Avatar news has been a bit slow, but yesterday the Daily Mail posted a few quotes from Brendan Cowell. While it isn’t much, it is a tiny bit of Avatar goodness, so I wanted to share. If you aren’t familiar with Brendan, it was first revealed that Brendan would be joining the cast of Avatar back in 2019. He will be playing the Captain of a private sector fishing vessel, and his character is named Mick Scoresby. This is the extent of the information that has been released about Captain Scoresby so far. Here are his quotes from the interview–
“I can say I play a character who is on the water. Yes, we shot in New Zealand. Yes, James Cameron is directing it. Yes, I worked with Jemaine Clement. The fact cinemas could open… it could be such a gift to the world, of this enormous visual and emotional spectacular. It’s really something special; [Cameron is] really something special. And from what I’ve seen, which is not a lot, it’s glorious.”
If you are wanting to start learning the Na’vi language, or are simply looking to connect with other Avatar fans then you need to come check out Kelutral.org. Over the past 11 years many of the fan communities have dried up. However Kelutral has a very active community, it’s a welcoming place, and you don’t have to speak any Na’vi to be a part of the chat. It’s also growing, and will continue to do so as we move closer and closer to the sequels. At the beginning of this year they hosted an online Avatar Con called Omaticon. There were games, trivia, two guest speakers, a community movie viewing, a Na’vi drawing lesson, and lots else. It was a lot of fun and a great break from all the stuff we’ve dealt with the last couple of years in the world. You won’t want to miss out on the next Omaticon.
If you’d like some really cool Avatar merch and want to help out Kelutral in the process you can swing by their Etsy shop. They have some really great shirts, hoodies, hats, and now have hand made ikran bracelets. Many of the items feature the Kelutral logo which is a top notch design. I can personally vouch for the quality of the products. What’s even better is some are eco-friendly, with the t shirts being 100% recycled fabric. You can view their Etsy Store here -> Kelutal Etsy
This post is going to be a little different, but different in a good way. Courtney Rosemont has spent the last few years working hard on the Avatar sequels. Since none of them have been released yet you may not yet have heard of her, but one day soon we will all get to see her hard work pay off. Until that happens you can help her out by checking out a children’s book she just had published. Thats right, not only has she been working hard on Avatar but she also is a published children’s author. Her new book is called, Howie Wash Your Paws. If you have a child, have a young family member, or have friends with children, this would make a fun addition to their bookshelf. The book features Howie in a rhyming story about cleaning your paws throughout the day. It features illustrations by Roberto Rivera, and is 36 pages long.
You can order a copy now at Amazon, I personally snagged two and they’ll be here Friday, I can’t wait to check it out and I’m so proud of Courtney, she’s such a hardworking, talented, and kind person. If you don’t have a need for a children’s book, don’t worry, you can help spread the word to others who might on social media. So far the book is off to a great start, and is the #1 Children’s book in its category on Amazon.
