‘Avatar’ Sequel: First Photos of New Cast Members Unveiled

20th Century Fox has revealed the newest cast members and images for the Avatar sequel, following Monday’s start of production in Manhattan Beach, Calif.

Members of the Sully family include Jamie Flatters, Britain Dalton, and Trinity Bliss. New cast members for the Metkayina clan include Bailey Bass, Filip Geljo and Duane Evans Jr. Jack Champion will portray Javier “Spider” Socorro, a human teenager born at Hell’s Gate. But he prefers his time in the rainforest of Pandora more than the asphalt of Hell’s Gate.

The four sequels will hit theaters starting on Dec. 18, 2020 for “Avatar 2.” “Avatar 3” will open on Dec. 17, 2021, followed by a three-year break for “Avatar 4,” set for Dec. 20, 2024. “Avatar 5” will then debut on Dec. 19, 2025.

James Cameron announced at CinemaCon in 2016 that he would make four sequels to “Avatar,” promising that the films would start hitting theaters in 2018. The creator of the original “Avatar” — the 2009 fantasy epic that remains the all-time worldwide box office champion with $2.8 billion — said at the time that his vision for the story had expanded significantly.

Cameron said last 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. He initially decided on three sequels, then jumped to four.

Cameron and Jon Landau are producing through their Lightstorm Entertainment company. The returning stars include Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, CCH Pounder, and Stephen Lang, with “Game of Thrones” star Oona Chaplin recently joining the cast in an unspecified role.

The script was written by Cameron with Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, and Shane Salerno.
