It has been no secret to the whole world about the planning and delaying of the second installment of the 2009 record-breaking movie, Avatar. However, James Cameron (director) has promised that there will be no further delay and hence, the production and shoot will start prominently.
He says, “Avengers: Endgame is a demonstrable proof that people will still go to movie theaters.”. He states that he was skeptical if people still liked to go to the movie theaters to watch something ‘with a bunch of strangers’. Moreover, he has planned four sequels in total, estimated to run until 2027 if Avatar 2 is successful.
What will Avatar 2 be about? Plot:
The complete plot of the film unquestionably cannot be disclosed but there are bits and pieces that have been shared by Jon Landau. The producer had released a picture of two human ships on his social media when they were shooting in the month of May 2020. Landau has also been quoted saying that the water plays a huge part in the movie.
Cameroon has promised that the next movie in the franchise will take us from the forests of Pandora into underwater and volcanic environments. Amazing underwater scenes will be filmed. Colonel Miles Quaritch, who died in the Avatar 1 finale, will back to life. Not only that, but he is also going to the main villain of the four movies.
However, the movie will now apparently focus on Sully and Neytiri’s children. The sources also suggest that Sully and Neytiri will have to leave their home and explore the rest of Pandora with their children. Landau further announced that all the four movies will be revolving around the Sully family yet they will be standalone movies.
Who is the cast of Avatar 2?
The core cast from the original film is all on contract therefore we will get to watch them on the big screen when the movie is finally released. In addition, there are ample of new and well-known faces who are all set to join on board. Sigourney Weaver will return.
Some of the widely recognized actors to be a part of the film are – Kate Winslet, Vin Diesel, and Edie Falco among the few. We’re also informed that the makers are bringing back Colonel Miles Quaritch played by Stephen Lang and Dr. Grace Augustine played by Sigourney Weaver.
Now, the movie will purely focus on Na’vi Jake Sully’s children. Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri have three kids, two sons, and a daughter. The oldest son named Neteyam will be played by Jamie Flatters, Britain Dalton will play the middle child- Lo’ak and the youngest is a daughter, Tukitirey, portrayed by Trinity Bliss.
CCH Pounder will back as Neytiri’s mother Mo’at, Matt Gerald as Corporal Lyle Wainfleet, Oona Chaplin, and Cliff Curtis will join the cast. Edie Falco will play a new character named General Ardmore. Star Trek: Discovery’s Michelle Yeoh will play scientist Dr. Karina Mogue while Jemaine Clement will portray marine biologist Dr. Ian Garvin.
Avatar Sequel Title: What will Avatar 2 be called?
The official name for the second movie in the series hasn’t been announced as of now. However, there are certain potential names for the movies but could be changed in the future: ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’, ‘Avatar: The Seed Bearer’, ‘Avatar: The Tulkun Rider’ and ‘Avatar: The Quest for Eywa’. These are subject to change.
New Technologies Being Employed in Avatar 2
One of the many reasons behind Avatar’s success was the technology used to create a fictional world and human-like beings with it. Supposedly, Jon Landau has spoken to someone Douglas Trumbull about a new film process that could combine 4K resolution, 3D and high frame rates together.
The process is difficult but if this technology to be made, a whole new record would break. The world of Pandora will actually come to life with great vividness. (check: Family Guy Renews For Season 19: Check Release Date, Trailer, Cast and Last Installment On FOX.)
Whatever the scenario may be, Avatar fandom is ecstatic to know all the details about the film that not only broke records but also stole their hearts with an unusual script and magnificent special effects. (check: Adult Swim’s Tuca & Bertie Revived For Season 2.)

Reports suggest James Cameron along with the producer of the film Jon Landau, has flown back to New Zealand to resume the shooting after the country announced its success in fighting back the pandemic.
