Nickelodeon’s critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning series receives the SteelBook treatment as Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Complete Series Blu-ray 15th Anniversary Limited Edition Steelbook Collection arrives February 18. The three-book collection features stunning new artwork by artist Caleb Thomas, with each book featuring a different element (Water, Earth and Fire) and the covers combining to form a beautiful triptych. Thomas was handpicked to design the collection’s covers after series co-creator Bryan Konietzko became a fan of Thomas’ art style on social media. The collection’s production run will be limited to 20,000 units.
Available February 18, 2020 from Paramount Home Entertainment and Nickelodeon Home Entertainment for $97.99 ($107.99 CAD). Pre-orders are open via Amazon.
Created by Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino, Avatar: The Last Airbender aired on Nickelodeon from February 2005 through July 2008, garnering both critical and audience acclaim while also winning Annie, Genesis, Primetime Emmy and Peabody awards. The series features an iconic blend of anime and traditional animation, alongside a talented voice cast including Zach Tyler Eisen (The Ant Bully, Little Bill), Mae Whitman (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Jack DeSena (All That, Grounded for Life), Dante Basco (Hook, The Legend of Korra), Dee Bradley Baker (SpongeBob SquarePants, Gravity Falls) and Mark Hamill (Star Wars franchise, Batman: The Animated Series).
The fan-favorite series has spawned a beloved animated sequel series, The Legend of Korra, as well as an upcoming live-action remake (with its original creators) to be produced for Nickelodeon and Netflix.
