Why did it take so long? 

Took 13 years later and 4 years to produce Avatar 2

The reason that the sequel was taking so long was because of the new technology  Cameron developed to showcase a new underwater world, which would use a system that is new motion-capture in sets built in New Zealand

Also the filmmaking team was determined to get the scripts written and done for all four planned Avatar sequels before the shooting Avatar 2 even started




After all that time fans were either happy or disappointed with the final result.

Both of us being fans of the first Avatar movie, we were frantically waiting for the sequel and we weren’t disappointed. I’d say its pretty normal for a sequel to not be as good or liked as the original but I was quite happy seeing it.

It feels as though it was less confusing and the plot was good. This story plot has probably been used dozens of times but they executed it perfectly. From the acting to the water CGI. Its really hard to make film in water and make it look good but the finished product blew our minds.
