Cameron said past year that he had first envisioned two sequels but after meeting with the screenwriters, artists and designers, he realized that he had too much material for just two films.
The film has netted over $2.7 billion. The last three films in the series were scheduled for 2020, 2022 and 2023 releases, so everything has been pushed back.
The dates were announced on Saturday morning via a Facebook post that included a photo of Cameron with the \/span Avatar \/i crew in front of the recently revealed new franchise logo.

That announcement came immediately after the director told theater owners he opposed the proposal by Sean Parker's upstart Screening Room, to bring movies into customers' homes at the same time they debut in theaters. So for fans who have waited all this time for a new Avatar movie, you now have a little over two-and-a-half years until the next one.
Confirmed to feature the return of cast members Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver, the Avatar sequels will be produced by Cameron and Jon Landau through their Lightstorm Entertainment. This is my day job and pretty soon we'll be 24/7. The sequels are written by Cameron along with Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman, and Shane Salerno, which Cameron will direct.More news: Arsenal Defender Laurent Koscielny Pleased With Important Win Over Middlesbrough
