In order to set the stage for the following two movies, James Cameron plans to explore the oceans of Pandora.

Sources claim that negotiations to release the film in China have been ongoing for weeks. But the official statement only surfaced two days after the shocking news. Bob Iger will take over as CEO of the Walt Disney Company again, ousting Bob Chapek.
In the sequel, a number of other characters from the original movie will also appear.
Including Sigourney Weaver, but some will take on different roles. James Cameron has said that Avatar: The Way of Water would have its own concluding arc and won’t end on a cliffhanger.
