Avatar has been removed from Disney+ ahead of its re-release in cinemas next month.

The 2009 sci-fi epic was removed from the streaming platform without warning to subscribers in advance, likely to encourage viewers to see it in cinemas before its sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water, is released in December.

Avatar is often removed from Disney+ in many countries due to a variety of reasons, including contractual obligations with other streaming services. According to What's On Disney Plus, the title has been removed internationally.

After the cinema re-release, it appears more than possible that the film will be put back on Disney+.

Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) live with their families on the planet of Pandora more than a decade after the events of the original film.

Nevertheless, when a familiar threat returns, they must unite with the Na'vi race's army to safeguard their home.

Last month, director James Cameron reacted angrily to trolls who have suggested that nobody cares about his upcoming film.

"The trolls will have it that nobody gives a shit and they can't remember the characters' names or one thing that happened in the movie," he said.

"Then they see the movie again and say, 'Oh, okay, excuse me, let me just shut up the f**k up right now,'. So, I'm not concerned about that.

"I don't want anybody to be whining about the length of time they spend binge-watching [television] for eight hours." I'll eschew this part of the review. 'The agonisingly long three-hour film,' he says, "Give me a f**king break."

Avatar: The Way Of Water will be released in cinemas on December 16.
