Franchise Expands Visual Effects and Post-Production Efforts

The delay in the release dates of Disney’s productions can be attributed to the ongoing WGA strike and production delays. However, in the case of the franchise, the upcoming installments are specifically being postponed to allow for significant expansion and growth in the post-production and visual effects departments.

Jon Landau, one of the producers of Avatar, took to his Twitter handle to confirm the delays and provide insight into the reasons behind them. In his statement, he mentioned that each film is a massive and ambitious project that requires time to achieve the level of quality expected by both filmmakers and audiences. He expressed the team’s dedication and excitement in bringing audiences back to the extraordinary world of Pandora, with the next installment now slated for a December 2025 release.
