Much information about the upcoming movie hasn’t been revealed yet but one thing we know about it is that the movie will take place in Pandora almost after 12 years after its first release of the first movie.
Jake Sully has been a resident of Pandora for many years and he has finally chosen to be one of the Avatars by permanently transferring his human body into it and becoming a new leader. Jake and Neytiri then started a family and had children.
The people of Pandora will face another challenge as the mining process has returned to the planet again, opening doors of many chaoses. They have resumed their mission and have come again to take Jake and Neytiri and their family.
In the upcoming movie of Avatar, the audience will get a chance to explore Pandora widely and it will focus more on the deep part of the planet, the underwater life. We’ll also get introduced to a new species, the Metkayina people. The Metkayina people are those species that live in the oceans.
let’s take a look at what Cameron said in an interview with Vanity Fair: “It will be a natural extension of all the themes, and the characters, and the spiritual undercurrents. Basically, if you loved the first movie, you’re gonna love these movies, and if you hated it, you’re probably gonna hate these. If you loved it at the time, and you said later you hated it, you’re probably gonna love these.”
Now, let’s take a look at the official synopsis of the movie that was revealed by 20th Century Studios; “Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family, 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.”
What to expect from Avatar: The Way of Water?
James Cameron has never disappointed his fans, and we know what he is capable of.
the motions structure and the animations that Cameron did in his first movie were outstanding. This attracted many fans from around the world and the movie took no time to become the center of attention. But can fans expect the same excitement in Avatar: The Way of Water?
From the trailer, we can already see how good the animation has been. There is no doubt that the animation will not disappoint the fans because it is Cameron who that directing the movie. It’s the storyline that can be doubtful to the fans.
We’ve already discussed that the new movie will introduce us to many new characters and we’ll also get to explore the deep sides of the planet. We’ll get to witness the life of the ocean, isn’t this enough to fill the audience with excitement?
The theme of the story is based on to be family. Let’s take a look at what Weaver told about the movie in an interview with Variety; “The story is about family, about our families trying to stay together [and] the lengths to which we all go to protect each other and protect the place where we live, It’s very much based on [James Cameron’s] family and his joy in the family; and also, how vulnerable you are when you have children.”
This is a great storyline for people who have families. The theme of the story is great and the story will focus more on underwater life and we’ll get to explore more about the Na’vi people and their planet.
We can expect another great release from the movie. The cast members, the plot the storyline, and everything about the movie is picture perfect till now. the movie might be another record-breaking movie for Cameron.
