Does James Cameron’s Avatar sequel have a chance to reclaim the box office crown from Marvel’s almighty Avengers: Endgame? Maybe, but we’re going to have to wait a lot longer to find out. Thanks to COVID-19, Disney has decided to delay the long-gestating film and its two sequels – Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 (talk about franchise confidence!) – for an entire year. We’re not sure how to say “bummer” in Na’vi, but that’s probably what most Avatar fans are thinking right now.

Additionally, Disney is pushing back the upcoming Star Wars trilogy movies for a year, too. “The untitled Star Wars trilogy movies as follows with the first film, reportedly under Taika Waititi’s guidance, going from Dec. 16, 2022 to Dec. 22, 2023; the second movie moving from Dec. 20, 2024 to Dec. 19, 2025, and the third movie heading from Dec. 18, 2026 to Dec. 17, 2027,” reported Deadline.
Delays normally aren’t celebrated, but we may have to make an exception here. Does the world really need a new Star Wars trilogy already, considering what happened with the sequels?
