We’re All Going to Be Old When Star Wars Ends, and No One Cares About Avatar!
It has become abundantly clear that we’re never going to live in a world without Star Wars. Even when we were told that The Rise of Skywalker would be the end to the trilogy, I was skeptical, and clearly for good reason, since Disney just announced the release dates for the next three movies, running the series until 2026. Can’t wait to be 35 years old and anxiously trying to get tickets.
But with that news comes pushback on those Avatar sequels that no one wants, which were also given release dates, and Twitter has been a mix of “Wow so much Star Wars! Can’t wait!” and “Who even cares about Avatar anymore?” The answer to the Avatar question? Only James Cameron.
If James Cameron thinks another Avatar can take back the top box office crown that Avengers: Endgame has been projected to finally snatch away from the original Avatar, I just have to laugh, because even Pandora at Disney World is just fun and fine, if not completely overrated—much like the movie it’s based on!
So, we all commiserated. First came the Star Wars tweets…

A Star Wars film was just announced for 2026. We are almost getting into, “Huh, I wonder if I will still be alive for some of these movies?,” territory.

I seriously dont care about Avatar anymore (barely did) were getting 4 more films? These have been continually delayed. The time has passed Cameron. I think these things are going to seriously underperform when they come out, unless they have a major surprise hook or gimmick.

Stop trying to make “Avatar ain’t happening” happen. https://t.co/UtgFMj73Nh
