Avatar is set in the mid-22nd century when humans are colonizing Pandora, a lush habitable moon of a gas giant in the Alpha Centauri star system, in order to mine the valuable mineral unobtanium. Avatar 2 will be titled Avatar: The Way of Water, according to Disney. Producer Jon Landau revealed the Avatar 2 title, and first 3D footage at CinemaCon 2022, during Disney’s massive panel highlighting its upcoming slate of content.

The title for Avatar 2 along with sequels Avatar 3, 4, and 5 was first reported in 2018, at a time when the release schedule for these films looked very different and much closer. The official synopsis for Avatar: The Way of Water was also revealed.

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, Giovanni Ribisi, and Kate Winslet. To whet audiences’ appetites, the studio will re-release “Avatar” in theaters on September 23.

The title Avatar 2 is appropriate, as water will be a major theme in the sequel – something we’ve known from the beginning. Sam Worthington, Stepehn Lang, Giovanni Ribisi, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, CCH Pounder, Matt Gerald, and Sigourney Weaver are among the returning franchise stars.


Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Brendan Cowell, Michelle Yeoh, Jemaine Clement, Oona Chaplin, David Thewlis, Vin Diesel, and CJ Jones are among the newcomers. Avatar 2 will be released on December 16, 2022, with Avatar 3 following two years later on December 20, 2024.
