When Is the Avatar: The Way of Water Release Date
It’s been a long time coming, and the second installment to the Avatar franchise will hit theaters on December 16, 2022. The first two sequels were announced way back in 2010, with hopes for a 2014 release. The demands of the film saw a total of eight theatrical delays over many years, with the last delay announced in June of 2020, bringing us to the current 2022 release date. The third installment is planned for release in December of 2024, the fourth coming out in December of 2026, and the final film released in December of 2028. The second movie will reportedly have a run time of about 3 hours and 10 minutes, so it really is shaping up to be quite the experience. Avatar: The Way of Water will also be releasing in China, one of the few Hollywood movies to do so since the pandemic. Tickets for the film are now on sale so be sure to get yours. Ahead of the release, 18 minutes of new footage was screened at Brazil’s Comic-Con Experience (CCXP) 2022.
Avatar: The Way of Water will likely not release on Netflix as it should be exclusive to Disney Plus when it releases on streaming. Disney owns the Avatar franchise and the first movie is only available on Disney Plus, so it would be a big surprise if Netflix was allowed to stream it.
What makes the situation more confusing is that Netflix has the rights to the Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series and its spin-off, The Legend of Korra. Netflix is currently developing an Avatar: The Last Airbender TV series, in fact. This series has no connection to the James Cameron-directed Avatar movies set on Pandora, apart from the title.
Will Avatar 2 release on HBO Max?
Avatar: The Way of Water will not release on HBO Max, for the same reason as Netflix.
Will Avatar: The Way of Water release on Amazon Prime Video?
Avatar: The Way of Water will release on Prime Video but will only be available to buy or rent, not to stream. It will release when Avatar 2 becomes available to buy digitally. This should be around 50 days after the movie’s theatrical release on December 16, so approximately February 4, 2023.
The new Avatar movie from director James Cameron is over 13 years in the making and will release on December 16. While reviews aren’t yet available, early reactions from the press were very positive. Fans, on the other hand, have had mixed reactions to the reveal of Sigourney Weaver as the daughter of Jake and Neytiri.
