Die-hard Titanic fans are going crazy as the news of actress Kate Winslet joining director James Cameron’s Avatar franchise is making rounds on the internet.
Winslet will be playing a character named “Ronal” and it’s unclear yet how many of the four planned sequels she will appear in or whether she’ll even be human or Na’vi. But at least we can all be sure Cameron knows how to shoot the Oscar winner in blue.
A spokesperson for 20th Century Fox confirmed the news Tuesday. It was first reported by the online trade publication Deadline.
Cameron said that they had been looking to work together again for 20 years, “Kate and I have been looking for something to do together for 20 years since our collaboration on Titanic, which was one of the most rewarding of my career.”
Four Avatar sequels are planned to be released in December of 2020, 2021, 2024 and 2025.
Winslet will be seen next in the survival drama The Mountain Between Us, in theatres on Friday.
Like always, Twitter is reacting to the news of this collaboration and the reactions are hilarious! Have a look!

I've also joined Avatar 2 as person Kate Winslet leaves behind while escaping death though there's room for one more on the getaway vehicle.— Julia ???? Alexander (@loudmouthjulia) October 3, 2017
