Anyone who saw Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness was treated to the Teaser Trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water. This one shocked me because it picked up a bit of applause in the theatre. After all, it’s been 13 years. Not that anyone ever asked for a sequel (or 2 more), I get the feeling Cameron has faith in himself and his crew.
Two things really stood out for me with this teaser. One, Mech-Spiders fixing buildings, what are those?! Two, is that Simon Franglen’s score playing? It’s nice, and with James Horner gone (and missed), I’m hoping the rest of it will be good.
Taking place some time after the first story, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) have a family now, and we’ll get to see Pandora’s watery depths. Supposedly, Cameron’s been pushing for upgrades in 3D technology, so it’ll be interesting to find out what advances have happened in a decade.
Avatar: The Way of Water is set for a December release.
