James Cameron’s upcoming sequel to ‘Avatar’ was one of the few films that had to pause because of the pandemic. Now, as restrictions ease and film shooting has begun James Cameron is back in business.

In July, James Cameron released a statement, which said that the unexpected delay in starting the production due to COVID-19 has forced them to push the release of the first sequel. ‘Avatar 2’ was originally scheduled to hit screens in December 2021.
The film has now been slated to release in December 2022. This means that the subsequent sequels have also been pushed back by a year.
