Disney And Avatar Team Up To Keep Our Oceans Amazing


Avatar: The Way of Water will finally hit theaters on December 16th. Disney is celebrating by launching the “Keep our Oceans Amazing” campaign.

Audiences were first introduced to the world of Pandora in the original Avatar and fell in love with the characters, the beautiful rainforests and creatures. "Keep Our Oceans Amazing" will support The Nature Conservancy and invite Avatar fans to experience the Pandoran Virtual Ocean now through December 31, 2022.

As we journey into Avatar: The Way of Water, audiences will be transported to an all-new biome—the reef—and will be introduced to a new oceanic clan and an array of diverse aquatic creatures. The experience will transport fans to the wonders of the reef.  With this unique digital activation, fans can help Disney and Avatar Keep Our Oceans Amazing at Once there, fans can create their own Avatar inspired ocean creature.  For every creature created Disney will donate $5 to The Nature Conservancy, up to $1 million. This will help the Conservancy reach their global goal of protecting 10 percent of the ocean by 2030.

This expanding universe underlines how Pandora has been designed as a metaphor for Earth. Audiences will experience the beauty of the sea and the richness of biodiversity in Pandora’s oceans.

“The Avatar ethos is that we are all connected to each other and our planet, and therefore are responsible for positively impacting the people and world around us,” said
 Avatar: The Way of Waterproducer Jon Landau. “The ‘Keep Our Oceans Amazing’ campaign is a way for us to invite fans from around the world to join us in creating that impact.”

About Avatar: The Way of Water:

Avatar was the highest-grossing film of all time. Avatar: The Way of Water is set more than a decade after the events of the first film and tells the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids). It chronicles the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure. The film will feature awe-inspiring scenes that showcase the vibrant bioluminescence and beauty of Pandora’s aquatic landscape— scenes that will inspire us all to consider the wonders of our own oceanic world.
