In an interview with Variety, Oscar-winning director James Cameron, who spoke to acclaimed director Denis Villeneuve (“Dune”), revealed some behind-the-scenes secrets of the highly anticipated “Avatar 2”.
Cameron said he and the cast spent a few days in the rainforest on Kauai, an island in Hawaii, so the cast and actresses could observe how to behave and survive in this kind of environment.
“I took the actors on what I could call a sensory and memory odyssey,” he explained. “We went to Kauai. We live in the rainforest for a few days. We cook on fires. We drink the water from the leaves. I said, ‘Okay, now we’re going to walk a path and I want you to watch as much as you can how to walk on the ground, how to put your hands in the right place when you go up a steep place. You’re going to have to remember it, how it felt, what it looked like, and you’re going to have to bring it back to a relatively sterile environment. We are all embarking on this journey.
Recently, new promotional images of the sequel have been released.

In an interview with Total Film, producer Jon Landau explained why the sequel is taking so long: They took the time to write the scripts up to “Avatar 5.”
“Scripts are the project we work with. So a lot of our time has been written … with the challenge of each of those four scripts having to resolve individually into a story that ends in great emotional resolution – but when you look at them as a whole, the arc of the story of the four films creates an even bigger epic saga, ”he said.
“Avatar 2” will have as parents Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) and will take place several years after the first film.
In the plot, the idyllic Sully’s life is interrupted when RDA mining returns to Pandora, forcing Jake to take the family to “what is considered a safe haven” on the reef.
“And when you get to the reef, there will be a clan that we call the Metkayina. The Sullys are no longer in the environment they know, the rainforest. They become fish out of the water. They become culturally and ecologically fish out of the water, ”he concluded.
‘Avatar 2’ has been confirmed for December 16, 2022. It should be remembered that this is the seventh time that the footage has been postponed.
“Avatar” has raised $ 2,798.9 billion worldwide.
