Avatar: The Way of Water a brand new still from the film has been released. Empire Magazine has been sharing footage from the highly anticipated sequel all week. This time, the post showed one of the Na’vi communing while being a large sea creature. (It looks like an animal similar to a whale.) Shocking wildlife plays a huge role in the first Avatarand it looks like director James Cameron is just letting it slide The Water Road. He also spoke to Empire about how he approached a sequel to a movie that made so much money at the box office. Much has been made of the lasting impact of this film on social media. However, a quick look at the viewing figures for the trailer and you can see that the desire to go out and see such a spectacle is very much there. See what he had to say below.
“What I said to the Fox regime at the time was, ‘I’ll do it, but we’ve got to play a bigger game here. I don’t want to just make a movie, make a movie, and make a movie. I want to tell a bigger story,” he began. This meant a comparison with a specific literary epic. “I said: Imagine a series of novels like The Lord of the Rings they existed and we adapt them”. Now, that was great in theory, but then I had to create the horrible novels to adapt it from.”

“I had to think long and hard if I wanted to make another one Avatar film, because it was kind of ours to lose,” Cameron continues. “When you’ve done something that was so transcendent in terms of success, do you really want to try to do it again? There is a lot of pressure on it. I thought about it for a good two years before we finally made a deal.”
Here’s how Disney describes it Avatar: The Way of Water: “Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri and their children), the troubles that follow them, the lengths they manage. keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive and the tragedies they endure. Directed by Cameron and produced by Cameron and Jon Landau, the film stars Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement and Kate Winslet.”
