Fans are set to revisit the world of Pandora in James Cameron's Avatar when the sequel currently being called Avatar 2 will arrive in theatres next year. The first epic science fiction Avatar film released in 2010 went on to become the highest-grossing film of all time, with the record being eventually broken by Avengers: Endgame in 2019. As of now, Avatar 2 will be coming out on December 16, 2022, followed by Avatar 3 on December 20, 2024, while Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 are planned for releases in 2026 and 2028. 

The Avatar franchise will consist of four sequels and fans are now getting a short glimpse of what Cameron's been up to since he began working on the upcoming films in 2017. Recently, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker sat down for an interview with Entertainment Weekly (EW) and teased concept art, including behind-the-scenes pictures from the film's production. From the Avatar 2 concept art, we get an idea of how Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and his family are now residing in a coastal region. Cameron told EW, "It sounds kind of nuts, the process. I mean, if Avatar hadn't made so much damn money, we'd never do this – because it's kind of crazy." 

Speaking about Avatar 2, producer Jon Landau explained that a big portion of the film will take place underwater, with the actors getting trained in scuba diving, while also stating that a lot of the motion-capture work was shot in enormous water tanks. He said, "Ultimately, the sequels are a story about family, and the lengths parents will go through to keep that family together and keep them safe. I always say that Jim's movies have universal themes – and really, there's no more universal theme than family." Landau added, "One of my favorite memories was we had this circular tank, maybe 40 feet wide, with a big glass portal in it. I walked by one day and I see Kate Winslet walking on the bottom of the tank." He further explained, "She's walking towards me and sees me in the window, and she just waves, gets to the end of the wall, turns around, and walks all the way back."
