Priyanka Chopra’s character in the upcoming Matrix Resurrections movie has been confirmed to be Sati (according to newly released images of the movie by Warner Bros), an older exile program in the Matrix that was created without a purpose, believed by The Oracle to impact both humans and machines.
Priyanka Chopra’s character is Sati
With only less than 2 weeks before the release of Matrix Resurrections on December 22, Warner Bros. has released new images from the upcoming movie, which confirms her portrayal of an older version of Sati, an older exile program within the Matrix; and taking over from actress Tanveer K. Atwal who portrayed a younger version of the character in Matrix Revolutions and Matrix Online.
Speculation about Priyanka Chopra‘s character has been rife ever since the first trailer for the movie was dropped – she was seen offering a still-brainwashed Anderson (portrayed by Keanu Reeves) a copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, with many theorizing that she plays the role of Sati, who presumably gets involved in his awakening. The newly released images from Warner Bros. have now confirmed their theories and also provide a nice little teaser about her role in the movie.
Priyanka Chopra taking over from Tanveer K. Atwal is not the only recasting done for the upcoming movie, with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II taking over from Lawrence Fishburne as Matrix rebel leader Morpheus.
The upcoming Matrix Resurrections movie is set 20 years after the events of Matrix Revolutions, with Neo back inside the Matrix as Thomas A. Anderson. He meets Trinity, with the two not recognizing each other, but the meeting awakens something in him. Neo then gets reunited with Morpheus, who gives him a red pill and Neo sees the truth (again), as well as his past as the Chosen One. Neo then joins forces with Morpheus to fight against the machines (again).
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Morpheus, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris and Christina Ricci. The cast of The Matrix Resurrections is being led by legacy stars Keanu Reeves as Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity alongside Lambert Wilson as The Merovingian, Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe and Daniel Bernhardt as Agent Johnson.
The Matrix Resurrections opens in all theaters on December 22.
