Avatar: The Way of Water Trailer Shows Us That Water Is the Way (Maybe?)

It’s been over a decade since James Cameron’s first Avatar movie graced the big screen. After several delays, however, it looks like the first of Cameron’s four (yes, that’s right, four) sequels, Avatar: The Way of Water, will be coming to theaters this year, whether we care about it or not.

To celebrate the occasion, 20th Century Studios released a teaser trailer, which you can watch above.

This teaser trailer really doubles down on the word teaser and shows the Na’vi riding on animals in the air and on the sea to dramatic music. It doesn’t shed much light, however, on what the story is actually about. The movie’s official logline doesn’t give us much more on that front, either. Check it out for yourself:

Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure.


Avatar: The Way of Water stars Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement, and Kate Winslet.

If you have trouble remembering who Jake and Neytiri Sully are (played respectively by Worthington and Saldana) there’s good news for you—the original Avatar film will be in theaters once again starting September 23 to get us all back into the Avatar spirit before Avatar: The Way of Water premieres on December 16.
