Avatar 2 filming updates 20th Century Fox

Looks like the release date for the much-awaited sequel of James Cameron's Avatar is finally revealed.

Avatar 2 will reportedly hit cinemas worldwide during Christmas 2017. While the studio has not officially announced the release date, 20th Century Fox CEO Jim Gianopulos believes that a Christmas release is just the perfect window that they're looking at for Avatar 2, reports Master Herald.

The website report further adds that the studio may finalise 25 December 2017 as the release date for the film. "...It is likely that the next two sequels, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 will also get the same exact dates on 2018 and 2019," the report claims.

Meanwhile, scripts for all the three sequels are reportedly complete and pre-production is on in full swing. Cameron has shared that the production team and specialists are now designing creatures, settings, and characters that are part of all three films.

Cameron, who's known to use path-breaking technology for his films, is all set to dive into a whole new world of special effects for his Avatar movies.

As per earlier reported, the main reason why the release date of Avatar 2 was pushed back by a year is because the director wanted to develop a technology to film motion-capture scenes underwater which confirms speculations that the movie would see Jake Sully and his tribe in deep underwater action as the characters explore the oceans of Pandora.
