‘Avatar’ Temporarily Removed From Disney+ Globally

The highly anticipated Avatar sequel, “Avatar: The Way of Water” will hit theaters on December 16, 2022.  To prepare for the film’s release, 20th Century Studios will rerelease Avatar in theaters worldwide on September 23, 2022 which will include a remastered picture and sound for the film.

Avatar was previously available to stream on Disney+ but has been quietly removed from the streamer globally, perhaps in an effort to encourage more people to see the rerelease in theaters.  It’s not unusual for Disney+ to remove titles in certain regions from time to time due to contractual obligations however it is rare to see a title removed from the service globally.  A reason for the removal and a return date has not been announced yet.

Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, “Avatar: The Way of Water” begins to tell the 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.

Directed by James Cameron and produced by Cameron and Jon Landau, the film stars Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement and Kate Winslet.

Four sequels are currently planned for Avatar. “Avatar The Way of Water” is set to premiere on December 16, 2022 in the United States. The other three sequels are set to premiere every two years, in 2024, 2026 and 2028.
