It will be the family, and the contrasts that come from the diversity of the components within, the great theme of “Avatar 2”, the long-awaited sequel to the 2009 blockbuster film, a title kept for a decade, until the release of “Avengers: Endgame “. At the center of the story, again the two protagonists, Jake and Neytiri, this time confronted with Spider, the human born on Pandora in the Hell’s Gate military base, too small to be brought back to Earth. Spider is now grown up and his differences with his adoptive father Jake, with whom he shares human origin, and his mother Neytiri, from the world of Na’vi, are starting to be felt. The two parents feel that they do not belong to the worlds they come from or to what they inhabit and the problems, he explains Jon Landau, one of the producers of the film, are those of any mixed-race couple. The preview photo is particularly evocative: Spider, whose real name is Miles Socorro, emerges from the water, in the shot only the eyes and hair, combed in braids, are visible. The aquatic environment suggests that the film contains many diving scenes in Pandora’s oceans, an announced show that will only be unveiled next year.

The group of children will be the protagonist of the sequel

Landau’s statements emphasize that the story, although set in a fantasy world, will be based on a universal theme. Jake and Neytiri’s family is now a real clan and the group of children and teenagers will be at the center of events in James Cameron’s new work. In addition to Spider, there will be Neteyam, the eldest son of the protagonists played by Jamie Flatters, Lo’ak, the second son played by Britain Dalton and Tuktirey, the eight-year-old girl played by Trinity Bliss.
