A new trailer for Avatar 2 has dropped and we couldn't be more excited.
Halloween is over and there's one date on everyone's minds - the most wonderful time of the year.
No, it's not Christmas Day, it's 16 December, otherwise known as Avatar: The Way of the Water's release date.
As if it wasn't enough to get us excited that director James Cameron is blessing us with a follow up to his 2009 hit, the arrival of a second trailer might just do the trick.
And it's safe to say fans are excited, taking to Twitter to share their reactions.
One viewer just needed four words to express their delight over the new trailer, writing: "Awesome........ Super..... Mind blowing......"
Another excited fan commented: "The whole world is waiting to see this movie Avatar The Way Of Water . @JimCameron. Stunning visuals."
The trailer indeed promises some stunning sights in the new film, from incredible underwater scenes and impressive sea monsters to images of fire and destruction throughout the world of Pandora.
According to actor Zoë Yadira Saldaña-Perego, who plays Neytiri in the highly-anticipated film, it took her just 20 minutes into the watching the new film to leave her in tears.
As Saldana recounted: "I can get choked up just talking about it because I was able to see just 20 minutes of the second installment right before the year ended, last year.
"And I was speechless, I was moved to tears."
Cameron also spoke out about the franchise's follow-up films, as he explained on a video call with longtime collaborator Arnold Schwarzenegger: "We're a hundred percent complete on Avatar 2 and we're sort of ninety-five percent complete on Avatar 3," he confirmed, much to the delight of fans everywhere.
The director then added that he felt 'very lucky' to have chosen New Zealand for the film shoot as it helped them film the sequel while under Covid restrictions.
"We made the first film here in New Zealand, and it's ranked either first or second best country in the world for its Covid response – sometimes Germany's in the number one spot, sometimes New Zealand's in the number one spot.
"But we're actually able to operate."
Avatar 2 is set to premiere on 16 December, but the story won't end there as it's set to be followed by another three instalments in the coming years, ending with Avatar 5.
