Watch Avatar Free: October 2021 Update
The 2009 film, often marketed as James Cameron's Avatar, made a real sensation when it first came out. At that time, 3D was something new and exciting making more viewers willing to watch it at the cinema.
Many fans were excited to follow Jake's adventure in the magical Pandora, and would be eager to watch Avatar 2. While the sequel was delayed so many times that we couldn't help thinking it would flop, it finally got a 2022 release date!
Moreover, Avatar 3 has finished filming and was given a 2024 release date at the time of writing, while two additional sequels are on the table. Of course, some fans wonder if so many sequels are needed, especially since the concept of Avatar 1 hasn't aged particularly well.
The idea of a disabled character traveling in a magical world where they get rid of their disability won't sit well with modern audiences, when we need great works about disabled characters embarking on adventures as they are, rather than in spite of their disability. Moreover, far fewer viewers would appreciate the concept of a white male character becoming the savior of a different race. If the sequels are to work, they have to do better.
In any case, as Avatar was an important chapter of the late 2000s cinema, you might still want to watch it, even if just to compare it with the forthcoming sequels. Here's how:
Is Avatar on Amazon Prime Video?
Yes! You can currently stream Avatar on Amazon Prime Video. However, bear in mind that even if you're a subscriber, there will be an extra charge. You can rent the movie starting from $4.89. Alternatively, if you're going to watch it more than once, you can purchase it starting from £12.99 or $17.99.
Is Avatar on HBO Max?
Is Avatar on Hulu?
Is Avatar on Peacock?
At the time of writing, Avatar isn't available to stream online on Peacock. However, The Hunger Games trilogy is available to stream on this relatively newer platform.
As of October 2021, you can't watch Avatar on Paramount Plus. Thankfully, there are other ways to watch the film and we expect it to possibly become more widely available as the franchise is going to significantly expand in the following few years.
