So what's the latest with the Avatar? Back in August, it was announced that there would be three sequels to hit film. Screenwriters were also announced. Josh Friedman would write Avatar 2, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver would write Avatar 3, and Shane Salerno would write Avatar 4. Production is scheduled for 2014 with the first film to be released in December 2016, the second in December 2017 and the third in 2018.
In terms of story, the first sequel will pick up after the events of the first film, when Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) permanently transfers his consciousness to his Na'vi avatar and begins a new life with Princess Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) after they defeat the human colonizers.
