James Cameron says his upcoming Avatar sequels will not have a High Frame Rate.
James Cameron’s ambitious Avatar sequels have been in the works for over ten years, with filming currently underway. Part of the reason why a Avatar sooner is because of film technology. James Cameron is a filmmaker who pushes the technology used in film forward and was waiting for the right time to make it.
One notable innovation that James Cameron is doing is with the Avatar sequels is shooing underwater. The first Avatar is best known for reinventing 3-D for films, with many wondering what James Cameron will do next as that format starts to fade. High Frame Rate was recently used with Gemini Man and in other films like The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The format hasn’t exactly taken off, but some believed James Cameron would bring High Frame Rate to his upcoming Avatar sequels. But, James Cameron recently revealed during a round table for Terminator: Dark Fate why the upcoming Avatar films will not be utilizing High Frame Rate:
“I’ve seen some clips from Gemini Man. I haven’t seen the picture yet because I’m down here in New Zealand. I’m interested to see it. I mean, I have a personal philosophy around high frame rate, which is that it is a specific solution to specific problems having to do with 3D. And when you get the strobing and the jutter of certain shots that pan or certain lateral movement across frame, it’s distracting in 3D. And to me, it’s just a solution for those shots. I don’t think it’s a format. That’s just me personally. I know Ang doesn’t see it that way. I don’t think it’s like the next 70 millimeter or the next big thing. I think it’s a tool to be used to solve problems in 3D projection. And I’ll be using it sparingly throughout the Avatar films, but they won’t be in high frame rate. But I am curious to see what they came up with.”

Plot details remain under wraps for Avatar 2, however, the sequels will further bring the world of Pandora to life and expand Cameron’s vision they explore new locations on the planet not seen in the first film. The sequels are said to be four standalone experiences that will form together one epic saga that James Cameron has spent the last several years writing.
Avatar 2 stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore, Matt Gerland, and C. C. H. Pounder are all returning for the sequels along with newcomers Cliff Curtis and Oona Chaplin.
James Cameron’s Avatar 2 is currently slated to hit theaters on December 18, 2020, with the additional three follow-ups releasing on December 17, 2021, December 20, 2024, and December 19, 2025.
