Avatar 2: James Cameron Screens Sequel Scenes for Crew

Legendary director James Cameron has screened several scenes near-completion for the crew of the Avatar sequels.

Cinemagoers have been awaiting the sequel to James Cameron’s blockbuster Avatar since 2008. Progress on those sequels has been made, far enough that the director was recently able to share several scenes from Avatar 2 with the crew.

Producer Jon P. Landau revealed on social media, “Jim gathered the crew to show them three scenes with near finished visual effects,” though he provided no previews of those scenes. He added, “Everyone was excited and pumped up to get back to work.”

Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 are being filmed simultaneously. Production began in February 2019, however, like virtually all other major projects, principal photography was shut down in March 2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. After a hiatus spanning several months, Landau and Cameron revealed in June that they had returned to New Zealand to continue filming. Throughout the hiatus, Weta Digital continued visual effects work remotely.

Details concerning the plot of the films are scarce. It is known that Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana have reprised their roles as Jake Sully and Neytiri, respectively. According to Cameron himself, large portions of the sequels required underwater filming, for which a new motion capture system was developed.

Written and directed by James Cameron, Avatar 2 stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Giovanni Ribisi, Joel David Moore, Edie Falco, Kate Winslet, Oona Chaplin, Vin Diesel, Michelle Yeoh, and David Thewlis. The film arrives in theaters Dec. 17, 2021, to be followed by Avatar 3 in Dec. 2023, Avatar 4 in Dec. 2025, and Avatar 5 in Dec. 2027.
