In US theaters on December 16! On Monday, 20th Century Studios released the first teaser trailer for James Cameron’s stunning, eight-time delayed sequel Avatar: The Way of Water

There’s a quick glimpse of the blue-skinned couple’s 14-year-old adopted human child – Javier ‘Spider’ Socorro – played by Jack Champion.

‘Ultimately, the sequels are a story about family, and the lengths parents will go through to keep that family together and keep them safe,’ producer Jon Landau told EW in December.

‘I always say that Jim’s movies have universal themes — and really, there’s no more universal theme than family.’

Much of the $250M-budget performance-capture movie and the third film are set in and around the ocean with a clan of reef-dwelling Na’vi called the Metkayina lead by Tonowari (Cliff Curtis).
