Product Description

In this award-winning anime series, Aang has survived a terrible battle and must face new challenges as he and his friends enter the Fire Nation. Bonuses: commentary by the creators, the women of Avatar, pencil test animation and Into the Fire Nation at C

Amazon.com

Book 3: Fire, Vol. 1 Avatar the Last Airbender: Book 3, Volume 1 is a slightly unusual suite of episodes in the Avatar canon, as the majority of programs are even more comical than usual. Not that the five shows included on this disc lack seriousness: the long-running series now finds young Aang (the once and future avatar destined to reunite the world’s four estranged nations) and his traveling companions behind enemy lines in the Fire Nation, disguised as colonists. In "Awakening," Aang arises--with a surprising headful of dark hair--from several weeks of unconsciousness (due to the injuries he sustained during a battle for Ba Sing Se) aboard a captured Fire Nation warship. Though he finds old friends Sokka, Toph, and Katara nearby, all urging him not to take matters in his own hands, Aang ultimately feels compelled to go head-to-head with the Fire Lord before he is ready. The result forces Aang and the others to remain incognito, setting up subsequent episodes in which the heroes are forced to lay low and find something else to do with their time besides fight adversaries. In "The Headband," Aang enrolls in a Fire Nation school, where his eyes are opened to such ordinary experiences as dealing with a campus bully and getting a hard time from strict teachers. In "The Painted Lady," Aang, Sokka, Katara, and Toph visit an impoverished fishing village and have to repress their typical instinct to help lest they be recognized as outsiders. (An alternative is found.) "Sokka’s Master," in some ways the most enjoyable episode here, finds Sokka feeling useless because he doesn’t possess powers similar to his mates. His solution: talk a master swordsman into taking him on as an apprentice. Finally, the most unexpected story in this collection is "The Beach," in which Prince Zuko, Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee--all of whom are back in the Fire Nation, too--take an awkward holiday but end up learning a lot about one another.

Meanwhile, Zuko--following his extended banishment from the Fire Nation--discovers that his father welcoming again, but only because his manipulative sister, Princess Azula, has falsely told everyone that Zuko killed Aang. Fearing that his father will disown him again, Zuko chooses not to tell the truth and works on having Aang quietly assassinated. Where Zuko had been more of a complete human being during his exile, he’s back to being a monster again, going so far as to keep his dutiful uncle, Iroh, in a dark, dank prison. --Tom Keogh

Book 3: Fire, Vol. 2 Avatar the Last Airbender: Book 3--Fire, Volume 2 finds the series closing in on a long-awaited day of reckoning with the fire nation. The five episodes on this disc continue those chapters on Volume 1 in which Aang--the young avatar--and his companions Katara, Toph, and Sokka live undercover in the fire nation, awaiting the moment when an alliance of warriors from the air, water, and earth nations converge to overtake the conquering firebenders once and for all. On Volume 2, the path to the day of battle, in typical Avatar fashion, is full of misadventures and intrigue, but also sundry revelations that make the pending series climax that much more interesting. "The Avatar and the Firelord" is the backstory of how the fire nation leader came to be a brutal tyrant in the world. Turns out he was the best friend of none other than the previous avatar; the souring of their relationship led to the troubles young Aang is trying to resolve. (While Aang is finding all this out, the fire nation’s Prince Zuko discovers his ancestry is more complicated than he’d imagined, and that he has more of a role to play in ending the war waged by his people.) "The Runaway" is a comedy about mischievous Toph getting into trouble for using her earthbending powers to win bets and make a lot of money. "The Puppetmaster" is a scary story featuring a waterbending old woman who initially enchants Katara, but then later is revealed to be a vengeful monster with terrifying abilities to control people’s bodies. "Nightmares and Daydreams" concerns an anxious Aang unable to sleep and stop hallucinating prior to the coming battle, while part one of "The Day of Black Sun" sees the beginning of the allies’ invasion of the fire nation. Lots of surprises in this last episode, with a cliffhanger ending that makes the next volume of Avatar most desirable. --Tom Keogh

Book 3: Fire, Vol. 3 At the beginning of Avatar the Last Airbender: Book 3 Fire, Vol. 3, things don't go quite the way one would have hoped at the end of Vol. 2. Aang--the young avatar--and his companions Katara, Toph, and Sokka were part of a major assault on the tyrannical fire nation, and hopes of victory were high. In "The Day of Black Sun, Part 2: The Eclipse," however, circumstances reverse the heroes' fortunes, forcing Aang, his friends and the very youngest warriors to flee the battle. As they regroup at the Western Air Temple, mourning the expected imprisonment of the adults left behind, Aang comes face to face with an unexpected, would-be ally: Zuko, prince of the fire nation. Sokka and Katara refuse to accept Zuko's guarantee that he is truly on their side (they've been through this before), but Toph and Aang are a little more receptive to the idea. Good thing. In "The Firebending Masters," Aang accepts that Zuko could be the firebending mentor he needs to show him how to conquer the most elusive of the four elements. But it isn't easy: Zuko loses his power and must retreat to a fire nation temple, where he can learn the origins of his native gift. The set of five stories on this disc concludes with the two-part "The Boiling Rock," in which Sokka and Zuko infiltrate a fire nation maximum security prison in hopes of freeing Sokka's father. Trying hard to stay clandestine, Zuko's identity is revealed anyway, jeopardizing not only the mission but Zuko and Sokka's very freedom. The excitement is endless in the long-running Avatar series, and developments (especially Zuko's acceptance by Aang and the others) are as heartening as they are surprising. --Tom Keogh

Book 3: Fire, Vol. 4 The long-running series Avatar the Last Airbender comes to a dazzling conclusion in Book 3 Fire, Volume 4. Poised for quite a number of episodes (seen in previous volumes) to go to war against the tyrannical Fire Nation, Aang the young Avatar and his cohorts must now bring down the Fire Lord and his army, or watch them ramp up their destructive powers during an imminent solar eclipse. But there's a lingering question only Aang can answer: can the Avatar, who has never killed anyone, bring himself to take the Fire Lord's life? That is what he must do, according to Zuko, the Fire Prince who has thrown in his lot with Aang and the latter's friends.

While Aang is sorting that out--receiving various wisdoms from past Avatars and advice from a giant turtle-lion creature--Zuko and Katara take another leg of the battle by confronting Zuko's crazed sister. Meanwhile, Sokka re-asserts his latent talent for commanding dangerous missions as he and earth-bender Toph attempt to sabotage Fire Nation airships. The final episodes on this disc are thrilling, in no small part because they have been so long in arriving. Before those, however, there are a couple of interesting chapters to get through, including "The Southern Raiders," in which Katara attempts to exact revenge for the disappearance of her mother. As always, there's some comic relief, in this case "The Ember Island Players," in which our heroes experience the ignominy of watching some of their previous adventures become a ridiculous, staged play. --Tom Keogh

I had watched the movie, The Last Air Bender, first. I wasn't impressed. So, I didn't think the animated series would be any good. I couldn't be more wrong. I was so addicted to the series that I recommended it to all my friends. It's an incredible animation/cartoon. The characters seem so real--I felt the emotions from their voices and character expressions. I've never seen a cartoon that could move me with feelings, like those expressions found with real people, as this cartoon did for me. The stories were so touching--war and peace, love and hate, anger and happiness, caring and carelessness, worried and emotionless, motherly and fatherly, family and individualism, people and the environment, conflict and serenity, and so many more feelings and emotions that we face as human beings. This tv series of three seasons made me smile and sad at the same time. It makes you want to know more about the story; but I guess the wonders in all of us of what happens after season 3 is what captures our imagination. The story can go on forever, but the first three seasons made it all worthwhile. I will miss all the voices and all the characters of this show. I think every person should learn from this show as to what being human is all about in this world. It was an honor to watch this show thanks to all those involved in making this series. Congrats... Great Job. I love the show.

As a mom of two who is nearing 40, I was begrudgingly introduced to the Avatar series when my son talked me into getting the first disk of Book 1: Earth through Blockbuster. I sat down with the kids when they put the disk. I had NO intention of paying attention to the show. I am VERY happy to say that by the end of that first disk I couldn't wait to get the next. This show is truly great. The story lines are wonderful, the music is powerful and you truly grow to care about these kids who are working to save the world. We just finished the final disk of the final book tonight and it was FABULOUS. We are looking forward to getting the full set in September to complete our set collection. I can't recommend this series enough.

As a fan of anime since the 1980's, and that being said, I'm also an almost 40-year old mom of three boys age 3 to 12, and a licensed acupuncturist and Medical Qigong practitioner in my home state of California, so I was completely blown away by the Avatar series. Not only is it better than my previous favorites, namely Robotech, and the wonderful Miyazaki classics like Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle, etc., but it is just amazing to me the kind of culture and spiritual essence of truth that it is spreading to the masses, and to our children especially.

I have had to watch the whole series over and over again and each time I have gotten more out of it. The animation and artistry is spectacular, the music dramatic and inspiring, and the depth of the story ranges from themes of suspense, comedy, trajedy, respect, heart-break, and love. The main characters develop and grow up through their journey, and in this thrid series, we find them having to face all their fears and transformations, in order to save the world.

There was a whole lot of authenticity to Chinese and eastern cultures that really impressed me. Also, the spirituality from Daoism, Zen, Buddhism, and Hinduism is apparent in the wisdom shared by Aang, Uncle Iroh, and the Lion-Turtle. The concepts of qi (chi) blockage and energy medicine are portrayed here in ways I've never seen before--the writers really know their stuff, not only in the martial-arts way.

It blew my mind seeing what the Lion-Turtle did to Aang, lighting up his heart chakra and third-eye chakra, giving Aang a new "power" he had not had in any of his previous Avatar lives.

I must say when this show first came out I never wanted to watch it because I figured it was just like all this pokemon and dragonball z nonsense out on tv. This show is very different, the first episode I watched was an episode in the first book I believe where it shows Momo's story and Zuko's story where he goes out on a date with a girl, and I just thought what is this show really all about? Luckily nickelodeon was showing Avatar from the beginning that week for the beginning of the second season. I never missed an episode after that.

After all the waiting for the third season to finish I really was expecting a fourth one, because we have the books of: Earth,Water, and Fire. The creators could have made another book about Aang's life, but maybe it was better the way they ended this. I hope I didn't spoil anything by saying that.

I hope Avatar isn't ruined by M. Night Shyamalan, since he is planning on making an Avatar movie with real actors. Either way I will be buying this when it comes out, and I recommend it to anyone with or without children. For the kids it teaches them patience, understanding, choosing between right and wrong, and it's also very funny. I'd be willing to bet that almost anyone would fall in love with this show after watching the first episode.

Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Complete Book Three Collection in Blu-ray
Albert, there are no plans for a bluray release for Avatar The Last Airbender. Why? Because they weren't shot in 1080i/p. They were shot in 480i. This means Nickelodeon would have to do some extensive remastering of the entire series in order to release in bluray. Hope this helps. I'd plan on a... Read More

Sorry, there are no alternate language options on this set (probably the same for the singles too.)
Quite odd... as the prior two seasons had both Spanish and French audio options included. Not this one tho.

does anyone know if the avatar is over for good?
Well, the creators said only three season of Avatar but there is nothing to stop them from doing "Zuko: The Firebender lord" Think about it. His mother is exiled, and he has to rule a country/kingdom where most of the people think he is a traitor who worked with the Avatar to seize... Read More

Official DVD or just burned DVD of the episodes?
Some of the Nick Cartoons are burned to DVR for order instead of dvd like Rugrats and Doug. These are actual dvds made by Paramount .
