When Avatar made its theatrical debut eleven years in the past, it acquired overwhelming reward for its groundbreaking achievements in visible results and CGI know-how. Even at present, the sci-fi epic stays to be a benchmark for technological excellence in movie and tv productions. Maybe that’s the reason why The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau – certainly one of at present’s most sought-after administrators and a proponent of latest movie applied sciences himself – visited director James Cameron on the set of Avatar 2 in Los Angeles.
