Avatar: The Way of Water, James Cameron’s much-anticipated sequel to the 2009 sci-fi blockbuster Avatar, hit theaters Dec. 16 and has already surpassed $1 billion at the global box office. No surprise that the $350 million production, set on the extrasolar moon Pandora and filled with breathtaking aquatic visuals, has prompted an array of collaborative merch rollouts.
The collections span from backpacks, watches, sneakers, jewelry and apparel to cosmetics, books and toys. Here are some of our favorite products from the latest Avatar: The Way of Water merch lines, from NYX Professional Makeup, Sprayground, Cariuma, McFarlane Toys, Lego, Hot Topic, Citizen Watch, DK Publishing and Disney.
