The first reactions to Avatar 2 are in and if they are anything to go by, James Cameron’s still got it, even after 13 years. We just might have another box office record breaker on the way.

Avatar: The Way of Water, the highy anticipated sequel to James Cameron’s 2009 smashing hit Avatar had its world premiere in London yesterday ahead of its December 16 release and the reactions so far have been nothing short of positive.

The sequel takes movie fans back to the world of Pandora, reintroducing Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) as parents who have formed a family and are doing everything they can to stay together. When an ancient threat resurfaces however, Jake must fight a difficult war against the humans. It also stars Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet, Stephen Lang, and Edie Falco.

Following its London premiere, movie fans have been all over twitter, heaping plenty of praise on the sequel particularly for its visuals, more complex story, strong character development, and ethereal world building.

See some of the reactions for yourself;

Perri Nemiroff on Twitter: “#AvatarTheWayOfWater is pretty incredible. I had faith James Cameron would raise the bar w/ the effects but these visuals are mind-blowing. One stunning frame after the next. But the thing I dug most is how the technical feats always feel in service of character & world-building. pic.twitter.com/MXeN3z8BnP / Twitter”

Ian Sandwell on Twitter: “Unsurprisingly, #AvatarTheWayOfWater is a visual masterpiece with rich use of 3D and breathtaking vistas. It does suffer from a thin story and too many characters to juggle, yet James Cameron pulls it together for an extraordinary final act full of emotion and thrilling action. pic.twitter.com/opr6CRyOwk / Twitter”
