As the countdown to Avatar: The Way of Water’s release draws nearer, fans have been raising a ton of questions. One of the bigger mysteries was centered around Sigourney Weaver’s return to the franchise. The actress played a large role in the first movie, Dr. Grace Augustine, but the character died during the climax. So what’s going to happen in Way of Water? Flashbacks? Clones? Earlier today, Empire Magazine gave us the truth. The actress is returning, but not reprising her previous role. Instead, Weaver will be playing the part of a member of Jake and Neytiri’s family!
