Currently, our first piece of confirmed Avatar 2 news is that plenty of actors from the original movie will return. These are Sam Worthington, who plays Jake Sully, and Zoe Saldaña, who plays Neytiri. Previously, Sigourney Weaver starred as Dr Grace Augustine, and she will appear again in this movie. However, she will play Jake and Neytiri’s adopted child.
Additionally, Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch. In the original 2009 film, Quaritch was the main bad guy. In an exciting piece of Avatar 2 news, Lang revealed he would be the main villain for all four movies. There’s also Joel David Moore, who is returning as Dr Norm Spellman. Other returning actors include Matt Gerald, Dileep Rao, Giovanni Ribisi, and CCH Pounder.
However, the film isn’t shy about new talent either! Hollywood star Kate Winslet will appear as Ronal, while Cliff Curtis will play Tonowari. For the humans, Edie Falco will be General Ardmore, and Michelle Yeoh will be Dr Karina Mogue. In other Avatar 2 news, Jemaine Clement, David Thewlis, CJ Jones, Oona Chaplin, and Brendan Cowell will also appear in the movie.
In a recent Instagram post, Landau teased some of the behind-the-scenes work going on for the movie. He mentioned that the composer, Simon Franglen, had recently started “scoring sessions” for the film. Franglen took the reins for the film after the first film’s composer, James Horner, died in a plane accident in 2015. It might not be a huge update, but seeing a little piece of Avatar 2 news is enough to get us excited about the movie
The Way of Water Interview

Last year, actress Kate Winslet spoke about her work on Avatar: The Way of Water. She compared director James Cameron’s work on the film to his previous film, saying:
“The Jim Cameron on Avatar, he is calmer. I will say that he’s just much more stepped into his true self, I think. That’s because of experience. That’s also because he’s done Avatar before, so he knows this world, and he knows these characters. He’s invented that way of filming. There’s a level of confidence that has grounded him in a much more comfortable place, just for him.”
Clearly, this level of confidence will work well for the film, and we can’t wait for more Avatar 2 news. Winslet then went on to say:
He was brilliantly collaborative on Avatar, honestly. I was awestruck by how much time he allows for the actors to often just meander over a scene if it doesn’t feel like it fits quite right. And obviously, safety had to come first. Listen, if there’s a proper world collapse and we really are all set on fire, and there’s another global pandemic any minute now, I can tell you with my hand on my heart, one of the people I would want to be within that bunker is Jim Cameron. He’s very much safety first. I felt really good working with him. I’m so excited for Avatar.
Evidently, she’s not the only one who’s excited! The film drops on December 16th.
