Avatar 2 lead actress and Guardians of the Galaxy’s Gamora, Zoe Saldaña has already watched about 20 minutes of the much-anticipated Avatar sequel, ie. Avatar 2 – and it has reportedly moved her to literally tears.
“I can get choked up just talking about it,” Saldaña revealed when asked about Avatar 2 during an interview with Kevin McCarthy. “I was able to see just 20 minutes of the second installment, right before the year ended, last year. And I was speechless. I was moved to tears.”
It’s Been 13 Years Since Avatar was Released!
The first Avatar film was released way back; and it has been 13 long years since it came out in the year 2009, so the sequel for the James Cameron film is certainly long-awaited by many fans. Starring stars like Sam Worthington as Jake Sully, who was a former Marine but turned Na’vi alongside Zoe Saldaña who portrays the role of Na’vi princess Neytiri, with some bigger names that include Kate Winslet, Edie Falco, and Sigourney Weaver.
The sequel will be exploring the fictional underwater world of the planet of Pandora and will be focusing more on the Sullys – while numerous years have passed away and Neytiri and Jake are now parents too.
“Director James Cameron was finally able to crack that challenge – that whole thing that you can’t imitate water, virtually, through performance capture,” Saldaña stated. “That was just a challenge that he had taken upon himself, and it took him years, and he did it. He did it. It’s powerful, it’s compelling.”
Producer for Avatar 2 Jon Landau did reveal the plot of the upcoming film last year:
“The Sullys’ idyllic life is disrupted when the RDA mining operation returns to Pandora, forcing Jake to take the family to “what is perceived as a safe harbor” at the reef, but new problems await there.”
Arriving on the big screen on December 16, Avatar 2, will be having three more sequels will be followed every year until 2028, as planned by director James Cameron.
