'Avatar: The Way of Water' Is Reportedly Longer Than 3 Hours

“it’s okay to get up and go pee,” says James Cameron.

The much-anticipated Avatar sequel, titled Avatar: The Way of Water, will reportedly have a runtime of over three hours.

According to sources via The Hollywood Reporter, the film clocks in at three hours and 10 minutes. Director James Cameron commented on the long runtime in a conversation with Empire Magazine: “I don’t want anybody whining about length when they sit and binge-watch [television] for eight hours. I can almost write this part of the review. ‘The agonizingly long three-hour movie…’ It’s like, give me a f-cking break. I’ve watched my kids sit and do five one-hour episodes in a row.’” He added, “Here’s the big social paradigm shift that has to happen: it’s okay to get up and go pee.”

The movie marks the first sequel to the original Avatar movie, which premiered back in 2009 and still holds the title as the top-grossing movie of all time. The film was around 30 minutes shorter than the upcoming edition, clocking in at two hours and 41 minutes.

Avatar 2 stars Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement, Giovanni Ribisi and Kate Winslet. The movie’s synopsis reads, “Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), 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.”

Avatar: The Way of Water is set to hit theaters on December 16.
