James Cameron agrees release dates for Avatar 2 and 3

James Cameron is officially returning to Pandora for two Avatar sequels.

We can join him in December 2014 and December 2015 for Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 . We imagine those titles will be subject to change.

Cameron said: "In the second and third films, which will be self-contained stories that also fulfil a greater story arc, we will not back off the throttle of Avatar's visual and emotional horsepower, and will continue to explore its themes and characters, which touched the hearts of audiences in all cultures around the world.

"I'm looking forward to returning to Pandora, a world where our imaginations can run wild."

It means that Avatards face an agonising five-year wait until the story of Jake Sully and his blue mates is fully resolved.

But seeing as the first one took 15 years to reach screens, a five year wait for two is cheap at half the price.
