Landau recently shared a photo of motion capture work being done for the sequels. He didn’t specify which instalment he was working on, but Landau is listed as a producer alongside Cameron on Avatar 2.
“On the Avatar sequels, we use performance capture for things that are both big and small!” Landau wrote next to two images.
One shows three horses and riders covered in motion-capture dots, and the other features a young child also wearing a motion-capture outfit.
In March this year, Avatar regained its spot as the highest-grossing film of all time, after being overtaken by Avengers: Endgame in 2019.
Avatar’s re-release in China enabled it to climb back to the top. The film currently has a lifetime gross of $2.8.4bn according to Box Office Mojo, compared to $2.79bn for Avengers: Endgame.
