It’s been almost a decade since the first Avatar hit theaters and James Cameron is finally getting his ass into gear with his sequels.
Omega Underground previously reported that Avatar 2 would begin lensing on August 15th, despite cast members suggesting a fall shoot (when certain actors begin filming can differ from the start date). A second production source has reaffirmed that August start date along with adding that it’s expected the film will wrap on December 15th.
We were unable to confirm if the production would head back to New Zealand (where the first one shot) as the only location mentioned here is Manhattan Beach, California.
Currently, the cast members are Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, and Joel David Moore.
With Cameron expected to keep filming the multiple sequels past the wrap date, we’ll likely learn the production schedules of the other films very soon.
Avatar 2 has the release date of December 18th, 2020.
