Avatars 3 will introduce a fire Na’Vi people that differ from the Omaticaya and come on Metkayina in a fundamental way. Avatar: The Way of Water builds on the foundation of Avatar, showing a new side of the moon Pandora. Due to Quaritch’s (Stephen Lang) pursuit of Jake (Sam Worthington), Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña) and their family, the Sullies were forced to leave the forest behind and start a new life far from their home . Eventually they settled on the islands populated by the Metkayina clan, where they had to learn to assimilate a new culture and way of life.

While Avatar introduced the forest-dwelling Omaticaya, Avatar: The Water Way brought into the fold the Metkayina, a clan that evolved differently from the Omaticaya to adapt to the oceanic environment, sporting green skin, tails thicker, finned arms and some other distinctions. In a conversation with 20 Minutes, Cameron alluded to the introduction of a new Na’vi clan in Avatar 3 and beyond, explaining that the element of fire “will be represented by the ‘People of Ashes'”, the which hints that Jake and Neytiri could interact with a new group of Na’vi in ​​the upcoming film. Additionally, Cameron offers an intriguing detail about the franchise’s next installment, hinting that the Na’vi in ​​Avatar 3 won’t be portrayed as positively as in the previous films. Here’s what the director had to say below:

“[Nel prossimo film, gli spettatori possono aspettarsi di vedere] different cultures than those I have already shown. The fire will be represented by the “people of the ashes”. I want to show the Na’vi from another point of view because so far I have only shown their good sides. In the early films, there are very negative human examples and very positive Na’vi examples. In Avatar 3 we will do the opposite. We will also explore new worlds, while continuing the story of the main characters. I can say that the last parts will be the best. The others were an introduction, a way to set the table before serving the meal. But, of course, it all depends on how Avatar 2 is received, whether it finds its audience.”

How will the Na’vi be different in Avatar 3?

Based on Cameron’s comments, the “People of the Ashes” may be the most aggressive Na’vi clan yet, defying viewers’ expectations and complicating their perception of the native people of Pandora. Although Avatar presented a layered look at the Omaticaya, showing that Neytiri, her parents, and the rest of their clan had differing views on humans and other matters, the native population as a whole was portrayed as essentially good in terms of morals. , while humans took on a more antagonistic role. The same is true in Avatar: The Water Run: the humans are the evil force of the film, while the Metkayinas, while somewhat divided in their approach to the Sullies, are easy to root for.

Cameron’s statement indicates that, in Avatar 3, the Na’vi will no longer be aligned with righteousness, although Jake’s family continues to take center stage. The “people of the ash” could fill this role, making human scientists or perhaps Quaritch’s son, Spider (Jack Champion), possible targets of the new clan and forcing Jake and his family to defend them, painting the Na’vi of the fire like the antagonists of the film. In terms of physical and cultural differences, the “ash people” might have red or gray, heat-resistant skin and shorter hair, as well as inhabiting the volcanic regions of Pandora.

Did Avatar 2 “find its audience”?

The box office figures for Avatar: The Water Run are staggering: the film has already raised over $1.3 billion in less than a month. This strong departure indicates that the film has made an impact on viewers, which means that the future is bright for the upcoming installments, especially as Cameron has hinted that the upcoming films will twist the formula of the franchise by introducing more complex thematic elements, new settings and new characters. Avatar: The Water Run has earned a lot of praise from moviegoers, who have taken to social media to show their appreciation for the film, a potential sign of strong interest in Avatar 3.
