While Avatar: The Way of Watersequel to Avatar from James Cameroncontinues its successful run in theaters around the world (already exceeds $900 million in the global box office), Disney’s 20th Century Studios shares more promotional material, with a new look behind the scenes, in which we see how it is made and works the “magic” of the motion capture work done in The Way of Waterwhich we later see reflected on the big screen with a “Blue [que] it has never looked more beautiful.”
The behind the scenes is found at the end of the note.
In the meantime, and in case you haven’t seen the film yet, we tell you that TWOW Its plot is set more than a decade after the events of the original film.and tells the story of Jake, Neytiri, and their family:
“The Sully family endures danger, battles to the death and tragedy, throughout the film.”
The one titled in Mexico and the rest of the Spanish-speaking territory of Latin America, Avatar: The Path of Waterhas a cast made up of the return of Zoe Saldaña, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, CCH Pounder, Joel David Moore, Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Langand the new additions to the cast, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement, Oona Chaplin, Michelle Yeoh, y Kate Winslet.
A curious fact about the production is that much of the return to the fictional planet of Pandora takes place in the planet’s oceans. Cameron developed new technology for filming motion capture scenes underwater, something never before achieved. But the underwater sequences aren’t all movie magic, as they Weaver, 70, held her breath underwater for six minutes at a time while filming, while Winslet held her for almost eight minutes, breaking the record set by Tom Cruise.
Cameron directs the feature film and produces with Jon Landau.
Cameron simultaneously filmed a third film, which is scheduled to hit theaters in December 2023. And as soon as those films are done with post-production, Cameron and company will begin filming. “Avatar 4” and “Avatar 5” one after another.
“Blue has never looked more beautiful”
