While fans of James Cameron are excited to see the sequel to 2009's "Avatar" on the big screen, the director is taking his time to create the next installment.

As noted by Variety,  even if the first film became the highest-grossing film of all time, Cameron said he is not rushing the second film's release before it's ready.

Cameron explained, "There's nothing I need to say as an artist about the state of the world and human affairs that I can't do through the lens of the Avatar universe. We've had a couple of years to think through the story arc of the next three films, and every day that goes by, I believe in the stories I'm telling more and more. We're not coming out of the block fast to capitalize on the last film."

That being said, The Associated Press reported that Avatar 2 is bumped to debut in 2017 instead of the planned release for next year. The delay has been attributed to Cameron's difficulty in filming all three films simultaneously.

"There's a layer of complexity in getting the story to work as a saga across three films that you don't get when you're making a standalone film," the director told AP.

Meanwhile, in a video interview with Hey U Guys, James Horner, the franchise music director explained in detail Cameron's dilemma. He shared, "Right now Jim has four sequels, script wise, and he's trying to make it into three. And that is where, I think, his effort is going right now. To keep it to three sequels. Because he's got so much going on how do you keep it from expanding into a fifth movie, total. And he'll get that sorted out."

"Avatar 2" is delayed until December 25, 2017, and the three plot films are yet to be revealed. According to Coming Soon, despite reports of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) embarking on another journey to a different planet, the sequel will see a return to Pandora, but in a slightly different habitat, which Cameron described as an "ocean ecosystem for Pandora."

Actress Zoe Saldana also said that she's already caught a glimpse of the scripts, which the production team is still working on. She told MTV, "We kind of get choked up. [Cameron] gets emotional telling us about the story. I get emotional hearing about it, so I'm looking forward to it."

Variety also reported that despite Dr. Grace Agustine's (Sigourney Weaver) demise in the first film, she will be back for the next two sequels, and Col. Miles Quaritch (Stephen Lang) will still be the major antagonist in at least the second movie.
