Avatar 3: Jake Sully Out as Narrator, Replaced by Son Lo’ak


James Cameron is officially done with having Avatar protagonist Jake Sully narrate his films, saying his son Lo’ak will instead take on the role going forward.

As reported by AV Club, Cameron said on the Soundtracking with Edith Bowman podcast that he wanted to put Lo’ak’ more front and centre due to the positive fan response in Avatar: The Way of the Water.

“I’m going to take a moment when the dust clears to assess what people loved and what they responded to the most in this current release, and then I may go back and tinker a little bit,” Cameron said “We may go back and do a couple of moments here and there. It won’t be radical, but maybe fine-tune it a bit to emphasize that which people are responding to.

“Lo’ak really emerged as a character that people went with,” he continued. “I might find ways to… he’s already the narrator. I’m giving away something here, but this is okay. I think it could be intriguing for people to think about what’s coming.”

Cameron somewhat roped himself into making another three Avatar films as the long-awaited sequel has dominated the box office since its premiere on December 16.

“I’m gonna have to do these other sequels,” Cameron said earlier in January. “I know what I’m going to be doing the next six or seven years. The point is we’re going to be okay.”

In our 8/10 review of the sequel, IGN said: “Avatar: The Way of Water is a clear improvement on its predecessor and, though its story isn’t breaking new ground, its jaw-dropping visuals make this an irresistible return to Pandora.”
