Avatar 5 is one of four planned sequels to the 2009 film Avatar. It is set to be released in December 2027.
The film was unveiled on April 14th, 2016, along with a piece of artwork from the second film. James Cameron confirmed in an interview with The Daily Beast on January 30th, 2017 that the script for Avatar 5 was finished. 
Cameron has also stated that Avatar 5 will depend on how Avatar 2 and 3 fare financially. In January 2019, Disney CEO and chairman Bob Iger said that Avatar 4 and 5 are being developed but haven't been officially greenlit by Disney.
On May 7, 2019, Avatar 4 and 5 were mentioned as part of Disney-Fox's theatrical release date, planned for December 19, 2025 and December 17, 2027, respectively. On July 23, 2020, James Cameron announced that all Avatar sequels are delayed by one year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The new release date for Avatar 5 is December 22, 2028.
In September 2017, James Cameron stated that, as part of the back-to-back shooting of all four Avatar sequels, production on Avatar 4 and 5 would start after the release of Avatar 3. Both Avatar 4 and 5 are intended to be shot together and put through post-production sequentially, in a similar fashion to Avatar 2 and 3.
Title[edit | edit source]
James Cameron has already hinted that no sequel will actually have "Avatar" in the title, as Jake Sully is no longer an Avatar at the end of the first film. A November 2018 BBC article claimed that the title would be Avatar: The Quest for Eywa.  Cameron later clarified in a February 2018 ET interview that the title was one of many under consideration and the sequel titles hadn't been finalized at that time.
