‘We’ve filmed about 80%, 90% of three. We’re still owing some scenes,’ Sam said, which brought a few gasps from those in the crowd.

He also added that there were some scenes already filmed for Avatar 4, simply because they involved kids that would be too old if they waited.

‘And in Four we did a few scenes because the kids were ageing out, so we have to do it before they get a bit older,’ he explained.

He added that there is also a fifth film in the works, ‘if we’re lucky enough to get it,’ adding: ‘We’re not arrogant enough to assume it’s going to connect.’
