Avatar sequelsJames Cameron's 'Avatar' sequels may hit theaters by Christmas of 2014 and 2015, the director tells Entertainment Weekly.

"I am in the process of writing the next two 'Avatar' films now," Cameron says. "We are planning to shoot them together and post them together, and we will probably release them not quite back to back, but about a year apart. Christmas '14 and '15 is the current plan."

EW notes the release dates should be treated as strictly tentative, referencing the initial film's pushed-back release date. More on the sequels after the jump.
