Avatar is set to rekease up to three films going by the success of Avatar: The Way of Water. There’s always a chance that they could expand beyond that, but director James Cameron and producer Jon Landau have seemingly at least mapped out as far as its fifth entry. Instead of keeping everything as close to the chest as possible, they are giving us a small glimpse of what the future has in store for us.
In a new interview with Empire, Landau got the chance to hint at what exactly is heading our way in the fourth and fifth Avatar entries. We know that the third will introduce the fire Na’vi race known as the Ash People. It looks like the first entry will feature “a big time jump” which also matches taking the age of the actors into account.
Landau also highlighted once again the visit to Earth, which he previously confirmed in an interview with Gizmodo, which technically might be quite a spoiler on the future of a character in this story.

This time around, he highlighted that they’ll get a chance to explore Earth which is suffering from “’over-population and a depletion of our natural resources that make life harder.” So, we’ll likely see Neyitiri exploring a world that is different from nature telling her exactly what humanity has done wrong. Perhaps it also opens the possibility of a rift between her and Jake Sully, as she never believed just how far humanity has fallen.
