James Cameron revealed that Sigourney Weaver’s character will be returning to the “Avatar” franchise back in 2011. Weaver portrayed Dr. Grace Augustine in 2009’s “Avatar”, a xenobotanist in charge of the Avatar Program. She died by the hand of Colonel Quaritch, who is also set to make a dramatic return to the franchise. How exactly she would be brought back to the franchise is still a mystery, but she teased fans recently in an interview saying:

“It will be challenging for me. I can’t talk about it, but my part is a little different in each one. I’ll transform somewhat. We’ll have to talk again when I survive this. For now, I’m going to skittle around and enjoy this leisure time.”

The big screen veteran will be returning for all three sequels. She mentioned that it will be challenging to tackle all three films back-to-back, but it will be exciting at the same time:

“It’s going to be an adventure!” “It will be awesome. I can’t even imagine what I am taking on – and what James Cameron is taking on – with filming three Avatars at once, but … Peter Jackson did it with the Hobbit films, so we have that to look to.”

Director James Cameron’s “Avatar” sequels will see the return of Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana. The two stars will reprise their roles as Jake Sully and Princess Neytiri respectively. Avatar 2″ is set to be released in December 2016, “Avatar 3” in December 2017, and “Avatar 4” in 2018.
