Canadian filmmaker and director James Cameron has recently confirmed that filming on Avatar 2 and 3 is almost done after the Covid-19 pandemic had delayed shooting.

"We've got about 10 percent left to go. We're 100 percent complete on Avatar 2 and we're sort of 95 percent complete on Avatar 3," Cameron said in a video call with Terminator friend Arnold Schwarzenegger. "Covid hit us like it hit everybody... We lost about four and a half months of production. As a result of that, we've rolled around one more full year for a release in December of 2022. That's been announced already. Now that doesn't mean I have an extra year to finish the film, because the day we deliver Avatar 2 we'll just start working on finishing Avatar 3."

The biopic is going to be set at the royal family's Sandringham estate and will follow Diana as she comes to term with the end of her marriage.

In a first-ever commercially operated, direct flight from Los Angeles to Wellington, the Avatar Crew including James Cameron returned to New Zealand to resume production on the sequels of Avatar. Entry in the country was allowed as the project was deemed to have "significant economic value". The crew of 50 people has to enter a "14-day Government-supervised self-isolation" before resuming filming.
