He says that the other two sequels, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 will release in the year 2018 and 2019 respectively.
In an interview with Variety, Gianopulos revealed the reason behind making Avatar 2 after a long eight-year gap after Avatar was released since the director James Cameron “has his pace”. Gianopulos also said that when Cameron pitched the idea of the movie “Avatar”, the Fox executives got perplexed. There was a lot riding on the film, and this riding charged $237 million.
In the first movie, Cameron created technology that was very much far ahead of its time. Well now all the section is in its position and the story is being finalized.

It was nominated for nine Academy Awards, which includes Best Picture, Best Director and has also won three awards for Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, and Best Visual Effects.
In an interview with IMDb, Cameron said that he wants to shoot many of the scenes of Avatar 2 underwater. To shoot the underwater scenes, he is developing a very innovative technology and also a new submarine to permit him to pursue this dream. The buzz was that the ocean ecosystem of Pandora would have been the spotlight of the sequel and originally was scheduled to be released in January 2017, but then it was postponed to Christmas 2017. The delay in releasing the movie was simply done just to give adequate time to make the necessary technologies perfect.
Cameron and his Avatar producing colleague Jon Landau issued a statement together honoring Horner and also said that the Avatar society has lost one of the grand imaginative lights.
While the preparation and production of the highly expected sci-fi film Avatar 2 was going on, at that point of time the studio got astonished by the news about the death of the film’s music director James Horner who died in a plane crash in California just a week ago.

The stories for each movie have been finalized. Cameron unveiled the fact that was preparing to film the sequels at an advanced frame rate in contrast to the Hollywood industry’s standard 24 frames per second.
