James Cameron’s second adventure into Pandora defied skeptics and was a record-breaking success at the cinema, becoming the third-biggest movie of all time grossing $2.31 billion (£1.88bn).


Aptly titled The Way of Water, the sequel is set 15 years after the events of Avatar and sees the Na'vi navigate the planet's oceans, continuing the stories of Jake (Sam Worthington), Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña) and the rest of the tribe.

Fans will be thrilled to know they can experience the film at home through various streaming services - so no one has to miss out.

Speaking with NPR's Morning Edition show, Cameron recently offered his thoughts on those watching the movie, which has been hailed for its stunning visuals, at home instead of in cinemas.

"If you watch The Way of Water at home on a reasonably large flat-screen TV with a decent sound system and you sit close enough and that way across the room, you're going to have a good experience," he said.

"I think when you start looking at something on a phone, you're sort of missing the point. Going to a movie theater is less about the size of the screen and the perfection of the sound system. And it's more about a decision to not multitask."
