Tapos nang i-shoot ang “Avatar 2,” habang malapit na ring makumpleto ang “Avatar 3”.
Nilantad ito ni direk James Cameron sa video chat kay dating California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger para sa 2020 Austrian World Summit.
Sinabi rin ng direktor na naghahanda na sila sa bagong release dates sa mga nasabing pelikula, matapos maapektuhan ng coronavirus pandemic.
“Covid hit us like it hit everybody. We lost about four and a half months of production. As a result of that, we’ve rolled around one more full year for a release in December of 2022. That’s been announced already,” wika ni Cameron.
“Now that doesn’t mean I have an extra year to finish the film because the day we deliver ‘Avatar 2,’ we’ll just start working on finishing ‘Avatar 3.’ So where we are right now, I’m down in New Zealand shooting, we’re shooting the remainder of the live-action.”
“We’ve got about 10 percent left to go. We’re 100 percent complete on ‘Avatar 2’ and we’re sort of 95 percent complete with ‘Avatar 3’,” aniya pa.
Masuwerte aniya sila dahil napili nilang mag-shoot sa New Zealand, kung saan may epektibong COVID-19 response.
“We’re very lucky in that we chose this as our production site years ago. We made the first film here in New Zealand and it turns out to be ranking first or second-best country in the world for its Covid response,” sabi pa ng direktor kay Schwarzenegger.
Samantala, pinaplano rin daw ang pagpapalabas ng “Avatar 4” at “Avatar 5.”
