Moviegoers have waited for years to see what director James Cameron has in store for Avatar: The Way of Water, the upcoming sequel to Avatar. The sequel has been through quite a few delays, but it’s scheduled to finally be released later this year – around 13 years after its predecessor. As such, the marketing campaign is set to kick into high gear soon, and fans recently got their first look at the film before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, as the trailer was attached to that film.
Of course, most links to the leaked trailer have so far been removed – and the footage below will likely be removed as well. Interestingly, many of the fans were blown away by the footage. Even the ones that weren’t fond of the footage, saying there wasn’t anything appealing for them, noted that it was still “visually stunning.”
Here is the leaked Avatar: The Way of Water trailer:
At this rate, it’s expected that the official release for the trailer will be sometime soon. It’s definitely a surreal moments after all the years’ worth of delays regarding the film’s production. Soon enough, fans will be returning to the world of Pandora by way of theaters.
James Cameron returned to direct Avatar: The Way of Water from a screenplay he wrote with Josh Friedman. Many cast members from the original film are expected to return as well for the upcoming sequel, including Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldaña.
Avatar: The Way of Water will be released on December 16, 2022. Further sequels are also currently in production. They’ll each be released on December 20, 2024, December 18, 2026, and December 22, 2028, respectively. Fans can stay tuned to ScreenGeek for more updates on these Avatar films as we have them.
