The new Avatar 2 set photos were revealed by EW, who talked to Cameron about the journey to create the Avatar sequels. One photo gives us a look at Cameron standing alongside Edie Falco's General Ardmore standing in the flight deck of a dragon gunship from the first film. The photos also share a look at Avatar 2's ambitious underwater performance capture scenes. Check out the photos here:

Cameron said the process was "kind of crazy", which isn't surprising since the sequel entered planning phases way back in 2012. The situation of the sci-fi franchise is also unique because we already know that multiple sequels are coming within the next decade, and that the films cost $1 billion to produce (about $250 million per film).
