Avatar sequel trailer released 13 years after first movie

A teaser trailer for the sequel to Avatar has been released almost 13 years after the first movie broke box office records.

In just one day since the Avatar: The Way of Water trailer came out, it has reached more than four million views (correct at time of publishing).

Fans are given a glimpse of what to expect in the exciting sequel which is set to drop in cinemas later in December around the world.

The sequel, which is also set more than a decade after the first movie, will follow the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids) and the trouble that keeps following them and how they fight to keep each other alive.

Director and producer James Cameron had previously announced that he has plans for a total of six movies for the Avatar series and that he had already begun filming for the fourth film. 

"Anything that had to be done with a specific actor, we did all the scenes for 2 and 3 together – and a little bit of 4," he told Variety.

"I had to shoot the kids out. They're allowed to age six years in the middle of the story on page 25 of movie 4. So I needed everything before then, and then everything after, we'll do later."

Fans can expect to wait just one year after Avatar: The Way of Water to see the third installment with the fourth movie a year after that, and Avatar 5 for December 2026 and the final film in 2028.
