Avatar, James Cameron's Academy Award-winning epic adventure from 2009, returns to theatres on September 23, 2022. The movie will be available in 4K High Dynamic Range format. To commemorate the re-release, the team has come up with a new trailer and poster.
Avatar: The Way of Water, the long-awaited sequel, will be released on December 16, 2022. The Way of Water will be followed by Avatar 3, which was shot concurrently with the new film. Avatar 4 and 5 will also begin production soon, but Cameron has expressed reservations about returning to the director's chair. In the meantime, the director will focus on other projects. Sam Worthington plays Jake Sully, Zoe Saldana plays Neytiri, Stephen Lang plays Colonel Miles Quaritch, Sigourney Weaver plays Dr Grace Augustine, and Kate Winslet plays Ronal in the upcoming sequel.
James Cameron, in an interview, stated, "I think eventually over time, I’ll want to pass the baton to a director that I trust to take over, so I can go do some other stuff that I’m also interested in. Or maybe not. I don’t know."
The filmmaker said the movie franchise gave him the canvas to talk about subjects which are important to him in real life—family, sustainability and climate. “Everything I need to say about family, about sustainability, about climate, about the natural world, the themes that are important to me in real life and my cinematic life, I can say on this canvas."
Never underestimate James Cameron. Whenever someone attempts to write him off, the prolific writer/director outperforms everyone else and produces a phenomenally successful hit. People who predicted that Titanic would be a huge flop, for example, were astounded by the film's incredible success. Similarly, those who expected Cameron to fail with Avatar, his ambitious special effects-heavy sci-fi action-thriller, were surprised to see this passion project become Cameron's chance to outshine himself and reclaim the top spot on the all-time charts. Avatar is without a doubt one of Cameron's crown jewels. Indeed, the road to success was paved with hard battles and difficulties, but Cameron triumphed.
