We finally know when box office phenomenon Avatar 2: The Way of Water will come out on Disney Plus. But that’s not the only place you can watch it.
Avatar: The Way of Water is officially one of the biggest movies of all time. Many knew it would be going into it after the success of Avatar in 2009, but with just how much the cinematic landscape has changed since then, there was always the concern that it might fall short of expectations.
Somehow, the James Cameron epic exceeded expectations (and then some!) at the box office, having already made itself at home in the Top 3 highest-grossing movies of all time, ensuring the release of Avatar 3 and production of the future sequels.
But before we get ahead of ourselves talking about sequels, it’s important to remember that many people haven’t seen Avatar 2 and will likely be waiting for it to premiere on Disney Plus. With that in mind, when can they expect it to do just that?
We finally have answers!
Avatar 2 Disney Plus release date
Avatar: The Way of Water comes out on Disney Plus on Wednesday, June 7, 2023. It will premiere on the streamer at 12:00 a.m. PT, 3:00 a.m. ET, and 2:00 a.m. CT.
That’s not the only place you can watch Avatar 2, however, as it will simultaneously premiere on HBO Max on the very same day – a shocker for audiences who were anticipating its arrival on streaming services.
As Avatar 2 has enjoyed a lot of success at the box office, there has been a very lengthy wait for its Disney Plus arrival. The film’s box office performance was so crucial to the success of the franchise, because it had a lot of money to make back in order to ensure future sequels go ahead. It obviously did all that in just a few weeks, but as it was still performing well at the cinema months after its debut, Disney clearly wanted to make the most of that.
It was, however, released to digital on-demand services on March 28, which was something of a first post-pandemic as Disney’s movies tend to premiere on Disney Plus before their digital and home media releases. But this was just another example of how successful Avatar: The Way of Water has been.
