twitter account.

“In the #Avatar sequels, you won’t just return to Pandora — you’ll explore new parts of the world. Check out these brand new concept art pieces for a sneak peek at what’s to come,” the tweet reads.

[...]

As it stands, Avatar 2 is due to hit cinemas on December 17, 2021. It will be followed by Avatar 3 in 2023, Avatar 4 in 2025, and Avatar 5 in 2027.

^ It's nice and all, but... a little bland, generic and underwhelming.

Avatar 2 by this point is on the same level of despair as the James Webb Space Telescope.

Avatar Sequels Delayed Yet Again, Avatar 2 Won't Arrive Until 2022

July 23, 2020

Avatar 2 has been delayed by Disney yet again. James Cameron's long-awaited sequel, as well as the other planned installments in the franchise, have been pushed back by a full year. This comes as studios have been forced to shuffle release calendars, as movie theaters remain closed in the U.S. and productions are slowly trying to get back up and running following the shutdown.

Disney has now moved Avatar 2 from its previous date on December 17, 2021, to December 16, 2022. The news was confirmed via the official Avatar Twitter accounts. James Cameron shared a letter acknowledging the delay, while also explaining that it has to do with not being able to utilize their sound stages in Los Angeles. Here's what Cameron had to say about it.

This now means it will be 13 years between when Avatar hit theaters in 2009 and when the Avatar sequel arrives. Additionally, Avatar 3 is moving from December 22, 2023, to December 20, 2024. Meanwhile, Avatar 4 will shift from December 19, 2025, to December 18, 2026, while Avatar 5 moves from December 17, 2027, to December 22, 2028. Speaking further, James Cameron expressed his disappointment over the delay.

IMHO this phrase would sum up the whole idea of sequel. The story was told and the main message was delivered in original movie, and the continuation is simply not necessary. This is like Terminator: everything was actually over in Terminator-2, but they went on and on... sometimes is better to just stop and switch to something new.
