‘Avatar’ will have several sequels in the coming years. The filming of the second and third installments of the franchise led by James Cameron has already finished, but it has already been confirmed that there will be at least two more films. Rumors suggest that Vin Diesel will be part of the franchise, something he seems to have confirmed in a recent interview.
In an interview with MTV News, Josh Horowitz asked the actor if he would be in James Cameron’s Avatar saga. “I’ve spent time with him but haven’t recorded anything yet,” he replied.
“So Vin Diesel will be in the ‘Avatar’ sequels?” Horowitz insisted. “I love James Cameron. I adore James Cameron and I love the saga and I can safely say that we will work together“, answered.
Avatar 2 will feature the return of Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Giovanni Ribisi, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, CCH Pounder and Matt Gerald. The cast has new names including Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Brendan Cowell, Michelle Yeoh, Jemaine Clement, Oona Chaplin, David Thewlis, and CJ Jones.
“The sequel story follows Jake and Neytiri and their children. It’s a family saga about fighting humans,” Cameron told Variety about the franchise’s plot.
Diesel recently released ‘Fast & Furious 9’. He will soon premiere ‘Muscle’, in addition to voicing ‘Groot’ in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’.
The second installment will hit theaters on December 16, 2022; the third will premiere on December 20, 2024; ‘Avatar 4’ will be released on December 18, 2026; and ‘Avatar 5’ will land in theaters on December 22, 2028.
