PHOTOS: Avatar 2 Starts Live Action Filming

Avatar 2 is a work in progress– and now we’re learning crews have begun the live action filming part of the process.

Producer Jon Landau says Cliff Curtis, who plays Tonowari in the sequels, surprised Director James Cameron with a special Māori blessing to kick off live action filming.

In an Instagram post, Landau said:

Was blown away. I had asked Cliff Curtis if he would surprise Jim on the first day of live action filming by doing a small Māori blessing. Cliff showed up with 42 members of his family from the Ngati Rongomai tribe. All of whom made the 7-hour bus ride to give the entire crew the treat of a lifetime with beautiful original Waiata Songs and a powerful original Haka. To Cliff and his family, thank you. Aroha nui. 

Avatar 2 is currently filming in New Zealand. The film is set to hit theaters December 17, 2021.
