What is the release date for Avatar: The Way to Water?

For fans of Avatar, the wait must have been long, very long… Thirteen years have passed since James Cameron’s cult science fiction film, Avatar, was a real hit in the cinema. As his film reached the top of the box office, the Canadian director announced that sequels were planned and that the second part of Avatar would be released in … 2014. After many delays, Avatar: the way of the water will finally see the daylight. However, we will have to wait a little longer, or the end of the year, to discover this new chapter of Avatar since the December 14, 2022.


At a time when VOD is becoming more and more important, this question is entirely legitimate. But Avatar: The Way of the Water, like its illustrious predecessor, is a film that can be enjoyed in 3D. After all, it is thanks to this technology that the first film of 2009 had put a real visual slap in the face. And to fully benefit from the magic of 3D, you have to go to dark rooms. Avatar: The Way of Water will be released exclusively At Cinemai.e. mid-December 2022.


Avatar: the way of water is the second installment of the Avatar saga, launched thirteen years ago by director James Cameron. It’s simply the direct sequel to the first film released in 2009. As a reminder, Avatar saw Jake Sully, a former marine in a wheelchair, go on a mission to the planet Pandora on behalf of an organization that exploits a very rare mineral that is supposed to solve the energy crisis on Earth. Because the planet’s atmosphere is toxic to humans, they have created avatars, biological bodies adapted to life on Pandora that they bind their minds to to move around safely. Jake thus regains the use of his legs. He is then entrusted with the mission of infiltrating the Na’vi by opposing the exploitation of their planet. Finally, Jake bonds with these people, and in particular with Neytiri, and sides with the natives of Pandora.


What is the synopsis of Avatar: The Way of the Water?

The plot takes place ten years after the 2009 film. We reunite with Jake Sully and his partner Neytiri, and they have not been alone since they became parents. Happy days go by among the Na’vi, but obviously they won’t last. The Resources Development Administration, the malicious organization of the original film, is returning to Pandora. Jake and his family are forced into exile and travel to the rocks to start a new life. There they discover another clan, the Metkayina.

Who is making Avatar: The Way to Water?

The director of Titanic, Aliens and the first two Terminators, James Cameron, sit back in the director’s chair. After all, it is he who is at the origin of the first film and who created the universe of the Na’vi. In addition to directing, he also wrote the screenplay. After so much waiting, there’s no doubt that James Cameron will have put all of his creativity to work on Avatar: The Way to Water. In 2009, the Canadian director had dethroned his own film Titanic at the worldwide box office, grossing $ 2.847 billion with Avatar. Will it reproduce the same feat with this second part?


Who is working on Avatar: The Way of Water?

Most of the creators of this new Avatar are veterans who have already worked on the first film. We find Jon Landau (Titanic, Alita: Battle Angel) et Peter M. Tobyansena (Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book) to production. Screenwriter Josh Friedman (Terminator: Dark Fate) assisted James Cameron for this new opera. As for the special effects, they are developed by the legendary studio Weta FX (The Lord of the Rings). The soundtrack should have been signed by the composer of the first film, James Horner, who sadly passed away in 2015. So it’s Simon Franglen (The Magnificent Seven) who takes up the torch again. He had previously worked on Avatar and is composing new music on Avatar 2 as well as reusing James Horner tracks.

Sigourney Weaver (Alien) also returns, but in a still unknown role. We will also discover new faces with in mind Kate Winslet (Titanic, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Michelle Yeoh (Tiger and dragon, Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings) e vin Diesel (Fast & Furious, Riddick). We still don’t know what their respective roles will be in this new installment of the saga.


What future for the Avatar saga?

One thing is certain, James Cameron is not done with the Na’vi! He is not one, nor two, but good three other films that are in preparation! The third film is scheduled for 2024. Filming took place simultaneously with that of Avatar: the way of water. There seems therefore no reason to justify a possible delay. As for the other two parts, we can expect them for 2026 and 2028. Production has already started. What will be the plot of these future films? We will have to wait to find out.
