“Avatar: The Way of Water” or Avatar 2 continues to run successfully several months after its theatrical release. Soon you will be able to watch the science fiction epic at home in the stream, but the film will not be available on Disney+ for the time being.
- “Avatar 2” will be streaming in your living room in just a few weeks!
- Toilet breaks are now no longer a problem with the 3-hour epic.
- Contrary to expectations, however, “The Way of Water” will not land directly on Disney+ and could now be delayed even further on the streaming service.
With most movies these days, it’s easy to predict when they will be available to stream digitally. However, that’s not the case for “Avatar: The Way of Water.” The science fiction sequel has been running so successfully in international cinemas since December 2022 that Disney could well take its time with a home theater release – and did.
While other titles, especially with disappointing box office results, can already be streamed at home after barely 2 months, a digital launch in April 2023 seemed likely for “Avatar 2”. Now Disney surprises with the news that “Avatar: The Way of Water” will already be released digitally on March 28, 2023.
Disney is pursuing a different release strategy than with the films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There, the films first appear on Disney+ after the theatrical release, and only later can the titles be rented or purchased from other providers. In the case of “Avatar 2,” everything starts with the digital release, so you’ll be able to buy the film as a stream from Amazon, iTunes, Maxdome and other providers.
In addition, you will receive numerous extras, which will certainly be available one day on Disney+ and on DVD and Blu-Ray. However, it is not yet clear when Disney+ subscribers and Blu-ray collectors will be able to enjoy “Avatar: The Way of Water”. Here, the waiting period could now extend to May 2023 in order to still earn money long enough with the digital purchases.
It should also be noted that the March 28, 2023 launch date has only been confirmed for the US so far. However, we assume that this date will be valid internationally; after all, “Avatar 2” also hit theaters here two days before its US release.
