Avatar 2’s release date is being delayed and it could be because of Star Wars.
The follow-up to the 2009 blockbuster was supposed to be ready by Christmas 2017.
However, according to several reports, Avatar 2 filming hasn’t even started.
This comes just after Disney announced the sequel to The Force Awakens was being delayed and would be coming out at the same time as Avatar 2 was due for release.
Avatar and Star Wars already have a good rivalry going.
However, Avatar remains the highest-grossing movie around the world, for now at least.
Avatar introduced the world to 3D as a realistic cinema experience.
Last month, director James Cameron said work on the follow-up trilogy was nearly complete.
James Cameron told Entertainment Weekly: “We’ve been designing for about a year and a half. All the characters, settings and creatures are all pretty much done.”
The idea is to film them all at once.
So far, Twentieth Century Fox hasn’t explained what’s happened.
It’s likely Disney must have known about the delay – otherwise it probably wouldn’t have shifted the Star Wars release date back.
