Avatar Producer Confirms A Major Time Jump in Avatar 4

At a press conference for the home release of Avatar: The Way of Water, producer Jon Landau revealed that there will be a significant time jump in the upcoming film. He claimed that the first act of Avatar 4 has already been shot and that there is a time cut that requires the jump after that. The children needed to be killed before they grew too old, according to Landau. For those who don’t know, James Cameron is the man behind the wildly successful sci-fi franchise known as Avatar.

A huge hit when it first debuted in 2009, first film. Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 are currently in production, and the original Avatar remains the highest-grossing film of all time. However, they chose to give it a subtitle rather than a number, making Avatar: The Way of Water actually Avatar 2. Ten to fifteen years after the first movie, Avatar: The Way of Water takes place. The narrative centers on Jake Sully, a human with a unique bond to the Na’vi, the indigenous people of the planet Pandora. Jake aided the Na’vi in the first film in their battle against the Resources Development Administration (RDA), a villainous company that was attempting to mine a valuable mineral from the planet.


Colonel Miles Quaritch, a resurrected RDA villain, is the main threat to Jake and his Na’vi wife Neytiri’s family in the movie The Way of Water. So there will be a significant time shift in Avatar 4. This indicates that the story will take place a long time after The Way of Water’s events. The film will probably begin where the previous one left off before moving forward in time. This could imply that a significant event that occurs at the conclusion of The Way of Water sets up the remainder of the narrative.


The time jump may also have simply been necessary to take the Sully children’s aging into account. The children of Jake and Neytiri in The Way of Water are a son and a daughter who are both still quite young. The kids will be older if the story takes place a few years later, which may be significant to the plot. The world of Pandora is supposed to be further expanded in Avatar 3. New Na’vi cultures will also be introduced, along with new biomes. It’s possible that the time jumps in Avatar 4 will enable even more exploration of Pandora and its inhabitants.


Perhaps Jake and his family will venture to distant regions of the planet to enlist the aid of other tribes in their final stand against the RDA. Naturally, we won’t fully understand the significance of the time jump in Avatar 4 until the film is released. It seems like a long time to wait, but given how long the first Avatar movie took to make, it’s not too surprising that it won’t be until 2026. At least Avatar 2 and 3 are coming soon. A spinoff film based in the Avatar universe will be directed by Robert Rodriguez, it should be noted.


The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 4D: The Return of the Heroes will see the titular characters collaborating with a fresh hero to save the world. It will be interesting to see what Rodriguez does with the Avatar franchise since he is known for making action-packed, extravagant movies. Avatar has a promising future overall. Fans have been anticipating the sequels for a long time, and it doesn’t appear that they will be let down. In Avatar 4, there is a significant time shift.
