Disney’s foundation may have been built on animation, but these days, Disney is powered by franchises. That’s especially true in the theme parks; where major expansions have recently been announced based on some of Disney’s newer, blockbuster franchises like Star Wars, Marvel and... Avatar. And while you may have no…
Ubisoft is making another game about James Cameron’s Avatar movie universe for PC and console. Their most recent one, in 2010, wasn’t very good. Better luck this time! Ubi says development will be led by Massive, the studio behind The Division and will use that game’s engine. No release date or gameplay details.
When people talk about the current golden age of TV, they’re usually referring to big, serious dramas like Breaking Bad or The Wire. I am here today to tell you that Avatar: The Last Airbender, an animated show about a group of magical kids who ride around on a flying buffalo, deserves to be counted among them.
So, Disney released a “first look” at one of the Avatar characters that will populate its Pandora portion of Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Florida. And it’s horrifying.
There has been no avatar like Bjork’s avatar, which appeared live yesterday in all its strange glory for a London interview. London’s Somerset House is hosting Bjork’s Digital exhibit, which Bjork discussed live in cybernymph avatar form, using motion capture and 3D animation. Check out the full video for some amazing…
The best things come to those who wait—especially those who wait in line. Giving up their precious time to stand in a line for hours (or days) to do or see something cool has always been a badge of honor for fans. I have many such badges, because I’ve waited in a lot of lines for a lot of things. And I have very few…
Good news and bad news, guys: Korra, star of the Avatar sequel The Legend of Korra, has finally received an action figure courtesy of the folks at Good Smile. That’s the good news. The bad news is that if you were hoping for a Korra figure without a giant, oversized head, well, you’re going to be waiting a while…
Turns out, Tyrion isn’t just the god of tits and wine, but also an avatar. Truly a man of many talents.
Jurassic World is now on track to beat the box office records of both Avengers films, and it has a shot at beating Avatar. This is terrible, awful news for anybody who loves movies. Not because Jurassic World is a horrible movie—it’s actually pretty fun. But because this means a lot more pandering sequels.
The Matrix was a hugely influential film, which helped launch a million black-clad wuxia-fueled adventures. But maybe it had an even bigger impact? Josh Friedman, creator of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, suggests The Matrix ruined science fiction movies.
The Legend of Korra drew to a close last week with a series finale chock-full of drama, suspense, sacrifice, and last-ditch heroics. And then, when the dust had settled, something truly wonderful happened.
Wow. The Legend of Korra really knows how to do a finale. There is so much to talk about between Kuvira and Korra's final showdown, Team Avatar defending Republic City—and of course, that thing that happened at the very end. We're sad to see this show go, but we're delighted with the way it went out.
It never fails lately. We actually get a movie that's a new story, instead of a rehash or continuation of a venerable tale. And people immediately start piling on, pointing out all the stuff in it that's been done before. But just because something contains story elements we've seen before doesn't mean it can't be new.
Technology has radically changed the world of Legend of Korra, giving its people the wonders of trains, cars, and radios. But with Kuvira moving on the Earth Empire's final holdout, we see how technology also has the potential to make warfare in the Avatar world more devastating. How can the Avatar match the…
One of the particularly great things about Legend of Korra Book 4 is the way it has managed to, ahem, balance the show's enormous cast. In this week's episode, Tenzin's kids take center stage when they journey to find Korra. And, in the meantime, we learn exactly what made Korra's former antagonists villains.
Yesterday I posted my review of the Legend of Korra video game. While it had some high points, I mostly wasn't a fan. And now, with the Korra cartoon and entire Avatar universe winding down, I can't help but worry that we might never see a video game truly do the series justice.
The Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra universe is tailor-made for a good video game. It boggles my mind that the much-loved series still hasn't gotten one.
The final season of The Legend of Korra starts streaming this Friday, summing up one of the best shows currently on television. If you haven't been watching the sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, we have a few reasons why you should hop on this series.
