I have no doubt that Avatar2 will be a big movie, between the hype, the nostalgia and the factor of curiosity. But 3-5 to the Avatars? Let's just say that if we never actually see Avatar 5, I won't be shocked, because I suspect this franchise will turn out to be a case of diminishing returns. Betting against James Cameron is never smart, but he has never been known for his storytelling, and that's what he will need to sustain four sequels - a great story, with memorable characters. In 2009, Avatar succeeded as a spectacle because there was no competition, and nothing else looked like it. But any movie now looks like Avatar. And yes, Cameron is supposed to push the envelope again and do new things with technology to make a Pandora underwater world come true, but I've heard it's not as mind-blowing as how Avatar raised the bar in 2009 for 3D. It is basically developing a way of photographing realistic water - which I think has to do with the ping pong balls in the photo - which is a big deal for tech nerds, but at this point the audience probably won't care about photo-real water. Again, we 're used to looking totally realistic in CG movies now.

Fun fact: Much of the performance capture took place in this 900,000 gallon tank, built specifically for the sequels. pic.twitter.com/NSfqoZ6jXJ
Except for #JamesCameron's #Avatar movie from 2009, it will be very, VERY hard indeed for someone to think of any other science fiction film that has attained such beauty in its backdrops. pic.twitter.com/DUBmpQuLzb— Timothy Mckenzie (@UlyssesSBob) May 15, 2020
I suspect Cameron is also aware of what he is up against with this one. That's why, I think, he's always going off on superhero films. He knows that the world has changed since 2009, that the bar he initially raised has become the norm, and that spectacle alone doesn't win over audiences anymore. Consider the fate of The Rise of Skywalker, a good-looking movie with one of Star Wars history's best lightsaber duels, and fans rejected it because the story made no sense and the characters weren't well served. No matter how good it looked, the story was bad and nobody liked it. If that can happen to STAR WARS, with all of the world's fan goodwill, what can happen to Avatar, with its lack of popular support?
Well, as I said, # 3 will come out because they've already started working on it, and the sunken cost kicks in on fallacy. But then the rest of it? There is a real chance that this never happens. Part of me thinks that James Cameron will always find a way to surprise us, no matter how crazy his projects may seem, but part of me also knows that no one ever speaks of Avatar. You may see a few cosplayers at a convention, but this isn't a popular getup, and the fanfiction community is small (fanfiction is a GREAT measure of the impact of a movie). Disney is invested in Avatar because they have a section of Pandora in their theme parks, but that attraction is popular without the arrival of new movies all the time (Disney Pandora features an indoor, air-conditioned boat ride, ALWAYS a popular feature thanks to the heat break). They need not necessarily fund 4 sequels to keep the park attraction alive. Will people concern themselves with Avatar 2? Yeah. Will they concern themselves with Avatar 5? If Cameron does not produce more interesting characters, probably not.
