Returning characters Jake Sully and Neytiri will appear in the third installment, also it is known that Miles ‘Spider” Socorro played by Jack Champion will also be returning for the next film.
Although the third movie has not been given an official title James Cameron did reply to a report from the BBC that the next movie would be AVATAR: The Seed Bearer stating that the title is “in consideration” but has not been confirmed as of this time.
It’s rumored that an “AVATAR 3” 9-hour director cut will premiere as a limited series on Disney+ after the theatrical release.
There are plans for two more sequels to the AVATAR movie franchise planned, 4 and 5 that at this time have no titles or release dates announced. With the success at the box office of the second film, the odds of the continuing saga of the movies could be just around the corner with the next two chapters possibly beginning production in the coming years.
