A new picture from the set of the Avatar sequels has emerged, showing star Sigourney Weaver after filming an underwater scene.
The long-awaited follow-ups recently resumed production in New Zealand, after being shut down earlier this year as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic.
Producer Jon Landau has now shared his latest behind-the-scenes picture from the set, this time from Hawaii as Weaver – who played Dr Grace Augustine in the first movie before her character's death – converses with director James Cameron.
"Before starting performance capture on the @Avatar sequels, we took the cast to Hawaii to experience the beauty of the underwater world," he explained on Instagram. "Here are Jim and Sig reflecting on one of our first dives."
It comes a few months after Landau shared a picture of the movie's set as filming resumed, saying at the time: "Used my iPhone to snap a picture of our first shot back in production on the Avatar sequels."
Meanwhile, earlier this year we were given a sneak peak at Weaver's return to the fold as she posed with Landau and co-star Joel David Moore.
Speaking a few years ago about Cameron making numerous sequels to the 2009 blockbuster, she said: "There's a very good reason why it turned out to be four sequels. Having read all four of them, I think they're absolutely extraordinary and worth the wait."
Weaver added: "It's the most ambitious project by far I've ever been involved in, and the most moving, the most astonishing, beautiful."
Avatar is now available to watch on services including Disney+ and Amazon Prime. Avatar 2 will be released on December 16, 2022 in US and UK cinemas, with Avatar 3, Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 expected to follow in December 2024, December 2026 and December 2028 respectively.
