Avatar: The Way of Water is sequel to 2009 hit Avatar which wowed audiences with pioneering 3D technology. It marks the return of actors Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana as Jake Sully and Neytiri 10 years later as parents of five children. Their peaceful life is interrupted when the Sky People, the Na'vi name for humans, return to go after Jake. The film also stars Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver from the original star cast while Kate Winslet is a new addition.

The original film remains the all-time box office hit with $2.9 billion in global ticket sales. The sequel Avatar: The Way of Water was delayed multiple times as James Cameron and co-writers crafted a story to be told over four additional movies. A third Avatar installment and part of a fourth film have already been filmed.

Film critics praised the visual spectacle of The Way of Water, and 94 percent of ticket buyers provided a positive rating on the Rotten Tomatoes website. Tony Chambers, head of theatrical distribution at Disney, said he expected The Way of Water to bring in strong sales over the holiday period and said its performance should be judged after the New Year. "We know it's resonating," he said, noting positive reactions from ticket buyers and film critics. "We are in very good shape," he added.
