So I'm playing the new Prey game, and at a certain section, we have Mae Whitman sing. It is really friggin' good. Also, the character she is voicing is pretty much Katara IN SPACE personality-wise. Here, just look at her:

Avatar has gotten an HD release on iTunes, has announced on the show's official Facebook page with a clip included from The Crossroads of Destiny.

iTunes link

The clip looks really great! I'd be interested to see any comparisons online of this new master (and whether it's actually been remastered).

EDIT: reading that it's apparently a simple upconversion. Still, it eliminated A LOT of the issues the DVDs of the show had.

Honestly, the fanmade remaster from last year is in better quality.

What about... a metal song about everyone's favorite firebender?

Noticed this a while ago. Been hunting for an image of it. This is from Season 7 episode 7. This actually led me to create this whole in depth theory of how the Ninjago world is actually the same world as Avatar, but many many years in the future. I have thought about this way too much, please ask questions.

Oh man, I kind of wish this came out when Avatar was airing, we'd have had some rad AMV's. And I'm not even big on metal.

I mean seriously, I can picture specific clips of the show that would go along well with lyrics like these:

"I know you tried to lay it out
But your bloodlines been a blur
And you're passing through it all"
 
"Looks like you've found yourself
Down the road you came from
So carry on with the same abandonment
Just like your father
Another generation apart"

"We move just like flames
Conditioned by our motion
But this won't be the end
It must be so hard when
They played with your heart but
Just let me show there can be a way out"

"Why would I tie myself
To the one thing I can't fix
Pulling me down to the floor
Down to the bottom
Don't act like you're trying your best
Don't act like you've tried before"
 
Honestly, this could sound like a conversation between Iroh and Zuko.

Apparently, the lyricist wasn't thinking about Zuko when writing the song, but the guitarist wanted to name one after him. And since the whole band are fans of the show and found the lyrics were fitting to his character, they agreed it was a good idea.

Oh wow. Surprised they could just use those designs, but apparently Ninjago is shown by Nick in some countries?

For the 10 year anniversary of Sozin's Comet yesterday, Newsweek but up an article that features Mike, Bryan, Ethan Spaulding, and Joaquim Dos Santos looking back at the finale all these years later:

Just finished reading this. Wow. What amazing insight this offers into the finale and series as a whole. It brought chills reading about how they composed the amazing orchestration to Zuko and Azula's fight; hearing about how Zuko came to terms with his worldview; about how Aang's journey was really about being the last Airbender, even more than the Avatar, the whole time; how Azula and Toph were originally envisioned; the additional episode the series gained; every little thought and detail that went in; and how epic the finale was, perfectly capping an iconic series. It's great to hear it straight from the creators, to hear about their experiences, as opposed to just another contributor's article. Thanks for sharing! I came on to post myself because it's that good. Avatar is one of the best series - animated or otherwise - out there.

A must-read for any Avatar fan.

I don't mean to double post, but there have been some great articles coming out about the 10-year anniversary of the finale. Here's an awesome interview with some of the voice actors: Grey DeLisle (now Griffin), Dee Bradley Baker and Jack De Sena:

http://www.syfy.com/syfywire/an-oral-history-of-avatar-the-last-airbender-cast-looks-back-as-show-celebrates-10th

How hysterical that Grey still has not watched the show! She must have no idea how iconic Azula has become - one of the greatest villains in animation history for sure. It's so sweet to see the adoration Jack and Dee clearly have for the show and franchise as a whole - Dee seems particularly taken by how great the show was! Always love getting behind-the-scenes tidbits.

And now I know how Grey can ship Ty Zula. Cheesy

Thanks for linking that. I always enjoy hearing from Jack De Sena; he's a sharp one.

Huh. Didn't know that they were selling an ATLA/LOK complete collection blu-ray box set. Neat.

Yeah, I was surprised, too. I wonder if it's an exclusive of some kind.

It might be a UK region specific thing since it's labeled "Avatar: The Legend of Aang".

That "PG" sticker is also a UK thing. I've imported some Blu-Rays from the UK (and other regions that share their encoding standard), and they all have a rating sticker like that. And the seller is a third-party vendor, with the item fulfillment going through Amazon.

Seems like fellow Avatar fans are really,  really bad at keeping their mouths shut about spoilers.

I don't know who this guy is, but I really enjoyed reading his thread on Avatar. I admit I wish he had made blog posts about each episode or something along those lines just to get more commentary from him, but I'm amazed at how concisely he was able to express his thoughts in those tweets. Guess that's a skill you acquire once you get used to Twitter's word limit.

Anyway, it looks like Avatar has now become one of his favourite shows ever. Also, he liked The Beach, so this guy gets it Cheesy I do wonder if he liked Katara though. It seems to me like he didn't care much about her. Oh well.

Looking forward to his commentary on Legend of Korra.
