Release dates revealed and shooting details for James Cameron's Avatar sequels...

We're currently half way through a big movie trilogy that's been shot in New Zealand, as Peter Jackson's The Hobbit saga now has just The Hobbit: There And Back Again to go next year. But the people of New Zealand will be playing host to another trio of films, as it's been confirmed that James Cameron will shoot Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 there.

The three films are to be shot back to back it's been officially confirmed, and the first is going to arrive in cinemas in December 2016. The subsequent further sequels will then land in December 2017 and December 2018.

Production on the films is expected to start next year, and we'd imagine with three films' worth of footage to shoot, it's going to go on for some time. On casting, thus far Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Stephen Lang are confirmed as returnees.
