Director James Cameron
and producer Jon Landau
arrived in Wellington, New Zealand on Sunday morning local time in preparation for the resumption of filming of the “Avatar
” film series.
Some 54 passengers were on board a chartered Air New Zealand
plane, departing Friday night from Lax, and flying for nearly 13 hours direct from Los Angeles to Wellington.
But filming may not restart immediately. The inbound travelers will be subject to a 14-day quarantine period.
In an Instagram posting on May 22, Landau announced that the staff evacuated from New Zealand would be heading back to the country next week. He used the same medium on Sunday to announce their arrival.
“Made it to New Zealand. Our 14-day government supervised self-isolation now begins,” Landau said.
