New Avatar 2 Photo Has The Cast Floating In A Pool Filled With Balls
Filming for Avatar 2 took place in a 900,000 gallon pool.
While Avatar 2 isn't hitting theaters until December 17, 2021, we're getting a closer look at the filming process while we wait. The official Twitter account for the movie franchise has been revealing photos from the filming process, and a new one has arrived.
Recently, some photos from the set were released showing off the pool where filming was taking place. Now, the cast is hanging out in the pool, filming some underwater sequences. Check out the photo below.

Fun fact: Much of the performance capture took place in this 900,000 gallon tank, built specifically for the sequels. pic.twitter.com/NSfqoZ6jXJ
As the Avatar account explained before, the balls in the pool are to prevent light from interfering with the filming underwater. In the pool is Zoe Saldana, reprising her role as Neytiri; Sam Worthington, reprising his role as Jake Sully; Kate Winslet, playing Ronal; and Cliff Curtis, playing Tonowari.
In addition to the actors in the photo, Avatar 2 will also star Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Vin Diesel, Michelle Yeoh, and Jemaine Clement. Filming for the live-action parts of Avatar 2 wrapped in November.
Alongside the on-set photos, concept art for the world of Pandora has also been released. The 2021 movie isn't the only one planned through. There are three more Avatar movies scheduled for 2023, 2025, and 2027. However, whether or not the two latter films release all depends on the box office performance of the first sequel.
