In the second movie in the series, Stephen Lang's villain Colonel Quaritch makes a comeback and is once more at conflict with Pandora native Neytiri (Zoe Saldaa) and her companion Jake Sully. Colonel Quaritch appears to have been restored through a Na'vi avatar form (Sam Worthington).
In the recently released teaser, which takes place more than ten years after the first movie's 2154 setting, Jake and Neytiri can be seen cuddling up as a family. The couple's Na'vi children, Neteyam (Jamie Flatters), Lo'ak (Britain Dalton), Tuktirey (Trinity Bliss), and Kiri, are given a closer look (Sigourney Weaver, returning to the franchise in a new role).
The Good House" director Sigourney Weaver told Variety after a screening of her movie, "The story is about family, about our families fighting to stay together [and] the lengths we all go to defend each other and protect the place where we live." "It's based a lot on [James Cameron's] family and his joy in the family, as well as how vulnerable you are when you have kids."
Kate Winslet, Michelle Yeoh, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, Edie Falco, and Jemaine Clement are franchise newcomers in addition to Joel David Moore.
The film's performers trained with specialists to be able to shoot lengthy takes of sequences underwater without returning to the surface for air, and the trailer is full of visually breathtaking ocean footage that also serves to highlight their incredible breath-holding abilities. Saldaa claimed in an interview from earlier this year that her personal best for holding her breath underwater was five minutes.
Similar to his "Avatar" film from 2009, director James Cameron also wrote, produced, and edited "Avatar: The Way of Water." Peter M. Tobyansen and Jon Landau are the producers. Shane Salerno, Josh Friedman, Amanda Silver, and Rick Jaffa all contributed to the writing of the story.
