Director James Cameron and producer John Landau flew to New Zealand to continue filming Avatar-2, which was suspended due to quarantine restrictions.
This was reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
Work on the second part of Avatar was discontinued in mid-March after the New Zealand government banned the entry of foreigners to stop the spread of the new coronavirus.
In his Instagram post, Landau posted a photograph of the ship, which will be shown in a future film.
“Nothing can be more exciting than returning to New Zealand next week. Look at the Matador, the high-speed advanced command ship (below) and the Picador boat (above) … ”wrote Landau.
And two days ago, John Landau published a photo after getting off the plane.
The long-awaited sequels to the film “Avatar” in 2009 were to be completed by the end of 2020, while work on four films is being conducted simultaneously. Currently, the release date for Avatar-2 is December 17, 2021, and subsequent films will be released in December 2023, December 2025, and December 2027.
Wellington’s Weta Digital will continue to work on visual effects on films that have reportedly budgeted for $ 1.65 billion New Zealand dollars ($ 1 billion).
