A new image from Underwater Avatar: The Reason of Water uncovers more gorgeous underwater activity from James Cameron’s long-awaited sequel going to release this December.
A new shot from James Cameron’s long-awaited sequel Avatar: The Way of Water shows beautiful underwater action. The first film, which debuted in 2009, is still the highest-grossing film of all time.
The Way of Water, set more than a decade after the first Avatar film, will see the return of Jake Sully and Neytiri as well as the introduction of their four Na’vi children, Neteyam, Lo’ak, Tuktirey, and Kiri.
The sequel’s plot information is sketchy, although it is believed to concentrate upon the Sully family as they defend one another from the different threats of Pandora.
Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana reprise their roles to head the Avatar: The Way of Water ensemble, which also includes Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Giovanni Ribisi, and Matt Gerald.
Sigourney Weaver also makes a surprising comeback as Jake and Neytiri’s adoptive teenage daughter, Kiri. Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement, Michelle Yeoh, and Vin Diesel have all joined the cast. Since Disney revealed the title of Avatar 2, it seemed evident that the sequel would center on Pandora’s waters.
Empire Magazine has released yet another image of Avatar 2’s stunning underwater action. The artwork depicts a kid Na’vi swimming amid a school of alien fish while smiling slightly. Though no name is given, this little Navi looks to be one of Jake and Neytiri’s female daughters, perhaps Kiri or Tuk. Look at the image below:
Based on the promotion for the film thus far, it’s evident that the Avatar sequel has two things going for it: water and family.
The original Avatar film is remembered for its pioneering visual effects, and Cameron continues to push the edge with the sequel.
Cameron and his crew devised new equipment to shoot underwater performance capture to film these immersive sequences like the one above, a feat never previously performed that required performers to hold their breath underwater for lengthy periods of time.
Aside from stunning underwater action, the Avatar sequel will place a greater emphasis on family, with the teaser video including only one line of spoken dialogue from Jake Sully declaring, “This family is our castle.
Of course, the James Cameron-directed picture will have some breathtaking underwater imagery. However, the sequel’s familial themes should provide an emotional throughline that some felt the original film lacked.
When Avatar: The Way of Water 2 hits cinemas on December 16, audiences will be able to experience everything the movie has to offer.
