What is Avatar: The Way of Water about? 

Based on Cameron’s statement, the Avatar saga is connected to the world of The Abyss.

James Cameron Reveals “Avatar” Characters and Storyline “The Abyss” inspired him to create the movie Avatar. Cameron made a statement that “What I think was originally an embarrassment of riches ended up becoming a bit of a challenge once I got into it and started actually putting pen to paper and realized how much story-telling was required just for that one film alone. But once I realized how rich that story was going to be—how much potential it had not only for a film, but for the rest of the saga I want to make—it became very clear that there was more than enough story material for several films, and that I’d have to move beyond the rate at which we were doing other films to finish out this effort at doing all three. 

So, what is the significance of the name Avatar? Cameron’s statement discussed the avatar vs spirit world. Cameron said that “Bothandare about communicating with our spirit friends and the spark of life within us.” Cameron also mentioned that his inspiration to make this movie was actually why he liked “The Abyss”. But he was not really able to reveal many details in this regard.
