A few weeks ago we reported that "Avatar" director James Cameron was not at all satisfied with the status quo caused by the pandemic. Due to massive restrictions, the production of his sequel "Avatar 2", which is scheduled to be released at the end of 2021, stagnated. A few days ago, producer Jon Landau announced that his return to New Zealand was imminent, so that work on the film could finally be finalized. The goal, of course, is to maintain the production start as good as possible. According to the New Zealand radio station Radio New Zealand, a smaller team led by Landau will go to the island for the time being to restart production. They will then serve the two-week quarantine together.
So far so good, but Jon Landau didn't miss the chance to reveal some more details about the story of the "Avatar" successor. the story revolves around the family of Jake and Neytiri, already known from the first part. According to Landau, they are forced to leave their homes in the second part. Afterwards they will explore different regions of Pandora, including an underwater world. This is also in line with the pictures of "Avatar 2", which were published a few months ago and give a good foretaste of the upcoming, impressive regions of Pandora.
"Avatar 2" is expected to be released in us-cinemas on December 17, 2021, and the sequels "Avatar 3, 4 and 5" will be released every two years.
