Avatar 2 is finally upon us, taking fans back to Pandora after a whopping 13-year wait, and the film looks to be another visually stunning watch, if the trailers and Avatar reactions and reviews are anything to go by.
It was later confirmed she is playing Grace's 15-year-old daughter, Kiri. Cameron himself explained that she was born of Grace's avatar, despite the latter being \"brain-dead,\" before being adopted by Jake and Neytiri.
Box office watchers don't expect \"Avatar 2\" to slow down any time soon. The film has a clear runway to continue raking in ticket sales and is expected to have a firm grip on IMAX, Dolby and other premium display formats until the release of \"Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania\" next month.
Watching a movie while sitting in a comfortable theater seat with a box of popcorn that will likely be finished before the ads and trailers begin - it's an experience many movie fans enjoy. Some viewers try to relive the experience they felt when they first saw one particular film by attending the same one again, such as Guinness World Record 2022 holder for watching Spider-Man: No Way Home 292 times in theaters.
Avatar: The Way of Water is expected to release in theaters on December 16, 2022. However, many viewers might not remember what the 2009 film was about. Avatar (2009) focused on a paraplegic Marine assigned to understand the culture and way of life among the \"Na'vi\", the native inhabitants of Pandora.

Kiri te Suli Kìreysì'ite is a fourteen-year-old Na'vi, the adopted daughter of Jake Sully and Neytiri, and the biological daughter of Grace Augustine's avatar. She is one of the main characters in Avatar: The Way of Water.
Kiri's conception is shrouded in mystery. She is unlike any Na'vi or avatar that the Omatikaya have ever met before. From a very early age, she has had an unusually strong connection to Eywa, even more than that of a tsahìk.
Kiri is the biological daughter of Grace Augustine's avatar body, which was rendered brain-dead after Grace had passed away. Jake and Neytiri adopted Kiri after she was born. As she was born around the same time as Neteyam, they were both simultaneously given a first connection to Eywa at the Tree of Souls in front of the entire Omatikaya clan. Despite the mystery surrounding her conception, she is a naturally born Na'vi who was raised in the rainforests of Pandora. Her biological father, if she even has one, remains unknown. Because Grace had an avatar body, Kiri possesses human-like traits such as her eyebrows and five fingers on her hands. She also lacks the elongated canines common amongst the Na'vi.
After her parents and brothers returned from a successful raid on a RDA Mag-Lev Train, Kiri attended to Neteyam's injuries with her grandmother. She insisted that Mo'at should use a different type of bark because it stings less. She then entered the avatar facility to meet her mother's avatar and watch her video logs. Lo'ak and Spider teased Kiri about Norm being her father, to which she reacted with disgust. When Spider was reminded of his father, Kiri replied that he is not his father and does not have to be like him.
Later, Kiri joined Spider, Lo'ak and Tuk in exploring the forest near the abandoned RDA module. While alone, Kiri became lost in embracing the natural world of the forest, soon fell asleep on the forest floor, surrounded by Woodsprites. She was later roused by Miles and was embarrassed that she did 'it' again. Lo'ak alerted her and the other siblings that there were a group of six strange \"avatars\" near the module. Once Lo'ak contacted their father, mother, and Neteyam, they were ordered to retreat back to High Camp. On the way, they were ambushed by the strangers who were led by the recently resurrected Miles Quaritch.
Later, while helping her mother prepare food in their dwelling, Neytiri notices Kiri's melancholy, and asks what is wrong. Kiri though says it's nothing, but when gently prompted by Neytiri, Kiri asks Neytiri why can't she be normal. However Neytiri has no answer for this, and can only hug Kiri as Jake watches from afar. At night, while she has her feet in the water, Jake sits next to her to comfort her, listening to her claim that she can 'feel Eywa'. Their bonding is interrupted when Neteyam comes, dragging Ao'nung to tell his father that he tricked Lo'ak into hunting beyond the reef of the village.
Upon the return of the tulkun from their migration, Tuk dragged Kiri out of the marui where she was recovering. Kiri watched the herd with fascination before joining Tuk and Rotxo for a playful swim with a tulkun.
Even though her biological mother, Grace's avatar, is deceased, she still has a big influence on Kiri. Similar to Grace, she is interested in botany, giving advice to Mo'at to use yalna bark for treating wounds because it stings less. She wears her mother's necklace and medicine pouch wherever she goes, shares her fascination for the biology of the moon, enjoys visiting the Amnio Tank that Grace's avatar is stored in as well as watching video logs of the human Grace. Similar to how Grace enjoyed collecting samples, Kiri enjoys adding items such as rocks and feathers to her clothing; her anklet, for instance, is composed of pebbles from areas that Kiri has explored for the first time. This also serves as a second purpose: being able show those who are curious her discoveries, similar to when Grace was happy to explain the Tree of Voices to Parker Selfridge.
Kiri deeply wishes she could have met her biological mother, Grace, when she was still alive. She does whatever she can to feel closer to her, whether it be visiting Grace's incubated avatar, trying to get answers from Jake, or reading the documents and video recordings that Grace has left behind. Her connection with Grace is also similar to Miles' connection to his deceased mother, Paz Socorro. Interestingly, Kiri shares many of her mother's traits, such as a certain rebellious attitude and a rather pure love for all that Pandora stands for.
It's not only the palette of the film, which uses just about every shade of every color visible to the human eye; Cameron's capability to direct a film of this magnitude is no small feat. For one, \\\"Avatar: The Way of Water,\\\" which should only be watched in 3D on the largest screen available, also employed high-frame-rate shooting, and the combination of those two things not only makes every moment of the film near-tangible and crisply clear, but totally engaging to watch, even if the premise of villainous colonist versus innocent indigenous has been recycled yet again, this time on a beach.
Jake Sully opens the film with a catch-you-up narration segment detailing what happened in those years since he transferred his consciousness from his human body, confined to a wheelchair, into the athletic, tall and powerful form of his Na'vi avatar. He and his fellow soldiers had landed on Pandora, a distant moon with habitable conditions similar to Earth, with the mission of conquering it and its residents, until he fell in love with the place and went rogue, turning his guns against his commanding officers. He and Neytiri have three children, Neteyam (Jamie Flatters), Lo'ak (Britain Dalton) and Tuk (Trinity Jo-Li Bliss). They've also adopted Kiri, the daughter of his former colleague Grace (Sigourney Weaver). Also voiced and performed by Weaver, Kiri was conceived in Grace's Na'vi form under mysterious circumstances. Spider (Jack Champion) is like the Sully family's third son, biologically belonging to Quaritch but left behind because babies can't do the deep-sleep-space-travel thing.
Like Mowgli in the Indian jungle, a feral child, hair in dreadlocks, wearing only a small loin cloth and running wild with his adopted Na'vi people, Spider is one of Jake's last connections to the human world. He has otherwise completely embraced his new family's way of life. Despite his death in the last film, Quaritch is brought back to life, this time in Na'vi avatar form by swanky science and his consciousness, which had been downloaded onto a hard drive. Hellbent on revenge, he heads a special avatar team to find Jake and make him pay. 59ce067264
