Avatar: Water pathThe first trailer has finally arrived, and, surprisingly, carries a noticeable amount of heat.
When was the last time we saw Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) in the first Avatar, he would more or less become Na’vi’s savior after being adopted into their tribe, forgiven for being a human spy, and eventually decided to side with the aliens in their fight against humanity to save Pandora. By transferring his consciousness into the body of his human / Na’vi hybrid avatar, Jake was able to start a new life on Pandora – whose atmosphere is poisonous to humans – along with his chosen Na’vi friend, Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña).
While Jake and Neytiri return The path of waterThe first trailer, this time, is not just the two of them. In the time between the first film and The path of water, Jake and Neytiri have had children, and the trailer features a number of footage that draws attention to how important the Na’vi family’s growth will be to the film’s story. In addition to Na’vi’s child, the trailer also features footage of Jake and Neytiri caring for a seemingly man who has to wear a special mask to survive on the planet.
The presence of a human child raises some questions about how the Earth reacted to the Na’vi who defended his attempt to Pandora steal her valuable unobtanium, but the implication is that humanity could not turn away in the end. In addition to a series of new views of Pandora’s Metkayin coastal reefs, the trailer also reflects footage of Na’vi dressed in combat gear like humans and with weapons, suggesting that humans have only doubled the use of avatars as weapons of war.
Vague as The path of waterThe plot is simply judging by the trailer, all the necessary elements for the story of the Na’vi who are forced to defend their homes from invaders of hungry resources – again – are present. For any other franchise, such a clear premise may not be enough to get people moving to the cinema, but with all the hype Avatar: Water pathAccumulated before publication, it could serve.
Avatar: Water path arrives in theaters on December 16th.
