The wait for Avatar: The Way of Water is nearly over as we approach the finish line. Since the original Avatar became a mega blockbuster hit in late 2009, director/co-writer James Cameron’s newest film has been one of the most eagerly awaited sequels. Cameron has been assisting in turning up the buzz for the follow-up to the all-time biggest-earning movie because he understood he had to fan the flames.
CGI at a Whole New Level!
Delivering new material from The Way of Water, as well as a newly remastered version of Avatar, was part of this. A new image from the upcoming installment of the series has been revealed thanks to the reappearance of the genesis narrative that details Jake Sully’s voyage to Pandora and his attempt to ingratiate himself with The People. This brand-new clip, which is now a theatrical exclusive, highlights James Cameron’s breathtaking underwater technology and adds to what we already know about Avatar 2.
Why Avatar’s Underwater Technology Stands Out
People have understood that underwater performance capture is crucial to what will happen next since the first Avatar sequel’s production began. There have been several accounts of performers practicing for long underwater shots without the use of breathing apparatus along the way of this movie’s production. The most recent example of such efforts is this new sequence from Avatar: The Way of Water, which is just as amazing as the 3D developments for the 2009 film Avatar.
It takes some getting used to seeing this new advancement applied to Pandora and the Na’vi in Avatar 2, which has the High Frame Rate aesthetic. In addition to reminding viewers of Jake Sully’s initial voyage before December’s much-anticipated sequel, this is most likely the main reason James Cameron opted to remaster Avatar for a theatrical re-release. It pays off since the underwater motion capture is both gorgeous and natural.
Unrealistic animals and scenery are still being used as CGI improvements and to fill in gaps. The contact with actual water in Avatar: The Way of Water, however, simply serves to further muddy the distinction between those artificial components and the physical effects and actors used. Also, the underwater video is really stunning to watch. It’s now simple to understand why Cameron decided it was worthwhile to put off the creation of this sequel to perfect the technology that makes such a scenario come to life.
