There are many fans who, after reviewing the film several times, have noticed that James Cameron has recycled numerous motion capture scenes for Avatar: The Run of Water, a sequel that arrived in theaters last year.
Over time, and one viewing of the film repeated over and over again, the fans of Avatar: The Way of Water they noticed that the director James Cameron ha recycled a surprising number of scenes from the first film for its sequel thus finding the way to savings.
In fact, according to what reported by ComicBookMovie, some scenes of Avatar have been painted and reused for its sequel, Avatar: The street of the water. While the most important details have undergone changes, such as the face of Jake Sully, there does not appear to be any difference between the shots of the character.
All of this has happened more than once, and motion capture has also been recycled for Neytiri, the character played by Zoe Saldaña.
Difficult, if not impossible, to understand why the director has not shot new material. However, it is probable that the existing one was sufficient at the time of filming. Furthermore, James Cameron may have saved time especially in a difficult moment such as the one related to the Covid-19 pandemic which has created many difficulties.
