James Cameron has shared a glimpse into the world of Avatar 2, 11 years after the premiere of global success Avatar. Newly released concept art teases unexplored landscapes from the film's mystical setting of Pandora.
The director revealed the film's official concept art on January 6 during the CES conference in Las Vegas. The official Avatar Twitter account later tweeted four of the pieces, which showcase characters surrounded by vibrant bodies of water.
In the #Avatar sequels, you won’t just return to Pandora — you’ll explore new parts of the world.

Cameron hinted at a strong aquatic influence in a recent interview with CNET, explaining that we'll see more of what goes on above and below the sea. He also expressed excitement for Avatar 2's new machinery and said, "The vehicles, spacecraft, aircraft, ground vehicles, weapons, the hardware. I'm a total geek when it comes to that stuff."
The long-awaited sequel to 2009's smash hit is due in December 2021. Cameron had originally aimed to release Avatar 2 in 2014, but the date was continually pushed back, ending with Disney's most recent push from December 2020 to 2021. But no worries -- excited fans will not have to endure another 11 year hiatus. The next three instalments in the Avatar series are currently expected to be released in 2023, 2025 and 2027.
