Avatar The Way of Water UK DVD, Blu-ray and digital release date

It’s been a long time since the first film came out, but get ready for the highly anticipated release of "Avatar: The Way of Water" on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital platforms in the UK. This sequel is set to be one of the biggest releases in 2023, and fans are eagerly waiting to see if it can live up to the record-breaking success of the original film.

Story and Introduction

Directed by James Cameron, the visionary behind "Aliens," "Terminator 2," "Titanic," and the first "Avatar" film, "Avatar: The Way of Water" picks up the story a decade after the events of its predecessor. Jake Sully and Neytiri, now living in relative peace on Pandora, must confront a new threat from Colonel Quaritch and the RDA forces who return to claim the lush moon as a replacement for Earth. Forced to explore new territories and join the Metkayina clan, Jake and Neytiri embark on a thrilling adventure to protect their home.

If you were captivated by the first film and already have it in your collection, it's only natural that you'd want to add the sequel too. "Avatar: The Way of Water" hit theaters during Christmas 2022, and while there was no early access Home Premier rental, there is a range of home entertainment options awaiting you.

UK Blu-ray, Digital, and DVD Release Date

Avatar 2 Disney Plus streaming release date

After its successful debut on the big screen in December 2022, "Avatar: The Way of Water" is expected to release on Blu-ray and DVD in the UK sometime in June or July 2023. The film will also be available for streaming on Disney Plus starting from June 7th. The physical release is likely to follow shortly after the digital release.

In North America, the digital version of the film was released for purchase on March 28th, 2023, followed by its release in the UK on April 3rd, 2023. Rental options are available as well, and more information can be found at the bottom of this page.

Due to the immense success of "The Way of Water" at the box office, the home media release has faced some delays. With a longer run at the theaters, the film has come close to the numbers achieved by the original "Avatar" back in 2009. As a result, the release schedule has shifted, and July is now the latest contender for the DVD and Blu-ray release in the UK. In North America, the physical formats are set to arrive in late June, further indicating a July release date in the UK.

It's worth noting that the first "Avatar" film is currently available on Disney+ as part of the 20th Century Fox ownership. This could potentially impact the release of "Avatar: The Way of Water" on physical formats in the UK. Nevertheless, the film's availability on Disney+ and its earlier release on digital platforms in the US suggest that the DVD and Blu-ray versions will be hitting the shelves soon. North America will likely receive the film first, with the UK release following shortly after.

North America Release Date

The home entertainment release in North America is confirmed to be on June 20th, 2023. Fans can look forward to experiencing the movie on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K, and even Blu-ray 3D, a format that hasn't seen a major release in a long time.

The digital version of the film was released on March 28th, 2023, a week earlier than in the UK. It's referred to as an early access release, offering a slightly less expensive digital option. This unique approach sets the film apart and creates excitement for the upcoming DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K versions.

For those seeking a complete experience with bonus features, the Blu-ray and 4K versions are recommended. These formats are expected to include extensive behind-the-scenes footage, giving fans an exclusive look at the making of the film. However, the digital release already comes with 3 hours of bonus content and special features, ensuring an immersive experience for viewers.
