A new set of behind the scenes images for Avatar 2 shows James Cameron directing his cast for the film’s underwater scenes.
James Cameron’s 2009 film, Avatar, will go down in history as one of the biggest films ever made. For nearly ten years, it retained the title of the highest-grossing film of all time, having beaten out James Cameron’s previous 1997 film, Titanic, and was only just beaten by last year’s Avengers: Endgame. Now, however, James Cameron is coming back to the industry with a new set of Avatar films under Disney’s new management.
James Cameron, of course, has been working on the Avatar films for over ten years. While details on the upcoming sequel are still hard to come by, it is known that a portion of the film feature the oceans of the world of Pandora. Now we have our first look at just how James Cameron will film his actors underwater and the motion-capture gear that is being used for the work.
You can see the full behind the scenes images of Avatar below:

What do you all think of James Cameron’s upcoming Avatar sequel? Are you looking forward to it? Should they have even bothered making one at this point? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Here is the official synopsis for the first Avatar film:
AVATAR takes us to a spectacular world beyond imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on an epic adventure, ultimately fighting to save the alien world he has learned to call home. James Cameron, the Oscar-winning director of Titanic, first conceived the film 15 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not exist yet. Now, after four years of production, AVATAR, a live action film with a new generation of special effects, delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.
