    "Avatar" Film Director James Cameron and performers from "Toruk" pose at the Opening Night for the New York Premeire of Cirque Du Soleil's "Toruk" inspired by the James Cameron film "Avatar" at Barclays Center on September 7, 2016 in New York City.

    James Cameron has set the release dates for the next four "Avatar" sequels, with the first coming in 2020.

    The movie's Facebook page Saturday posted a photo of Cameron and his massive film crew, who have been working on all four films simultaneously. The post said "Avatar 2" will hit theaters Dec. 18, 2020, and "Avatar 3" comes a year later, on Dec. 17, 2021.

    The franchise then takes a three-year hiatus before returning with "Avatar 4" on Dec. 20, 2024, and "Avatar 5" on Dec. 19, 2025. The first sequel had been expected in 2018 but Cameron this year said that timetable wouldn't be met.

    The original 2009 "Avatar" film has netted over $2.7 billion, centering on the conflict between humans and the blue-skinned alien race Na'vi of Pandora.
