Can’t believe people still care about this franchise. I thought it was quietly canceled years ago.
Probably not gonna watch it. I couldn’t remember much of the first movie 2 weeks after watching it, and I don’t care enough to remind myself of the mediocre plot of a vfx showcase.

these shots from the Avatar 2 teaser in particular I found to be very technically impressive, the water interaction is flawless and the skin feels real in all levels of light pic.twitter.com/KwlpXqVhTQ
