‘Avatar 2’ (also known as James Cameron’s Avatar 2) is an upcoming American adventure science fiction film.
It is directed by James Cameron and produced by 20th Century Studios.
It is the second film in the Avatar franchise, following Avatar (2009).
Cameron is producing the film with Jon Landau, with Josh Friedman originally announced as Cameron’s co-writer; it was later announced that Cameron, Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, and Shane Salerno took a part in the writing process of all sequels before being attributed separate scripts, making the eventual writing credits unclear.
But, what can we expect from this film? Here’s everything we know about it so far.

Winslet called Ronal “a pivotal character in the ongoing story”, but also “relatively small comparative to the lengthy shoot”, as shooting all her scenes would only take a month. It marks her first time working with performance capture, or motion capture altogether; she, like most of the child cast, also had to learn free-diving for the film.
- Giovanni Ribisi as Parker Selfridge

- Edie Falco as General Ardmore
- Brendan Cowell as Captain Mick Scoresby
- Michelle Yeoh as Dr. Karina Mogue
- Jemaine Clement as Dr. Ian Garvin, a marine biologist.
- Sigourney Weaver: Weaver originally appeared in the first film as Dr. Grace Augustine, a human who takes the side of the Na’vi and dies during the conflict. Although both Weaver and Cameron confirmed that she would return in the sequels, she stated in 2014 that she would not play the same character.
- Stephen Lang as Colonel Miles Quaritch, who led the forces of the RDA, the human organization colonizing Pandora, in their conflict with the Na’vi in the first film. Although the character died at the end of Avatar, Cameron confirmed in 2010 that Lang would return in the first three sequels, stating, “I’m not going to say exactly how we’re bringing him back, but it’s a science fiction story, after all. His character will evolve into really unexpected places across the arc of our new three-film saga.” He later stated that Quaritch would act as the main antagonist once again, in all four sequels. Lang’s role will involve motion capture.
- Oona Chaplin as Varang, a “strong and vibrant central character who spans the entire saga of the sequels”.
Vin Diesel and CJ Jones have been cast in undisclosed roles.
