Pandora is soon coming to a screen near you.

Oscar-winning director, James Cameron, has now confirmed that the first and second sequels to Avatar have wrapped principal photography for over a year.

The original film became the highest-grossing of all time around the world, taking over $2,7 billion at the global box office.

In a video message, the 64-year-old revealed that Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, which have been shooting simultaneously since September 2017, have completed production.

“Hi, James Cameron here and today I’m coming to you from the set of the Avatar sequels — and behind me you can see our performance-capture stage. Today we’re capturing some stunt scenes filming some stunt scenes but our principal cast are all wrapped: Sam [Worthington], Zoe [Saldana], Sigourney [Weaver], Stephen Lang, Kate Winslet. They’re done now but they gave us incredible performances. And I can’t tell you how proud I am of the work that they did on these films.”

Avatar 2 is due in theatres on December 18, 2020, and will be followed by Avatar 3 on December 17, 2021, with a further 2 sequels planned.
