New Zealand has granted filmmaker James Cameron and his 30 person crew an exemption from their travel ban.
Cameron and his crew are allowed to return to the country to begin shooting the sequel of Avatar.
They were granted the exemption as the movie will guarantee work for about 400 people in the country.
New Zealand has granted an exemption to 56 foreign film crews, allowing them to begin production in the country.
This decision isn’t surprising as the film industry in New Zealand is worth NZ$3 billion.
All 56 film crews will be required to do 2 weeks quarantine before they can begin work.
James Cameron chartered a plane from LA for him and his crew and will be paying for their quarantine hotel rooms.
The Avatar sequel is being filmed in Wellington and produced in partnership with Weta Digital.
The movie will invest about NZ$70 million into the economy in the last few months of 2020 alone.
It’s a signal to other films that they can return to work here safely, and to other businesses that might not have thought of coming to New Zealand before , Jon Landau, Avatar Producer
