James Cameron's "Avatar 2: The Way of Water" has been filling movie theaters around the world for about a month now, more than 13 years after the release of the first part. The elaborately presented underwater world and the almost obligatory 3D experience fascinate many moviegoers, and as far as Cameron is concerned, there will be no lack of material for further releases in the years to come.
The director spoke to the French news site 20 Minutes a few days ago about the third part, which is scheduled for release in 2024. After the oceanic clan of the Metkayina was introduced in detail, things will get much more heated in the sequel. Cameron teased an appearance by the so-called Ash People, which will also bring overtly evil Na'vi to the film series for the first time. The stark contrast between almost entirely evil humans and almost entirely good Na'vi will thus become much more vague in the future, which will certainly benefit the plot's overall depth.
Whether and to what extent the upcoming sequels "Avatar 3" to "Avatar 5" will be released depends largely on the success of the current second part. As expected, it was able to break the 1 billion US dollar mark in the first two weeks, but in the best case scenario it must bring in another billion to become worthwhile for Disney. "Avatar 3" is scheduled for release on December 20, 2024, and is currently in the post-production phase.
