Multiple Awards Given to The Last Airbender!

February 27, 2011

Nearly sweeping the cermony this year, The Last Airbender received multiple Razzies at this years award ceremony.  In addition to Worst Director and Worst Picture, AIRBENDER also “won” Worst ScreenplayWorst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D, and Worst Supporting Actor in Jackson Rathbone.

It turns out, there is a way to make The Last Airbender palatable; riffing.

Thats right, the guys at Rifftrax.com (formerly MST3K), have released a rifftrax you can play along with The Last Airbender. You can forget how terrible the movie is, while you’re dying of laughter. The rifftrax for Last Airbender can be purchased here.

Zuckerman To Score Korra?

July 22, 2010

Fellow Avatar fan Matt Patches from UGO was able to shoot some questions Jeremy Zuckerman’s way during a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con. When asked if he were open to returning to compose for “The Legend of Korra,” Zuckerman responded with a resounding “absolutely!” Jeremy Zuckerman along with Benjamin Wynn, comprised the band known as The Track Team, who were responsible for the iconic music & sound design in “Avatar: The Last Airbender.”

I for one could not be more pleased to hear Zuckerman’s enthusiasm. Whereas the characters were the heart, The Track Team’s score was the soul of the original Avatar. An Avatar without their musical talents would be like Star Wars without John Williams.

More Korra Details!

July 21, 2010

More news is pouring in on “The Legend of Korra!” This time the Wall Street Journal Speakeasy got some juicy story & character details from Nick, and also a slightly higher res version of the previously released promotional still!

Nickelodeon said in a release that “The Legend of Korra takes place 70 years after the events of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ and follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenaged girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra.”

Korra’s quest eventually leads her to Republic City–the epicenter of the world of “Avatar.” A metropolis powered by steampunk-type technology, the city is inhabited by people from all nations. Korra finds that Republic City suffers from rampant crime and is also dealing with an anti-bender revolt. Korra is tutored by Aang’s son, Tenzin, is the ways of airbending.

Sounds like the world of Avatar will closer reflect the steampunkish early concept art from the original series as seen in the recently released “Avatar: The Last Airbender” artbook! It’s also interesting to note that Aang’s son, Tenzin, can presumably airbend, when Mike & Bryan previously stated that Aang would be the last of the airbenders.
