James Cameron Shares His Disappointment As Avatar Sequels Gets Delayed
Filmmaker James Cameron is disappointed with the delay in release of his much-awaited sequel Avatar. However, Cameron promised that the wait will be worth it, saying that the sequels will deliver to the expectations. James’s long-delayed sequels to Avatar will now premiere every other December, starting 2022. The second instalment, which was originally planned to open in 2014, will debut 13 years after the release of the first film. Reportedly, Cameron took to Instagram to address the delay amid the ongoing global pandemic. He started off by saying “I see you” in Na’vi, the official language of Pandora. He went on to say that they are currently filming in New Zealand, but the pandemic is preventing them to do virtual production work on their stages in Los Angeles. “That work is just as critical to films as the live action work,” he said. Cameron went on to say that the sequel was on track for a December 2021 release date prior to the pandemic. The virus crisis has impacted the schedule and they will no longer be able to make that date.
