A new trailer for ‘Avatar 2’ has been released ahead of the film’s December 16 release date, and it is absolutely epic. Everything you need to know about ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ is right here.
When Avatar was released in theaters on December 18, 2009, it became a worldwide phenomenon. The sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water, has high expectations, but the footage so far has exceeded all of our wildest dreams. On November 22, a new trailer was released that takes place more than a decade after the first film. The Sullys face new challenges ahead, but they remain united.
James Cameron’s first Avatar became the highest-grossing film of all time, surpassing Cameron’s other film, Titanic. Avatar held the top spot until Avengers: Endgame in 2019, when it was reclaimed by a Chinese re-release in March 2021. The box office total for the 2009 film is now more than $2.9 billion. Avatar’s reign is also far from over.
Following the success of Avatar, four sequels have been announced. Fans have been waiting for Avatar: The Way Of Water for over a decade, and the film is finally here. TheHollywoodTalks brings you the most recent information on the cast, filming, plot, and more.

The Sequel To Avatar
The first Avatar film follows Jake Sully, a paraplegic Marine sent to the moon Pandora. He soon finds himself torn between obeying orders and protecting Pandora’s people. The film builds to an epic conclusion in which Neytiri kills Colonel Miles Quaritch and saves Jake’s life. For the first time, she sees his human body. Jake ends up staying on Pandora to be with Neytiri, and his Na’vi body is permanently transferred to him.
Avatar 2 Release Date: When Is It Coming Out?
Avatar: The Way Of Water will be released in theaters on December 16, 2022. According to The Hollywood Talks Reporter, Avatar: The Way of Water has a running time of around 3 hours and 10 minutes.
The sequel to Avatar was supposed to be released on December 17, 2021. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Avatar 2 and the subsequent sequels were delayed. Avatar 3, Avatar 4, and Avatar 5 will be released on December 20, 2024, December 18, 2026, and December 22, 2028, respectively.
All four sequels are directed, produced, and co-written by James Cameroon.
BBC News leaked the titles for the Avatar sequels, Avatar: The Way of Water, Avatar: The Seed Bearer, Avatar: The Tulkun Rider, and Avatar: The Quest for Eywa. In 2019, Avatar director James Cameron clarified the sequel titles. “Those are among the titles under consideration.” And no final decisions have been made,” he explained to Entertainment Tonight.
The first teaser trailer, which was released on May 9, 2022, has been viewed over 148 million times. The video showed a happy Jake Sully and Neytiri starting a family. There were also glimpses of CCH Pounder as Mo’at, Giovanni Ribisi as Parker Selfridge, Joel David Moore as Norm Spellman, and Dileep Rao as Dr. Max Patel. In the sequel, Kate Winslet makes her debut as Ronal, a new character.
Avatar 2 Trailer
The official trailer was released on November 2nd and has received over 38 million views. It provided a more in-depth look at The Way of the Water, including the Sully family. The most recent, and most likely final, trailer was released on November 22. It lasts two minutes and depicts more action and adventure for Jake Sully in the film.
Avatar 2 was “very f**king” expensive to make, according to director James Cameron. Avatar 2 must “be the third or fourth highest-grossing film in history” to even break even, according to James. “That is your limit. That is your break even point.”
Why has the production of Avatar 2 taken so long?
The COVID pandemic has slowed the production of Avatar 2. However, director James Cameron had planned to release Avatar 2 as early as 2014. Production was repeatedly postponed until it finally began in 2017. In a lengthy message to fans in July 2020, the director addressed the sequel’s latest delay.
“As many of you are aware, we were forced to delay the start of the live action filming we are currently doing in New Zealand due to COVID-19.” Most of you are probably unaware that the pandemic is still preventing us from resuming most of our virtual production work on Los Angeles stages. That work is equally important to the films as the live action work.
“Prior to the COVID-19, everything was on track to bring you the first sequel in December of 2021,” he added. Unfortunately, due to the impact of the pandemic on our schedule, we are no longer able to meet that deadline. No one is more disappointed than I am about the delay. But I’m encouraged by our cast’s outstanding performances and Weta Digital’s extraordinary work in bringing Pandora and the film’s characters to life.”
Avatar 2 Cast
Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington will reprise their roles as Neytiri and Jake Sully. CCH Pounder will return as Mo’at, as will Giovanni Ribisi as Parker Selfridge, Joel David Moore as Norm Spellman, and Dileep Rao as Dr. Max Patel. Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, and Matt Gerald will all return in Avatar 2, despite the fact that their characters died in the first Avatar film.
Avatar 2 will introduce several new characters. Kate Winslet, who worked with James on Titanic, plays a Na’vi named Ronal. General Ardmore of the RDA will be played by Edie Falco, marine biologist Dr. Ian Garvin will be played by Jermaine Clement, Tonowari will be played by Cliff Curtis, and Dr. Karina Mogue will be played by Michelle Yeoh. In mystery roles, Oona Chaplin and Vin Diesel have also joined the cast. We do know that Oona’s character’s name is Varang.
The sequel will also feature younger cast members. Members of Sully’s family and children from another Na’vi clan known as Metkayina are among the cast members. They live on massive oceanic atoll reefs ruled by Tonowari. Britain Dalton, Filip Geljo, Jamie Flatters, Bailey Bass, Trinity Bliss, Jack Champion, and Duane Evans Jr. are among the young cast members. Javier “Spider” Socorro, a human teenager born at the Hell’s Gate military complex, will be played by Jack.
Avatar 2 Plot
Plot details for the first Avatar sequel have been scarce, but there is some information available. The Sully family will be the main focus of Avatar 2. “This is the story of the Sully family and what it takes to keep a family together,” RNZ’s Jon Landau explained. “In this film, Jake and Neytiri have a family; they are forced to leave their home, and they travel around Pandora, spending a lot of time on the water, around the water, and in the water.” Why, I believe, do people seek entertainment today more than ever before? I believe it is to escape, to escape the world we live in, and to escape the other pressures they have in their lives.”
According to the official synopsis, “Avatar: The Way of Water” begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their children), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure.
Avatar 2 will include numerous underwater scenes. While filming Avatar 2, Kate Winslet broke Tom Cruise’s record for the longest underwater breath-hold in a feature film. Kate outpaced Tom by more than a minute. “To play that role in Avatar, I had to learn how to free-dive, which was incredible.” My longest breath hold was seven minutes and 14 seconds, which is insane.”
Avatar 3 Release Date
The release date for Avatar 3 is currently set for December 20, 2024. The second sequel began filming alongside Avatar 2 in 2017. In November 2018, James revealed in a Twitter video that the principal cast of Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 — Sam [Worthington], Zoe [Saldana], Sigourney [Weaver], Stephen Lang, and Kate Winslet — had wrapped.
During the 2020 Austrian World Summit in September 2020, James revealed that he was “sort of 95% complete on Avatar 3.” He mentioned that the team was working to complete the remaining live-action filming. The director admitted that COVID-19 slowed production by “about four and a half months,” and that the pandemic “hit us like it hit everybody, hard.”
Avatar 2 is already one of the most anticipated upcoming films. Like its predecessor, the film is expected to be a box office smash. TheHollywoodTalks will keep you updated on the latest Avatar sequel news.
