The long wait for more Avatar films will go on a little longer.
The Walt Disney Co. on Tuesday laid out its plans for upcoming 20th Century Fox films. James Cameron’s long-delayed Avatar 2 will now open in theatres in December 2021 instead of its most recent date of December 2020. The two subsequent Avatar sequels will move to 2023 and 2025, respectively.
Disney said its next batch of Star Wars films will begin arriving in theatres in 2022, and then in 2024 and 2026.
A number of other Fox films were delayed. Ad Astra, with Brad Pitt, has been pushed to September, while The New Mutants was pushed from this summer to April next year.
Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story is slated to open in December of next year.
