Avatar: The Way of Water’s current box office has surpassed the requirement to be judged successful, according to a recently disclosed report, ensuring the approval of more sequels beyond Avatar 3. Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, and Steven Lang all return in James Cameron’s much anticipated sci-fi extravaganza from 2009. In ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’, Neytiri’s (Saldana) and Jake Sully’s (Worthington) family are compelled to leave their home in the Pandoran jungles and go to its wide oceans, where they come across new cultures, incredible fauna, and the RDA’s colonial ambitions again.
According to Matthew Belloni of Puck News, the box office success of Avatar: The Way of Water has ensured the franchise’s continued prosperity on the big screen. The movie apparently earned more than the $1.4 billion threshold necessary by the Walt Disney Company for it to be deemed successful at the box office. Cameron had stated that the movie would need to gross $2 billion to break even. Avatar 4 and 5 are rumored to be approved, allowing the filmmaker to continue the series for as long as he previously planned. The box office shows that fan interest in the series is still robust despite the significant time interval between episodes.
What we know so far about the Avatar sequels
Though Avatar 3 has long been regarded as a certain, sequels and spin-offs were less likely because of Cameron’s declaration that he could change Avatar 3 to end the franchise if The Way of Water fails to meet expectations. The popularity of Avatar: The Way of Water, however, makes it more probable that Cameron will be able to continue the franchise after Avatar 3, which was produced concurrently with Avatar 2. David Thewlis and Oona Chaplin will join the franchise as new Na’vi characters in Avatar 3, along with the new and returning cast members from The Way of Water, while Michelle Yeoh will play human researcher Dr. Karina Mogue.
Producer John Landau has hinted that the Avatar trilogy will eventually visit Earth in the fifth movie, even though Avatar 3 will continue the story of Avatar: The Way of Water by examining a more violent Na’vi society focused on fire. Landau hinted that the Na’vi will visit the dying Earth, providing Neytiri a challenging fresh viewpoint on humanity distant from the imperialist RDA forces that have long plagued her world, while also hinting that Pandora would be further explored. Landau has also hinted that the sequels will progressively move away from the original characters and center on the younger generation as Jake and Neytiri’s offspring assume increasingly prominent roles.
With Cameron highlighting the episodic structure of the Avatar franchise in recent interviews, viewers will undoubtedly exhale in relief knowing that it is probable the director will be able to tell his complete story. Despite Landau and the now-returning Disney CEO Bob Iger confirming Avatar 4 and 5, Cameron’s candid remarks about the sequels presently in production underperforming and potentially forcing plans to change had people worried about whether the movies would ever be released. However, given that Avatar: The Way of Water allegedly exceeded the producers’ own expectations, viewers may probably anticipate more trips to Pandora in the near future.
Avatar: The Last Airbender vs. Avatar
When speaking of Avatar, some confusions normally arise comparing Avatar: The Last Airbender and Cameron’s Avatar. The cartoon series, Avatar: The Last Airbender returned to Netflix in the early stages of the pandemic, where it was reintroduced to fans all across the world. The story has recently gained a new generation of devoted followers, and there are plans to resurrect the IP with fresh endeavours.
The popularity of the Avatar theme, whichever version it may be, is certainly undeniable. Playstation games have adopted the theme in some of their released games such as the ‘Briks 2 Full Game Theme Avatar Bundle’ and similarly with slot games, such as the Avatars: Gateway Guardians that is available to play at top slot sites listed on online-slot.co.uk.
Avatar: The Last Airbender director claims that, ‘In 2004 we learned that we had to change the name of our show from “Avatar” to “Avatar the Last Airbender” because James Cameron already had the rights to a movie called Avatar. Now the sequel is called “The Way of Water.” If part 3 is called “The Firebending Masters” we riot’.
When it comes to Avatar and Avatar: The Last Airbender, it is simple to imagine how these titles could be misunderstood. There is some overlap between Avatar and Avatar: The Last Airbender, and it doesn’t help that the latter series is frequently abbreviated to Avatar as well. Both franchises feature some form of animation and have magical tales that defy the laws of reality. Beyond that, though, Cameron’s space opera couldn’t be more dissimilar from Aang’s valiant quest.
