New Set Photos Reveal Underwater Scenes Being Filmed for Avatar Sequels. 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.
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?!
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, but production delays may affect these dates.
