It’s been 13 years since the first trip to the world of Pandora, but what is being heard about the new movie “Avatar: Waterway” makes us think that Cameron’s new movie will be more exciting than the original movie.
The second sequel of Avatar, which the makers of the film had a decade to prepare, must be a unique and shocking film in its own way, because until now the level of expectations of the viewers regarding this film has greatly increased, and therefore this film must have more diverse stories and excitement. to include more motivation to attract the positive opinion of the audience.
“Avatar”, that is, the same movie that became a model for modern science-fiction movies, since 2009 has been considered as a pioneering movie that deals with important themes and issues such as environmental issues and humanity, and because of this, it was able to attract attention. Attract the audience. Although the original film managed to become a model for 21st century filmmaking, what we hear about “Avatar 2” suggests that there is a much bigger and weirder story coming than you might imagine.
James Cameron stated in 2006 that if the first Avatar movie was successful, he would start working on its sequels. After the movie “Avatar” broke box office records and went beyond what many people expected at the time, work on the next sequels began, and “Avatar 2” is definitely considered the first sequel of this series. This film was supposed to be released in 2014 and 2015, but in 2022, the first trailer of this sequel was released. The sequel, which is called “Avatar of Water”, is scheduled to be released in December 2022 and will reportedly tell the story of the Na’vi after their conflict with the RDA.
Considering that in the previous film, the actors of the nurses played the roles and breathtaking images and incredible technology were used to create the alien world of Pandora, James Cameron should go beyond to create a valuable and exciting sequel and something beyond what was seen in the film. The previous one was depicted to think. The movie “Avatar: The Way of Water” is being made by one of the biggest filmmakers in the world of Hollywood. This means that the same director who made films like “Alien”, “Terminator” and “Titanic” will definitely become one of the most ambitious films of this director. This film can definitely surprise the audience due to the modern technology of filmmaking, the group of talented actors that are increasing day by day, and the many stories it has to tell.
Sigourney Weaver as Carrie in Avatar 2: Waterway
Perhaps one of the most iconic actors who has acted in many science-fiction films is Sigourney Weaver. After the actor was able to shine in James Cameron’s other sci-fi films, many audiences hoped that Weaver would be alive and return to play the role in Avatar 2. Certainly, his character is such that he can increase the exciting stories of the movie “Avatar: Waterway” and attract more audiences to this sequel.
In the movie “Avatar”, Sigourney Weaver originally played the role of Dr. Grace Augustine, a famous alien scientist who was one of the masterminds behind the Avatar program. Dying after sustaining his fatal injuries and unable to return to his avatar body through the Tree of Souls, his memories were collected by Pandora’s interconnected ecosystem and later used to unite the planet against the RDA. After a sequel was announced, many believed that Sigourney Weaver would return as Dr. Augustine in Avatar 2.
However, it was revealed that this time she will be playing a Navi named Carrie, the adopted daughter of protagonists Jake Sully and Nitiri. His choice for this role has definitely left the audience very confused as they don’t know what role Carrey will play in the film and whether Dr. Augustine will somehow return for the second sequel. Regardless, a talented actress like Sigourney Weaver, who returned to the sci-fi genre after her appearance in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, can definitely play a prominent role in shining Pandora’s legacy.
Quaritch, played by Stephen Long, is set to return as a Na’vi
Of course, the negative character of a movie should be a unique character, and Stephen Long was able to become the man everyone hated in the movie “Avatar” as Colonel Miles Quaritch. Unlike Sigourney Weaver, who is set to return to the film as a new character, Quaritch seems to want to finish her unfinished business and find a new way to continue her journey on Pandora. While this doesn’t seem that strange in James Cameron’s films, questions are still being raised about how a character who is apparently dead is supposed to return to this film.
The RDA security commander on Pandora, Colonel Miles Quaritch, escalated the conflict between the tribes by attacking the Amatikaya tribe. In fact, this character, played by Long, was killed by an arrow while trying to divide Pandora’s navies and during an attack on the Tree of Spirits. However, thanks to the Avatar program, Quaritch was resurrected as a blank avatar with Quaritch’s human memories implanted in his brain. Now Colonel Quaritch and the RDA forces are preparing for another war on Pandora as they now have a new colony and weapons facility and can prepare for the next war.
RDA returns with more weapons and avatar soldiers
The overuse of technology has long been one of Avatar’s biggest hallmarks. Although RDA’s super powerful weapons are fictional weapons and have no roots in reality, the technology shown in this movie is as attractive as the alien world of Pandora and its special and unique characters and pleases the viewers. As it turns out that the people of Pandora are capable of far more than the RDA ever imagined, it’s not only exciting but terrifying to imagine what the RDA will do to make up for their past losses. .
With Obtonium and Pandora’s countless resources, which are considered the most valuable resources in the world, RDA will put many people at risk to get to these resources. In an interview with John Landau, the film’s producer, he stated that the army will return to Pandora with a much more armed fleet to reclaim the valuable asset they lost. The sequel to “Avatar: Waterway”, which tells the story of a new colony called Bridgehead and an ominous 3D printing factory that threatens the future of our planet, will definitely have more and more exciting battles and will witness more strange sequences and We will be more exciting.
Ronal, played by Kate Winslet, is an action hero
In Avatar 2, Kate Winslet reunites with Cameron after two decades. She, who appeared as Rose in James Cameron’s Titanic, will play the role of a Navi for the first time in Pandora. This film, in which the actors of nurses are supposed to play roles, is supposed to become a sequel that will shine even more than the first film, as Cameron expects, and considering the fact that this director has been working on the story of the film for 13 years. Such a thing is not out of the question.
In Avatar: The Last Airbender, Winslet plays Ronal, a loyal and fearless leader who leads one of the Na’vi clans. She values her family and her home and will fight to the death for the future of Pandora and the people of the Metkaina tribe if necessary. Described as an all-action movie, Avatar: The Last Airbender has the potential to pump up the adrenaline rush of the audience and turn into a full-on thriller. In addition, considering Rose’s emotional and unique performance in the movie “Titanic”, we can definitely expect that Cameron’s collaboration with her again will turn into a wonderful and timeless film that will shine like Cameron’s other works.
Computer special effects used in the movie Avatar 2
When the first movie “Avatar” was shown in 2009, the land of Pandora, which was visually distinct and impressive, was able to attract the attention of the audience and critics because at that time, such mass special effects were not used in any movie. This film was able to create new standards for the use of computer special effects and creating stunning scenes, so no one thought that James Cameron could create a film that was in a higher order than the original film. However, the trailer of the movie “Avatar: The Way of Water” dispels the doubts in this field and announces more advanced effects.
In this sequel, the fantasy world of Pandora looks as beautiful and dangerous as the first film, and it benefits from the existence of characters that are more tangible than the first film and seem to have taken on more human and natural faces. James Cameron has spent years perfecting this technology, hoping to deliver his best performance and realistically portray the strange waters of Pandora, even preparing his cameras in such a way that he could use them in the second film, Underwater World. also filmed Pandora, and now according to the trailer of this movie, it can be safely said that “Avatar: Waterway” has been able to depict the underwater world of Pandora beautifully and show the beauty of this mysterious area to the audience.
So now that artists have been able to film the oceans frame by frame in such a way that they look wavy, it’s safe to say that doing anything in the world of Pandora is possible. For those who are lost in the dense forests of Pandora and are hungry for the next movie, “Avatar: Waterway” can definitely be the miracle that they have been waiting for years.
Will Avatar sequels be like Lord of the Rings?
What can be said about the director of “The Lord of the Rings” was that he was committed to very high quality, and therefore he stopped making sequels of this franchise at some point because, just like Cameron, he wanted to create very high quality films. . Another fact that can be acknowledged is that James Cameron compares his sequels to the size and scale of the Lord of the Rings films and wants his films to be as ambitious as he believes that each Avatar sequel should appeal to the audience in its own style. to surprise It can definitely be said that his expectations are too high, but if we want to look at his words from another perspective, we must say that Cameron is an outstanding storyteller and therefore he has always done his best to turn his big ideas into reality.
When shooting some scenes in The Lord of the Rings seemed unfilmable, Jackson was able to make all of these scenes come true using stunning visual effects. So Cameron aspires to do the same, and just like Jackson, he creates all the sequences in an original, pleasant and stunning way for the audience to enjoy watching them.
In one of his interviews, he said, “I don’t want to just make movies.” Rather, I want to create valuable films. Just like the Lord of the Rings series. In fact, these films are my role models, and I want the Avatar sequels to be as valuable as they are. So I can confidently say that the sequel to Avatar the Last Airbender has a much bigger story to tell, and I believe that this film can not only meet my expectations as a director, but it can also meet people’s expectations and be remembered as a film. Mandani will become just like the first movie.
Considering that the second movie “Avatar” took more than a decade to make, we can expect that Cameron’s words are true. Because the world and the characters of Pandora have evolved in a strange way, and perhaps such an evolution seems interesting and entertaining to the audience. Although no one knows in which direction the sequels of Avatar will go, but we will definitely see new surprises in each of them. Of course, everything depends on the performance of “Avatar 2”.
