The highly-anticipated return of “Avatar” is closer than fans may imagine. The star-studded world premiere of 20th Century Studios’ “Avatar: The Way of Water” was held Wednesday (Dec. 7) evening at London’s Leicester Square. Check out a gallery of the cast and attendees inside.
The screening brought the fantasy world of Avatar to life with its all star cast and crew. Some attendees included cast members Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Kate Winslet, Joel David Moore, Jamie Flatters, Trinity Jo-Li Bliss, Jack Champion, Brendan Cowell, Bailey Bass, director, producer, writer and editor James Cameron and producer Jon Landau.
Other celebrity guests included John Boyega, who attended with cast member Joel David Moore. He was pleasantly taking photos with fans on and off the red carpet.
The entire cast, crew and world premiere attendees were blessed with a sneak peek of the film before it opens in theaters on Friday, Dec. 16. They were serenaded by an orchestra on stage and the stars of the film gathered to talk candidly about the years-long making of the movie.
Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, “Avatar: The Way of Water” begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure.
