Trailer: thirteen years after the first part, Avatar 2 reveals a Pandora threatened by war

VIDEO – Entitled The Way of the Water, the second feature film in the franchise directed by James Cameron will be back in theaters on December 14. If the first images say little about the content of the scenario, the paradise of Jack Sully is, it seems, no longer what it was. Decryption.

The wait was long. While the first film Avatar was released in 2009 and will remain engraved in the history of cinema for the recorded box office records, the distributor of the franchise, The Walt Disney Company, has just delivered the first images of the second part entitled Avatar: The Way of Water. Scheduled in French theaters on December 14, the feature film plans to dive back into this universe both terrestrial and underwater, between idyll and clan war around the same blue creatures, called the Na’vis.

This short trailer, lasting one minute and thirty-seven seconds, once again exposes Pandora, the planet on which the mythical creatures of the film directed by James Cameron live. While she broadcasts almost no storyline material, only one sentence is spoken by the main character, Jake Sully: “One thing is certain. Wherever we go, this family will be our fortress.” He pronounces this sentence in the middle of splendid aquatic images, which testify to Cameron’s love for the marine universe and had at the time made the success of the franchise. And the will of the director goes in this direction. It’s necessary “pushing the limits of what cinema can do”he had spoken at the CinemaCon festival held at the end of April.

The plot takes place more than a decade after the first flights on the back of dragons. She once again follows Jake Sully, played by actor Sam Worthington, as well as his wife Neytiri, a role played by Zoe Saldana. Unlike the original film, several characters make their debut on Pandora, who are none other than the couple’s children. But “their idyllic life, close to nature, is threatened”recounts the short synopsis of the feature film, specifying the arrival on the island of a threatening and dangerous non-governmental organization called the Resources Development Administration. Our heroes will have to escape this threat by leaving their natural habitat to go to the reefs where they think they will find asylum. “But they come across a clan, the Metkayina, with customs different from theirs…” Any resemblance to people or situations that exist or have existed cannot be purely coincidental…
