It’s been 13 years, but 20th Century Studios has finally released a teaser trailer and images from James Cameron’s Avatar 2, set to release December 16th. Titled Way Avatar: The Way of Water, it is the sequel to the highest-grossing film of all time.
The Way of Water will star the original film’s cast members, including Zoe Saldana as Neytiri, Sigourney Weaver in a new role and Sam Worthington as Jake Sully. Joining the cast are Kate Winslet as Ronal, Michelle Yeoh as Dr. Karina Mogue and Oona Chaplin as Varang, among others. The new film picks up where the last left off, with Sully and Neytiri building their family on the planet of Pandora and fighting new threats to its burgeoning civilization.
Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure.
To whet audiences’ appetites, the studio will re-release the first Avatar in theaters on September 23rd.
