Avatar 2 is a sequel to the 2013 movie. Director James Cameron will return to helm the project. The movie will once again feature Sigourney Weaver and Kate Winslet in prominent roles. Production on the sequel is expected to begin in February 2019 in New Zealand. It’s still unclear when the movie will hit theaters.
James Cameron returns as director
After the success of the 2009 sci-fi epic adventure, Avatar, James Cameron will return as director of the sequel. The sequel is set in the year 2154 and will continue the story of paraplegic Marine Jake Sully in the world of Pandora, home to the Navi alien race.
The new movie will bring back many of the original cast from the first film. Kate Winslet, who played Neytiri in the first film, will play the same role in this sequel. The original cast also includes CCH Pounder and Matt Gerald, who will return as the heroes and antagonists. Dileep Rao and Joel David Moore will also return to their roles in the movie. The cast of the sequel has also expanded, with new additions like Kate Winslet and Jermaine Clement.
Avatar 2 filming started in 2017. Filming is a mix of live-action and motion capture and is 95% complete. It is expected to be released on December 16, 2022. James Cameron has been busy working on the sequels for the past few years and has hired a team of writers for all the sequels.
Sigourney Weaver reprises her role as a Na’vi
Sigourney Weaver is returning to the world of Pandora for the sequel to the movie Avatar. After a brief absence in the first movie, she’s back to play a new character: a Na’vi. This time around, she’ll be playing Kiri, the teenage daughter of Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana).
While Sigourney Weaver is no longer a teenager, she still looks spry and has plenty of body control. However, she hasn’t been acting with the youthful physicality she had a few years ago. Fortunately, advanced technology allows for a realistic look at her character. Weaver learned how to free-dive to make the underwater scenes in Avatar 2 look real.
In the new film, Weaver will play the teenage daughter of a pair of rebels. She also played a teenage human character in the first movie. The character is called Kiri and she’s an adopted child of Jake and Neytiri.
Kate Winslet reprises her role as Ronal
James Cameron’s acclaimed film Avatar blew audiences away with its dazzling visual effects and enthralling storyline, and now the sequel is nearly complete. Kate Winslet, who starred in the first film, is reprising her role as Ronal, the co-leader of the Metkayina tribe and a member of the Na’vi race. She will once again team up with Cameron, who directed the first film, which opened in 2011.
Avatar 2 will also feature the same main cast from the original movie, including Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, and Stephen Lang. Zoe Saldana will return as Neytiri, and Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch, the film’s main villain. Other notable actors returning to the franchise include Kate Winslet and CCH Pounder, who will reprise their roles as the Na’vi princess Mo’at and a human-turned-Na’vi named Jake Sully.
Filming in New Zealand begins in February of 2019
Filming for Avatar 2 in New Zealand begins in February of 2019. Filming of the film will occur simultaneously with Avatar 3 in New Zealand. It will be the second sequel to the critically acclaimed 2009 film. James Cameron is returning to the country for filming and will continue working on the sequel. The sequel is due out in December 2022.
James Cameron’s team has bypassed quarantine and will remain in New Zealand for months, allowing the production to continue. The new quarantine and lockdown measures are designed to prevent the spread of disease to the crew and to protect the health of the cast and crew. The New Zealand government has approved new health and safety production protocols for the film.
Disney+ release date announced
Despite being the best-selling movie of all time, the first Avatar film hasn’t been brought back to Disney+ yet. However, the upcoming release date of Avatar 2 may give fans a hint as to when the sequel will be released. The first movie is expected to run for eight weeks in theaters, so it is likely that Disney will bring the sequel to the streaming service sometime in early spring 2023.
Avatar 2 is the second installment in the Avatar series and will be set about a decade after the first film. The sequel will feature returning actors and characters, as well as new additions to the cast. James Cameron wrote the script for the sequel and is producing the movie alongside Jon Landau.
