‘Avatar 2’ is happening as CinemaCon saw makers release some dazzling footage from the film. The long-awaited sequel is titled ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’.
Disney unveiled director James Cameron’s otherworldly vision for Avatar. Disney got hold of the franchise after it acquired 20th Century Fox in 2019. At the CinemaCon, they unveiled new footage from the film as the audiences were given 3D glasses to watch the trailer which had almost no dialogue and only visuals.
The audiences after watching it said that it felt like going through the world of Pandora. The footage shows clear blue oceans and lakes along with footage of the local tribe of Na’vi interacting with various species resembling whales and pelicans, some of which flew through the screen.
