The Weeknd Teases New Music for 'Avatar: The Way of Water'
Film producer Jon Landau also welcomed the artist to the ‘Avatar’ family.
The Weeknd is cooking up something new for Avatar: The Way of Water.
The XO Records founder took to social media to tease his involvement in the James Cameron sequel, sharing a short visual with the movie’s logo and a December 16 release date. The film’s Twitter account confirmed the legitimacy of The Weeknd’s posts by sharing it on their account as well, while The Way of Water producer Jon Landau uploaded a photo of him with the artist and the caption, “As the Na’vi say, ‘Zola’u nìprrte’ soaiane Avatar’… Welcome to the Avatar family.”
The Way of Water is the direct sequel to the 2009 epic and will see the return of Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldaña as Jake Sully, the human who left his body to become a Na’vi, and Neytiri, the Na’vi princess. Set over a decade after the first film, audiences will see Jake and their family of five children explore Pandora as they face an ancient threat that has returned, leading Jake into a war with the humans.
