The first ‘Avatar’ sequel, subtitled ‘The Way of Water’, is set to hit theatres on December 16. A third film in the ‘Avatar’ series was shot back-to-back with ‘The Way of the Water’ and is eyeing a release in 2024.

James Cameron told ‘Empire’ magazine, as quoted by ‘Variety’: “The ‘Avatar’ films themselves are kind of all-consuming. I’ve got some other things I’m developing as well that are exciting.”

“I think eventually over time — I don’t know if that’s after three or after four — I’ll want to pass the baton to a director that I trust to take over, so I can go do some other stuff that I’m also interested in. Or maybe not. I don’t know.”

Even so, James Cameron expressed excitement about the potential to watch his grand plan for the ‘Avatar’ saga come to fruition.

“Movie four is a corker. It’s a mo**********. I hope I get to make it. But it depends on market forces. Three is in the can so it’s coming out regardless. I really hope that we get to make four and five because it’s one big story, ultimately.”

James Cameron has stepped away from the director’s chair for projects that he has poured years into, starting with 2019’s ‘Alita: Battle Angel’, which was ultimately helmed by Robert Rodriguez, although he stayed attached to the production as an executive producer and co-writer.
