Avatar sequel not coming for nearly 4 years

James Cameron is already talking about his perferred release dates for Avatar 2 and 3. And even though he plans on working on the films back-to-back, he wants a year-long break in between releases. So, what characters will be back?

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly the director revealed that is idea release dates are Christmas 2014 (for Avatar 2) and 2015 (for Avatar 3).

So, who's going to be in Avatar 2? "Basically, if you survived the first film, you get to be in the second film, at least in some form," Cameron told the magazine. Of course, Sigourney Weaver told io9 that even Dr. Grace Augustine might be back: "There could be some argument as to whether that was death, or whether that was the end of one stage of life and the beginning of another for Grace."

And there you have it, nearly four more years until more Avatar (unless they make a cartoon) — and no one is really dead unless you saw them die with your own 3D glasses.
