Avatar: The Way of the Water trailer description hits the internet
“Avatar 2 takes place in and around the ocean. Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Saldana) have children. ‘Wherever we go,’ says Sully, ‘this family is our fortress.’ The sequel looks even more jaw dropping in its deep-blue visuals than the 2009 film.”
“All new creatures: We see the Na’vi on flying fish bird creatures, communing with a whale, and yet somehow divided despite their affinity with nature: The alien people are split, battling against each other in a guns vs. arrows fight. It’s truly a whole new world upping the stakes of the previous 3x Oscar winning film.” [via Deadline]
Avatar: The Way of the Water stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Giovanni Ribisi, and Sigourney Weaver, who will all be reprising their roles from the first film. In addition, Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Michelle Yeoh, Jemaine Clement, and Vin Diesel, have also joined the cast. The film will finally hit theaters in the United States on Friday, December 16.
