No one outside of the production of Avatar 2 has even a remotely accurate idea of exactly what film James Cameron and his team spent many years working on (originally scheduled to hit theaters in 2014). So far we’ve only seen concept art, behind-the-scenes photos with lots of water, and a superficial synopsis with lots of generalities. Zoe Saldaña , who returns as Neytiri for «Avatar 2», is ahead of us: at the end of 2021 she got to see 20 minutes of the film — and was then moved to tears.
«Make yourself ready for something»
» I got to see 20 minutes of the second film just before the turn of the year. And I was speechless. I was brought to tears ,» Zoe Saldaña said in an interview with film journalist Kevin McCarthy. The story of «Avatar 2» takes place more than ten years after «Avatar», it is about the Sully family of Jake (Sam Worthington), Neytiri and their children.
» I think you can really brace yourself, but it’s going to be an adventure you’ll never forget. James Cameron succeeded in (also) imitating water virtually, Saldaña praises the technical feats behind the film, which is set to take place largely in extraterrestrial waters.
The first of four sequels
There is good reason to assume that James Cameron and his team have created visual worlds in «Avatar 2» that have actually never been seen in cinemas in this form. Cameron earned such advance praise with the technical masterpieces “ Terminator 2 ” and “ Avatar ”. The 67-year-old now wants to devote the rest of his career to the franchise with the blue aliens: «Avatar 2» is to be followed by «Avatar 3-5».
Part 3 is already in the can, parts 4 and 5 are being filmed according to imdb . It is not only an immense technical effort, but also a gigantic financial bet on the future of a cinema market dominated by superhero films and threatened by streaming. «Avatar 2» will be in cinemas on December 14, 2022 and then we will find out how excited the audience will be for the new adventures of Jake, Neytiri & Co.
