James Cameron announces 4 Avatar sequels

At 20th Century Fox’s CinemaCon presentation on Thursday, director James Cameron announced that there  will be 4 sequels to 2009’s Avatar.

“We’ve begun to bump up against the limitations of our art form,” said Cameron, “there’s just too much story.”

Although they are subject to change, Cameron reeled off some expected dates for the films: Avatar 2 in Christmas 2018; Avatar 3 in Christmas 2020; Avatar 4 in Christmas 2022; and Avatar 5 in Christmas 2023.

“Each one of which stands alone,” Cameron promised, “but which together form a complete saga.”

Although Avatar still stands as the highest grossing film in the world, it has been relatively forgotten about in the annals of motion picture history.

Here’s hoping Cameron can craft something more memorable. He does have four more chances, after all.
