How to Watch Avatar: The Way of Water – Release Date and Streaming Status

Published on

It may be difficult to believe for many fans, but it has been 13 long years since James Cameron’s “Avatar” premiered in theaters in December 2009. The film was Cameron’s first since “Titanic” 12 years previously, and it would go on to bump the historical disaster epic from the all-time international box office top spot. What made the movie so special was not only its pioneering usage of motion-capture performance technology but also Cameron’s visual effects that he created along with Weta Digital in Wellington, New Zealand, which was co-founded by another visionary filmmaker, Peter Jackson in 1993.

By the time the movie ended, the important themes of environmentalism, conservation, the decimation of the natural world, the fear of the other, and much, much more had all played out against the luminous backdrop. Simply put: “Avatar” was a must-see cinematic experience just like practically all of the director’s feature films since 1984’s “The Terminator.” With “Avatar: The Way of Water” releasing on December 16, 2022, the first installment is finally coming to network TV.

No wonder big streaming sites are planning to feature Avatar: The Way of Water on their sites. However, at least a month or a period of 45 days will be required to stream this on HBO Max. Similarly, Hulu and Disney+ also plan to feature this Avatar film after the theatrical screening ends. But unluckily, you can not stream this film on the giant streaming site- Netflix.

Is Avatar: The Way of Water Available on Netflix?

No! Avatar: The Way of Water, distributed by 20th Century Studios is owned by Disney. As this film will get exclusively streamed on Disney+ and Hulu, you might not soon find this James Cameron directorial available on Netflix.

However, this streaming giant has a tremendous catalog of films and TV series. You can watch them out, including Sci-Fi films such as The 5th Wave (2014), Spiderhead (2022), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2016), Vanilla Sky (2001), and a lot more!

Is Avatar: The Way of Water Available on HBO Max?

Avatar: The Way Of Water will be available in the US on HBO Max. Meanwhile, a temporary deal with Warner Media is active, which suggests users keep an eye on HBO Max once the film hits the theaters.

But expecting Avatar: The Way of Water on HBO Max just after the theatrical release might not be happening. For example, ‘The Batman’ was also dropped on this platform after 45 days of its theatrical release. So, at least you need to wait for 45 days.

Is Avatar: The Way of Water Available on Hulu?

Yes, Hulu will feature Avatar: The Way Of Water on its platform. However, you might have to wait a bit to stream this film on Hulu. More specifically, streaming chances are less until the film’s exclusive theatrical window ends.

Till then, you can watch other Sci-Fi and action genre films such as Akira (1988), Children of Men (2006), Possessor (2020), Looper (2012), Another Earth (2011), Predator (1987), Prey (2022) on Hulu.

Is Avatar: The Way of Water Available on Disney+?

No official statement has been released yet! As the “Avatar: The Way Of Water” belongs to 20th Century Studios, releasing on Disney+ can be a little bit complicated and uncertain. However, a deal to stream 20th Century Fox on Disney+ is still active. And this deal will be coming to an end by the end of 2022. So, fingers crossed!
This film, directed by James Cameron, can get released under this deal. At the same time, our guess strongly suggests this film will be available to stream on Disney+ between March and April 2023.
