We received a free copy of The Ultimate Aang and Korra Blu-rayTM Collection from Nickelodeon. Opinions are our own.

We have an interesting history with Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra in this house. I noticed that Avatar was on Netflix and suggested that the kids and I begin watching it together. After watching the first episode and the kids not being as enthused as I thought they would be we stopped watching. Then Eva watched the entire series on her own and loved it. She then dove into The Legend of Korra. Now she was the expert on both shows and I had to play catch up when I was the one who wanted to watch the shows in the first place… with the kids.

Well, we can watch the shows from start to finish now with this new collection from Nickelodeon. The Ultimate Aang and Korra Blu-rayTM Collection came out on December 7th and it is filled with so many extras including 80 minutes of never before seen content. One of those bits of content is a special recording with newly launched Avatar: Braving the Elements podcast hosts Janet Varney (voice of “Korra”) and Dante Basco (voice of “Zuko,” “General Iroh”). It is great seeing the two together talking about the shows. The other special new feature is exploring the Auditory Avatarverse with creators Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. They talk about how the music from the score was influenced and they then also get into a conversation with the Foley artists and this brings up so much of the subtleties of the shows beyond the visual art and amazing voice cast.

The set also features eight collectible art cards a that are done in the Japanese Sumi art style. The cards feature Aang, Sokka, Katara and Zuko from Avatar and Korra, Mako, Asami and Bolin. These are beautiful cards. This is all of the new stuff. The disc are also packed with hours of additional bonus materials for even the biggest Avatar and LEgend of Korra fans out there. Audio commentary, behind the scenes animatics and so much more. The complete list of everythign included on the discs in both series are found below. You can pick up this new set from through our Affiliate link below. also check out the entire description of the The Ultimate Aang and Korra Blu-rayTM Collection below that.

Watch the first few minutes of DreamWorks Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans


I cannot wait for this movie, DreamWorks Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans when it comes out next week! I loved all of the shows in the trilogy and was happy to see that there would be more content in the form of this movie. All of the people from the series are coming together one more time to save the day, we hope. I watched the first clip and I can’t wait to see how the rest goes!

Watch the first few minutes of DreamWorks Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans

The epic finale premieres worldwide July 21 on Netflix

Today, Academy Award®-winning filmmaker and executive producer of the multiple Emmy® Award-winning Tales of Arcadia series Guillermo del Toro, shared the first few minutes of Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans, the epic feature film finale of the saga premiering July 21 on Netflix globally. Watch the action-packed opening scene below!

“No More Running” Clip:

In the clip, as Douxie (Colin O’Donoghue) attempts to hide Nari (Angel Lin) from the evil Bellroc (Kay Bess) and Skrael (Piotr Michael), a war between magic and mankind is unleashed.

Following the events of the Tales of Arcadia trilogy, the heroes of Arcadia from the hit series Trollhunters, 3Below, and Wizards must band together in their most epic adventure yet to protect humanity from the evil Arcane Order, who wield their dark and uncontrollable magic to summon ancient titans that threaten to destroy the world. On the surface, Arcadia appears to be a slice of timeless Americana, but it is no ordinary town. It lies at the center of magical and mystical lines that make it a nexus for many battles among otherworldly creatures including trolls, aliens and wizards.

Since 2016 del Toro and his creative team have built a rich and emotional narrative while continually advancing the shows’ technical achievements.

“We always hoped these three series could culminate with a massive ‘all-stars’ reunion,” del Toro says. “We wanted the feature to improve and expand but to also deliver more scope, more spectacle … more emotion, too. We are very proud of the Tales of Arcadia and extremely eager to deliver this spectacular finale.”
