‘Avatar 2’ To Release in 2017: Work On Fictional Moon, Pandora Complete But Script Not Finished Yet
James Cameron’s “Avatar 2” would release around Christmas time in 2017 as the script is not ready yet. 2009’s “Avatar” was made in 14 years. Would “Avatar 2” get ready in 2 years?
Sadly, “Avatar 2” didn’t hit the theaters on Christmas of 2016. According to Parent Herald, the 61-year-old director, James Cameron has said that they are targeting Christmas of 2017.
“But I don’t consider that to be as important as the fact that when we get all three films done, we drop them a year apart,” Cameron said.

Cameron added: “I call it a meta-narrative that runs across the three movies.”
It has been learnt that the team of the trilogy has been facing many perplexities regarding interconnecting the script of the three movies. As a result, Cameron ended up shifting the release date of “Avatar 2” from 2016 to 2017.
There are high expectations from the second installment no doubt and the movie makers are quite aware of it. The producer of the movie, Jon Landau has said that they don’t want to disappoint the viewers, and want to deliver something that exceeds their expectations.
According to Screen Rant, Cameron is lately engaged in working with four writers to produce a full story for the trilogy. Cameron also wants to bring before the audience a movie that has excellent VFX visual effects and a world they have never witnessed before on big screen.
