Zoe Saldana said, “I know how popular Avatar is in Korea. I’m here to tell you about the journey of Avatar.”

The sequel to “Avatar”, “Avatar: The Way of Water” tells the story of the ruthless threats faced by the family of Jake Sully and Neytiri on the planet Pandora, their long journey and battles to survive, and the wounds they must endure.

Director Cameron said, “As a diver and explorer, I love the sea and the ocean very much. Many creatures in the ocean are endangered. In particular, dolphins are facing a crisis of disappearing.”

He continued, “This movie has meaning in exploration. It contains family and drama. It also delivers an emotional story. This is not a movie that ends at once. Rather than teaching, I want it to be a movie that makes you feel something. It turns what you feel about the sea into action.”

“Avatar: The Way of Water” will be officially out in theaters on December 14th.
