CCH Pounder Avatar 2

Remember the character Mo’at from James Cameron‘s Avatar? Of course you do! It’s Mo’at! You know, that one character…who does that thing…Okay, so I don’t remember Mo’at at all. But maybe some super fans will recall that Mo’at is a Na’vi spiritual leader and the mother of Zoe Saldana’s character, Neytiri.

Why does this matter? Because Mo’at is back, baby. Cameron has hired actress CCH Pounder to reprise her role in Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5.

Glasses-Free 3D

You may have seen a lot of headlines in the past 24 hours about how James Cameron’s long-awaited Avatar 2 will feature glasses-free 3D technology. Cameron’s an innovative filmmaker who has been working on developing brand new tech for underwater motion capture for his ambitious sequels, and his entire career has basically been about pushing boundaries of what’s possible when it comes to filmmaking. So yeah, it’d be easy to believe the hype about glasses-free 3D.

Unfortunately, the promise of that particular bit of technology is not anywhere near as definitive as many of those headlines may have led you to believe. The truth is a lot less sexy, and much less headline-friendly.

avatar universe

I learned a long time ago to think twice before doubting James Cameron. When everyone in Hollywood thought he was in the midst of an over-budgeted disaster, Cameron delivered what became the highest grossing movie of all time. The fact that the previous sentence could be referring to either Titanic or Avatar and be equally accurate is absolutely nuts, and while I’ve made my fair share of jokes about the upcoming Avatar sequels never getting off the ground, we now know exactly when Cameron will be diving back into the alien world of Pandora to begin filming.

Plus, each of the sequels are now being described as “stand-alone” stories that connect to form a larger saga. Find out the official Avatar 2 start date below.

Avatar sequels

A former Game of Thrones actress has booked a ticket from Westeros to Pandora. Oona Chaplin, who played Robb Stark’s wife Talisa on the HBO fantasy series, will join Sam Worthington (remember him?), Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Joel David Moore, and Cliff Curtis in James Cameron’s upcoming Avatar sequels. Either that, or this is just the latest development in Cameron’s ongoing, elaborate prank to convince the world that these sequels are really happening, and we’re all being Punk’d like crazy. Those are clearly the only two options here.

Avatar 2 delay

James Cameron isn’t concerned at all about how the sequel to Avatar is going to perform after a 10-year wait. Considering the first film made around $2.7 billion dollars worldwide, which certainly isn’t a gross you hit because of pure luck, he’s probably correct not be worried. Cameron has defied expectations in the past with the best results imaginable, and yet some people still underestimate the director of TitanicTerminator 2: Judgment Day, and Aliens.

Below, learn why Cameron isn’t sweating the Avatar 2 delay.

avatar sequels

Here’s more news to solidify that the Avatar sequels are actually happening: Fear the Walking Dead star Cliff Curtis will be joining all four sequels to the James Cameron sci-fi epic in a lead role.

Curtis’ role will expand the mythology of the Avatar universe by taking the series underwater, which Cameron has hinted at, and which posed many obstacles for the motion-capture technology that Avatar uses.

It’s become a running joke by now: they set a date for Avatar 2 and then, after months (or years!) of nothing, it gets delayed. The sequel to the highest grossing film of all time was originally supposed to arrive in 2014…and then it was pushed back to 2016…and then it was pushed back to 2018. So when writer/director James Cameron revealed that the film wasn’t going to meet that last date, no one even blinked. Of course Avatar 2 wasn’t going to be released next year!

Because it’s going to be released in three years. Production has officially begun on the four sequels to the 2009 original, with the first movie now due out in 2020.
