APPARENTLY, James Cameron’s sequel to Avatar was set to begin filming in New Zealand in April, but that’s the first we’ve heard of it.
The country is enforcing stricter rules to contain the coronavirus spread and in doing so has had to halt production.
Jon Landau, producer of the film has confirmed to the New Zealand Herald that there would be significant delays for a whole block of filming that was scheduled at Stone Street Studios.
However Weta Digital will go ahead with special effects work to the price of $1.64 BILLION AUD.
THAT IS SO MUCH MONEY.
THIS MOVIE IS GOING TO BE INSANE.
Weta Digital has an impressive filmography with the likes of Avengers: End Game & Infinity War, Umbrella Academy, Game of Thrones, Alita: Battle Angel and much more!
But wait there’s more….
There’s not just 1 sequel….not just 2…NOT 3….BUT 4.
They’re currently working on 4 films at once, and will be releasing Avatar 2 in Dec 2021, Avatar 3 in Dec 2023, Avatar 4 in Dec 2025 and Avatar 5 in Dec 2027.
And you know what, I don’t want it???
What the hell guys… y’all ain’t Marvel what is this shit?
