“Avatar 3”: filming and release date

According to our colleagues from TF1 Info, the filming of “Avatar 3” has already ended . For its part, Disney has announced the release date of the film. Thus, the third part of the 'Avatar' saga will land in France on December 18, 2024 and December 20, 2024 in the USA.

You are probably wondering how is this possible. In fact, the filming of “Avatar 3” took place while the second part was in production. Shooting took place between September 2017 and December 2020 .

As with its predecessor, 'Avatar 3' was shot between studios in Los Angeles and landscapes of New Zealand. Recently, in an interview with 20 minutes, James Cameron also talked about the plot of his film .

We learn for example that 'Avatar 3' will be a direct sequel to “Avatar: The Way of Water” . In this third opus, we will find “ash people”. For information, it's about the nasty Na'vis .

“In the early films, there are very negative human examples and very positive Na'vi examples. In Avatar 3, we will do the opposite, ”revealed the director in his interview with 20 minutes.

The same cast for “Avatar 3”?

Like 'Avatar 3' is the direct sequel to the second part , we will obviously find familiar faces. Especially the heroes of “Avatar 2”. This does not mean, however, that there will be no new faces .

There will be at least three, namely:

  • David Thewlis (Remus Lupin in 'Harry Potter')
  • Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All At Once)
  • Oona Chaplin (Charlie Chaplin's granddaughter, who plays in the series 'Traitor on Netflix')

Incidentally, actor David Thewlis set to appear in the fourth and fifth installments of “Avatar” . Indeed, the latter are in production and should be released around Christmas 2026 and Christmas 2028 .

Will 'Avatar 3' last 9 hours?

Lately the noises ran like what the movie 'Avatar 3' will last 9 hours. Is this really the case? You should know that it is the journalist and film critic Jeff Sneider who is the source of this rumor .

“Cameron wrapped up a nine-hour edit of Avatar 3 last week,” the reporter revealed on his “The Hot Mic Podcast” podcast.

This before adding:

“He now insists that all the visual effects be done before he gets to editing. The nine hours in the box will therefore be completely finalized before he removes scenes. »

Thus, 'Avatar 3' won't last 9 hours when released . Once finalized, the film will probably last like its predecessors, around 3 hours.
