It''s no secret that Avatar: The Way of Water will be available in theaters this December, and that Disney will be re-releasing the original 2009 film tomorrow (September 23). However, it appears like Disney will all in to get butts in seats, including throwing a fresh post-credit scene into the mix.
Avatar now has a scene at the end of the Marvel style credits, according to many sources. It''s not a special scene, per se, but a film from the upcoming sequel.
If Im being honest, this isn''t a huge surprise. The original Avatar came before Hollywood fell in love with post-credit scenes, not that director James Cameron appears to be the type to include one teasing a sequel that took 13 years to arrive. This is the ideal opportunity for Disney to market the sequel.
The thrill here is that the screenings focused on different teaser clips at the end. It''s not like seeing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and seeing the same Avatar 2 trailer no matter how many times you go in.
People on Reddit are already discussing which scenes they got, and they do indeed appear to be different. Others might include a water tribe with Maori like Na''vi, and Jake and his kid with some sort of alien whale. Others may be revealed as the film opens in countries beyond France and Korea.
The re-release of The Avatar is notable for a number of reasons, beyond the fact that a sequel is coming. The main draw is that director James Cameron has altered the film, providing enhanced visuals and sound, while also increasing the resolution to 4K something that hasn''t been done before.
This month, Disney pulled the remake of Disney Plus, seemingly in anticipation of the release. There is no word on when the movie will return to the service, so you may pay for either a theater ticket or a Blu-ray.
The re-release has received a great reception on Twitter (opens in a new tab), although it will be much easier to wade through if you can speak French. Apparently, the remastered visuals on the big-screen are incredible.
If youre big on the whole cinema experience, or you want to watch Avatar on the big-screen, it may be worthwhile picking up a ticket. I just hope the scenes on offer aren''t as dull as the first trailer.
Remember that Avatar is about three hours long. James Cameron might have given audiences a blanket permission to take a pee break, but that might imply losing some of the action. Be prepared for it, in other words.
