Avatar: The Way of Water 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.”
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.
Cameron directs the feature film and produces with Jon Landau.
Cameron’s 2009 film pioneered 3D movie viewing technology, and set the record as the highest-grossing film of all time. A relaunch could increase the total gross of Avatarwhich lost the top global box office spot briefly to Avengers: Endgame before retrieving it in March 2021.
Cameron simultaneously filmed a third movie, which is scheduled to hit theaters in December 2023. And as soon as those movies finish post-production, Cameron and the company will start shooting “Avatar 4” and “Avatar 5” one after the other. .
These days it was confirmed that Cameron’s film will last “around 3 hours and 10 minutes”, almost half an hour longer than the original tape.
