More than a decade after the premiere of Avatar, we’re actually getting pretty close to seeing a sequel film. And during CinemaCon, Avatar 2 revealed some key new details about the feature and its release. Here’s what the event unveiled about the feature.

Avatar 2 Official Title

First, Disney unveiled the official title of the film: Avatar: The Way of Water. The James Cameron feature will officially debut overseas on December 14. The US release will follow shortly after, on December 16.

Avatar 2 Trailer Release

Next, we got a release date for the official Avatar 2 trailer. Disney will pair it with the theatrical release of upcoming Marvel blockbuster Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. That film premieres next week on May 6. The Avatar: The Way of Water trailer will run exclusively in theaters for a week before dropping online.

Avatar Theatrical Re-Release

To celebrate the release of Avatar 2 (and to give everyone a much-needed reminder about what actually happens in the original film), the first Avatar movie will get a theatrical re-release. The original Cameron film will hit theaters worldwide this fall starting September 23.

About Avatar 2

Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) lives with his newfound family formed on the planet of Pandora. Once a familiar threat returns to finish what was previously started, Jake must work with Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) and the army of the Na’vi race to protect their planet.

The sequel also stars Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet, Michelle Yeoh, Stephen Lang, Giovanni Ribisi, Oona Chaplin, Jermaine Clement and more.
