‘Namaste India…’: Avatar 2 producer Jon Landau writes a special message for Indians


Avatar 2’s producer Jon Landau has a special message for Indian fans. Prior to the release of Avatar: The Way of Water, Landau took to Twitter and wrote a heartfelt note to fans.

He wrote: “Namaste India! See you. Your diversity never ceases to amaze me. I am so excited that you are going to experience #AvatarTheWayOfWater in 6 languages ​​- English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. Let’s return to Pandora on December 16. Enjoy the Kannada trailer.”

In addition to his special message, Jon unveiled the trailer of the film in the Kannada language. Avatar, released in 2009 and emerging as the highest-grossing film of all time, grossed more than $2.9 billion worldwide. The sequels were announced in 2011 by director James Cameron. And finally, on December 16, the second part of the film will be released. 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. It is directed by James Cameron. Cameron recently revealed that it took at least 13 years to come up with the screenplay for Avatar 2.

According to Variety, Cameron shared that before “Avatar: The Way of Water,” an entire “Avatar 2” screenplay was written and then tossed in the trash. It turns out that at least an entire year of the 13-year gap between 2009’s “Avatar” and “The Way of Water” in 2022 was spent on a scenario that will never see the light of day.

The director said, “When I sat down with my writers to start Avatar 2, I said we can’t do the next one until we understand why the first one did so well.” “We need to crack the code on what the hell happened.” Cameron and his team came up with the solution.

He said: “All movies work on different levels. The first is surface, which is character, problem and resolution. The second is thematic. What is the film trying to say? But ‘Avatar’ also works on a third level, the subconscious. I wrote a whole script for the sequel, read it and realized it didn’t make it to level 3. Boom. Start over. That took a year.”

During an appearance on “The Marianne Williamson Podcast” last year, Cameron delved deeper into this third level that he believes led to “Avatar” becoming the highest-grossing film of all time at the global box office. Last year, on a The Marianne Williamson Podcast show, Cameron revealed that more on this third level, according to Variety, has allowed “Avatar” to become the highest-grossing film of all time, according to Variety.

He said, “There was also a tertiary level… it was a dreamy sense of a desire to be there, to be in that space, to be in a place that’s safe and where you wanted to be.”

“Whether that was flying, that feeling of freedom and excitement, or whether it was in the woods where you can smell the earth. It was something sensory communicating on such a deep level. That was the spirituality of the first film. ” 20th Century Studios India will release Avatar: The Way of Water in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam on December 16, 2022.
