Story of Avatar 2 (2021) Movie:
In the original movie, we saw paralyzed marine Jake Sully, who went on a mining mission on the planet Pandora. In that mission, human invaders were trying to extract from Pandora. Pandora is a world where our imaginations can run wild. There, he met a blue-skinned alien warrior Neytiri and fell in love with her. The events of Avatar 2 take place around a decade later of the first film of this series.
Avatar (2009) was more about Avatar’s visual and emotional horsepower. But this time James Cameron will focus more on Sully family. Jake Sully and Neytiri now have children. Sully family will abandon their home. They will explore the different regions of Pandora. There, they will face many adventures, but this will keep the family strong and together.
The director confirmed that most of the movie scenes will take place in Pandora’s ocean. This film will also introduce us with sea-faring Metkayina clan playing a key role. Sully family will explore the oceans of Pandora. James Cameron said that the most important element of this sequel is going to be the underwater elements. For this purpose, the production team has developed an underwater motion capture technology.
Pandora is an unbelievable world of aliens. In the original movie, the director could not show us more about the culture of Pandora. But Avatar 2 will introduce us to the culture and lives of the people of pandora.
In this film, we will see humans too. But Avatar 2 is more about Sully family and their struggle with humans.
