After more than a decade of waiting, fans can finally rejoice as the long-awaited sequel to the mega-blockbuster Avatar is finally here. Avatar: The Way of Water is the new addition to the Avatar franchise with a continuing story about Jake Sully and his quest to save his family on the planet of Pandora. With the film being a direct continuation of the story of the previous film, fans and audiences are excited to explore the new world of Avatar.
With the film taking as long as it did, it was no wonder the film was going to bring something that had never been seen before, and it also had to keep in mind that it kept the familiar faces from the first film to connect the dots to arrive to the current set of events. So the film had to rely on new additions to the cast as well as faces from the original film to push the boundaries of making something new entirely.
What Are The Roles Of Zoe Saldana And Kate Winslet In Avatar: The Way Of Water?
After traversing the world of Avatar from above the clouds and from the gargantuan treetops, James Cameron now takes us on a journey to the unexplored oceans of the extrasolar moon of Pandora. With this new vast sea of possibilities, there are additions to the cast of the film. Zoe Saldana reprises her role as Neytiri, along with the addition of Titanic actress Kate Winslet as Ronal.
Starting With the familiar character of Neytiri, Zoe Saldana is back to play her role as the Na’vi princess of the Omaticaya clan. She is the character who saves Jake Sully’s Avatar in the first film from an ambush by a pack of viperwolves. After they meet each other in the forest, Neytiri acts as Jake’s teacher until they fall in love with each other in the film. Now, she has become the mother of three children with Jake and is forced to flee to the Metkayina Clan as a refugee with her family.
Kate Winslet is the new addition to the franchise with her character of Ronal. She is the Tsahik, or the spiritual leader of the Metkayina Clan along with her husband. She is also the mother of Tsireya and Aonung, with an unborn child on its way. Ronal has a wise and strong personality as a warrior which makes her clash with Neytiri during the film.
