Where is the best place to watch and stream Avatar free online as of October 2021? We've compiled an updated list of streaming services that currently have Avatar available to watch so that you can refresh your memory before the Avatar 2 hits our screens!

Watch Avatar Free: October 2021 Update

• Avatar is available to watch on Disney Plus and it's included in your subscription.

• You can stream Avatar on Amazon Prime Video for an additional price. 

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:
