Originally, the follow-up films Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 were announced for mid-December 2014 and 2015. After that, the second part was postponed to 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2020, 2021 and now it should only be released in 2022, as a kickoff of a total of four Avatarfollow-up films.For a long time, director James Cameron was the cause of everything. He worked continuously on the script and demanded a lot of the technical capabilities. Meanwhile, procrastination is likely more due to causes outside of the director’s direction. Previously it was Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox and now it’s the corona crisis.
