Avatar 2 producer Jon Landau confirmed that there would be a delay to a block of filming that was due to take place in Wellington, New Zealand.

Filming of James Cameron's Avatar' sequels in New Zealand is the latest international shoot to call a halt to production over the global spread of the coronavirus. Producer Jon Landau confirmed that there would be a delay to a block of filming that was due to take place in Wellington's Stone Street Studios in April, cited The Hollywood Reporter.

However, Wellington-based Weta Digital will continue to work on visual effects on the films.

"We've delayed it. We had plans to come down Friday night with a group of people and start back up. Now, we have made the decision to hold off and continue working in Los Angeles and come down there a little bit later than we'd planned," cited The Hollywood Reporter as Landau as saying.

'We're in the midst of a global crisis and this is not about the film industry. I think everybody needs to do now whatever we can do, as we say here, to flatten the [coronavirus] curve," he added. 

The film Avatar which was released across the globe in 2009 is set in the mid-22nd century where humans were seen colonising and exhausting the resources of a habitable moon in the Alpha Centauri star system, known as Pandora.
