Avatar 2 Plot
Not too many details about Avatar: They Way of Water’s plot have been released but we do know the story will follow Jake Sully and Neytiri, who have formed a family on Pandora since the events of the first film, as they face a threat and have to once again protect their planet.
Producer Jon Landau told Entertainment Weekly that “ultimately, the [Avatar] sequels are a story about family, and the lengths parents will go through to keep that family together and keep them safe.”
