Avatar: The Manner of Water’s first trailer is lastly right here, and, surprisingly, it’s packing a conspicuous quantity of warmth.
When final we noticed Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) within the first Avatar, he’d kind of turn into the Na’vi’s savior after being adopted into their tribe, forgiven for being a human spy, and in the end deciding to aspect with the aliens of their combat in opposition to humanity to save lots of Pandora. By transferring his consciousness into the physique of his human / Na’vi hybrid avatar, Jake was in a position to begin a brand new life on Pandora — whose ambiance is poisonous to people — alongside his chosen Na’vi mate, Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña).
Whereas Jake and Neytiri make their return in The Manner of Water’s first trailer, this time round, it isn’t simply the 2 of them. Within the time between the primary movie and The Manner of Water, Jake and Neytiri have had kids, and there are a variety of pictures within the trailer drawing consideration to how the expansion of Na’vi households can be essential to the film’s story. Along with a Na’vi youngster, the trailer additionally options pictures of Jake and Neytiri caring for a seemingly human one who has to put on a particular masks so as to survive on the planet.
The human youngster’s presence raises some questions on how Earth reacted to the Na’vi keeping off its try and rob Pandora of its helpful unobtanium, however the implication is that humanity couldn’t be deterred ultimately. Together with a slew of recent seems to be at Pandora’s coastal Metkayina reefs, the trailer additionally spotlights pictures of Na’vi clothed in human-like fight gear and sporting weapons, suggesting that the people have solely doubled down on their use of avatars as weapons of struggle.
Unclear as The Manner of Water’s plot is solely judging from the trailer, all the mandatory components for a narrative concerning the Na’vi being compelled to defend their properties from resource-hungry invaders — once more — are current. For another franchise, a premise that easy won’t be sufficient to maneuver folks to theaters, however with all of the hype Avatar: The Manner of Water’s constructed up forward of its launch, it would do the trick.
Avatar: The Manner of Water hits theaters on December sixteenth.
