The movie Avatar once was the most successful movie of all time. And even now, more than 10 years after it hit the movie theatres, it still holds second place – only bested by Avengers: Endgame. Yesterday, producer and director James Cameron revealed the first concept art for Avatar 2. And it looks fantastic.
The sequel was supposed to be shown on the big screen back in 2014, but then Cameron decided to create four sequels instead of just one and postponed everything. The project disappeared from the public eye for a few years before the first details started to trickle in late 2017. Cameron teased the world numerous times with photos of the film sets and other tidbits. And just yesterday, he tweeted this:
Avatar 2 concept art
Apart from the Avatar 2 concept art, which we put in a gallery for you below, the interesting part in the tweet is that Avatar 2 seems to be taking place not just on the moon Pandora, but other parts of the world.
Those are some beautiful images. What’s interesting is the change of scenery from the lush green vegetation of Pandora and its skies towards a world focusing on water. We can see floating rocks, several moons in the sky, and scenes overlooking the ocean and other water bodies. The predominant colors being blue and turquoise.

Avatar 3, Avatar 4 and Avatar 5
As mentioned above, Cameron and his team around Sam Worthington, Kate Winslet, and Zoe Saldana are working on not just one, but a total of four sequels. Part 2 and 3 are done deals with release dates set to December 15th, 2021 and December 20th, 2023, respectively.
Avatar 4 and 5 also have release dates (December 2025 and 2027). Whether these two parts will get the green light from Disney, though, remains to be seen.
What do you think of the Avatar 2 concept art? Are you excited about the sequel? Let us know in the comments below. Personally, I am not so sure the original Avatar actually needed a sequel. What has me excited though is the Avatar game, which – unfortunately – still has no release date. We’ll keep you posted.
