Avatar: The Way of Water is already making box office waves (ha). The long-awaited sequel to James Cameron’s 2009 sci-fi blockbuster, The Way of Water is playing in everything from from 3D IMAX to regular 2D and has become a theatrical attraction, having at the time of writing made close to $500 million globally. But if you’re waiting to watch this incredibly long movie from the comfort of your own couch (where you can press pause when you need to use the bathroom), how long will you have to wait?

Avatar: The Way of Water will be available to stream on Disney Plus and Max June 7, Disney announced Monday.

For Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, since Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the company has adopted a minimum 45-day window between the theatrical debut and streaming release. However, depending on how successful the movie is, Disney tends to extend that pipeline.

In the meantime, you can rent or purchase the movie digitally on VOD vendors like Amazon, Apple, Google Play, and Vudu. Check out our review and then geek out over the space whales.
