Set your clock, program your DVR, and have the popcorn ready—next week is going to be an Avatar lover’s dream!
It starts on Monday and ends on Friday night with the Book Three two-hour movie finale. If you’ve somehow missed the teasers, feast your eyes on this:
It looks like the sort of trademarked suspense, drama, and sprinkling of goofiness we’ve come to expect from Avatar, no?
The Avatar premiere week kicks off with “Western Air Temple” on Monday, July 14 after the Avatar and the gang flee from the failed invasion of the Fire Nation. Reeling from defeat and having left so many behind, the group hides in the Western Air Temple to devise a new plan. They are displeased to find someone unexpected when they arrive, even though they are in need of assistance.
Book Three culminates with a two-hour movie, “Sozin’s Comet,” on Saturday, July 19 when Aang’s struggle with firebending becomes urgent as he learns he must confront the Firelord earlier than planned. Aang prepares mentally and physically for the attack as the comet nears, but when he finally faces the Firelord, will he have the heart to take his life?
It feels like a foregone conclusion, and yet, after almost-three-seasons I feel confident saying that they’ll throw us a curve ball or two. I can’t wait to see how they cap off the season.
Erm, I mean, my son can’t wait. Of course. I just, uh, watch it for work. Yeah, that’s it.
