Avatar 2 theatrical release postponed again


     The takeover of 21th Century Fox by Disney also shifts some of the planned start dates. Now the company announced new dates for the Star Wars and Avatar films.
    After Avatar – Aufbruch After Pandora 2009 was a huge success, it was quickly clear that the film would get at least one sequel. Meanwhile, the film has grossed over $ 2.78 billion and has long ranked # 1 on the list of the most successful films ever made. While the recently released Avengers: Endgame puts pressure on it, that does not change the incredible success that Avatar 2009 had. Already in 2006 Avatar was announced by director James Cameron as a trilogy. Since 2016 it is known that it is four sequels. The dates for the Pentalogie have been known for some time, but with the acquisition of Fox by Disney, these have now been postponed.
    Through the acquisition of the studio, Disney not only owns the company Fox, but also all licenses and rights to films and franchises. One of Fox's biggest projects is the Avatar series. This would like to show Disney alternately with the next Star Wars trilogy. So the Christmas dates are booked out the next years for Avatar and Star Wars films. It starts with Avatar 2 on December 17, 2021, followed by Star Wars 10 on December 16, 2022. It continues in December 2023 with Avatar 3, in December 2024 with Star Wars 11 and in December 2025 with Avatar 4. The last two Movies will be Star Wars 12 in December 2026 and Avatar 5 in December 2027. Disney has now presented a proper plan that will dominate the cinema business for Christmas until 2027.
    The announcement of the new dates should make some avatar fans sad. After all, Avatar 2 was already planned for 2020 and can now wait another year longer. Star Wars fans, on the other hand, are pleased with the first specific information about the new trilogy. It is not yet known which of the two trilogies is being worked on. At the moment, Game Of Thrones makers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss as well as Rian Johnson are working on their own trilogy.
    If you are a fan of Star Wars and Avatar, you have pulled the big ticket. The next few years should therefore be secured the pre-Christmas cinema.
