Exploring Pandora on your device
While it might be physically impossible to head to Pandora and have a hilarious banter with Jake Sully’s children, you can still watch them swim and build a new life in the movie. However, you may have to wait a little longer. While the first movie stayed in theatres for over 34 weeks, with the advent of OTT and VOD platforms as well as the onset of the pandemic in 2020, viewers choose streaming movies or shows on their devices over theatres often.
However, even though Avatar: The Way of Water was set to hit streaming platforms worldwide by February, they are officially doing so on March 28. Now, even though the movie is being distributed by 20th Century Studios which is owned by Disney, subscribers of Disney+ will not be able to view the movie on March 28 as it is only releasing on certain streaming platforms such as:
Amazon Prime Video
If you have a Prime Video subscription, you can either rent or buy the movie for $19.99 from March 28. The movie was available for pre-order before March 28.

Since Vudu is not available to stream in all regions globally, you can use a VPN to access the site.

In conclusion, the date for the movie’s release might be tentative on some platforms and may not even hit other streaming platforms due to copyright and distribution issues.
When does Avatar 2 come out on Disney Plus?
Currently, Disney+ has no plans of releasing Avatar 2 on their platform even though they own 20th Century Fox Studios. They are probably prolonging the release to build anticipation for a digital release. It could also be a traditional take where new movies would take almost a year to come on TV. However, since various digital platforms and apps have cropped up, it is not advisable or profitable for film and entertainment studios to hold off on digital releases for longer than a few months.
