Yes, nerds. Our much anticipated return to Pandora won't be happening next year as confirmed by the man himself, director James Cameron.  

We all know that Avatar 2 was scheduled for release on Christmas of this year, then it was delayed until December 2018. Well, in an interview with The Star Cameron has revealed that Avatar 2 delayed yet again.

Well, 2018 is not happening. We haven’t announced a firm release date. What people have to understand is that this is a cadence of releases. So we’re not making Avatar 2. We’re making Avatar 2, 3, 4 and 5. It’s an epic undertaking. It’s not unlike building the Three Gorges dam. (Laughs) So I know where I’m going to be for the next eight years of my life. It’s not an unreasonable time frame if you think about it. It took us four-and-a-half years to make one movie and now we’re making four. We’re full tilt boogie right now. This is my day job and pretty soon we’ll be 24-7. We’re pretty well designed on all our creatures and sets. It’s pretty exciting stuff. I wish I could share with the world. But we have to preserve a certain amount of showmanship and we’re going to draw that curtain when the time is right.

While 2018 isn't happening, it's hard to imagine the entire of 2019 will slip by without an appearance from the Na'vi, so Avatar fans holdfast. Here's hoping this latest delay is the last, but I'm not convinced. Anyone else getting a GRR vibe?
