WASHINGTON: The ‘Avatar’ family is getting bigger and a whole lot younger. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, James Cameron's ‘Avatar 2’ will introduce seven young cast members, who will take a trip to Pandora.

The new characters 20th Century Fox unveiled yesterday include three children from the Sully family (the offspring of Zoe Saldana's Neytiri and Sam Worthington's Jake). 

Jamie Flatters plays Neteyam, the eldest child, while Britain Dalton plays second-born Lo'ak and Trinity Bliss rounds out the family as the youngest, Tuktirey.

There are also three young members of the Metkayina clan of reef people, with Bailey Bass playing a skilled free diver named Tsireya. 

Filip Geljo is playing Aonung, a hunter/free diver and son of his people's Olo'eyktan, while Duane Evans Jr. plays Rotxo, another free diver and hunter.

Meanwhile, Jack Champion is playing a human teenager named Javier "Spider" Socorro, who was born at the Hell's Gate facility on Pandora but he has more interest in the nature of the planet than spending time at the human facility.

Producer Jon Landua shared that the young cast would be a big part of the films going forward. 
Landua said, “They represent the future generation of Pandora and play a very significant role — not just in this movie but throughout all the movies.” 

Cameron is currently filming Avatar 2 and 3 concurrently, with plans for 4 and 5 to be simultaneously shot soon after.
