The Reel Critic Reviews ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’

Written by on December 16, 2022

This week, Reggie Ponder gives us a glimpse into the world of Avatar: The Way of Water — 13 years after the original Avatar film was released.

In 2009, the world was buzzing about writer and director James Cameron’s epic science fiction film Avatar. After 15 years of production, its technologically advanced CGI and motion capture  production tactics stunned audiences worldwide. Even with a nearly three-hour run time, Avatar quickly topped the charts, becoming the highest grossing film of all time.

Now, 13 years of extensive pre-production and production later, Cameron’s long-delayed but highly-anticipated sequel to Avatar is here.

Avatar: The Way of Water follows the protagonists of the original film, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña), who must navigate leaving their home with their family as a familiar threat reemerges, leaving Sully and Neytiri to work together with the Na’vi race to protect their home on the extrasolar moon Pandora.
