Director James Cameron has shared photos from the upcoming Avatar sequels for a recently-published Entertainment Weekly interview. As Avatars 2, 3, 4, and 5 are all on their way–and together they cost $1 billion to produce–this is our first look at what $250 million on the screen in a single sequel looks like.
In one of the newly-released photos, Cameron stands next to Edie Falco’s General Ardmore in the flight deck of a dragon gunship from the first movie. The photos also offer a look at the sequel’s ambitious underwater performance capture scenes. Check out the new photos from Avatar 2 below.
