Is Disney’s Avatar Land Delaying The “Avatar 2″ And “Avatar 3″ Movies?

The sequel to James Cameron’s movie “Avatar” was expected to arrive in theaters in 2014, however the new release date is reportedly in 2016! The third movie in the franchise is expected to arrive one year later in 2017.
Nobody knows why the movies are being delayed for so long, but we’re wondering if it has anything to do with the new Avatar Land being built at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom park. The Disney Parks Blog revealed that construction for the new area of the park would begin in 2013, meaning it wouldn’t be completed until at least 2015 (that’s just our guess). With those years in mind, it doesn’t seem like such a bad idea for the sequel to the original movie to arrive in 2016 instead of 2014.
