‘Avatar: The Way Of Water’ Sets Streaming Premiere Date On Disney+, Max

James Cameron‘s Avatar: The Way of Water will soon be making its way to both Disney+ and Max (formerly HBO Max) following a historic run in theaters. The sci-fi epic, which debuted 13 years after the release of Cameron’s original Avatar film, will hit both platforms on June 7th, being accompanied there by bonus content featuring filmmakers, cast and crew.

Going on to become the third highest-grossing film of all time following its December 16th launch at a take surpassing $2.3B, Avatar: The Way of Water picks up with the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids) more than a decade after the events of the first film, examining the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure. All of this against the backdrop of the breathtaking seascapes of Pandora, where audiences are introduced to new Na’vi cultures and a range of exotic sea creatures.
