Avatar 2: Kate Winslet's Character Is One Of The 'Sea People'

James Cameron is coming back to the Avatar franchise, and he's bringing along Titanic star Kate Winslet for the ride. With the movie planning to expand the world of Pandora, Cameron has confirmed what kind of role Winslet is set to play in the Avatar sequel.

Talking to Vanity Fair, Cameron confirms that Winslet will be playing one of the reef/sea people in the movie. With the first movie focusing more on the Na'vi whose domain is on the ground and in the skies, it would be cool to see what kind of culture the so-called Metkayina have.

Cameron also opened up about how adamant Winslet was about doing her own water-work. She says:

"The one thing she did do is demand that she do all her own water work. I said, ‘All right, that's fine, we'll have to teach you how to free dive.' The other actors are up to three- and four-minute breath holds. We've already been doing underwater capture. We did a scene last week with six teenagers, well, actually five teenagers and one 7-year-old underwater holding their breath for a couple minutes and acting, actually doing a dialogue scene under water because they speak kind of a sign language."

With the sequel set to come out in 2020, it may be a while before we get any great promo material for the film. With James Cameron's knack for taking time with his movies, though, fans are almost always dead certain that the Avatar sequel will be nothing short of a spectacle.

Avatar is set to have four more sequels, and the first one is set to release on Dec. 18, 2020.
