Production of Avatar sequels to resume from next week in New Zealand
The production was halted mid-March after a lockdown was announced in the country due to the Covid-19 outbreak
Producer Jon Landau has shared a new update about the production of James Cameron's Avatar sequels. In an Instagram post, he shared a photo from the sets of the film and said the team is all set to return to New Zealand next week to resume filming.
The production was halted mid-March after a lockdown was announced in the country due to the Covid-19 outbreak. "Our Avatar sets are ready and we couldn't be more excited to be headed back to New Zealand next week. Check out the Matador, a high speed forward command vessel and the Picador jetboat. Can't wait to share more," Landau said in his post.
The four sequels of Avatar were scheduled for release on December 17 2021, December 2023, December 2025, and December 2027, respectively. With the recent delay due to the lockdown, it is unclear if these dates will be pushed.
