Landau also addressed the film's return to New Zealand, and he praised the crew members in the country for their work on the sequel.
This movie is bound to focus on Jake and Neytiri, and they will be seen exploring the different part of Pandora, they will also spend alot of time in the water. The producer said that people turn to entertainment to explore a new world and escape their problems. I think it is to escape, to escape from the world we live in, to escape from other pressures that they suffer in their lives. "I think with Avatar, we have an opportunity to allow people to escape to an incredible world with incredible characters that they will follow, in much the same way as Peter Jackson was able to do with Lord of the Rings, so that's what we're looking forward to doing". We've heard that Avatar 2 will feature a lot of aquatic environments, and Landau has elaborated a bit on why that is. Most of the filming is taking place underwater with the performance capture technology being used to record the facial expressions of the actors.More news: Protests Over George Floyd's Death Flare Across US, Minneapolis Mayor Announces Curfew

A previously released picture from "Avatar 2" production set showed Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, and Worthington taking a break from filming in the massive water tank.More news: Lord Of The Rings: Cast Reunites For A Better Cause
