‘Avatar 2’ News: Filming in the fall, time jump to Jake with a family, new films are ‘worth the wait’

It sounds as though the Avatar sequel(s) will finally begin production. After many delays and rumors, star Sigourney Weaver says the project will roll film later this year.

“We’re starting!” the actress excitedly told The Hollywood Reporter at a screening of The Assignment, held Monday night at New York City’s Whitby Hotel. “We’re starting training, and we’re starting — hmm, I probably can’t say anything. We will be actually shooting it by the fall.”

James Cameron has previously noted that the scripts of all four Avatar films are completed, and stars Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are also set to return alongside Weaver.

Fans may be saddened to learn that Avatar 2 will not be ready next year, now looking at a 2019. That said, the former Alien star praised the new film(s).

“I’m telling you, these scripts are so amazing, I’m not worried about [disappointing fans] at all,” she told THR. “Am I worried about how we’re going to bring them to life? Yes, because they’re so ambitious. They’re so worth it. They’re well worth waiting for. I’m not worried about that at all. We’re trying to get it done as quickly as possible.”

Worthington recently talked to We Got This Covered about Avatar 2, claiming that the new film will have  something that fans have never seen before.

Avatar 2 will take place eight years after the events of the original film adding that his character – Jake Sully already has a family. Worthington also blurted out that Jake will still be like a kid in the sequel albeit that he has been on the planet for quite some time now. On that note, Worthington hinted about the new world that Jake is about to witness in the movie that made him feel as such.

Saldana who played as Neytiri in the first Avatar, spoke with E! News stating that she too is anticipating for the production of Avatar 2 to begin which she revealed to commence in August. Saldana even commended Cameron’s brilliance in filmmaking and being a perfectionist in his craft and advised fans to extend their patience a bit more.

The original 2009 sci-fi blockbuster grossed $2.7 billion at the global box office.
