Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron has begun production for four consecutive sequels for his science fiction film Avatar (2009), reported Deadline.

Starring Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, and Sigourney Weaver, the Academy Award-winning 3D production explores the fictitious habitable moon Pandora and the conflict between its local inhabitants, the Na’vi, and Earth. The budget is estimated to be over a billion dollars, which is $650-700 million more than the budget of The Hobbit installments, reported Forbes.

The first Avatar sequel will be released on December 18, 2020, and the next one, a year later. The last two films are scheduled for December 2024 and 2025.
