Even though we are still several years away from the film’s release in theaters, director James Cameron and the cast of the upcoming Avatar sequels have already started work on the films.
When Cameron journey’s back into the world of Pandora, his new venture will reunite him with Titanic star Kate Winslet (at least for one of the sequels that we know of so far). In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Cameron spoke about how Winslet is preparing for her role. He said:
“She’s very excited about it. She blazed through for a couple of days of rehearsals and saw the world that we had created, and how we do the work, and she’s very excited.”
Cameron then went on to spill the very first details describing Winslet’s character and that she’s doing her own water work for the film! He continued:
“She plays a character who’s part of the Sea People, the reef people. The one thing she did do is demand that she do all her own water work. I said, “All right, that’s fine, we’ll have to teach you how to free dive.” The other actors are up to three- and four-minute breath holds. We’ve already been doing underwater capture. We did a scene last week with six teenagers, well, actually five teenagers and one 7-year-old underwater holding their breath for a couple minutes and acting, actually doing a dialogue scene under water because they speak kind of a sign language.”
Already, the film sounds absolutely enchanting but is still at least 3 years away from its release date! Avatar 2 is expected to hit theaters on December 18, 2020.
