7 Long-Awaited Movie Sequels We're Already Lining Up For

Better late (read: over two decades) than never, right?

AVATAR 2

After close to a decade, the second installment of the global phenomenon that is Avatar is slated to hit theaters in December 2017. Much like the first, Avatar 2 will carry moviegoers on an emotional journey – one that has already been felt by the cast, including star Zoë Saldana. "I'm excited for it," she told PEOPLE after getting a sneak peek at the sequel's sketches and sculptures. "You have no idea, I can't wait to shoot it. I can't wait to walk like I have a tail." Good news, Zoë: a third and fourth installment are also in the works.
