In case some of you weren't aware, Avatar sequels are in the works!
The team behind the highly anticipated science-fiction film shared new behind-the-scenes set photos and by the looks of it, some parts of the film will take place underwater. One of the BTS photos sees James Cameron directing his actors and crew who are submerged in a giant pool.

The first sequel to the 2009 epic (which was at one point the highest-grossing film of all time) will see Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana reprise their roles as Jake Sully and Neytiri respectively. Avatar 2 also adds an all-star ensemble featuring Kate Winslet, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement, David Thewlis, Michelle Yeoh, and Vin Diesel.
