Over the past few weeks here at MickeyBlog we’ve been sharing some updated details regarding Avatar 2. We know that this film will have a water theme, the Sigourney Weaver WILL return and the crew even shared images of the awesome tech used to bring this state-of-the-art film to life!
Today, we’ve got another exciting image to share with you. and that is Kate Winslet on set! Winslet will be playing the character of Ronal in the film. As CinemaBlend points out, not much is known about this new character. However, we do know that she is a free-diver from the Metkayina clan of the Na’vi.
As part of the shooting for the film, extensive motion capture work is being carried out in a 90,000-gallon tank! And image was posted on Twitter that shows Winslet along with Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington and Cliff Curtis taking a break from the underwater performance capture.

The image above was taken on set in New Zealand prior to the set needing to be shut down due to Coronavirus concerns. As we reported this week at MickeyBlog, the country will begin to ease social distancing restrictions which may mean that production on the film can resume shortly.
As we previously reported here at MickeyBlog, the Twitter account for Avatar has started updating content more regularly. This includes some incredible concept art as well as the shots about of Cameron directing the actors in a water tank.
Production on the hotly anticipated sequels began all the way back in 2017 and Avater 2 through Avatar 5 are said to have a combined budget of more than $1 billion.
