James Cameron Hypes Up the Remastered Theatrical Release of the Original Avatar
Published 1 year ago
Ever since Avengers: Endgame became the highest-grossing film of all time, it feels like James Cameron has been finding ways to keep bringing Avatar back to the big screen. The movie has actually been remastered for 4K, and we have a new promo of Cameron hyping up the re-release to get everyone excited for a return to Pandora this December.

“When we made Avatar, we set out to push the limits of that experience, and now the movie has been remastered in stunning 4K, high dynamic range, and 9.1 sound, and it’s returning to theaters September 23rd for a limited time. See Avatar the way it was meant to be seen—on the big screen.”
With the original film coming out back in 2009, there have certainly been a lot of technological advancements when it comes to the cinematic experience that it’s a no-brainer that Cameron would want to have those added to one of his passion projects. Heck, DVDs were still a thing when that movie came out.
Not to mention, there has been very little hype for the Avatar universe counting that the movie came out more than a decade ago. For now, 20th Century Studios is just trying its best to remind everyone how huge the original film was, so it could get people to check out the sequel that’s coming out later this year.
Jake Sully and Ney’tiri have formed a family and are doing everything to stay together. However, they must leave their home and explore the regions of Pandora. When an ancient threat resurfaces, Jake must fight a difficult war against the humans.
James Cameron’s Avatar returns to theaters on Sept. 23. Catch the sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water when it releases in cinemas on Dec. 16.
