Compared to the first film, Avatar: La via dell’acqua gives the impression of being less “complete” in terms of narrative,


IT so much so that the ending opens the door to the sequel. Well, screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver explain that there is a reason for this: their initial script, conceived for a single film, was in fact divided into two parts.

Jaffa and Silver were unable to reveal anything specific about the third chapter, which is expected to be released on December 20, 2024 . Nonetheless, they explained that The Water Way sows some clues about future events, especially if we think of the tense verbal exchanges between Jake and Neytiri and between Tonowari and Ronal – leader of the Metkayina clan – when the protagonists ask them for asylum. Jaffa adds :

There are many things that happen between husbands and wives, and between two husbands and two wives. Many dynamics are established that will then continue to develop.

Silver explains:

There’s this deep set of dynamics that you can relate to, inter-familial, interpersonal, inter-clan, playing out on a gigantic scale in different worlds. The clans you’ll know and the worlds you’ll find on Pandora — you can’t even imagine what they are. Just like the tulkuns were a revelation in this film, there are more such things to come. It’s very exciting what happens to the Sullies. It cannot be predicted.

Avatar 3 has already been filmed, like some parts of Avatar 4 , to avoid the ” Stranger Things effect ” associated with the aging of child and adolescent actors.

We will keep you posted.
