"On June 20, Avatar fans had double cause for celebration as Avatar: The Way of Water made its long-awaited debut on 4K UHD, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD and the original Avatar arrived for the first time on 4K UHD in High Dynamic Range to digital retailers and on Blu-ray disc.

Avatar: The Way of Water release includes over three hours of bonus content featuring the filmmakers, cast and crew.  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 Saldaña, 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.

Nominated for numerous Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Avatar: The Way of Water became the third highest-grossing film of all time worldwide and set a new benchmark for visual effects. Produced by Cameron and his longtime partner Jon Landau, the 20th Century Studios-Lightstorm Entertainment production stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis and Kate Winslet. Joining the illustrious adult cast are talented newcomers Britain Dalton, Jamie Flatters, Trinity Jo-Li Bliss, Bailey Bass and Jack Champion. The screenplay is by James Cameron & Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver, with story by James Cameron & Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver & Josh Friedman & Shane Salerno. David Valdes and Richard Baneham serve as the film’s executive producers.

The original Academy Award®-winning Avatar introduced the astonishing world of Pandora and became the highest-grossing film of all time earning over $2.9 billion worldwide and receiving nine Academy Awards® nominations including Best Picture and Best Director. It won three Oscars®, for Best Cinematography, Production Design and Visual Effects."


My family and I have been counting down the days until June 20th, so that we could get our hands on the two Avatar 4K releases -- both the original movie, which arrived for the first time on 4K UHD in High Dynamic Range, as well as the recent Avatar movie, Avatar: The Way of Water which also made its long-awaited debut on 4K UHD, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD. Even though we saw both of these movies in theaters and streaming, we wanted to get these movies on 4K to add to our growing James Cameron movie collection.  I don't know about you, but next to Titanic, these two Avatar movies are my favorites of James Cameron's.  Everything about these movies -- the story, the effects, the soundtrack, are out of the world and top notch.  And now we own them on 4K and can watch the movies with top quality and sounds, with loads of bonus content to go with it.

For our movie night this upcoming Friday, we are going to kick off an Avatar movie weekend. We will start with the first Avatar, and the follow it up Saturday with the second installment, followed by Sunday with watching all the bonus content from both releases.  It is expected to rain all weekend and be muggy outside -- so better to be indoors with the AC enjoying cinematic classics like these two blockbuster hits.

If you love Avatar and collect movies to add to your must own movie collection, then I highly recommend you check out these two new Avatar 4K UHD releases.  I can say it was well worth the wait for these two movies, and I am so glad we finally own hard copies of these movies, as well as have digital access through Movies Anywhere, too.
