Avatar remains the highest grossing movie of all time, briefly losing the crown to Avengers: Endgame in 2019, but leapfrogging back into the top spot after a shrewd re-release. 13 years after it debuted a sequel to James Cameron’s pioneering sci-fi action film has landed in cinemas.
The film sees Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver, and Stephen Lang return, despite the fact that two of their characters died in the first movie. The plot is very similar to the first film in the series, as Jake Sully finds himself defending Pandora and the Na’vi from Colonel Miles Quaritch and the colonisers once again.
Is there a post-credits scene in Avatar: The Way of the Water?
Unfortunately The Way of the Water does not have an end credits scene, although the credits are accompanied by some fantastic visual effects and artwork that are worth sticking around for.
This time around, once the credits roll, that’s it. Given that The Way of the Water has a run time of 192 minutes many viewers may be glad to know that they can leave without having to sit through 10 minutes of credits, no matter how good the accompanying visuals are.
The Way of the Water takes place over a decade after the first film, and Jake Sully is now living as a Chief on Pandora with Neytiri and their family. Their peace is disrupted when humans return to Pandora to colonise the planet. Quaritch, who was killed in the first movie, returns, having been cloned as a Na’vi with his memories uploaded before his death.
Quaritch’s son, Spider, who has been stranded on Pandora since the last film, is taken by his father who plans to use him against the Na’vi, prompting Jake and his family to leave their Omaticaya tribe and join the Metkayina people on the coast.
