Special Correspondent | Last Updated : July 5, 2022

For Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 sequels, James Cameron might not be returning at the helm. The director described the franchise as “all-consuming” in a recent conversation with Empire and said he eventually wants to concentrate on other projects.

“I’m working on some other intriguing projects as well. I believe that after a while—I’m not sure if it will be around three or after four—I’ll want to hand the reins over to a director I trust so that I can pursue other interests. Or perhaps not. I’m not sure,” said Cameron.

While he is still enthusiastic about the impending Avatar: The Way Of Water sequel, which occurs more than 10 years after the first movie and will follow the Sully family tale, Cameron has not yet made the choice to step down as director. 

The subjects that are significant to me in both my actual life and my professional life family, sustainability, climate change, and the natural world—are all things I can communicate on this canvas, according to Cameron. “As I moved along, I became more ecstatic. The fourth film is a gem. Actually, I’m hoping I succeed. Yet it is subject to market factors. Three is already recorded, therefore it will be released regardless. Since the final product is one enormous story, I truly hope we can make four and five.

Robert Rodriguez was originally chosen by Cameron to helm Alita: Battle Angel, a movie that admirers of the novel it was based on had hoped Rodriguez would oversee. Cameron stayed on board as executive producer and co-writer despite being too preoccupied with the Avatar movies at the time.

The events of the first Avatar movie take place more than ten years later in Avatar: The Way Of Water. The Sully family—Jake, Neytiri, and their children—are followed, along with the trouble that pursues them, the lengths they take to protect one another, the fights they wage to survive, and the catastrophes they experience.

Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet, Michelle Yeoh, Edie Falco, Stephen Lang, Giovanni Ribisi, Oona Chaplin, and Jermaine Clement are among the notable actors who appear in the sequel.
