A film that set the benchmark in storytelling with technological finesse, Academy Award-winning director James Cameron’s Avatar went on to charter a new course in filmmaking with the use of 3D technology on a new whole mind blowing level.  For well over a decade, Avatar went on to lead the table for the highest-grossing films in world cinema with over $2.78 billion in global box office collections until the mammoth superhero comic book film, Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame $2.79 billion in worldwide returns went past it earlier this year. Meanwhile, with filming on Avatar 2 still ongoing, Disney Studios, who acquired all properties associated to the Avatar franchise, have now released a video in which we see James Cameron from New Zealand informing fans that the first film will begin to stream on the Disney+ streaming platform when it launches on November 12. A certain section of fans, who were hoping for an announcement on Avatar 2 will indeed be disappointed, but will no doubt be mighty happy that the blockbuster franchise is now part of a massive brand as Walt Disney Studios.
