The Avatar 2 team is celebrated for helping local kids via Wellington City Mission Toy Drive over Christmas, as producer Jon Landau shared.
The crew of Avatar 2 participates in the Wellington City Mission Toy Drive to deliver gifts to children at Christmas. Avatar 2 will continue the story of Jake Sully, a former Marine who joins the Na’vi, a race of humanoids who have a close connection with nature. The human race is set to return as the antagonist of the new film, returning to plundering Pandora’s natural resources to tackle the energy crisis in an allegory of environmentalism. Avatar 2 will take place partially on Earth and showcase the ocean life of Pandora.
The original Avatar in 2009, became the first film to exceed $ 2 billion at the box office and remains the highest grossing film of all time. However, despite the imaginative and revolutionary visuals, Avatar is known by some for his unsubtle storytelling and weak writing. While effects can enhance a film’s appeal, a good story is what remains with audiences after leaving the theater, something that previous James Cameron films Titanic and Terminator 2 were able to accomplish with their eye-catching effects. With Avatar 2 Already benefiting from impressive underwater visuals, it’s unclear whether the film will be able to surpass the original on a storytelling scale or simply relax on its laurels of effects, but without the benefit of the doubt that the first film received. With the sequel still a year away, audiences will have to wait and see if Avatar 2 can capture the success of the original.
Film producer Jon Landau posted on Instagram that the crew of Avatar 2 supported the Wellington City Mission in its efforts to provide toys for children at Christmas. Landau shared a photo of the donated toys, as well as an additional thank you to Dynamic Pilates for keeping them informed of the Wellington City Mission initiative. Wellington is the capital of New Zealand, where the Avatar the sequels were partially filmed. See Landau’s post below:
Avatar 2 is the first of four planned sequels to the original film, Cameron acknowledging the gamble of his ambitious plan for the Avatar sequelae. Avatar 2 was shot simultaneously with Avatar 3, leading to a much shorter gap in release dates. Filming began in 2017 and ended in September 2020. The films use a mix of live work and performance capture.
However, even if the filming is finished, it does not mean that the work is done for the Avatar team. They’re probably focusing on post-production for Avatar 2 and 3 before their releases over the next few years. It’s good that the crew still found time to support a worthy cause and make some children happier this holiday season. It’s a good way for them to give back to the country of New Zealand after spending so much time filming there. Hopefully, Landau’s message will help spread awareness of the City of Wellington’s mission and inspire others to donate to their own local charity in the New Year.
