Sigourney Weaver (73) appearsas Sam Washington’s teenage daughter in “Avatar” sequel after death rumors 

The 73-year-old Sigourney Weaver is turning ageless with her surprising appearance in the sequel of “Avatar”. 

On November 3rd (local time), American media site Screenrant reported that after Sigourney Weaver’s character, Dr. Grace, lost her life in the first movie of “Avatar”, the actress is re-appearing as Kiri, a teenage character.

In particular, the new trailer shows Jake Sully (Sam Washington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), who have become Na’vi, appear as parents of four children. Then, their teenage daughter Kiri can be seen saying, “I feel her. I can feel her heart beating. She’s very close”.

“There is a chance that Kiri is referring to Pandora’s heartbeat itself, given the strong connection the Na’vi have with their planet,” Screenrant said.

They also added, “However, the decision to have Sigourney Weaver play Kiri seemingly links her to Dr. Grace in some fashion. This could mean that Kiri hears Dr. Grace’s heartbeat after she dies at the Tree of Souls and unites with the planet’s deity, Eywa.”

In addition, it is pointed out that only Sigourney Weaver’s new character can hear “her heartbeat” in the “Avatar” sequel, which may alludes to her unique connection with Pandora and Dr. Grace.

Therefore, the media concluded that “It is possible that part of Avatar 2’s story is about Kiri searching for Dr. Grace’s memories and attempting to bring her back to life.”

On the other hand, the production team of “Avatar 2” introduced that the trailer will deal with “the plight of the Sully family, their journey to protect each other’s safety, the battle they fight to survive, and the tragedy that this family endures.”

Earlier, on October 28th, The Hollywood Reporter reported that the running time of “Avatar: The Way of Water”, is 3 hours and 10 minutes.

This is longer than “Avengers: Endgame” (3 hours 2 minutes) and shorter than “Titanic”. (3 hours 14 minutes). It is also longer than “Avatar”, which was released in December 2009 and ran for 2 hours and 41 minutes.

The media said, “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, movies are getting longer”, and added that many Hollywood films are now more than two and a half hours long.


On the other hand, Sigourney Weaver was previously reported as having passed away at the age of 73. However, it has since been confirmed that she is still alive and healthy, and the death rumor was false.
