Wednesday morning, as a part of Walt Disney Studios’ CinemaCon presentation, Avatar producer Jon Landau presented the forthcoming teaser trailer for the long-awaited first (of many) sequels to the 2009 blockbuster, entitled Avatar: The Way Of Water. In fact, it’s about an „Avatar family” of movies. There are plans for Avatars 3, 4, and 5. Landau emphasized the standalone nature of the films, as well as their interconnectivity, around a central, known theme which had the initially success. “With the first Avatar, we set out to push the limits of the big screen. With the new Avatar films, we’re pushing those limits even farther with 3D, with high dynamic range, with high frame rate, higher resolution, and a much greater reality in our visual effects.” For fans, another announcement, about the movie timeline, is also important: „I hope when you see the film in December that you’ll agree.”
Avatar: The Way of Water is expected to be in theaters on December 16, 2022. In fact, to refresh audiences’memories, new work is being done on the original Avatar. Remastered, it will be re-released to theaters on September 23. The clip of Avatar 2 wil be also available online. Directed by James Cameron and produced by Cameron and Jon Landau, the film stars Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement, Giovanni Ribisi, and Kate Winslet.
