Sigourney Weaver’s journey as a teenager in Avatar 2 is a strange one

If you somehow remember what happened in 2009’s Avatar, you might be wondering exactly how Sigourney Weaver is returning to the franchise. After all, her character died a lot after the events of that first movie. However, somehow, she plays an important role in Avatar: The Road of Water. How is that possible? Easy, she plays her own child – something like that.

In Water Road, Weaver plays Kiri, the adopted daughter of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), now the parents of a group of children. Interestingly, the 73-year-old Weaver’s character is a teenager in the new movie. An odd twist for sure, but one that the actress was very determined to figure out.

In fact, she was so committed that she went back to school – in earnest. Speaking during the press conference for Avatar: The Way of Water, Weaver explained that “Fortunately, I had a long time to prepare, and I took high school classes and a few other things, so I can hear the pitch of [teenagers’] voice, and there are a lot of teenagers between the ages of twelve and fifteen. And when I saw that, I thought, okay, I can let Kiri out. Whoever it is, combined with the person I was at fourteen.”

So Kiri is basically a mix of modern-day teenagers and growing up Weaver himself. “I was this tall when I was eleven years old,” the actress admitted. “So it’s given me a lot to work on, and when I get there, I’d love to leave this shell behind and be this little brat sometimes.”

At the core of how all of this works in plot, director James Cameron is trying to simplify things. “Well, Grace’s avatar is still alive,” he said. “It doesn’t have a mind of its own because it needs Grace’s consciousness to be able to move and talk, etc. But [she] turned out to be pregnant, a vessel for this baby.”

So Grace (Weaver) is dead, but the Na’vi body she inhabits is not – and it’s still pregnant. Now, Jake and Neytiri are raising the child as their own, and it’s still unclear who the child has a father or who it is.

On what to expect from Kiri, Cameron explained, “There’s something unknown about her, something mysterious about her, and I think Sig has walked the beautiful path of classic awkwardness. of adolescence, however when she got her powers, when she entered her powers, she was not a warrior.”

Expanding a bit on the character, Weaver said: “The first time we talked about it was in 2010, and we just had this idea. [of] a girl feels more comfortable in the woods with creatures, flora and fauna.”

There’s a lot of jungle on the planet Pandora, but here’s hoping Kiri feels comfortable in the water as well if the movie’s trailers, clips, and title have anything to say about it.

Avatar: The Way of Water hits theaters on Friday.
