I am here to inform you there are more Avatar 2 set photos. At this point, I’m pretty sure you could compile a flipbook of all the behind-the-scenes pics and create your own movie if you were so inclined. As usual, the latest Avatar 2 set pics are odd curiosities, since so much of the movie is created in post-production. As a result, director James Cameron and company keep providing us with images of actors in motion capture suits walking around weird, mostly empty sets, and we have to use our imagination to picture a bunch of colorful CGI that will be added later.

By the time Avatar 2 is released in theaters in December 2022, it will be 13 years since James Cameron‘s original sci-fi blockbuster hit theaters. Though it feels like interest has waned over the decade-plus, there’s undoubtedly still curiosity about what has taken the Terminator and Aliens director so long to get these sequels off the ground and whether it will be worth the wait.
We’ll get a hint of the answer starting this Friday when the Behind Pandora video series kicks off, providing a glimpse behind the scenes at the various departments and crew members making it happen. Read More »
Audiences won’t be saying “I see you” to Ubisoft’s new Avatar video game until sometime in 2022.
Back in 2017, the video game giant announced that a brand new Avatar game was in the works courtesy of Massive Entertainment, the same company that made games like The Division, Far Cry 3, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

If you’re wondering what’s taking so damn long, it might be more than just the extensive post-production process and development of state-of-the-art technology. Because according to Sigourney Weaver, preparation for the shoot required cast members to train with “elite military divers” in order to allow them to hold their breath underwater for as much as six minutes, so Cameron could maximize the amount of footage he could capture in a single take.

The /Film staff has a bit of a running joke when it comes to Avatar 2 news: is the publicity team going out their way to release only the most boring images imaginable? But that’s the problem you face when the world of a film is largely digital and won’t be ready for primetime until long after the cameras have finished rolling. The other problem is that director James Cameron will hunt us down and hurt us if we joke too much.
Naturally, this means just about every glimpse of the upcoming sequel has involved puny human characters just standing around, or other actors wearing skintight motion capture suits that will eventually help transform them into alien warriors. Today’s new image is the former: here’s your first look at Edie Falco‘s new character, General Ardmore, who certainly sounds like she’s going to be a villain of some kind.

At the time, he said they were mostly done with the live-action side of production too, but they had a couple more months of work to do that would be completed in the spring.
