Avatar: The High Ground volumes 1-3 up for preorder

Avatar: The High Ground volumes 1-3 up for preorder

Amazon now has Volumes 1-3 of Avatar-The High Ground available to pre-order. There is also updated descriptions and release dates. Currently it shows Volume 2 and 3 are going to release the same month, I wouldn’t be surprised to see these dates changed a few more times before it’s all said and done. Volume 2 now has a cover image as well, big thanks to Exostike on the Kelutral Discord for sharing that image.

Volume 1-Release date October 10th, 2022

It has been almost a decade since the humans were forced to leave Pandora—but now they’re returning—with an armada of heavily-armed starships!

After years of peace, Jake Sully has settled down with Neytiri and raised a family, so for him, the stakes are even higher than when he first went to war against the corporate might of the RDA.

During the development process of creating the four Avatar sequels, a lot of new ideas and stories were created and discussed. One such EPIC original story idea that didn’t make it into the sequels was James Cameron’s original story—“The High Ground.” Cameron shared what he had written with Dark Horse Comics and it is now being adapted by award-winning author Sherri L. Smith (The Toymaker’s Apprentice, Orleans), and illustrated by Brazilian artist Guilherme Balbi.

Avatar: The High Ground Volume 1 ventures into all-new territory in the Avatar saga, and is a direct prequel to the highly-anticipated film sequel Avatar 2!

Volume 2-December 6th, 2022

Humans have returned to Pandora—with an armada of starships—but Jake Sully and the Na’vi are ready for them!

Knowing this day would come, Jake has trained his Na’vi warriors with a plan that should make it too costly for the humans to try again . . . if the plan works.

But, any chain of events is only as strong as the weakest link, and in this case the weak link is human nature. As the plan unravels, Jake and Neytiri must race against time to return to Pandora and save their children before the starships land.

James Cameron’s epic original story “The High Ground” continues in this graphic novel adaptation written by award-winning author Sherri L. Smith (The Toymaker’s Apprentice, Orleans) and illustrated by Diego Galindo (Stranger Things: The Tomb of Ybwen, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers). Avatar: The High Ground Volume 2 takes fans to parts of the Avatar universe never anticipated!

Volume 3-December 20th, 2022

Jake Sully’s fears have come crashing to Pandora, guns blazing. The Sky People are planet-side, and taking Hell’s Gate by storm.

Jake and Neytiri’s children are still on base, surrounded and outgunned. Years of advancement on Earth means they’ll be bringing more firepower than Jake could anticipate. Unable to fully rely on his intel, Jake will have to improvise and risk it all to protect his family, his people, and their home. The battle is underway and every Na’vi is in danger.

Experience the epic finale of James Cameron’s original story “The High Ground” in this graphic novel adaptation written by award-winning author Sherri L. Smith (The Toymaker’s Apprentice, Orleans) and illustrated by Agustin Padilla (Suicide Squad, Transformers, Borderlands, Predator: Hunters II) and Miguel Angel Ruiz (The Passing, Crossed: Badlands). The exciting conclusion to Avatar: The High Ground leads you directly into the opening of the long-awaited film sequel Avatar 2!

Lego Con 2022

Lego Con 2022

Officially announced yesterday at Lego Con 2022, was our first official look at an Avatar Lego set, Toruk Makto and the Tree of Souls. It was a fun presentation with Jon Landau kicking things off, followed by Josh Izzo being at Lego Con to talk about the set, no direct embeds were allowed on this video, however the link below should take you right to the start of the Avatar portion-

https://youtu.be/ZHSnx-smuUA?t=3355

I think Lego is an awesome brand, very high quality products that also is reflected in the price. I didn’t think I’d have any desire to grab any Lego sets until I watched the Lego Con stream. However after watching my mind was changed. This is such a fun looking set and it’s obvious a lot of thought and care went into designing it, I love the pa’li (direhorse) that is included, the toruk (Great Leonopteryx) is truly epic in size, and the mini figs, they look phenomenal. This set comes with Mo’at, Neytiri, Jake Sully as Toruk Makto, and Tsu’Tey. This set is supposed to be the largest of the Avatar sets that have been teased so far, and is $149.99 USD. With the hype for Avatar increasing as the original movie rereleases into theaters, and as Avatar 2 approaches I expect a lot of the merchandise to fly off the shelves this year. So if you want to make sure you get one you can preorder one now through Lego.com, which shows the set will ship out by October 1 of 2022. You can preorder it here-https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/toruk-makto-tree-of-souls-75574

While the other upcoming releases weren’t covered during Lego Con, here is a list of all known Avatar Lego sets so far-

Neytiri & Thanator vs. AMP Suit 75571: $39.99 | 560 pieces
Jake and Neytiri First Flight on a Banshee 75572: $54.99 | 572 pieces

Avatar: The Way of Water Trailer reviews

Avatar: The Way of Water Trailer reviews

I wanted to share a couple of Avatar: The Way of Water trailer reviews that I have read and really enjoyed. The first one dives a bit more into some theories of who and what we saw in the first trailer, and the second is a comprehensive break down of the trailer in its entirety. Enjoy!

Clearing Up The Confusion About The Children – Avatar 2: The Way Of Water

Written by EanaUnil this article dives mostly into the children we see in the first trailer for Avatar 2. It would appear not everything is as straight forward as it may seem at first glance. The info included in this beautiful complied post was the brain power of Eana, Mako, Neytiri, and myself. It was a real blast scouring over the trailer frame by frame and comparing thoughts with the others. There are even more blog posts about the trailer, a gallery with Eana’s Avatar inspired art, and a comic she created.

Written by DrowElfMorwen this is an in-depth look at the trailer.

She includes a link to the trailer, where you can find a high quality download, and a step by step replay of the trailer in her own words

 

Avatar: The High Ground Release

Avatar: The High Ground Release

Huge thanks to Exostike#9829 on Kelutral.org‘s Discord for keeping tabs on Avatar: The High Ground. This is a comic series that I’ve covered before due to a leak on Amazon. However the listing was later removed from some of the various Amazon countries, and no official information has surfaced about it. The only thing spotted so far apart from the Amazon listings was a couple of photos during a live stream that showed what appeared to be characters from the comic. Exo noticed and shared that the Amazon UK listing had been updated and the photo of the cover was re-uploaded in a higher resolution photo. After a quick search I turned up a bit more information. It appears Volume 1 will be Hardcover and is due to be published in December of this year. This is the first time this information has appeared when I’ve searched for it. However, as often as Dark Horse has had their Avatar comics pushed back, take the month of December with a grain of salt right now. However we have an idea when it is scheduled to release.

Just a quick update, the first installment of the new Avatar comic series Adapt or Die was scheduled to release today. However it’s been pushed back one week and will release on 5/11/22.

As an ally of the Omatikaya clan, Dr. Grace Augustine begins negotiations to open a school for Na’vi children, but her plans for peace, hope, and unity could trigger an unprecedented disaster-one afflicting the most vulnerable and protected of Na’vi.

Avatar: The Way of Water trailer leaks

Hey all, as I’m sure you’ve seen, four stills from the upcoming trailer were posted across social media today. Out of respect to everyone who’s spent years working on the sequels I don’t share anything that isn’t official. Just as I didn’t share the leaked movie titles I won’t be sharing the 4 movie stills until the time comes where I can. However that doesn’t mean they don’t exist and that fan’s aren’t excited and talking about what they’ve seen. For fan discussion on the upcoming trailer join us on Kelutral.org‘s Discord where we are chatting about all things Avatar, and stop by and learn some Na’vi while you’re at it. If you are more of a forum user you can check out the Tree-of-Souls.com forum, which has been around since the early days of Avatar. I am a proud member and supporter of both places.

Avatar 2 reportedly will be Avatar: The Way of Water

Avatar 2 reportedly will be Avatar: The Way of Water

One of my Avatar friends, Olly (check him out on Instagram), shared a link to an interesting article today. A website is reporting the Polish branch of Disney just confirmed Avatar 2 will be titled Avatar: The Way of Water. This was one of the leaked titles that was confirmed by James Cameron in early 2019. However he mentioned they were subject to change and nothing at that point was set in stone. However this appears to be confirmation that the leak for Avatar 2 was indeed the title they decided to go with. Don’t forget tomorrow the Avatar 2 trailer is expected to be released tomorrow during Disney’s panel at CinemaCon.
