Following its purchase of Fox earlier this year, Disney has now announced the release dates for Avatar 2 and the future Star Wars films.

Since Avatar was released in 2009, fans have been eagerly anticipating the film’s sequel but they’ll have to wait a little longer as Disney have said Avatar 2 will be released in 2021. This means fans will have waited twelve years between the release of the two films.

However, Disney have also said the sequel will be followed by three more Avatar movies which will all be released between 2021 and 2027.

Given the success of the original Avatar – which is still currently the highest grossing film of all time – we can expect the future instalments to be just as record-breaking.

As well as giving an update on Avatar, Disney have also said we can expect more Star Wars films in the years 2022, 2024 and 2026.
