As it had already been announced, Avatar 2, the first of the sequels in history, will hit theaters in December 2022.

During an interview with the New York Times, Sigourney Weaver revealed great details about this training for Avatar 2. The actress, who returns to the belt as Dr. Grace Augustine (who by the way was not disclosed how she returns), explains that he dived in Hawaii and Florida, landing on the bottom of the ocean with stingrays around him. For example, he said that the cast of the film had to learn not to make very typical gestures, such as closing their eyes in the water.

And that was not all! He also said that they were undergoing training for a military team, who taught them to hold their breath underwater for as long as possible to make it easier for James Cameron to take very long shots. Following this, Sigourney Weaver managed to hold her breath underwater for six minutes. The actress also said that these scenes from Avatar 2 were shot in a giant water tank and the actors carried weights to stay submerged. Of course, professional divers helped them to get out to breathe.
