'Avatar 2' movie news; release date moved to 2017

The highly anticipated sequel to the hit CGI movie "Avatar" will hit theaters in December of 2017, so there will be a very long wait. But the film is already generating buzz right now with speculations and rumors.

The film will still be directed by James Cameron, and some earlier rumors stated that the film will hit theaters next year but it has been confirmed that it is not so. The release date has been pushed back because Cameron would like to experiment further with some advanced technology.

Actress Sigourney Weaver will still be a part of the movie, but she will have a different character as her original character died in the first film. Actor Sam Worthington and actress Zoe Saldana will reprise their roles in the sequel.

Cameron and his crew are working on the subsequent films "Avatar 3" and "Avatar 4" simultaneously. It has been reported that the upcoming film will take place in the ocean of Pandora. It has also been reported that he wants to create some more rich new worlds and cultures through the use of ultra-high definition frames. He also wants to create technology that will allow cameras to capture motion sequences underwater.

Cameron will be creating a new ocean system to his fictional world of Pandora and it is the very intricate details that have been causing the delay. But he did also say that using improved computer graphic tools can accelerate the process.

The upcoming movie will have a prison theme as it was revealed in the posters that were created by Gökşan Özman, who has created posters for other big budget films such as "Gravity," "Noah," and "The Wolf of Wall Street." The prison theme will dominate the story, which is why he chose to focus on that particular theme.

Cameron has stated that he wants fans to enjoy the film in the most interactive way possible. He promises sharp visuals that will be realistic. He also promises underwater filming that will intrigue the fans.

The film is expected to come out on Christmas of 2017.
