James Cameron’s “Avatar: The Way of Water,” the third highest-grossing film of all time with nearly $2.32 billion at the worldwide box office, is set to make its streaming debut Wednesday, June 7 on Disney+ and Max, the newly rebranded enhanced streaming platform from Warner Bros. Discovery. The Disney+ version will include bonus content featuring filmmakers, cast and crew.
Set more than a decade after the first film’s events, “Avatar: The Way of Water” returns viewers to the world of Pandora with the continuing story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), 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 is 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.
Produced by Cameron and his longtime partner Jon Landau, the 20th Century Studios-Lightstorm Entertainment production stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis and Kate Winslet. Joining the illustrious adult cast are talented newcomers Britain Dalton, Jamie Flatters, Trinity Jo-Li Bliss, Bailey Bass and Jack Champion. The screenplay was written by James Cameron, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, with a story by James Cameron, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman and Shane Salerno. David Valdes and Richard Baneham serve as the film’s executive producers.
