Avatar: The Way of Water live stream: preview

Avatar: The Way of Water is the sequel to 2009's Avatar, which was the highest-grossing film of all time. So expectations were high – and the budget even higher – for the follow-up.

It didn't disappoint. Critics loved the groundbreaking visual effects and technical achievements, though they were less keen on the running length. But guys, it's an epic! When you're spending north of $400 million on a movie, you want to get your money's worth.

And director James Cameron certainly did. It was the highest-grossing film of 2022, and the third of all time (behind the original and Avengers: Endgame).

The story follows a blue-skinned humanoid Na'vi named Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and his family as they come under threat from humans and seek refuge with an underwater clan. And the effects are truly stunning, including underwater motion capture, which is a feat never before performed on film.

The cast also includes Zoe Saldaña (the only actress to have performed in all three of the highest-grossing films of all time), sci-fi legend Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet and Stephen Lang.

Avatar: The Way of Water has been available to buy digitally since March, but it's only available to stream from 7th June. You can watch Avatar: The Way of Water on Disney+.
