Plot details are not available yet.

Cameron divided the three scripts between the writing team of Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman and Shane Salerno. Cameron delves further explaining the story process:

“I think we met for seven months and we white boarded out every scene in every film together, and I didn’t assign each writer which film they were going to work on until the last day. I knew if I assigned them their scripts ahead of time, they’d tune out every time we were talking about the other movie.”

Final words

When James Horner was asked about his involvement with the ongoing franchise in April 2015, he stated that he would stay with it through its entire run “If I last that long”. Tragically, James Horner died unexpectedly in a plane crash that June.

Horner worked exclusively on Avatar for over two years. He said,

 “Avatar has been the most difficult film I have worked on, and the biggest job I have undertaken… I work from four in the morning to about ten at night, and that’s been my way of life since March. That’s the world I’m in now, and it makes you feel estranged from everything. I’ll have to recover from that and get my head out of.”

In July Disney announced that it had moved the Avatar sequels back a year with “Avatar 2” set for Dec. 16, 2022; “Avatar 3” slated for Dec. 20, 2024; “Avatar 4” to debut on Dec. 18, 2026; and “Avatar 5” on Dec. 22, 2028.
