Recently, the first official teaser for James Cameron’s new movie “Avatar 2” appeared on the network. The events of the film “The Way to Water” take place more than ten years after the finale of the first part. In the first 24 hours, the original video received almost 150 million views on digital platforms.
The main characters in the new story are former Earth soldier Jake Sully, who remained forever on Pandora in avatar form, his beloved Neytiri, and their children. The film, according to its creators, “will tell of the troubles that haunt them, the battles they fight, the tragedies they endure, and the efforts they go to to protect one another.”
Avatar: The Way of the Water will be released worldwide in December 2022. The release dates for the next installments of the saga have been announced – in 2024, 2026 and 2028. And in September an updated version of “Avatar ‘ will be sent back to theaters to remind viewers of that, as well as show it to a new generation, as 13 years have passed since the first installment was released.
The first film in the franchise was released in 2009 and held the lead as the highest-grossing film in history until the blockbuster Avengers: Endgame premiered. The “Avatar” sequel was supposed to be released in 2017, but it was constantly pushed back. The premieres have been postponed for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Avatar 2 was supposed to be released in December 2021, but has now been announced for December 2022, while Avatar 3 has been pushed back to December 20, 2024.
The sequels were filmed in New Zealand. According to Screen Rant, a significant portion of the film will take place underwater. Cameron used sophisticated and expensive new technologies, including underwater filming, to bring his ideas to life.
The film’s main actors, Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Kate Winslet and Cliff Curtis, also took part in filming the water scenes.
