#Zealand    #New    #production    #Landau

Avatar 2 producer Jon Landau is due back in Wellington this week and has praised the way New Zealand has handled the crisis.” 33
Production on James Cameron’s long – in – the – making Avatar sequels is set to restart in New Zealand as soon as “next week,” according to producer Jon Landau.” 19
As cities around the globe were shutting down to contain the virus, Avatar producer Jon Landau told the New Zealand Herald that production was temporarily suspended : “We ‘ve delayed it.” 36
However, you Avatar heads will be delighted to hear that the sequels have resumed production in New Zealand, albeit with a much smaller crew.” 29
Following the recent announcement that the Avatar sequels would be resuming production in New Zealand, producer Jon Landau has teased what fans can expect from the plot of James Cameron’s Avatar 2, according to Vital Thrills.” 1

#Jake    #Neytiri    #Worthington    #Saldana    #Sam

It follows Jake Sully ( Sam Worthington ) as he roams the planet of Pandora with the new family he has with Neytiri ( Zoe Saldana ).” 17
The original movie follows protagonist Jake Sully ( Worthington ) and his alien companion Neytiri ( Saldana ) across the jungles of Pandora.” 3
This confirms that Jake ( Sam Worthington ) and Neytiri ( Zoe Saldana ) did indeed settle down after Jake transferred his consciousness into an avatar body at the end of the first movie.” 9
Now integrated into his Na’vi avatar body full – time, Jake Sully ( Sam Worthington ) has settled down on Pandora to build a family with Neytiri ( Zoe Saldana ).” 23
Producer Jon Landau teased some details about the film in a recent interview and said that Jake ( Sam Worthington ) and Neytiri ( Zoe Saldana ) will have a family after settling down together.” 39

#date    #delayed    #set

Director James Cameron said the anticipated sequel to his 2009 hit will miss the planned release date set for Christmas next year.” 11
The wait for James Cameron’s first “Avatar” sequel is set to end in December 2021, well over a decade after the original’s 2009 release, but not even that release date is set in stone.” 4
Recently speaking with Empire Magazine, Cameron said that he didn’t believe the production delay would affect the sequels’ various release dates, which range between 2021 and 2027.” 9
The slow re – opening of overseas productions have given Cameron confidence that Avatar 2 can still make its December 2021 release date, and the recent release of a string of behind – the – scenes images of the set supports that.” 18

#sequel    #years    #fans    #decade

It has been more than a decade since Avatar was released, and next year fans will finally get to see the first of four sequels in the works from James Cameron.” 30
After last year’s fiasco of Avenger’s Endgame catching up with and surpassing the original Avatar, fans of James Cameron’s masterpiece are ready for a sequel.” 24
In other words, Cameron has been saying he’ll make a sequel to Avatar for years, leaving many fans of the film to just believe it when they see it.” 12
Fast forward over 10 years and the sequel to the now second highest – grossing movie of all time is still, if you can believe it, over a year away.” 14
The sequels to Cameron’s blockbuster sci – fi epic have been in development for 11 years now, but it seems like we’re actually getting close to seeing them finally come out.” 29

#Lang    #Stephen    #Sigourney    #Weaver    #villain

There are also surprise returns for Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang, whose characters Grace Augustine and General Quaritch both died in the first movie.” 22
Sci – fi goddess Sigourney Weaver and bad guy Stephen Lang will be back too, despite the fact that both their characters died in the first film.” 8
The Avatar sequels are bringing back the original movie’s cast members Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, Stephen Lang, Sigourney Weaver, and Matt Gerald.” 18
August 8, 2017 : It’s revealed that Stephen Lang, the villain who died in the first Avatar film, will be back as the villain in ALL of the Avatar sequels.” 14
Cameron recently explained that Stephen Lang’s Colonel Miles Quaritch is coming back for all four sequels and will be the main villain throughout the story.” 1

#December    #follow    #Christmas

Avatar 2 on December 17, 2021; Avatar 3 in December 2023; Avatar 4 in December 2025; and Avatar 5 in December 2027.” 16
Avatar 2 ‘on December 17, 2021;’ Avatar 3 ‘in December 2023;’ Avatar 4 ‘in December 2025; and’ Avatar 5 ‘in December 2027.” 10
Avatar 2 is slated for release on Christmas 2018, with Avatar 3 following on Christmas 2020, Avatar 4 on Christmas 2022, and Avatar 5 on Christmas 2023.” 36
Avatar 2 will hit theaters on December 17, 2021, followed by Avatar 3 on December 22, 2023; then Avatar 4 on December 19, 2025; and finally Avatar 5 on December 17, 2027.” 31
We’re getting the sequel on December 17, 2021; Avatar 3 on December 22, 2023; Avatar 4 on December 19, 2025; and Avatar 5 on December 17, 2027.” 36

#Disney    #December    #scheduled    #Fox

Looking back on it, it seems almost absurd that Avatar 2 was scheduled for release in December 2014, and Avatar 3 was scheduled for December 2015.” 8
Disney releases an updated release calendar of its films, noting that the first Avatar sequel is still slated to emerge December 17, 2021.” 36
Disney — which acquired 20th Century Fox last year — has scheduled the release of “Avatar 2” for Dec. 17, 2021, followed by three more “Avatar” films in 2023, 2025 and 2027.” 20
Disney originally said it would release “Avatar 2” in 2014, before it changed the date to 2017 and then to December 2020.” 40
You know that Star Wars – shaped hole that’ll be making December release schedules feel rather empty after The Rise of Skywalker?” 22

#family    #Sully    #story    #Landau    #events

When asked if he had any Avatar secrets, Landau said “This is the story of the Sully family and what one does to keep their family together.” 21
Speaking to the New Zealand news site RNZ, Landau explained : “This is the story of the Sully family and what one does to keep their family together.” 26
The plot of the film, according to Landau, will be about what the Sully family will do to keep the family together.” 39
Jon, who is producing the flick, told RNZ : “This is the story of Sully family and what one does to keep their family together.” 13
We also got some new, very watery, plot points for Avatar 2 out of Landau : “This is the story of the Sully family and what one does to keep their family together.” 38

#director    #work    #time    #crimp    #stride

While Cameron admits the COVID-19 shutdown has ‘put a major crimp in our stride,’ the director admitted to Empire that he still thinks the sequel will arrive on time.” 15
Speaking about how lockdown has affected filming, director James Cameron told Empire : “It’s putting a major crimp in our stride here.” 25
Back to work : ‘I want to get back to work on Avatar 2, which right now we’re not allowed to do under state emergency laws or rules.” 15
The director added at the time, “I ‘ve got a couple months in New Zealand in the spring, so we’re kind of on track with what we set out to do.” Even with the production shutdown, Cameron is hustling to ensure “Avatar 2” gets released on time.” 4

#Seed    #Bearer    #Tulkun

These movies may or may not be titled Avatar : The Way of Water, Avatar : The Seed Bearer, Avatar : The Tulkun Rider, and Avatar : The Quest for Eywa.” 36
The Seed Bearer, Avatar : The Tulkun Rider and Avatar : The Quest for Eywa – which Cameron later confirmed are potential titles, but could be subject to change.” 8
Alternatively, he could just keep things simple by going the Alien route with Avatars, Avatar3, Avatar Resurrection and Avatar Vs Predator.” 22
Although Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 will only be released with director James Cameron’s caveat that Avatar 2 and 3 are successful at the box office.” 1
If Cameron’s timeline continues apace, the live – action component for Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 will be wrapped before the first sequel premieres.” 5

#pandemic    #production    #Hollywood    #question    #standstill

That would make it one of the first big Hollywood productions to get back to work since the global pandemic brought much of the world to a standstill in March.” 7
During the coronavirus pandemic, the question of how Hollywood will continue to make movies has remained on the minds of many audience members and industry personnel alike.” 12
That likely means Avatar 2 will be the first major Hollywood title to start filming again in the wake of the industry – wide production shutdown in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.” 6
This is because apart from people staying indoors and travelling less, large parts of China’s industrial base have come to a standstill in the wake of the pandemic.” 34

#Michelle    #Yeoh    #Vin    #Diesel    #Oona

They will be joined by newcomers Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Michelle Yeoh, Jemaine Clement, Oona Chaplin, David Thewlis and Vin Diesel.” 34
They will be joined by the other new cast members that include Edie Falco, Michelle Yeoh, Vin Diesel, Jemaine Clement, and Oona Chaplin.” 31
New cast members include Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Brendan Cowell, Michelle Yeoh, Jemaine Clement, Oona Chaplin, David Thewlis, Vin Diesel, and CJ Jones.” 37
But there are several new cast members in the mix as well, including Kate Winslet, Edie Falco, Michelle Yeoh, Vin Diesel, Jemaine Clement, and Oona Chaplin.” 18
The cast of the Avatar franchise includes Kate Winslet, Edie Falco, Michelle Yeoh, Vin Diesel, Jemaine Clement, and Oona Chaplin alongside a slate of young actors.” 1

#promises    #ways    #teetering    #permeate

But while these themes will undoubtedly continue to permeate the Avatar sequels, Cameron is pessimistic about cinema’s ability to create real change.” 5
Here’s a timeline of all Cameron’s Avatar promises that once seemed broken, or at least teetering on the edge of breaking, but he’s definitely about to make good on them, you’ll see.” 36
As to the movies ‘appearance, Cameron promises that they will be so advanced you “just won’t be able to imagine” what they’re going to look like.” 8
Cameron confirmed to Entertainment Weekly way back in 2014 that Weaver is coming back as “a different and in many ways more challenging character” – it seems reasonable to assume Grace’s return may have something to do with her consciousness passing into the Tree of Souls.” 22

#grossing    #Avengers    #Endgame    #record

The first Avatar film released in 2009 and was the highest – grossing film ever until the release of Avengers Endgame.” 32
The worldwide record was broken last year by Avengers : Endgame, which earned $ 2.797 billion worldwide, $ 858.3 million of which coming domestically.” 15
Disney’s current Marvel offering, “Avengers : Endgame,” is the largest theatrical release of all time, bringing in $ 2.23 billion so far.” 40
Avengers : Endgame might currently stand as the biggest movie all time, but it took an entire decade for the previous holder of that record to be toppled.” 2
Avatar became the highest – grossing movie of all time when it was released in 2009, with a domestic box office tally of $ 760.5 million and a worldwide gross of $ 2.790 billion.” 15

#Pandora    #movie    #explore    #oceans    #planet

Other than a return to the planet and people of Pandora, little is known about where the movie will be heading, not to mention the multiple planned sequels to follow ( four more movies in all ).” 26
All that is currently known about the upcoming movie is that the underwater world of Pandora will be explored and play an important role in the story.” 37
It’s also been confirmed that much of the movie will take place around Pandora’s oceans, with the newly introduced sea – faring Metkayina clan playing a key role.” 22
And, eventually, that braid will intertwine with your eyeballs and we’ll get to see the continuing adventures on the planet Pandora.” 14
We don’t need to go to another world if we want water, we’re going to go to the oceans of Pandora.” 31

#episodes    #series    #planned    #filming

The series was filming the first two episodes of the series, directed by J.A. Bayona, with the bulk of the shooting done.” 16
According to Variety, production on Avatar 2 will continue as planned, and in November 2018, motion – capture filming had finished.” 8
There are no plans for production to resume to just finish the two episodes, with the shutdown segueing into the planned 4 – 5 month hiatus.” 16
As Deadline reported late last year, in conjunction with an early Season 2 renewal for the fantasy drama, the LOTR series was to go on a 4 – 5-month hiatus after filming the first two episodes.” 16

#movie    #sequels    #character    #said    #ve

We ‘ve cast them, and we ‘ve [ performance ] captured movie two, movie three, and the first part of movie four.” 14
We ‘ve cast them, and we ‘ve [ performance ] captured movie two, movie three and the first part of movie four.” 5
Though technological feats are clearly integral to the movie, Landau said of the four sequels : “At the heart of any movie are the characters.” 8
Even more recently, Weaver has said she’s not actually playing the same character in the sequels as she did in the original.” 0
One of the showrunners of the film franchise has shared that each of the four sequels will play as a standalone movie.” 35
A few years ago she said that her part is a little bit different in each sequel and that she’ll “transform somewhat” between them.” 0

#K    #projection    #cinema    #stereo

These include 3D 48fps in 2 K and 4 K, 3D 24fps in 2 K and 4 K, and 3D 24fps in HD.” 27
Over a decade has passed since Avatar first hit cinema screens, and 3D has largely drifted into memory as a fad.” 22
A Teranex AV format convertor supports multiple stereo feeds in 4 K at frame beyond 24 / fps “all day every day” while a Smart VideoHub 40×40 12 G operates at 4 K 48fps to route all signals.” 27
A decade ago, Avatar defied Hollywood skeptics, smashed box office records, catalysed digital 3D cinema and soaked up a quarter of a billion dollars in pioneering virtual production techniques.” 27
These are a screening room adjacent to the stages and a mobile projection pod built into a small trailer housing a Christie Digital 3D projector capable of projecting DCI compliant dailies.” 27

#working    #Weta    #Digital    #everybody    #effects

We ‘ve got everybody — everybody at Weta Digital and Lightstorm — working from home to the extent that that is possible.” 4
The filmmaker also added, “We ‘ve got everybody – everybody at Weta Digital and Lightstorm – working from home to the extent that that is possible.” 10
Wellington – based Weta Digital will continue to work on visual effects on the films, reportedly budgeted at NZ$1.65 billion ( $ 1 billion ).” 19
While plans for principal photography have been pushed back, digital work is still being done by visual effects artists working from home.” 15
Since then, they have continued to work on the film’s virtual production in California and with Weta Digital on the visual effects.” 16
Much of the original team returns, including Weta Digital as the film’s VFX vendor, Joe Letteri as lead VFX supervisor and editors John Refoua and Stephen Rivkin.” 27

#Pandora    #invaders    #fought    #marine    #ocean

There will be a time jump in “Avatar 2” after the people of Pandora fought a war and defeated the invaders in the first film.” 39
We’re heading back to Pandora, where the indigenous Na’vi people fought off the human invaders ravaging their beautiful lands to mine precious “unobtainium “.” 22
Plot specifics are currently as elusive as the ‘Unobtainium’ the human invaders were trying to extract from Pandora in the original Avatar.” 22
Having saved Pandora and embraced his alien body, the former marine is now faced with the daunting task of building a life for himself.” 28
That sequel, The Way of Water, will journey to Pandora’s oceans, exploring a side of the alien ecosystem unseen in the first movie.” 5

#surface    #water    #prevent    #lights    #create

That layer of white on the water’s surface is comprised of floating balls that prevent lights from interfering with filming underwater.” 16
Adding a layer of balls to the surface of his shooting tank prevents the light from creating the disruption, while also allowing the actors to, you know, come to the surface and breathe and survive.” 3
In water, the clash of air and liquid can create reflections that create false markers for the motion – capture cameras to detect.” 3
Part of the solution involved covering the surface of the tank in small white balls that prevent overhead studio lights from contaminating the performance capture system below … while still allowing anyone below to surface safely through them should the need arise.” 27

#vessel    #Matador    #speed    #command    #Picador

One of these ships is a high – speed forward command vessel that is called the Matador and the other vessel is the Picador jetboat.” 39
Check out the Matador, a high speed forward command vessel ( bottom ) and the Picador jetboat ( top ) — can’t wait to share more.” 32
Laudau also revealed a new photo of two new futuristic boats featured in the film : The Matador, “a high speed forward command vessel” ( bottom ) and The Picador, a jetboat ( top ).” 6

#AVTR    #car    #Vision    #creature

Describing the Vision AVTR as “a living creature,” Daimler said the car has 33 “bionic flaps” on the back — reminiscent of reptilian scales — that can communicate with the driver ( and “through the driver” ) via naturally flowing movements in subtle gestures.” 20
Cameron joined Ola Kallenius, chairman of Daimler AG and head of Mercedes – Benz Cars, to promote his upcoming film and talk about working with the German car manufacturer on the “Vision AVTR” concept vehicle ( pictured below ), including the importance of sustainability.” 20
The Vision AVTR uses sustainable materials, including seats covered by “vegan Dinamica leather” and a floor decorated with an Indonesian wood called Karuun.” 20
Other creature – y features of the Mercedes – Benz Vision AVTR : Instead of a conventional steering wheel, there’s a multifunctional control element in the center console that recognizes the driver by his or her heartbeat and breathing.” 20

#water    #training    #breath    #hold    #swimming

Not just CG water, but actually underwater, with the actors apparently trained to hold their breath for up to four minutes, while wearing performance capture suits and no scuba breathing gear.” 27
A grueling mix of swimming and getting smacked in the face, water – polo training involved miles of laps at 5:30 a.m. and endless treading drills.” 3
We ‘ve been training them for six months now, with how to hold their breath, and they’re all up in the two – to – four – minute range.” 3
Thankfully, I only spent one semester holding 5-gallon water – cooler jugs above my head as I scissor – kicked for dear life.” 3

Part 2

#family    #Jake    #Neytiri    #story

Since family reportedly plays such a major role in Avatar 2, Jake and Neytiri’s children promise to be a pivotal part of the narrative.” 3
When asked if he had any Avatar secrets, Landau said “This is the story of the Sully family and what one does to keep their family together.” 19
This confirms that Jake ( Sam Worthington ) and Neytiri ( Zoe Saldana ) did indeed settle down after Jake transferred his consciousness into an avatar body at the end of the first movie.” 6
Given that Landau refers to the main cast of characters as a “family,” it seems that Jake and Neytiri will have a child.” 21
We also got some new, very watery, plot points for Avatar 2 out of Landau : “This is the story of the Sully family and what one does to keep their family together.” 0

#James    #technology    #develop    #concept

Avatar 2 is set to hit theaters more than a decade after James Cameron’s record – setting blockbuster, a delay that is partially due to the cutting – edge motion – capture technology that Cameron developed to depict a new underwater world.” 10
He’s led the development every step of the way on Avatar 2, from conception to script to hashing out the technology he wants to use.” 3
James Cameron touched down in Las Vegas to provide a first look at concept art for his forthcoming “Avatar 2” sequel, which isn’t due out until late 2021.” 13
We’re still around two years away from release, but Disney – Fox have decided to unveil four pieces of concept art for Avatar 2, the long – delayed sequel to James Cameron’s epic sci – fi fantasy movie.” 26

#Zealand    #New    #filming    #production

The release of sci – fi film Avatar 2 has been pushed back to 2015 and is set to be filmed in Peter Jackson’s production studio in New Zealand.” 26
The filming crew are placing themselves under a two week quarantine after arriving in New Zealand and before filming will start.” 5
Fortunately for Cameron, the New Zealand Film Commission announced just a few days ago that productions in the country would be allowed to start filming again this month given the reduced spread of the pandemic in New Zealand.” 7
Director James Cameron will resume filming his planned Avatar sequels in New Zealand following a halt due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.” 24
Landau told RNZ ( via IGN ) that a small production team would be returning to New Zealand to film soon, allowing the movies to progress forward.” 0

#date    #plan

In October 2010, almost a year after Avatar’s release, Cameron officially announced the two sequels, dated for 2014 and 2015, respectively.” 14
Director James Cameron said the anticipated sequel to his 2009 hit will miss the planned release date set for Christmas next year.” 18
April 5, 2012 : “Producer Jon Landau says the previously announced release dates of 2014 and 2015 for the two Avatar sequels aren’t looking likely.” 28
There is no new release date set for the film, and in fact, the previous release date was never officially confirmed by 20th Century Fox.” 26
The Avatar sequels may currently have their live – action filming on hold — though much of it was completed last year — but Cameron is working hard to meet the release date set for the first of the four planned sequels.” 23

#December    #Disney

Avatar 2 ‘on December 17, 2021;’ Avatar 3 ‘in December 2023;’ Avatar 4 ‘in December 2025; and’ Avatar 5 ‘in December 2027.” 12
We’re getting the sequel on December 17, 2021; Avatar 3 on December 22, 2023; Avatar 4 on December 19, 2025; and Avatar 5 on December 17, 2027.” 1
Avatar 2 will hit theaters on December 17, 2021, followed by Avatar 3 on December 22, 2023; then Avatar 4 on December 19, 2025; and finally Avatar 5 on December 17, 2027.” 2
The director eventually promised to release the sequels on December 17, 2021, December 22, 2023, December 19, 2025, and December 17, 2027, respectively.” 9
Avatar 2 will release on Dec. 17, 2021, Avatar 3 on Dec. 22, 2022, Avatar 4 on Dec. 19, 2025, and Avatar 5 on Dec. 17, 2027.” 0

#time    #box    #office    #record    #Endgame

The original Avatar made $ 2.4 billion at the box office and at the time it was released in 2009, held the record as the top earning movie of all time.” 3
James Cameron’s Avatar hit theaters in December 2009 and proceeded to smash box office records, bringing in a total of $ 2.7 billion worldwide.” 4
Lang himself is clearly on board, and even speculated that Avatar 2 would beat the box office record that Avengers : Endgame currently holds ( which it took from, you guessed it, Avatar ).” 29
The film’s sci – fi story proved compelling enough to propel the movie to a then – record worldwide box office take of $ 2.79 billion.” 22
Last summer, Avengers : Endgame stole Avatar’s record as the highest grossing movie of all – time, beating the James Cameron – directed 2009 movie, $ 2.797B to $ 2.79B.” 11

#James    #Titanic    #Abyss

From The Abyss to Terminator 2, Titanic to Avatar, a new James Cameron movie usually pushes the envelope when it comes to cinematic ambition.” 25
This marks her second time working with James Cameron, as you might recall Titanic, the previous highest – grossing movie of all times before Avatar came along.” 3
Kate Winslet appears in the latest behind – the – scenes glimpse at the production of James Cameron’s ambitious Avatar sequels.” 23
James Cameron took a ( very rare ) break from filming on the performance capture stage to record a message to Avatar fans!” 29
Indeed, Cameron knows a lot about filming on and under the water after The Abyss and Titanic, but Avatar 2 sees him pushing things even farther with new underwater performance – capture technology.” 22

#experience    #cinemas    #audience    #seen

Cameron also wants to revolutionize the 3D experience in cinemas again, and it’ll be particularly interesting to see how he fares here.” 25
But people’s fascination with Pandora shouldn’t be counted out – they still want to be shown something they ‘ve never seen in a movie theater before, and Cameron is determined to provide that experience for his audience.” 25
It remains to be seen just what Cameron has in store for audiences with his newest Avatar film and its underwater setting, but knowing the filmmaker, the results will be visually stunning.” 22
This will be an absolutely massive tentpole release, so there shouldn’t be a shortage of multiplexes where you can see it – as long as James Cameron doesn’t set the technical bar so high that average cinemas can’t handle the screening specs.” 25

#movie    #decade

Cameron shows up at CinemaCon in Las Vegas and announced that he’s not making just Avatar 2, 3, and 4, he’s making another movie too : Avatar 5.” 28
Cameron has been realistic about the probability of seeing the next four Avatar movies – it all depends on how Avatar 2 does at the box office.” 29
After Avatar became the highest grossing film of all time, Cameron announced that he would make not just one Avatar sequel, but four more installments in the franchise.” 9
The massive success of Avatar may have seemed like a sign that a franchise was on the way, but for some reason the movie world soon cooled on Cameron’s universe and Cameron himself was in no hurry to push out any sequels.” 22

#budget    #movies    #Deadline

But everything changed in 2017 when Cameron announced he was working on not just one Avatar sequel but four, with the four movies expected to top the $ 1 billion mark in total budget.” 22
The productions are certainly a costly endeavour, with Deadline reporting that the sequels have a combined budget of around $ 1bn ( PS820 m ) — making them some of the most expensive movies ever made.” 23
This week, Cameron and his crew started filming the installments known as the The Avatar Sequels, which will come with a budget of $ 1 billion.” 1
According to a Deadline report, the combined budget of the film is over $ 1 billion ( Rs 7500 crore ).” 12
It took us four – and – a – half years to make one movie and now we’re making four, “said Cameron.” 18

#date    #promises

Despite those delays, Cameron himself recently told Empire that there’s still a chance Avatar 2 could make its planned release date.” 22
It seems likely Cameron will be back at work on the “Avatar” sequels sooner than other major Hollywood tentpoles, which is why he’s feeling confident that the “Avatar 2” release date can still be met.” 7
But even though the uncertainty lingers, a film like Avatar 2 is apparently still right on track for its projected release date.” 9
The slow re – opening of overseas productions have given Cameron confidence that Avatar 2 can still make its December 2021 release date, and the recent release of a string of behind – the – scenes images of the set supports that.” 10
Like Peaky Blinders, No Time to Die, and A Quiet Place II, the novel coronavirus has thrown the Avatar 2 release date in doubt.” 25

#Pandora    #explore    #world    #oceans

But, we got some official hints saying that the upcoming sequel could be focussing on the exploration of the world of Pandora.” 20
We don’t need to go to another world if we want water, we’re going to go to the oceans of Pandora.” 2
All that is currently known about the upcoming movie is that the underwater world of Pandora will be explored and play an important role in the story.” 8
However, the detail that they will be forced to abandon their home and explore other regions of Pandora is the closest we ‘ve gotten to a plot point so far.” 8
We hear they’ll also be journeying beyond the forests of Pandora into underwater and volcanic environments that Cameron promises will make “you shit yourself with your mouth wide open “.” 29

#Lang    #cast    #Stephen    #Sigourney

The Avatar sequels are bringing back the original movie’s cast members Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, Stephen Lang, Sigourney Weaver, and Matt Gerald.” 10
Talking about other casts, we got a rumour report saying, Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver have signed to reprise their role for the sequel.” 20
August 8, 2017 : It’s revealed that Stephen Lang, the villain who died in the first Avatar film, will be back as the villain in ALL of the Avatar sequels.” 28
There are also surprise returns for Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang, whose characters Grace Augustine and General Quaritch both died in the first movie.” 25
Avatar 2 will see the return of many of the principle cast from the first movie, including Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana, as well as Giovanni Ribisi, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, CCH Pounder, and Matt Gerald.” 8

#time    #called    #York    #m

I ‘m making Avatar 2, Avatar 3, maybe Avatar 4, and I ‘m not going to produce other people’s movies for them, “he tells the New York Times.” 1
