James Cameron, the famed 69-year-old director, is gearing up for a busy post-production phase for the next installment in the 'Avatar' franchise. In a recent interview with New Zealand's 1News, reported by Deadline, Cameron revealed the much-anticipated release date for 'Avatar 3', stating, “We are going into a very intensive two-year post-production, so it's going to be Christmas 2025.”

Originally scheduled for a 2024 release, the third 'Avatar' film faced delays due to the Hollywood strike, pushing its premiere to 2025. Cameron, known for his dedication to the craft, seems unphased by the delay, expressing his willingness to spend the rest of his days working on the 'Avatar' series, which is planned for three more films.

During the interview, Cameron also shared his plans to become a New Zealand citizen, a decision influenced by his extensive time spent in Wellington for his film productions.

The move to New Zealand marks a significant step in the director's personal and professional life, reflecting his deep connection with the country.

'Avatar 3', whose official title is yet to be announced, was filmed concurrently with 'Avatar: The Way of Water'. To maintain continuity and avoid aging discrepancies with the younger cast members, the first act of the fourth film in the series has already been shot.

This strategic approach was taken to ensure that the young actors could convincingly portray their roles over the span of the series.

Cameron's efforts are likely to pay off, as 'Avatar: The Way of Water' became the third highest-grossing film worldwide upon its release last year. Fans of the franchise eagerly anticipate the continuation of the groundbreaking saga that Cameron has masterfully created.
