The Weeknd teases new music for the “Avatar” sequel

In a recent cryptic social media post, The Weeknd hinted at some new music for the forthcoming Avatar movie.

His Twitter account posted a strange 12-second teaser video that featured a blue “A” with a bird in the centre and was scored by an original, never-before-heard song.

The Weeknd captioned the post with “12.16.22” – the same date that also appears in the later moments of the clip.

Soon after sharing, the musician reportedly retweeted a post from the new Avatar movie account, which read “#AvatarTheWayOfWater x @theWeeknd”, seemingly confirming his involvement with the upcoming film.

Guillermo del Toro recently delivered the first review of Avatar: The Way of Water, calling the imminent sequel “a staggering achievement”.

The Way of Water comes just over 13 years since the original Avatar, which first hit screens on December 10, 2009. The sequel is due out on December 16 and like the first film – as well as the series’ next three films in active development – was written, directed and produced by James Cameron.
