We finally have confirmation of what Avatar 2 is going to be about, and this time it is going to focus more on the family dynamic of the lead characters and the landscape that is Pandora.
According to Jon Landau, the producer of Avatar 2:
“This is the story of the Sully family and what one does to keep their family together. Jake and Neytiri have a family in this movie, they are forced to leave their home, they go out and explore the different regions of Pandora.”
In this second installment of Avatar, we get to meet the family of Jake and Neytiri. They have had three children: Neteyam, Lo’ak, and Tuktirey, and we get to watch how the family will traverse being forced out of their land. Will it bring them closer? Will it tear them apart?
Part of the movie is filmed underwater. It’s super cool to get a look behind the scenes through pictures they share with us during production, and learn how they go about filming!
In Avatar 2 and 3, we will also get an even more detailed look at the landscape of Pandora — which I’m super excited about! We went on the Na’vi River Journey ride at Disney World, and all the flora and wildlife was AMAZING — I mean, it was stunning!!!
They are filming Avatar 2 and 3 simultaneously in New Zealand, and much of the movies have to be added in virtually, which, as you can imagine, takes some time.
There are plans for an Avatar 4 and 5, but Disney (Who bought 20th Century Fox) isn’t going to go into full production on 4 and 5, until we see how Avatar 2 and 3 do in the box office.
Afterall, they are spending a reported $1 Billion to make the sequels. They want to get it right, and recoup their money output. I can’t say that I blame them!
