Avatar fans this one is for you!
James Cameron dropped some new Avatar 2 concept art last night at the 2020 CES Convention in Las Vegas.
Interestingly enough the new movie seems to focus on more of the water creatures, which just happen to be showcased in the Flight of Passage Ride. Whether this is a coincidence or a flat out tie-in I don’t know (but I’m leaning towards the later.) But who cares, it makes it all more cohesive and as long as it has a good story, bring it on.
Here are some of the shots released online:
In the #Avatar sequels, you won’t just return to Pandora — you’ll explore new parts of the world.

Entertainment Weekly said that second film will introduce a new Na’vi clan called the Metkayina, who are ruled by Tonowari, played by Cliff Curtis from Fear the Walking Dead.
Producer Jon Landau called it “the future generation of Pandora.” (Which would kind of tie into the theme park more.) Landau also indicated that Javier “Spider” Socorro, a human born at the Hell’s Gate military complex as well as Jake Sully’s children and the children of the Metkayina.
These characters and actors were revealed back in 2017:
“The young actors playing Sully’s family are revealed here for the first time, along with the children from another Na’vi clan, called the Metkayina, who dwell on giant oceanic atoll reefs under the rule of a leader named Tonowari.”
We have been receiving periodic updates for the upcoming film, which is to be one of four sequels. Now we’ve got a better look at the locations and “world” for the next movie.
Avatar 2 is currently scheduled for release on December 18, 2021.
