*CCH Pounder is set to reprise her role as spiritual leader Mo’at in the four upcoming “Avatar” sequels, according to Variety.

Director James Cameron announced at CinemaCon in 2016 that four “Avatar” sequels were on deck, beginning Dec. 18, 2020, for “Avatar 2.” “Avatar 3” will open on Dec. 17, 2021, followed by a three-year break for “Avatar 4,” set for Dec. 20, 2024. “Avatar 5” will then debut on Dec. 19, 2025.

Cameron said his original plan was for two sequels, but after meeting with the screenwriters, artists, and designers, he realized that he had too much material for just two films. He initially decided on three sequels, then jumped to four.
