The sea vessels look massive and intimidating, and will likely be the ships used by the humans to traverse the mostly water-covered world that Avatar 2 will be exploring.
Landau has also released a brand new behind-the-scenes photo revealing that the films' massive sets are ready to go for filming!
But Landau, who is based in the United States, wrote on Instagram on Friday that "we couldn't be more excited to be headed back to New Zealand next week". "Check out the Matador, a high speed forward command vessel (bottom) and the Picador jetboat (top) - can't wait to share more", Landau captioned his post.
With most Hollywood productions still shut down, the "Avatar" sequels would be the first major films to resume production after the industry-wide pause. In the case of the former, the crew will be getting back to work in the coming days, and producer Jon Landau has now shared a very intriguing behind the scenes photo. "So it's all on hold right now".
"We were about to shoot down in New Zealand, so that got pushed".
"But my work is on the stage doing the virtual cameras and so on, so I can do a bit of editing, but it's not great for me".
Released in 2009, James Cameron's sci-fi epic "Avatar" revolutionized movie grossing a then-record $2.79 billion at the worldwide box office (the record was of course broken in 2019 by Avengers: Endgame).
Avatar 2 is aiming for a December 27, 2021 release, and three more sequels are set to quickly follow in December 2023, December 2025, and December 2027.
