Sigourney Weaver Talks About Her New Navi Character In The Sequel to Avatar: The Way Of Waters ...

James Cameron is well-known for his 2009 smash hit Avatar. Fans have waited over a decade to return to Pandora thanks to the delays in the movies, although excitement has been boosted by Disney theme parks during the holiday season. Sigourney Weaver recently revealed the training she took to play her new Navi character in the film.

The Sigourney Weaver and James Cameron had a great working relationship that was on full display throughout the first Avatar film. Fans were also interested in seeing how the Alien icon would play Jake and Neytiri's young Navi daughter Kiri, who will be brought to life thanks to motion capture and extensive visual effects in the sequels. Weaver talked about her knowledge of filming The Way of Water to Interview Magazine.

My first reaction is, I cant do that. I wont try to express myself as a wuss, but I think that everyone enjoys working with Jim because he demands so much from him. We had to do a lot of freediving. I'm grateful that we spent a year doing that.

Then there's that. While the cast was filming the Avatar sequels, Sigourney Weavers' appearance will be dramatically altered thanks to the post-production process for Avatar: The Way of Waters. She still had to exert all of her effort to bring Kiri to life. That includes picking things up like parkour and freediving.

Sigourney Weavers' remarks to the Interview demonstrate how much effort goes into executing a film like Avatar: The Way of Water. While it's already a challenge enough, she and her co-stars like Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, and newcomer Kate Winslet also did some amazing physical work to make the project a reality.

The cast of Avatar 2 performed an enormous amount of underwater work that has been hailed as a record. As a result, taut images of her filming at the bottom of a pool have quickly gone viral. Sigourney Weaver talked about learning free diving.

We were doing these still breathe-ups with our teacher, Kirk Krack, who teaches the Navy Seals. We were breathing up on, I think, at least 50 percent oxygen, so you have the advantage of more oxygen in your tissues, and then you would lie very still, not moving and holding your breath. My husband is from Hawaii and he is a big swimmer and bodysurfer. We both one day held our breath for six and a half minutes.

The Avatar cast had to train their bodies and minds to endure such a long time as the action sequences in the next sequels.

The Way of Water, a sequel to Avatar, is coming to an end. After years of delays, the first of many sequels will arrive in time for Christmas this year. And given Shazam 2's recent delay, James Cameron's should be even less competitive.

Avatar: The Way of Water will be released on December 16th. In the meantime, make sure to check out the release dates for 2022 to plan your next film experience.
