Guillermo del Toro gives Avatar: The Way of Water its first review.
The sequel, James Cameron’s first since Avatar 13 years ago, will debut in two weeks.
Cameron has been busy creating new technology for the film’s longer underwater segments, making it one of the three most expensive films ever.
Disney, which acquired Fox in 2019, hopes The Way of Water to be good.
It’s a marvel, according to Pan’s Labyrinth and The Shape of Water director del Toro.
After seeing the picture last month, del Toro hailed it “a breathtaking achievement.”
“It is chockfull with beautiful Vistas and feelings at an epic, epic scale,” he tweeted, calling Cameron “a master at the pinnacle of his powers.”
It will cover “the peril that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the struggles they fight to stay alive and the tragedies they endure” in the Sully family.
