Filming on Avatar 2: The Way of Water first began in 2013 and has been dragging on due to the director’s drive for technical perfection. Cameron had new cameras and systems built to complex CGI underwater scenes and motion capture performances to realize, which blew up the costs. The director didn’t even want to reveal the exact budget.

In addition, Cameron had many scenes repeated incredibly often:

One day in Wellington, New Zealand, where Cameron was finishing the film, he showed me a single effects shot numbered 405. ‘That means it 405 versions of it gave before I was satisfied.’
