Now, James Cameron told for The New York Times who is concerned about the time that has passed between the first tape of “Avatar” and the sequel, which will be released in a few months:
“I think I could have made a sequel two years later and blow it up because people didn’t relate to the characters or the direction of the movie. My personal experience is like this: I made a sequel called Aliens, seven years after the first movie. It was very well received. I made a sequel called Terminator 2 seven years after the first movie. It made an order of magnitude more in revenue than the first movie. Right up until we released the trailer, and we got 148 million views in 24 hours. There’s a barely-seen-but-wondered beginning, which is: Wow, we haven’t seen that in a long time, but I remember how cool it is. That’s when we thought: Does that play in our favor? I do not know. I guess we’re going to find out.”
It should be remembered that Disney has budgeted brand new Avatar 2 the December 16, 2022, Avatar 3 the December 20, 2024, avatar 4 the December 18, 2026 and finally, the fifth and final film in the saga would hit theaters on December 22, 2028all being the budgeted dates of its premiere in USA. The first Avatar film achieved an incredible gross of 2.78 billion dollars and by 10 years remained as the highest grossing film in history, until in 2019 was overtaken by “Avengers Endgame” which made 2.8 billion dollars worldwide.
