Avatar: The Way of Water this December

The 13-year wait to return to Pandora is almost over. The first sequel to Avatar (2009), Avatar: The Way of Water, will be in cinemas this holiday season.

Director James Cameron (Aliens) made the announcement during Disney's presentation at CinemaCon 2022 in Las Vegas.

"We wanted our return to Pandora to be something really special," Cameron told the CinemaCon attendees. "We set out once again to push the limits of what cinema can do."

The sequel stars Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement, Giovanni Ribisi and Kate Winslet.

In preparation for the upcoming sequel’s release. The original Avatar will be remastered and back in cinemas on 23rd September. Cameron's sci-fi epic was 3D's killer app in cinemas and at home. Panasonic Hollywood Laboratories (PHL) was instrumental in the early success of the format.

A trailer will be exclusively shown with Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. There'll be a week delay before it's officially released online. Let's see how quickly someone uploads it.

Avatar: The Way of Water is in cinemas on 16th December.

  1. I have to say I did chuckle on hearing the news the original is getting YET ANOTHER re-release. This must be what - version 3,656 that has been thrust on cinema audiences? Between all the theatrical versions in 3D, Mega 3D, Mega Mega Ultra-crisp IMAX 9999.1 Dolby Surroundsound 3D; AND all the various iterations on DVD, Blu-Ray, 3d bluray for phillips Tvs etc etc I'ts any wonder there is anyone left on the planet who hasn't seen this movie at least 6 times.

    Who do Fox/Disney think is going to want to get see this again?

    As for the trailer only showing exclusively tagged to Dr Strange. I give it no more than a dozen hours before theres a version "leaked" online for all to enjoy.

    Do I see myself schelping to a theatre to see this one. Frankly - unlikely. One I can definitely wait 3-4 months to sit and watch at home on Disney+

    Now TOP GUN however - not THATS a feature I HAVE to see on the big screen !

    1. I can see the trailer dropping online and Disney+ pronto.
