If you can’t decide what to watch this weekend, ScreenCrush’s Staff Picks are here to help. They’re like the recommendations at an old video store, except you don’t have to put on pants or go outside to get them. Here are six things to watch this weekend:
Avatar: The Last Airbender
It was over a year ago that we first learned The Legend of Korra would get a full series release on Blu-ray, but only now have the details finally bent into shape. You’ll be able to catch Korra’s adventures before 2016 is out, so check out the first of special features and cover art!
Comic-Con 2015 taught us that we needn’t say goodbye to The Legend of Korra (or the Avatar-verse) forever, following announcements of a sequel graphic novel, but fans of Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino’s animated epic have even more reason to celebrate. Not only will Korra get a full Blu-ray and DVD release, but so too have we the first key art.
'Avatar: The Last Airbender' sequel series 'The Legend of Korra' surprised us all with the announcement that the first episodes of Book 3 "Change" would air this coming Friday night, but even that seems too far away. That being the case, you can watch the first five minutes of 'The Legend of Korra' season 3 premiere "A Breath of Fresh Air" right now!
We don't often cover Nickelodeon's incredible 'The Legend of Korra' series in spite of our love for it, though the latest guest voices announced in advance of next week's Comic-Con 2013 panel are too good not to share. Joining the 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' sequel series are 'Parks and Recreation' star Aubrey Plaza, along with James Remar ('Dexter') and Lisa Edelstein ('House'), along with a number of others for Book 2: "Spirits."
Nickelodeon's 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' has plenty of fun, goofy characters that always seem to know how to break the tension. Aang, our protagonist, is a young boy who possesses a great sense of humor and a lightheartedness that brings joy to those around him. But when he goes into the Avatar State, you can bet that things are going to get very real.
If you've ever seen 'Avatar: The Last Airbender,' then chances are you're probably a fan of Toph Beifong, the blind earthbender who's a little rough around the edges, despite being from an aristocratic family. If so, then feast your eyes on this spot-on cosplay!
