John Campea on Avatar 2 trailer rumor and Zoe Saldana brought to tears

John Campea on Avatar 2 trailer rumor and Zoe Saldana brought to tears

“I can get choked up just talking about it. I was able to see just 20 minutes of the second installment, right before the year ended, last year, and I was speechless. I was moved to tears.”

-Zoe Saldana

I enjoy John’s take on movies, and thankfully he isn’t one to bash Avatar, quite the opposite. He praises Avatar and James Cameron. He covers his thoughts on the upcoming sequel and Zoe Saldana saying she was brought to tears by seeing 20 minutes of the upcoming movie. He also touches on the most recent rumor that Avatar will get it’s first teaser/trailer in theaters before Doctor Strange 2.

In an article posted by License Global, we got a clearer picture of how the Avatar 2 merchandise landscape will look. Some of this has been known for some time, but since it’s covered in the article I’ll touch on it again. More books will be coming from DK Publishing this year, including one already released in Europe, The World of Avatar: A Visual Exploration. Plus more books from DK will be released as the sequels progress. Dark Horse will continue to make comics for the franchise, telling stories from the past to the present, the newest release is due out on May the 4th, Avatar: Adapt or Die. A new console and PC game, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is coming from Ubisoft. It is expected to release in 2022, although no finale date has been announced. You will be able to play in an open world as a Na’vi, exploring the previously unseen western frontier. A new mobile game is coming from Archosaur Games and Level Infinite, Avatar: Reckoning. The new action figure line will be produced by McFarlane Toys, with buildable sets coming from Lego that will be from major movie moments from Avatar and Avatar 2. Some of the other licensees will be, Adidas, Disguise, Duvetica, Citizen, Trends International, Hallmark, Ferrero and Zing.

“Our focus will be centered around products that celebrate the characters and, most notably, the world of Pandora. With the amazing breadth and depth of creatures and flora, we’ve tapped into the immersive world of Avatar and its many environments. Given the story and themes, we’re excited to introduce products that capture environmental elements such as flight and water in innovative ways. To further support, we’re also planning global retail activations across multiple touchpoints so we can engage consumers where they are shopping today – both physically and digitally.”

“From a merchandise perspective, we’ve seen extensive collaboration between Lightstorm Entertainment and various licensees, with cross-category products including highly detailed figures and collectibles, apparel, accessories, footwear, home décor and more. There will also be an extensive new collection of products for parks and direct-to-consumer retail across apparel, toys and home products that will lean into the unique color palette, environmental elements and creatures from Avatar 2.”

It seems we soon will be immersed in lot’s of new Avatar products and media. It is really exciting to get the latest sneak peek into what is just on the horizon. It looks to be a very exciting end to 2022 for all of us Avatar fans. You can see the link to the entire License Global article below-

Pandora Explored-The World of Avatar: A visual Exploration – First look and Unboxing

The Youtube channel, Pandora Explored, has come back after a long hiatus. It’s one of my personal favorite channels on YouTube and I enjoy sharing the content they create. This video is a look at the newly released book, The World of Avatar: A Visual Exploration. It is full of spoilers, so if you’d like to keep the contents a surprise until you can pick up your own copy, I recommend saving this video until later. So far only released in some areas, namely Europe, but in the USA it’s currently scheduled for release on 5/10/22 however I’ve seen this date change many times in the last 3 years. If you’re in the USA and you don’t want to wait, you can always snag a copy off of UK Amazon now and have it shipped- Amazon UK-The World of Avatar: A Visual Exploration

New banshee hatchlings available for adoption from windtraders

New banshee hatchlings available for adoption from windtraders

There is another banshee (ikran) adoption option now at Windtraders, the merchandise store located at Pandora: The World of Avatar. You can choose to adopt a hatching, which currently includes one of two color options, an egg, a wristband for the banshee to perch on, and my favorite part, a teylu (Pandoran grub). Currently the color options are green/yellow, and red/yellow. I suspect more colors will be available in the future. The cost is $39.99

For a further look at the new hatchlings check out the article posted by WDWNT, it is full of photos and additional information- https://wdwnt.com/2022/01/photos-new-interactive-banshee-hatchling-toy-available-at-pandora-in-disneys-animal-kingdom/
