If you were one of the millions that saw Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness then you got to be one of the first to see the teaser trailer for Avatar: The Way of Water. Releasing the trailer only in theaters for the weekend took us back to the pre-internet ways of marketing.
20th Century Studios’ released the teaser trailer and stills for Avatar: The Way of Water, after debuting it in theaters on May 6. This is James Cameron’s first follow-up to his Avatar, the highest-grossing film of all time. Avatar: The Way of Water will open in theaters on December 16. You can check out the trailer and stills below.
The first film was revolutionary in every aspect from filming to the in-theater experience. The film inspired a feature in Disney Parks Animal Kingdom which hosts two of its most popular attractions. Fans of the first film have been waiting patiently as James Cameron has taken his time to complete multiple sequels to the original.
Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure.
Directed by James Cameron and produced by Cameron and Jon Landau, the film stars Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement and Kate Winslet.
To whet audiences’ appetites, the studio will re-release Avatar in theaters on September 23 or you can watch it at home on Disney+.
