Nearly thirteen years after the events of Avatar which came out in 2009, audiences will finally return to one of the most breathtaking cinematic worlds to ever grace the silver screen. Avatar 2: The Way Of Water is the long-anticipated sequel to its prequel film that fans all over the world have been eagerly waiting for. With innovative new filming techniques and a universal theme, it has the potential to be even more prolific than the original film. The film is scheduled to release theatrically worldwide on 16 December 2022. 

Avatar director James Cameron has revealed that the upcoming sequel will be so long that it’s likely people will have to ‘get up and go pee’ during it. He also had some kind choice words for those who might complain about the movie’s length. Cameron took aim at the binge-watchers among us who contradict their own viewing behaviors with their complaints about longer films. 

He said, "I don't want anybody whining about length when they sit and binge-watch television for eight hours. I can almost write this part of the review. 'The agonizingly long three-hour movie...' It's like, give me a f*****g break! I've watched my kids sit and do five one-hour episodes in a row."

Apart from the long-awaited sequel, Cameron has planned three other films in the Avatar saga. In a recent interview, however, Cameron explained that he would be ready to pass the torch to another director following the third Avatar film. "The Avatar films themselves are kind of all-consuming", he said.

The upcoming sequel is an epic sci-fi film directed by James Cameron and produced by 20th Century Studios. Cast members Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Giovanni Ribisi, and Matt Gerald reprise their roles from the original film, and although her character died in the first film, Sigourney Weaver will be returning to voice one of Jake and Neytiri's children. The film also has new cast members including Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Michelle Yeoh, Jemaine Clement, and Vin Diesel.
