'Avatar’s' Sigourney Weaver Reveals Why James Cameron Cast Her As A 14-Year-Old In 'The Way Of Water'

After over a decade, "Avatar: The Way of Water" is finally hitting theaters at the end of this year. The primary cast that includes Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldaña are all returning to Pandora to continue the story that became a global phenomenon. To much of the surprise of fans, Sigourney Weaver is also returning for the sequel, despite her character dying in the first film. But James Cameron clearly had a different vision for Weaver’s future within the franchise. The acclaimed director cast Weaver as the 14-year-old daughter of Worthington’s Jake Scully and Saldaña’s Neytiri. This seemed like an odd choice, considering Weaver is 73, but as per usual, there is a method to Cameron’s madness. In an interview with the New York Times, the cast of "Avatar 2" sat down to talk about the much anticipated sequel film, and how the follow up films will seek to reach the heights that the original did. When Weaver was asked about her new role in the sequel films, she revealed that she feels that the casting may not be as strange as people think.
