The Quick Explanation
Avatar: The Way of Water has a number of themes. The most obvious being family. Not just the importance of family but also the stresses. The way in which family can be a source of power but also cause fear and pain. It also looks at adopted family and what it means to be an outsider and how your tribe can transcend blood and species. We see this with the Sullys adopting Kiri and Spider. How the Metkayina adopt the Sullys. And the connection between Na’vi and tulkuns. Less obvious themes involve coming of age, the passing of the torch, and ultimately the cost of hoping a problem goes away rather than tackling it head on. It also feels like James Cameron wants people to understand how amazing whales are. Maybe he hopes the tulkuns will inspire people to care more deeply about the plight of whales and the ocean itself.
