James continued, "Now that doesn't mean I have an extra year to finish the film, because the day we deliver Avatar 2 we'll just start working on finishing Avatar 3".

Cameron also told Schwarzenegger that Avatar 3 principal photography is 95% complete.

James Cameron recently sat down for a chat with Arnold Schwarzenegger at the 2020 Austrian World Summit (via CinemaBlend), and he was asked about his work on the Avatar sequels.

"So where we are right now", Cameron continued. "I'm down in New Zealand shooting". We're shooting the remainder of the live-action. "Jake and Neytiri have a family in this movie, they are forced to leave their home, they go out and explore the different regions of Pandora, including spending quite a bit of time on the water, around the water, in the water".

Avatar 2 is now slated to hit theaters December 2022, while Avatar 3, 4, and 5 are also in the works.

The scheduled release date has been pushed back eight times.

Arnold Schwarzenegger talks to James Cameron about the latest from Avatar. The Terminator director said that they lost about four and a half months of production due to the coronavirus, because of which they have had to add another full year for a release in December of 2022. The movie only recently resumed production after the pandemic shut down the industry in March and had to move its projected premiere date of December 17, 2021.

The much-awaited sequels to blockbuster hit Avatar are nearly complete, according to director James Cameron.

In addition to Worthington and Saldana, the cast will welcome Kate Winslet, Edie Falco, Michelle Yeoh, Brendan Cowell, Vin Diesel, and even Jermaine Clement.

"We're able to shoot, we're able to operate, and we're able to have more or less a normal life here".

Avatar 2 previously had a release date of December 2021.

All of this progress will hopefully mean that we're going to get each Avatar sequel on their now scheduled release dates.
