James Cameron delays Avatar sequels

Despite a pretty lackluster fanbase, and bad reviews on everything but the visual effects, we are set to get three sequels to James Cameron's 2009 film, Avatar. We were supposed to be getting these sequels in 2016, 2017, and 2018 but Cameron has pushed each back a year.

Cameron and his visual effects supervisor, Joe Letteri, felt that a 2016 was too ambitious seeing that filming hasn't even started yet. The visual effects alone will take months and months to complete, but other issues were happening with the scripts. Cameron and his writing team are writing the sequels simultaneously and were supposed to have finished them by now, but they have hit a snag and need more time to complete the writing.

So there you have it. If you were somehow interested in these sequels you will have to wait a little bit longer. Another thing that no one is mentioning that I thought of was the upcoming Avatar Land at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Florida. If I remember correctly they were hoping for that to be completed by 2017 so with Avatar 2 receiving a delay would put it right at the opening of the new area. Marketing much?
