We had to wait over a decade but we have finally entered the year that will bring one of the most anticipated sequels ever to cinemas around the globe: let’s talk about Avatar 2 by James Cameron, expected to arrive on December 16, 2022.
Very little is known about this film, or so it was until a few days ago, since the first official trailer was shown last week screened exclusively at the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas and unveiled some highly anticipated details. But when will we also be able to see it in our country? The first great opportunity will materialize shortly, coinciding with the release in the cinemas of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness starting May 4, 2022. The trailer for Avatar 2: The Way of Water, this is the official title, it will be shown before the screenings of the Marvel film and only later (about a week later) will it be shared online and on television channels.
Yet there are those who have already seen it and were delighted! The reason why? Apparently from the first sequences it is clear that it will be a visually spectacular film and we didn’t have many doubts about this, but thanks to the experience of the first lucky ones we now also know something more about the story.
From the first previews of the press organs that have had the opportunity to view the trailer, we know that in Avatar 2 the Na’vi people will be more integrated with that of humans, and it is within this context that Jake Sully and Neytiri (Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldaña) will start a family of their own. From the first comments it would seem that their offspring are half human and half Na’vi, as a consequence of a hybrid genetic heritage, and that family events will be at the center of the main story, but we stop here so as not to go into details. unclear moment.
We know in advance that the original cast will be present but will be enriched by the presence of other prominent actors. A few names? Alongside Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Giovanni Ribisi and Sigourney Weaver, there will also be Edie Falco, Cliff Curtis, Oona Chaplin and Kate Winslet.
But Avatar 2 it will be just the real beginning of a franchise on which Fox is betting a lot and we are already talking about the next episodes. First of all we already know that the sequels to the first Avatar will be at least four and will arrive every two years, with Avatar 3 expected in 2024. But there is no willingness to compete with other sacred cinema franchises, so it has already been decided that the next holiday season will alternate between the new Star Wars films and those of Avatar at least until 2028, barring complications that are not foreseeable at the moment. .
