Apparently, the makers of the Hollywood film are also happy about the prominent musician. Producer Jon Landau shared a photo with the artist on Twitter. “As the Na’vi say, ‘Zola’u nìprrte’ soaiane Avatar’… Welcome to the Avatar family,” Landau captioned the picture. How extensive the cooperation actually is remains unclear at first.

In 2009, James Cameron created one of the most successful films of all time with “Avatar” – which was largely due to the visuals: The long-awaited sequel “The Way of Water” begins ten years after the events of “Avatar: Departure from Pandora”. . The story revolves around the Na’vi couple Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), who have since started a family with several children. But the family idyll is also threatened by external dangers in the second part of the sci-fi series.
