What to know
Avatar: The Tulkun Rider is an upcoming science-fiction film co-written and directed by James Cameron. It is the fourth installment of the Avatar franchise and will be released in 2026, 17 years after the original Avatar was released. The film’s title draws inspiration from the tulkun, a massive whale-like creature that is native to the oceans of Pandora. Tulkun are extraordinary creatures that can communicate with the Na’vi and considered siblings by the Metkayina clan.
James Cameron is one of the world’s most famous filmmakers who’s previously directed hugely successful films such as Aliens, The Terminator, and Titanic. Avatar was a concept Cameron had worked on since his teenage years, beginning with a pen drawing he made entitled “Spring on Planet Flora.” The director’s passion and perseverance paid off as the first Avatar film would go on to become the highest grossing movie of all time.
Starring in Avatar: The Tulkun Rider are Sam Worthington as Jake Sully, Zoe Saldana as Neytiri, and Sigourney Weaver as Dr. Grace Augustine. Stephen Lang, Michelle Yeoh, Joel David Moore, Cliff Curtis, and Giovanni Ribisi are also part of the star-studded cast.
