Avatar 2’s Christmas 2017 Release May Be Delayed Despite Avatar‘s continued box office dominance, its cultural standing has diminished significantly.

Not surprisingly, part of the problem was that Cameron had planned to shoot Avatars 2, 3 and 4 back-to-back-to-back. "There's a layer of complexity in getting the story to work as a saga across three films that you don't get when you're making a standalone film," Cameron told the Associated Press this week.
