Final ‘Avatar’ Films
Final ‘Avatar’ Films: The director said the movies are “all-consuming,” and he has other projects in the works that he’s excited about.
James Cameron may have created the planet of Pandora, but there’s a chance the filmmaker does not direct all of the Avatar films.
After the franchise’s game-changing first film, Cameron decided to continue the saga with four more stories, the first of which, Avatar: The Way of Water, hits theaters on Dec. 16, 2022. The third installment hasn’t been announced, but it’s slated to be released in December 2024, since it was filmed back-to-back with Avatar 2.
James Cameron says he may not direct the final ‘Avatar films
The fourth and fifth movies haven’t gone into production yet, but when they do, Cameron says he might not be at the helm.
“The Avatar films themselves are kind of all-consuming,” Cameron said in an interview with Empire magazine, adding that there are some other projects he’s developing that he’s excited about.
“I think eventually over time – I don’t know if that’s after three or after four — I’ll want to pass the baton to a director that I trust to take over, so I can go do some other stuff that I’m also interested in,” he continued. “Or maybe not. I don’t know.”

Despite being uncertain about whether or not he’ll direct the rest of the Avatar franchise, Cameron is looking forward to seeing the storylines play out.
“Everything I need to say about family, about sustainability, about climate, about the natural world, the themes that are important to me in real life and my cinematic life, I can say on this canvas,” he said, sharing that he gets more excited with every new film in the saga.
“Movie four is a corker. It’s a motherfucker,” he said. “I hope I get to make it. But it depends on market forces. Three is in the can so it’s coming out regardless. I hope that we get to make four and five because it’s one big story, ultimately.”
James Cameron on Why He May Not Direct Final ‘Avatar’ Films
James Cameron has revealed he might not direct the fourth and fifth Avatar films.
Following the original film in 2009, four sequels have been announced to continue the story of Pandora. The first, Avatar: The Way Of Water, is set to be released in December, while the untitled third film, shot back-to-back with the sequel, is set to follow in 2024.
Speaking to Empire, Cameron said: “The Avatar films themselves are kind of all-consuming. I’ve got some other things I’m developing as well that are super exciting.
“I think eventually over time – I don’t know if that’s after three or after four – I’ll want to pass the baton to a director that I trust to take over, so I can go do some other stuff that I’m also interested in. Or maybe not, I don’t know.”
James Cameron may skip directing the final Avatar movies
The director, however, is excited about the story in the later films. “Everything I need to say about family, about sustainability, about climate, about the natural world, the themes that are important to me in real life and my cinematic life, I can say on this canvas,” he added.
“I got more excited as I went along. Movie four is a corker. It’s a motherfucker. I hope I get to make it. But it depends on market forces. Three is in the can so it’s coming out regardless. I hope that we get to make four and five because it’s one big story, ultimately.”
