Avatar

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.

Terminator Genisys sequel

The Terminator reboots are zero for two. This series (creatively) stalled about 14 years ago with Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, which is a mostly forgettable action movie with one fine chase scene and a refreshingly bleak ending. The next two attempts at reviving the franchise, Terminator: Salvation and Terminator: Genisys, failed to generate much excitement among fans and audiences. Of course, we’ve already caught wind of another reboot, but the news that the sequel to Genisys is finally has arrived.

Let’s look at what we know about the canceled Terminator sequel and what’s going on with the next reboot.

Avatar 2 Release Date

It’s been over seven years since James Cameron brought Avatar into theaters and it became the highest grossing movie of all time. Since then, the loyal group of fans have been waiting for the director to follow it up with his promised sequels. The number of sequels that James Cameron has promised grew to four last year with an announcement at CinemaCon, and since then we’ve expected them to arrive starting in 2018. But guess what? That’s not gonna happen.

Universal Studio’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter didn’t just transport you to J.K. Rowling’s fantasy world – it transported you to a specific point in the Harry Potter canon, with the events of the attractions taking place at a specific point in the series. Not to be outdone, Walt Disney World’s Pandora: The World of Avatar isn’t just an extension of James Cameron‘s film (and soon to be film series). The entire experience is a sequel in its own right, sliding right into the series’ timeline.

This revelation arrived as Disney started opening the gates to the new theme park land (located in their Animal Kingdom theme park) to a few media outlets. This resulted in a bunch of new footage from the themed area, including a look at the new rides, arriving online.
