Avatar, which was released all the way back in 2009, is still the highest grossing movie of all time. It’s a somewhat surprising statistic. Not that it wasn’t a great movie, it was. Given the incredible amount of hype that surrounds franchises like Marvel and Star Wars, it’s a testament to just how groundbreaking Avatar really was, and still is today.
Avatar sequel trailer will play ahead of Doctor Strange 2
According to Jeff Sneider of The Ankler, Disney are planning to leverage their intellectual properties by giving fans their first glimpse of the Avatar sequel ahead of what could be the biggest movie of 2022, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. That movie is slated for release on May 6th, 2022. This gives fans plenty of time to get excited about the release of Avatar 2 which isn’t scheduled to release until December 16th, 2022.
If you’re thinking that seven months is a long time in advance to release a trailer, you’d be correct. Typically, the trailer would drop much closer to a film’s release date. However, considering fans have been waiting over TWELVE YEARS for the sequel, an exception should be made.
The movie will return to Pandora. The beautiful alien world inhabited by the Na’vi, a species of 10-foot tall, blue skinned humanoid creatures. No plot details have yet been revealed but we do know that many of the original cast are returning. Mainly, Sam Worthington as Jake Sully and Zoe Saldana as Neytiri.
As always, thanks for reading.
