Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Will you choose the pursuit of power with Zuko and the Fire Nation, or seek peace and harmony alongside Avatar Aang? The choice is yours with the upcoming release of the Avatar: The Last Airbender 15th Anniversary Steelbook Collection!
Avatar: The Last Airbender is an American animated television series created by Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino, set in Asia inspired fantasy world in which the characters manipulate the classical elements with psychokinetic variants of the Chinese martial arts known as “bending.”
The highly acclaimed Avatar: The Last Airbender series mixes anime with traditional animation and represents East/South Asian, Inuit, and New World societies, brining humor, culture, and popular themes to the screen.
In Avatar: The Last Airbender, 12-year-old Aang and his friends must bring peace and harmony to the world by ending the Fire Nation’s war with the rest of the Four Nations.
Boasting a critics’ score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, Avatar: The Last Airbender aired on Nickelodeon from February 2005 through July 2008, garnering also audience acclaim while also winning Annie®, Genesis®, Primetime Emmy®, and Peabody® awards.
Nickelodeon’s critically-acclaimed, Emmy® award-winning series receives the SteelBook® treatment as Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Complete Series Blu-ray 15th Anniversary Limited Edition Steelbook Collection is now available.
The 3-book collection features stunning new artwork by artist Caleb Thomas, with each book featuring a different element (Water, Earth, and Fire) and the covers combining to form a beautiful triptych. Thomas was handpicked to design the collection’s covers after series co-creator Bryan Konietzko became a fan of Thomas’ art style on social media. The collection’s production run will be limited to 20,000 units.
Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in a world where human civilization consists of four nations, named after the four classical elements: the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads – each has “benders” (waterbenders, earthbenders, firebenders and airbenders), who telekinetically manipulate and control their element using martial arts.
The order of the Avatar cycle starts at the age of 16. The Avatar maintains harmony among the four nations, and act as a mediator between humans and spirits and is the only being who has the ability to bend all four elements.
Avatars possess the ability to enter a condition known as the Avatar State, in which they gain the knowledge and abilities of all past Avatars.
I’m so excited that Nickelodeon’s groundbreaking series is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a first-ever Limited Edition Steelbook release.
Avatar: The Last Airbender features a talented voice cast including Zach Tyler Eisen (The Ant Bully, TV’s “Little Bill”), Mae Whitman (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, TV’s “Parenthood”, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, “Family Guy”), Jack DeSena (TV’s “All That”, “Grounded for Life”), Dante Basco (Hook, TV’s “The Legend of Korra”), Dee Bradley Baker (TV’s “SpongeBob SquarePants”, “Gravity Falls”, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), and Mark Hamill (Star Wars franchise, TV’s “Batman: The Animated Series”).
The fan-favorite series has spawned a beloved animated sequel series, The Legend of Korra, as well as an upcoming live-action remake (with its original creators) to be produced for Nickelodeon and Netflix.
