As part of the fallout of the coronavirus spreading across the world, many of the movie production has shut down to keep their cast and the crew members safe. The Avatar sequels are also among the cinematic projects that are now on the halt. Stephen Lang also is known as Colonel Miles in the Avatar Universe, has lately responded about the delay.
Commenting on the news about the production of Avatar delay, the actor Stephen Lang also offered a hopeful sentiment for those people whois concerned about the future of the franchise. He said that we should wait for it is worth it and the people should take care of themselves.
In addition to his assuring words, the actor also delivered a Na’ vi phrases in his tweet, which translates in English as “I see you”. It has now been over ten years since the first Avatar movie was released, so it is needless to say that a lot of anticipation has been built for the next chapter for director James Cameron’s sci-fi world.
As of the previous week, the plan was for the Avatar executive team, which may or may not have been included James Cameron, to fly from Los Angeles back to New Zealand to resume the production of Avatar 2, Avatar3, and also some parts of Avatar 4. This is because the COVID-19 pandemic shows no signs to stop or slow down. And the productions has been postponed indefinitely.
This also goes without saying that shutting down the filming on the Avatar sequels for the foreseeable future was a very good call to decrease the chances of the coronavirus disease which is spreading among the working in front of and behind the cameras. However, it is also worth mentioning that New Zealand has also set up some major travel restrictions, which include that any international travelers coming into the country must spend at least 14 days in the quarantine.
