Prepare to Enter the Avatar State!

May 28, 2010

Aang in the Avatar StateThe powers that be are making sure that no fan misses a chance to catch up on, or re-watch, every minute of the Avatar the Last Airbender Saga. Multiple promotions are going on during the month of June , all intended to stir the Airbender fan base into a pack of mouth-foaming, over excited maniacs.

By far the most exciting event in June is Nicktoon’s month-long “Avatar State” event.

This multi-faceted event will feature marathons, online games, and new downloadable content.

The “Avatar State” will begin on Monday May 31st at 2 p.m. EST. The first marathon is a collection of Avatar “movies” which will air from 2 – 8 p.m. The schedule is as follows:

2:00 pm                 The Avatar Returns

3:00 pm                 Avatar: The Siege of the North

4:00 pm                 The Fury of Aang

5:00 pm                 The Secret of the Fire Nation

6:00 pm                 The Guru/The Crossroads of Destiny

7:00 pm                 Day of the Black Sun

8:00 pm                 The Boiling Rock

Throughout the week episodes from all three books will be aired, and the weekend will begin the first of four “Power Weekends”. Each weekend marathon will feature a different bending style, beginning with “The Path of Water”, then earth, fire , and finally “The Path of the Avatar”.

With each “Power Weekend” comes a new online quiz, which can be played here.(Only the path of water is unlocked as of now.) Also, be sure to collect the new downloads that will become available as the weeks progress via this link.

While details are still sketchy, either week two or three will be “Warrior Week”, which features a collection of episodes highlighting the many fighting styles and skills in the Avatar universe. During these two weeks, extras from Season’s 2 and 3 will be aired along with their respective premieres.

The most monumental marathon takes place in week four, with an impressive week-long, commercial free, airing of Season 1.

Now, for those that don’t have access to Nicktoons there is still hope. The popular movie rental company Netflix is offering all three seasons of Avatar The Last Airbender in both home delivered dvd format and streaming online! And for those without a Netflix account they are currently offering one month free trials, during which, all streaming content is available.

With so many opportunities in the month of June, getting psyched up for The Last Airbender should be a breeze for any Avatard.
