New Set Photos Send Soldiers Into Battle
Due to New Zealand’s containment of coronavirus, James Cameron has been able to press full steam ahead on his Avatar sequels.
In fact, the director has revealed he’s almost done filming not just Avatar 2, but Avatar 3 is almost completed too.
At this weeks Austrian World Summit, Cameron sat down with his Terminator pal, Arnold Schwarzenegger and said –
“The day we deliver ‘Avatar 2,’ we’ll just start working on finishing ‘Avatar 3,’”
“So where we are right now, I’m down in New Zealand shooting. We’re shooting the remainder of the live-action. We’ve got about 10% left to go. We’re 100% complete on Avatar 2, and we’re sort of 95% complete on Avatar 3.”
Cameron and his team have divulged little about what the Avatar saga will bring, though it is known that the film will explore new areas of Pandora and that it will be set many years after the first film with a new generation of both Na’vi and humans.
New Avatar 2 set photos were posted to producer Jon Landau‘s social media accounts –
