With the help of a recorded message from director James Cameron, 20th Century Films also revealed the teaser for the sequel to the highest-grossing movie of all time, Avatar. The film’s official title was revealed to be Avatar: The Way of Water.

In a press release, Disney teases that the movie, “begins to tell the story of returning heroes Jake and Neytiri and their children, the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure.”
