Prepare to dive into the oceans of Pandora. While the first Avatar stood directly above the water, the long-awaited sequel will submerge as the new James Cameron movie explores the invisible underwater world of the exotic planet.
We’ve already seen plenty of behind-the-scenes footage of Avatar 2, including one from the cast in scuba gear, and now, thanks to producer Jon Landau, we’ve got a picture of someone riding what appears to be a huge creature living in the sea.
“Photographer Mark Fellman took this photo last year of Great Britain Dalton while capturing underwater performance in the aftermath of Avatar,” the caption for the action reads. Check it out below.

Cameron previously mocked that the Avatar sequels (of which there are four, released between 2021 and 2027) “will spend quite a bit of time in the water, around the water, in the water.” The first concept art for Avatar 2 also showed off the beautiful new fauna and flora that we can expect a second time.
Meanwhile, Landau has been talking a bit about Avatar 2 in the past few months, recently teasing the premise of the sequel and hinting that the 2021 release will be a more familiar affair than the first movie. Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) will have three children in the sequels to Avatar: the firstborn Neteyam, the second son Lo’ak and the youngest daughter of the offspring, Tuktirey ..
“This is the story of the Sully family and what you do to keep your family together,” he said. “Jake and Neytiri have a family in this movie, they are forced to leave their home, they go out and explore the different regions of Pandora.”
Production on Avatar 2 is set to restart imminently in New Zealand. With what now seems like a lot of (virtual) terrain to cover and four movies shot simultaneously at a reported cost of $ 1 billion, they’re going to need as much time as they can get.
