James Cameron is willing to cancel the Avatar franchise if The Way of Water bombs

With $2.9 billion worldwide, James Cameron’s Avatar remains the highest-grossing film of all time, but that was more than a decade ago, which makes us wonder if the upcoming Avatar sequels have a chance to regain this box office. In addition to The Way of the WaterJames Cameron has three more Avatar sequels in the works, but what if The Way of the Water bombs?

While talking to Total movieJames Cameron said he would cut Avatar franchise card if The Way of the Water not impressing at the box office. This would leave Avatar 3 as the series finale. “The market could tell us we’re done in three months, or we might be half-done, which means, ‘OK, let’s finish the story in movie three, and not go on forever,’ if it’s just not profitable,Cameron said. “We are even in a different world now than we were when I wrote this. It’s the one-two punch – the pandemic and streaming. Or vice versa, maybe we want to remind people what going to the theater is all about. This film certainly does. The question is: how many people care now?

Despite remaining at the top of the box office, audiences have long questioned whether we really need another Avatar movies, let alone four more, but I’ve long since learned never to underestimate James Cameron. While I’m not waiting Avatar: The Way of Water dethroning its predecessor, I’m pretty sure it will do well.

Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri and their children), the troubles that follow them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the struggles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they exposed to. Avatar: The Way of Water coming to the cinema December 16.

Do you think we will see all four Avatar sequels?
