New York — James Cameron has set the release dates for the next four Avatar sequels, with the first coming in 2020.

The movie's Facebook page Saturday posted a photo of Cameron and his massive film crew, who have been working on all four films simultaneously. 

The post said Avatar 2 will hit theatres 18 December 2020, and Avatar 3 comes a year later, on 17 December 2021.

The franchise then takes a three-year hiatus before returning with Avatar 4 on 20 December 2024, and Avatar 5 on 19 December 2025. The first sequel had been expected in 2018 but Cameron this year said that timetable wouldn't be met. (Read more here.)
