Avatar 2 Movie Review, Casts and Release date
Avatar 2 Movie is a 20th century American epic science fiction film directed by James Cameron. This is the second film in Cameroon’s Avatar franchise since Avatar (2009). Cameron is producing the film with Josh Landau, and Josh Friedman has been announced as Cameron’s co-writer.
It was later announced that Cameron, Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Shane Salerno were involved in the writing process for all the sequels before attributing special scripts, which eventually obscured the written credits.
Actors Sam Worthington, Zo Saldana, Stephen Long, Giovanni Ribisi, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, CCH Pounder and Matt Gerald all perform their roles from the original film, with Sigourney Weaver returning in a different role.
The new cast includes Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Eddie Falco, Brendan Cowell, Michelle Yeh, Jemaine Clement, Ona Chaplin, Vin Diesel and CJ Jones.
Cameron, who said in 2006 that he wanted to make a sequel to Avatar if successful, announced the first two sequels in 2010 following the widespread success of the first film, with Avatar 2 aiming for a 2014 release.
However, the subsequent three sequels included the need to develop new technology to capture underwater film performance, an unprecedented achievement, leading to significant delays in allowing the crew to work longer hours, pre-production and visual effects.

In February 2019, Landau announced that live-action filming for Avatar 2 and 3 would begin in New Zealand in the spring of 2019.
Preliminary shooting for the film began in Manhattan Beach, California on August 15, 2017, followed by Principal Photography and Avatar 3 in New Zealand on September 25, 2017. After more than three years of shooting, filming ended at the end of September 2020.
On March 17, 2020, Landau announced that it had indefinitely postponed the filming of the New Zealand Avatar series in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
In early May, the New Zealand government allowed health and safety production protocols to resume filming in the country.
On December 17, 2019, Simon Franklin, the producer of the original film Score and the original song “ICU”, is reported to be composing new songs for the incarnation as an arrangement of the score electronic music parts in Avatar 2 and 3.
However, it was not until March 2021 that any announcement was made to replace James Horner, the composer of the original film, who was first reported to have been involved in writing music for the franchise before dying in a plane crash in June 2015.
With the latest event on July 23, 2020, the film has been subject to 8 delays in its release. It is currently scheduled for release on December 16, 2022, and the following three sequels will be released on December 20, 2024, December 18, 2026 and December 22, 2028, respectively.
