The much-awaited sequel to Avatar is slated for release in 2020 - and one top film outlet has speculated that the characters will be eating a plant-based diet.

According to an article in Deadline: "The Avatar sequel is underway for a 2020 release and we hear that the characters in the films just might go vegan."

Production for the four planned Avatar sequels starts on September 25, and will be released in December 2020, 2021, 2024 and 2025.

Cameron himself is a huge proponent of the plant-based diet - he has opened a vegan school (with his wife) and will be releasing a vegan film called The Game Changers later this year.


The rumors come amid news that Cameron and his wife Suzy Amis Cameron have launched a vegan pea protein plant in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Suzy Amis Cameron said: "For years, we’ve been on a mission to help the world eat healthy food grown by farmers who have chosen to farm organically.

"Jim and I are thrilled to work with Saskatchewan experts at the Food Centre, the University of Saskatchewan and the Whitecap Dakota First Nation — all of whom have long been supporters of the mission to bring healthy food to all."
