During initial interviews on the film in 2012, Cameron commented that it may be a prequel rather than a sequel. However; all interviews since then have referred to it as a sequel; the prequel is likely a separate project. Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana have signed for a further three films. In October 2013, Sam Worthington confirmed that the three sequels would be shot back to back starting in fall 2014.

Writing and delays

Shane Salerno was announced as the film's screenwriter in August 2013. Scriptwriting continued up through at least May 2015. According to an interview with James Horner, who was then tapped for the soundtrack, Cameron had inadvertently written four sequels' worth of material by that point, which needed whittling down to three. However, a fourth sequel was announced in 2017, with the release dates for the movies continuing to be delayed.

On July 31, 2017, it was announced that the New Zealand-based visual effects studio Weta Digital had commenced work on the Avatar sequels.[1]
