Avatar: the way of the water‘s producer celebrates another major milestone for the sequel. On Twitter, Jon Landau posted a photo of the post-finishing team as the film completed its final mix. James Cameron along with his team is a known perfectionist and it makes sense that they would work right up to the bell. Landau also thanked them all for their hard work in bringing this huge project to the finish. It’s no secret that Disney expects great things from it way of water. It is the sequel to the greatest movie of all time and has cost a medium fortune to produce. So, the wait is over.
On the social media platform, Landau wrote, “Congratulations to the entire Avatar: The Way of Water family. Yesterday we completed our final mix and photo mastering and I took this shot of our postfinishing team. Thank you all for your contributions to the film.”

Some operations are more important than others
Director James Cameron recently shared a story explaining how an executive tried to persuade him to shorten the first film. As you can imagine, that moment didn’t exactly go well for the businessman. Check out how he described it below with GQ.
“I said something I’ve never said to anyone else in the company,” Cameron began. “‘I think this movie is going to make all the damn money. And when it does, it’ll be too late to love the movie. The time for you to love the movie is today. So I’m asking you don’t want to say something you don’t feel, but just know that I will always know that no matter how complimentary you are about the movie in the future when it makes all the money.'”
He continued: “And that’s exactly what I said, in all caps, ‘ALL THE MONEY’, not part of the money, all the damn money. I said, ‘You can’t come back to me and compliment the movie or come come over and say, “Look what we’ve done together.” You can’t do that.’ At that point, that particular studio manager freaked out and went over to me. And I told him to get the hell out of my office. And that’s where it stayed.”
