I don’t think it’s any surprise to learn that when Disney+ starts streaming on November 12, Avatar, one of the largest assets from Disney’s purchase of Fox, will be on the streaming video on demand service. Disney+ will be the exclusive subscription streaming home of the award-winning cutting-edge film, which will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of its theatrical release on December 18.
From visionary director James Cameron, “Avatar” was the first motion picture of its kind to utilize a new generation of special effects to deliver a fully immersive cinematic experience. The Oscar and Golden Globe-winning epic is the second highest-grossing film of all time with an impressive $2.79 billion siting in the vaults.
To help celebrate this exciting announcement regarding the film’s availability on Disney+, James Cameron recorded a special greeting:
James Cameron is currently the middle of filming two sequels to “Avatar” and Disney has added an entire new land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom devoted to the storytelling of Avatar. Having “Avatar” on Disney+ only makes sense as part of that good old-fashioned synergy is well known for.
“Avatar” will join the previously announced slate of original series and films from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, Lucasfilm, and more, in addition to the vast library of nearly 500 films and 7,500 television episodes. Disney+ is now available for pre-order in the U.S. for $6.99/month or $69.99/year.
