A brand new full-length trailer is set to be released for the movie sequel, titled Avatar: The Way of Water, on Wednesday (2 November) during Good Morning America.
It will showcase the world of Pandora as well as returning Na’avi characters played by Sam Worthington and Zoë Saldaña. The trailer follows the initial teaser, which was released back in May.
Avatar: The Way of Water, which, as the title suggests, is mostly set underwater, was recently hyped us as being “the most insanely complicated movie” ever made.
As was noted by writer-director Liam O’Donnell, Cameron’s filmmaking process included the usage of 15 cameras, two of which were focused on every actor’s face, as well the use of underwater performance capture and “infrared depth capture to place CG characters in live-action footage”.
The film’s cast, including Sigourney Weaver and Kate Winslet, as well as crew members, were trained to breathe for two to three minutes underwater in order to shoot many of the film’s scenes.
It was reported last week that the film’s runtime will be three hours, 12 minutes, which is more than 30 minutes longer than the first Avatar film.
The Way of Water is the first of four planned Avatar sequels that Cameron will release every other year until 2028. It will be released in cinemas – in 3D – on 16 December.
20th Century Studios annoucned the trailer’s release, which will arrive imminently in the UK. Watch this space.

Just like the first one, Avatar: The Way of Water will be released in 3D – and, if you’re wondering why it took James Cameron so long to make it, well... he had quite a bit of work to do to pull it off.

Sigourney Weaver will be BACK in the new film – but playing a different character.
That character will be Kiri, the adopted daughter of Jake and Neytiri.

The trailer is being released during the latest episopde of Good Morning America, which airs between 7-11am EST, which is 11-1pm GMT – so, considering it’s now noon, expect it to roll in very soon.

Sam Worthington and Zoë Saldaña will return as main characters Jake and Neytiri.
This time around, they’ll have four Na’avi children.

It’s been 13 years since the first film was released. Since then, it’s become the highest-grossing film of all time, so you could say the sequel is fairly anticipated.
