In a move that is sure to titillate Avatar fans, writer-director James Cameron has revealed his audacious plans for not just three, not even five, but a mind-boggling six and seven Avatar films! However, before you get too excited, it seems that Cameron himself might not be the one to helm these future installments.
"We've already written up to movie five, and I've got ideas for six and seven, although I'll probably be passing the baton on at that point," Cameron confessed to Collider. "I mean, mortality catches up. But hey, we're having a blast. We get to collaborate with amazing people."
Now, if this sounds like déjà vu, it's because in 2022, Cameron also hinted that he might not direct Avatar 4 or 5. He described the process of making these films as "all-consuming" and expressed a desire to explore other projects. That being said, Cameron has yet to make any final decisions.
"Eventually, as time goes by—I don't know if that's after three or four films—I'll want to hand over the reins to a director I trust, so I can pursue other interests. Or maybe not. Who knows?" Cameron mused, leaving us in suspense.
While we eagerly await Avatar 3's release in December 2025 (which still lacks a title), let's take a moment to appreciate the groundbreaking impact of the franchise so far. With Avatar and Avatar: The Way of Water ranking as the highest-grossing movies of all time worldwide with $2.92 billion and $2.3 billion respectively, Cameron has secured his place in cinematic history. And let's not forget his other monumental achievement, Titanic, sitting comfortably at number four with $2.26 billion. It's like Cameron has a monopoly on the box office!
But what can we expect from Avatar 3 and beyond? Well, get ready for a twist! In this next installment, we're introduced to the dark side of the Na'vi. Yes, you heard it right. Evil Na'vi. Talk about turning the tables! It seems our good-intentioned heroes will face a formidable challenge as they confront their own kind.
Joining the returning cast, we have an exciting lineup of new talent, including Michelle Yeoh (The Witcher: Blood Origin), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), and David Thewlis (Harry Potter). Surely, these fresh faces will bring a fiery energy to their roles as members of the fire-focused faction. A clash of elemental forces awaits!
Now, as we ponder the future of the Avatar saga, we can't help but wonder who will take the reins from Cameron if he steps aside. Who possesses the audacity, creativity, and sheer vision to continue this epic journey? Only time will reveal the chosen one, the director who will guide us through the uncharted territories of Avatar 6 and 7.
In the meantime, let's revel in the anticipation of Avatar 3 and the secrets it holds. Will the Na'vi rise above their own darkness? Will new alliances be forged? Can Cameron's visionary storytelling continue to captivate audiences as it has done before?
