Film production formalities across the world came to a sudden halt due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Even as production houses are limping back to normalcy, Avatar 2, the highly-anticipated sequel to the 2009 Hollywood sci-fi blockbuster, Avatar, is all set to resume its shoot. The film’s unit will be heading to New Zealand next week to kick-start the new schedule.
Avatar 2 will be the first Hollywood biggie to resume filming in the wake of the pandemic. Jon Landau, one of the producers of Avatar 2, took to Instagram and made the announcement about the upcoming schedule. He also shared a few Behind The Scenes pictures of the film’s director James Cameron and his cast.
Jon also revealed a picture of two new futuristic boats – ‘The Matador, “a high speed forward command vessel” (bottom) and The Picador, a jetboat, which will be featured in the sequel.
Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Kate Winslet, and Cliff Curtis are the major cast in this 3D spectacle. The film will hit theaters on December 17, 2021. Three more sequels are also in the pipeline and a major portion of the shooting has been wrapped up already.
