The movie “Avatar” came out in 2009, and now “Avatar: The Way of Water” is coming to theaters on Dec. 16 because it’s been too long since a new one came out.

The Avatar movie is going to have some previous original actors as well as some new actors like Jack Champion, who will play as Javier Socorro. From the original Avatar Cast, Sam Worthington will return as Jake Sully and Zoe Saldaña as Neytiri along with some others.

The production team has a budget of $250 million USD and the editors are James Cameron, Stephen E. Rivkin, John Refoua, David Brennerand. The cinematographer is Russell Carpenter, who worked with director James Cameron to make Avatar 2 possible.

Why has Avatar 2 taken so long? The film has suffered multiple setbacks and delays and it’s said to have taken its time because James Cameron needed the right technology to film motion capture underwater, according to Avatar Overview.
