It’s unclear if Yeoh’s role will extend beyond the first Avatar sequel, with Cameron planning three more movies to ultimately comprise a five-part film series.
Yeoh herself is no stranger to genre projects, appearing as a series regular in Star Trek: Discovery, and in a cameo as Aleta Ogord in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Avatar 2 is scheduled for a December 18, 2020 theatrical release.
