James Cameron's Avatar 2 delayed again; Won't open in 2017 as planned

Avatar 2 James Cameron Sam Worthington Zoe Saldana Sigourney Weaver

Last month, James Cameron said he was targeting a Christmas 2017 release for his first of three planned AVATAR sequels, but now The Wrap has heard it won't be ready in time for next year's holiday season, and has been delayed once again. Fox declined to comment on the delay, although it has been confirmed by individuals with knowledge of the situation. An updated release date hasn't been announced yet.

While the studio never officially set the follow-up to hit theaters Christmas 2017, the delay may have something to do with STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII's new release date. However, Cameron is also a bit of a perfectionist, and it's obvious that he doesn't want to rush the sequels.

The plan is to shoot all three films at the same time, but there's still no official word on when filming is expected to kick off, and you know there's also going be a lengthy post-production process. With that being said, when do you think is the earliest AVATAR 2 will open?
