Avatar 2 producer Jon Landau has shared details about Jake and Neytiri’s family for the long-awaited sequel.
It’s finally happening! Avatar 2 is finally set to hit cinemas next year. Some might say it’s been way too long between sequels (over 12 years), while others are confident that James Cameron is perfecting his vision of Pandora. Details on the upcoming film are slim, though we do know that the various sequels in development will explore the oceans of Pandora, and expand on Jake and Neytiri’s relationship.
Namely, their children will be the focal point of Avatar 2. Thanks to a recent interview with Empire Online, we have some concrete details about the upcoming sequel, as well as Jake and Neytiri’s children. In the sequel, Jake and Neytiri have three biological children, and one adopted: Spider – who is a human.
Producer Jon Landau discussed with the outlet how Spider causes contention for Jake and Neytiri’s relationship.
“Jake took him in but Neytiri always saw him as one of the people who destroyed her home and killed her father. So you have all these dynamics playing out. If you look at what Jim does in his movies, he writes in universal themes that are bigger than the genre of any one movie. This time around, we’re taking Jake and Neytiri and building the most universal theme of all around them. Which is family.”
“Jake comes from the human world, Neytiri from the Na’vi world. So, they’re like a modern mixed-race couple, raising kids who perhaps feel they don’t belong to one world or another.”

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.
Avatar 2 is currently set to be released on December 16th of 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
