The plot of Avatar 2
We are going back to Pandora in 2022. The film will take place 13 years after the original movie. Jake Sully and Neyitri have started a family and are living a happy life together. However, they have to return back to Pandora when an old threat returns.
In the #Avatar sequels, you won’t just return to Pandora — you’ll explore new parts of the world.

The producer Jon Landau said that the sequel won’t act as a continuation to the first movie. He said, “Each movie is a standalone movie that we would wanna go see. You don’t need to have seen the first Avatar to see Avatar 2. It sits there and we’re gonna take people on a visual and an emotional journey that comes to its own conclusion.”
We know that water plays a huge role in this movie, so we can expect a high-level Aquaman style action sequences as well. Cameron talked about his water scenes to Collider. He said, “It’s never been done before and it’s very tricky because our motion capture system uses markers that are photographed with hundreds of cameras.” In 2015, Landau confirmed that there will be humans in the movie. He said, “There are going to be good humans, there are going to be bad humans, There are going to be good Na’vi, There are going to be bad Na’vi.” During CineEurope 2017, Landau mentioned that in the coming four movie, the man focus will be the Sully movie.
James Cameron managed to bring the OG Cast back for the sequel. So, we will see Sam Worthington as Jake Sully and Zoe Saldana as Neyitri. We will see also Sigourney Weaver as Dr. Grace Augustine even after she died in the movie. Cameron said, “Nobody dies in a a science fiction movie.” The real reason why she will return will unveil in the movie. Stephen Lang will return as Colonel Miles Quaritch because Cameron has an interesting arc for him. We will also see other characters, like, Joel David Moore as Norm Spellman, and Dileep Rao as Dr. Max Patel. CCH Pounder will be back as Mo’at.
The main focus is family in Avatar 2, so the children added are Jamie Flatters as Neteyam (the oldest Sully son), Britain Dalton as Lo’ak, and Trinity Bliss as their daughter Tuktirey. A confirmed human character is Jack Champion who will the role of Javier ‘Spider’ Soccoro.
Congratulations to @JackTheChamp on completing his last live action shot on Avatar 2! What a difference a few years makes.
