One of the many trailers showing with Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” was a special first look at “Avatar: The Way of Water.” The sequel to James Cameron‘s record-setting film, it’s been 13 years since we’ve seen the Na’vi and their homeworld of Pandora.
Returning cast include Sam Worthington as Jake Sully, Zoe Saldana as Neytiri, Stephen Lang, and Sigourney Weaver (albeit in a new role). New faces include Kate Winslet as Ronal, Michelle Yeoh as Dr. Karina Mogue, and Oona Chaplin as Varang. Others joining the cast are Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, and Jemaine Clement.
“The Way of Water” will focus on the Sully family, including their children, as they explore Pandora. When an ancient threat resurfaces, Jake must fight a difficult war against the humans.
The first “Avatar” is being remastered for picture and sound for a release in September. “Avatar: The Way of Water” will hit theaters on December 16th, 2022.
