‘Avatar 2’ Poster, Plot Details, and Movie Title Potentially Leaked Online. Though production is currently at a stand-still, the production team for the Avatar sequels have still been showing photos from the set that give us a little insight into the direction of the films, but some have fans even more curious about what paths the story may take.
Director James Cameron has shared that the stories will not be directly tied to one another, so you won’t have to watch the films in order to understand what is going on in the story, but he did share that a potential title for the film is Avatar: The Way of Water, some time ago. Well, it appears that either a very dedicated fan created a convincing movie poster for the sequel or somehow the actual movie poster was leaked online, giving us the films title. Check out the poster below:
Recently, the official Avatar page on Twitter shared some photos taken on set before production was frozen of director James Cameron giving direction to actors filming a mysterious underwater sequence for the films. “From the set of the sequels: [James Cameron] directing the actors before they dive underwater for performance capture. Fun fact: That layer of white on the water’s surface is comprised of floating balls that prevent lights from interfering with filming underwater.”

It is unknown which of the four sequels will feature the footage taken from this film set, as all four movies are being filmed and produced simultaneously, but the studio did share a little tidbit of information regarding how filmmakers keep too much light from ruining any shots. A good portion of the film tank is filled with pingpong balls to help with the lighting effect underwater! Pretty cool, right?!
It was also revealed that Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Vin Diesel, and Edie Falco have been added to the cast of the sequels, with Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, and Stephen Lang reprising their roles. Weaver and Lang will be reprising their roles for flashback sequences since their characters died in the first film.
Not much is known about the new characters, but we do know that Kate Winslet will be playing a Na’vi who lives underwater. We also know the sequels will follow the children of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) as they explore other aspects of Pandora.
We love learning new and creative techniques in filmmaking and can not wait to see the Avatar sequels in theaters! Currently, the films are slated to release in December 2021, 2023, 2025, 2027, and production delays are not expected to change these release dates. Be sure to follow Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney!
