Avatar: The Way of Water is getting its Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K release in June, and the first Avatar gets a 4K release the same day
Last week, we learned that director James Cameron’s long-awaited Avatar sequel Avatar: The Way of Water (read our review HERE) will begin streaming on both Disney+ and Max on June 7th. It has now been confirmed that fans only need to wait 13 days to purchase a physical copy of the movie. Avatar : The Way of Water will be released in 4K UHD and Blu-ray 3D on June 20th. A press release states that the home video release of the Avatar : The Way of Water
will feature over 3 hours of bonus content with the filmmakers and cast. The 4K UHD edition of the original Avatar has both existing and new bonus features including “Memories From Avatar,” where Producer Jon Landau leads a spirited conversation with cast members, Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang, recalling warm memories from production and reflecting on the extraordinary success of the film. Plus “Avatar: A Look Back,” provides a retrospective where cast and filmmakers reflect on their extraordinary journey making Avatar, the groundbreaking technologies they used to create an unparalleled cinematic experience, and the profound effect the film had on audiences worldwide.Directed by Cameron from a screenplay he wrote with Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, Avatar: The Way of Water
has the following synopsis: Set 14 years after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water will find Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) having started a family, but when the Resources Development Administration (RDA) returns to Pandora, the family is forced to flee to the reef. Jake and Neytiri have three Na’vi children: Neteyam, Lo’ak and Tuktirey. They also have Miles Socorro, a young boy who was born at the military base on Pandora but too small to return to Earth. The young boy, also known as Spider, was born on the military base of Pandora, but was too little to return to Earth, so he was raised by Jake and Neytiri. We know that Avatar 30,1001010, will introduce the Ash People as a villainous Na’vi. Avatar 40
is expected to “go nuts in the best way” and Avatar5 involves a trip to Earth. If things keep going this well as the franchise continues, we might even get Avatar 6 and 7.Will you be buying a physical media copy of Avatar: The Way of Water, and/or will you be getting the 4K release of the first film?
