3. Avatar: The Way of Water (2022)
“Avatar: The Way of the Water,” the next Avatar film, has some surprising facts. The story revolves around Jake Sully, who has moved to Pandora with his new family. When a familiar enemy reappears, Jake joins forces with Neytiri and the Na’vi army to defend their planet.
This is the first of four sequels, each with its own tale but all part of a larger saga. When the RDA mining operation returns to Pandora, Jake takes his family to a rumored safe haven on the reef, where they encounter the Metkayina. What makes Avatar 2 stand out is that certain sequences were shot underwater.
4. Turning Red (2022)
“Turning Red” by Disney and Pixar features Mei Lee, a confident, geeky 13-year-old torn between remaining her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of puberty. Ming, her devoted, if rather pushy, mother, is never far from her daughter—an awful reality for the adolescent. And, as if the changes in her interests, relationships, and body weren’t enough if she gets very excited (which is almost often), she “poofs” into a big red panda!
5. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022)
In the aftermath of King T’Challa’s death, Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku, Okoye, and the Dora Milaje strive to safeguard their country from interfering international forces.
