To say James Cameron’s plans for the Avatar universe are ambitious is an understatement. From 2017 to 2020, he shot Avatar: The Way of Water, Avatar 3 and a third of Avatar 4 all at the same time. He also did this knowing that Avatar 4 might not even come out but to be honest, that seems to be very unlikely. After seeing Avatar: The Way of Water, we’re very excited to see more of Pandora, and especially more from the new cast. We spoke to Avatar newcomer Jack Champion at the Avatar: The Way of Water Canadian premiere and when we asked him about what he’s excited for the audience to see in the future, here’s what he had to say.

I’m excited for [the audience] to see [The Way of Water] and Avatar 3 is gonna take a hard left turn. You’re gonna see and explore even more regions of Pandora and I’m very excited for audiences to see that.

In the Avatar films, Champion plays Spider, a human boy abandoned on Pandora after the events of Avatar. He was adopted into the Sully family by Jake. Spider struggles with his heritage as he feels more Na’vi than human. At the end of The Way of Water, we saw him save his father, Colonel Miles Quaritch from death before disowning him. He then reunites with the Sully family to mourn the loss of Jake and Neytiri’s oldest child and one of Spider’s best friends, Neteyam.
