‘Avatar’ Sequels Set to Resume Production in New Zealand

Covid 19 coronavirus: Avatar sequels to resume New Zealand production next week

Oscar-winning Titanic producer Jon Landau has revealed the Avatar sequels will resume production next week in New Zealand.

Film and TV production came to halt around the globe in mid-March but is slowly returning in some countries including New Zealand, where the "Avatar" sequel is being filmed.

Sharing a picture from the set of the movie on Instagram, Landau said the sets were ready and the team behind the film was excited to head back.

He shared a photo of one of the sets from the movie: "Check out the Matador, a high speed forward command vessel (bottom) and the Picador jetboat (top) - can't wait to share more".

The sea vessels look massive and intimidating, and will likely be the ships used by the humans to traverse the mostly water-covered world that Avatar 2 will be exploring.

Sequel What to expect from "Avatar 2"?

"I want to get back to work on Avatar, which right now we're not allowed to do under state emergency laws or rules". This is a huge plus for any Hollywood productions, such as Avatar 2, shooting over there as USA productions have largely been shut down around the world for some time. "So it's all on hold right now".

"So there's a very good chance that our shoot might be delayed a couple of months, but we can still do it".

Well, it ain't great for anyone, James. It had previously been reported that Cameron planned to complete the "Avatar' sequel by the end of 2020 while charting out the release dates of follow-ups set to release every two years".

Released in 2009, James Cameron's sci-fi epic "Avatar" revolutionized movie grossing a then-record $2.79 billion at the worldwide box office (the record was of course broken in 2019 by Avengers: Endgame).
