Over a decade after the first Avatar movie was released, in 2022, we will finally get to see Avatar: The Way of Water.
A title was finally announced for the sequel to Avatar in April, and now fans can start getting excited for the release of Avatar: The Way of Water.
Following the events of the first film, in which Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) is permanently transferred into his avatar after Ney’tiri saves him from suffocation, audiences will be able to see what happens next when the sequel hits theatres in December.
To sum up, the sequels are a story about family, and the lengths parents will go to keep that family together and keep them safe,” producer Jon Landau told Entertainment Weekly.
There’s no more universal theme than family, he continued, and that’s why “I always say that [James Cameron’s] movies have universal themes.”

Is there any news on when Avatar: The Way of Water will be shown in theaters?
The release of Avatar 2 has been delayed from its original December 2021 date due to the ongoing global health crisis, and will now occur on December 16, 2022.
Production on the sequel kicked off in 2017, but given that it features both live-action and motion capture sequences, the delay is understandable. Cameron stated that both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 were “100% complete” in September 2020.
With three more films on the horizon, Cameron has been busy over the past few years developing the scripts for all of them. Because of the young cast, he revealed he had already filmed some of Avatar 4 in December 2021.
“Anything that needed to be done with a specific actor, we did all the scenes for 2 and 3 together – and a little bit of 4,” he said to Variety. The youngsters had to be shot out of here.
On page 25 of the fourth film, they’re given a six-year age extension in the middle of the story. Everything after that point was unnecessary for me, but we can take care of it later.
Cameron has hinted that he may not helm Avatar 4 and 5, but he has promised that the upcoming film will be a “corker.” I really do wish I could make it.
Market factors may or may not be at play. According to his statement to Empire, “Three” has already been recorded and will be released regardless. “I’m crossing my fingers that we get to make parts four and five because this is all part of a much larger story.”
To what actors do Avatar 2 owe its success?
Sam Worthington will reprise his role as Jake Sully, while Zoe Saldana will reprise her role as Navi princess Neytiri in Avatar 2. All four sequels feature Colonel Miles Quaritch, played by Stephen Lang.
Since Quaritch was seemingly killed off at the end of the first film, fans have been left wondering how he might possibly return. Director James Cameron has said, “I’m not going to reveal exactly HOW we’re bringing him back, but it is a science fiction movie.”
Additionally, Sigourney Weaver will be reprising her role in the sequels, but in a very unusual way. As Dr. Grace Augustine, the stern scientist in charge of the avatar program in the original, she was a perfect fit for the role.
It’s anyone’s guess who she’ll be playing because she perished at the end of the last film. Kate Winslet joins the cast for the first time since her role in Titanic, and this marks Cameron’s first film with Winslet since that film’s release.
Although details about Ronal are few, it is safe to assume that Winslet is portraying a Navi because she was photographed on-site wearing a motion-capture costume. Edie Falco, from The Sopranos, plays General Ardmore, while CCH Pounder plays Moat.
Matt Gerald plays Corporal Lyle Wainfleet. The film will also center on Jake and Neytiri’s kids, with Jack Champion’s confirmed role as Spider.
If there is going to be a sequel to Avatar, what will it be about?
Even the full-length trailer for Avatar: The Way of Water has just given fans a taste of the film’s premise, so fans will have to wait a while longer to find out the full information.
The Navi are once again fleeing the carnage inflicted upon Pandora by the human race and their technologically superior weapons, although the new trailer does give some gorgeous images of underwater battle scenes.
Ten years have passed since the first film, and the action in Avatar: The Way of Water will pick up then. Sam Worthington’s Jake Sully has married the Navi woman he’s been seeing, Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), and they have a family together.
There are four members of the family in total, with one being an adopted daughter named Kiri (Sigourney Weaver).
Cameron introduced the film at this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas by saying he “went out to test the frontiers of what cinema can accomplish” with the new film, and everyone in attendance was handed 3D glasses to view the new material.
Writer-director Using underwater performance capture and “infrared depth capture to put CG figures in the live-action video,” among other techniques, Liam O’Donnell has stated that Cameron’s filmmaking process involved a total of 15 cameras, two of which were focused on each actor’s face.
“Jake Sully lives with his newfound family founded on the planet of Pandora,” reads the film’s synopsis on IMDB. Jake must join forces with Neytiri and the Navi military to save their home world against a returning foe who intends to complete what was started.
