Disney Delays Avatar, new date for Star Wars, shifts Marvel; Know all info
The House of Mouse has announced a series of delays in its releases and now James Cameron’s Avatar will conclude its story in theaters in 2031. Disney has announced several major delays. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has moved up virtually every release date for its most notable projects, including the Fantastic Four reboot, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, Avengers: Secret Wars, and even Deadpool 3, Blade, or Thunderbolts.
The UCM calendar, however, has not been the only one that has been touched, because the sequels to Avatar have also moved their respective release dates marking as an endpoint, in theory, the year 2031 to say goodbye to the adventures of Jake Sully and his family on Pandora. Originally, the saga had to release its next film, Avatar 3: The Seed Bearer, on December 20, 2024, but probably due to the writers’ strike, the next reunion with Cameron’s blue characters will be on December 19, 2025.
Disney moves the date of all the Avatar movies, upsetting the release plans of James Cameron.
What are the new dates?
Next, we are going to leave you with the dates that have been modified with the rest of the pending Avatar sequels:
- Avatar 3: The Seed Bearer moves from December 20, 2024 to December 19, 2025.
- Avatar 4: The Tulkun Rider moves from December 18, 2026, to December 21, 2029.
- Avatar 5: The Quest for Eywa moves from December 22, 2028, to December 19, 2031.
In principle, the third Avatar film would already be considering a cut of up to nine hours of editing, and the fourth film would have recorded sequences. As for the fifth, there are only parts of the script elaborated, which confirm that there will be a trip to Earth by the Na’vi showing that there can also be good humans.
“We will also explore new universes continuing the story of the main characters. The 68-year-old says that the last parts will be the best. The others have been an introduction, a way of setting the table before serving food. But obviously, everything will depend on the reception of Avatar 2 if it finds its audience,” Cameron said after the success of Avatar: The Sense of Water.
