An official set image from Avatar 2 has been released and offers a glimpse of what cinephiles could expect from 20th Century Studios’ most anticipated visual spectacle line-up for 2022. The upcoming second installment featuring Sam Worthington’s Sully in the titular role is just one among the three or four Avatar sequels James Cameron has planned for the fictional Pandora Universe.
The production process for the Avatar sequels faced major hurdles during the pandemic-induced global shutdown. Eventually, Avatar 2’s suspended filming schedule in New Zealand had an overall effect on all titles being delayed by a year with part 2 receiving a December 2022 release. Since

Avatar 2 producer Jon Landau spoke to Total Film Magazine for the publication’s 2022 preview issue and offered some insight on the dangers Sully’s family will face when the RDA mining operations return to Pandora, forcing them to flee.
“And when you get to the reef, there’s a clan we call the Metkayina,” Landau said. “The Sullys are no longer in the environment they know, the rainforest. They become the fish out of water. They become the fish out of water both culturally and just environmentally.”
The sequel will have a 10-year time jump from the events of 2009’s Avatar, staying true to the time spanned out in reality. Worthington’s Sully and Zoe Saldana’s Neytiri are shown as a family.
Landau also added the scribing process for Avatar movies was pivotal in setting a linear narrative that wraps up with a big impactful conclusion:
“The scripts are the blueprint from which we work,” the producer explained. “So a large portion of our time was writing… with the challenge that each of those four scripts had to individually resolve itself in a story that concludes with a big emotional resolution — but when you look at them as a whole, the connected story arc of all four movies creates an even larger epic saga.”
Avatar 2 lands in theaters on December 16, 2022.
