Filmmaker James Cameron says he already has ideas in place for sixth and seventh entries in the “Avatar” franchise – even as he still has three more films to complete first.

Appearing at the 51st Saturn Awards this weekend, the famed filmmaker spoke with a number of outlets – including People Magazine – where he revealed that the proposed fifth film in the series may not be the end.

As posted last night, Cameron is in post-production on the third film, with some pick-up shooting taking place in June this year ahead of a December 2025 release.

A fourth film is 25% shot and everything is on track for it to release in 2029 and a fifth in 2031. Now, he tells this outlet that writing-wise the five films are completely done and he’s already generating ideas for more:

“We’re fully written through movie five, and I’ve got ideas for six and seven, although I’ll probably be handing the baton on at that point. I mean, mortality catches up. But I mean, we’re enjoying what we’re doing. We’re loving it. We get to work with great people.”

He adds that he intends to keep working on this franchise as he sees no point in dropping it because it’s a property people have connected with, drawing comparisons to “Star Wars” and “Star Trek”.
