A teaser trailer for the long-awaited Avatar: The Way of Water has been released, giving viewers a brief taste of what to expect from the film in December.
Vatar: The Way Of Water follows the first Avatar film which, after its 2009 release, became the highest-grossing film of all time and went on to win three Oscars.
The teaser for the second installment opens with a group of avatars in incredible scenery, jumping along rocks and greenery suspended above the clouds.
Along with returning cast members including Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver, Avatar: The Way of Water will also join the cast including Kate Winslet, Michelle Yeoh, Vin Diesel and Eddie Falco.
The teaser featured several scenes set in the ocean, with avatars flying across the water on the backs of dragon-like creatures, as well as swimming underwater on the backs of equally mysterious-looking animals.
The clip includes just one line of dialogue spoken by Jake Sully, who is voiced by Worthington, 45.
“I know one thing. Wherever we go, this family is our fortress,” he says at the end of the teaser.
With the trailer, Disney has confirmed that the film, directed by James Cameron and set more than a decade after the events of the first film, will begin telling the story of the Sully family — Jake, Netiri, and their children.
