All right, I’m very pleased to break in with a rare weekend My Two Cents post here on The Bits this evening to report some very good news: Director James Cameron has now confirmed the impending 4K Ultra HD release of The Abyss!

The news comes from French journalist Arthur Cios of Konbini, who had the chance to interview the director briefly this weekend about the upcoming theatrical release of Avatar: The Way of Water.

After the formal interview was completed, Cios asked Cameron about The Abyss, who confirmed that he “had a new master and it would be out by March 2023 max.”

You can read Cios’ own comments directly here on Twitter. (And special thanks to Bits reader Stéphane L. for the heads up!) [Read on here...]

Obviously, if you’ve read my update here on The Bits (from early last week, on Tuesday), you’ll know that our own sources have been indicating for a while now that both The Abyss and the original Avatar would be coming to 4K Ultra HD concurrently with Avatar: The Way of Water. Our original information was that this would either happen with the film’s theatrical release, or with its home release. The decision has clearly now been made to go with the home release, and now the only question that remains is when that home release will actually happen.

The timing of the sequel’s release on streaming, Digital download, and physical disc has yet to be officially announced and probably isn’t locked in stone. It’s quite possible that it will depend on just how well the film does at the box office. But if Disney follows the usual industry pattern for such releases, it’s likely to come in early 2023. (Late Q1 or early Q2 would be my guess.) And now Cameron himself has suggested the March timeframe.

Rest assured, we will certainly offer more information about all this as soon as it comes in, but it definitely appears as if Cameron has now essentially confirmed the information we’ve been hearing from our sources. So the good news is that it seems that The Abyss is finally coming to 4K Ultra HD and likely Blu-ray Disc as well early next year.

That’s all for now. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Stay tuned...
