As you know, James Cameron is a renowned filmmaker known for his farsight, especially with the release of Avatar, which was released in 2009. After Avatar’s record-breaking success, the sequel was planned for Avatar2 and Avatar3. Regarding the sequel of Avatar, it is one of the most awaited movies among the audience for the decade. In 2017 the filming for the sequel started. Because of a combination of live-action and motion capture elements, the movie has taken a while to complete.
Insanely complicated yet best action ever in Avatar 2 by Stephen Lang.
As per the reports in April 2022, Cameron said he has been putting the final touches on the sequel, so by December, the sequel for Avatar can be released. So it will be interesting to watch the most awaited movie in theatres by the end of this year, and the best part of this movie is Zoe Saldana. She will be reprising the role of Navi princess Neytiri, and Sam Worthington is returning as human-turned Navi, Jake Sully.
From the teaser, it is clear that Stephen Lang has returned as dead colonel Miles Quaritch, who will be the movie’s main villain. Sigourney Weaver and James Cameron have excellent work relationships throughout the first part of Avatar, which was released in 2009. However, her character Dr Grace Augustine lost early in the first part. So it will be great to witness the Alien icon in the sequel part of the Avatar.
So the journey begins on Pandora after decade- Avatar 3!
If you talk about the sequel, there are four to five sequels have been planned for Avatar, starting with “The way of Water” for part 2 and Avatar 3 and Avatar 4. Most of the part for part 3 has been completed, which is slated to be released after two years from the release of part 2, i.e. “The Way of Water”, in 2024. The script’s first draft for Avatar 2 didn’t include dialogue from characters like Jake or Neytiri because he wanted to explore new ideas about language and culture without being limited by what other movies had done before him (i.e., Star Wars).
He tried to focus more on how humans relate to each other than what they say back-and-forth while fighting aliens; this ultimately resulted in some exciting changes when compared side-by-side with other films like Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, where everyone speaks English but still manages somehow communicate despite not knowing each other at all!
Is the journey for Neytiri going to be a dreamlike on Pandora?
As of now, it is not clear whether these will be original stories or adaptations of existing material. Still, it seems likely that Cameron will continue to build on his universe as he did with The Terminator franchise in 1984. It’s also unclear if Cameron intends to direct the Avatar sequels himself. He said he was still working on the scripts so that he could direct them after all. However, it has to be noted that he hasn’t produced a film since 2009’s Avatar itself and hasn’t directed a sequel since 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day, let alone the sequels for the Avatar.
What’s in the plate for the audience beyond Pandora?
Talking about the characters for Avatar, it is evident that the characters will go to Pandora and beyond, with scenes taking place on various moons in orbit around the gas giant. The moon Pandora is in orbit around the gas giant Polyphemus, which is home to several moons. These include Polyphemus and its companion planet Pandora, which are in an elliptical orbit around the parent body. Polyphemus’s other two moons: Thalassa and Tethys, were discovered in 2014 by astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope.
Apart from this, Kate Winslet, known for her character Rose in “Titanic”, will be imitating the role of Ronal in all the sequels of Avatar. This is not the first time James Cameron will collaborate with Kate Winslet before this duo already given the blockbuster “Titanic” in 1997.
Since the sequel will present a new Navi clan called Metkayina controlled by “Fear the walking dead’s” cliff Curtis as Tonowariand, the character Ronal is loyal and fearless and is the co-leader of the Metkayina clan. In the coming sequel, Jake and Neytiri will have their own family, including their children, played by Jamie Flatter’s Neteyam, Britain Dalton’s Lo’ak and Trinity Bliss as Tuktiry.
Overall, I can say the sequel’s teaser has been captivating enough to engage the audience with their diverse character play and the showcasing of the journey of Jake and Neytiri.
Though James Cameron is known for his epic execution of movies with science fiction, he initially gained fame with the direction of Terminator in the industry. He has won several academy awards for various films. So it will be interesting to watch his much-awaited movie this holiday season.
