Disney has announced that it will be releasing the “Avatar: The Deep Dive – A Special Edition of 20/20” on Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand on Friday, 13th January 2023.
This new primetime special edition of “20/20” features exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the powerhouse film franchise through the eyes of legendary director James Cameron. In a revealing interview with ABC News contributor Chris Connelly, Cameron recounted the world’s reaction to the first-of-its-kind film “Avatar” more than a decade ago, his challenges making the highly anticipated sequel, “Avatar: Way of the Water,” and his plans for three additional instalments.
The one-hour special also includes interviews with stars Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet, Sam Worthington and Stephen Lang, who describe their experiences working with Cameron and the signature motion-capture technology. Weaver, who is returning as a new adolescent character, explains how it felt to play one of the youngest characters in the sequel and how she tapped into her own childhood for the role. Academy Award® winner Kate Winslet talks about her long-awaited reunion with the director and why she was eager to join the project, playing one of the leaders of an undersea Pandora clan. In rare behind-the-scenes footage, the cast is seen undergoing months of intensive free-diving training with renowned free-diving expert Kirk Krack to give full underwater performances.
The program also introduces the next generation of actors joining the “Avatar” world, including Jamie Flatters, Bailey Bass, Jack Champion and Trinity Bliss, who open up about joining the legendary franchise. Additional interviews include producer Jon Landau, casting director Margery Simkin and more.
