‘Avatar 2’ Director James Cameron says movie success may lead to 3 more movies

James Cameron, the director of “Avatar: The Way of Water,” said that the film is enjoying box office success, after becoming the biggest 2022 release at the worldwide box office with $1.5 billion, and will likely lead to multiple more movies.

The film is currently the No. 9 movie of all time, while the original “Avatar” is the No. 1 movie ever.

Cameron says it’s success is enough to for them to continue planning their third, fourth, and fifth installments of the franchise. The sequels are set to be in 2024, 2026, and 2028.

“It looks like just with the momentum that the film has now that will easily pass our break even in the next few days, so it looks like I can’t wiggle out of this,” Cameron said on HBO Max’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?”

“I’m gonna have to do these other sequels,” Cameron said, adding: “I know what I’m going to be doing the next six or seven years. The point is we’re going to be okay.”

Cameron has already turned in his scripts for the upcoming films. While the studio was critical of Avatar 2 and 3, he said Avatar 4 was the only one to not receive any studio notes.

“I can’t tell you the details, but all I can say is that when I turned in the script for [‘The Way of Water’], the studio gave me three pages of notes,” Cameron told Collider. “And when I turned in the script for 3, they gave me a page of notes, so I was getting better.”

“When I turned in the script for 4, the studio executive, the creative executive over the films, wrote me an email that said, ‘Holy f**k.’ And I said, ‘Well, where are the notes?’ And she said, ‘Those are the notes.’ Because it kind of goes nuts in a good way, right?”
