Avatar: The Last Airbender - 'The Complete Series' Blu-ray Disc is Confirmed for Spring

IGN says it's exclusive to one seller in early May, then everywhere else in early June!

Posted by David Lambert
    Go back to the beginning to experience the epic saga of Avatar: The Last Airbender again with this complete collection! From the discovery of Avatar Aang in the frozen iceberg to the mastery of all four elements, from the battle at Ba Sing Se to the final showdown with the Fire Nation, your destiny awaits as you relive all the powerful bending that will blow you away once more!
Back in October 2015, Nickelodeon and Paramount released a DVD version of Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Complete Series. And earlier this week, we passed along word that Best Buy's website was showing a high-def Blu-ray Disc release for the show was in-the-works, with a planned street date of May 1st at a $49.99 price tag.

This morning, IGN has an article confirming that date for Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Complete Series on Blu-ray...but exclusively at Best Buy, before becoming available for general retail at other sellers on June 5th. IGN reports a list price of $44.99 SRP (which is confusing; it makes it appear that Best Buy will be selling it for five dollars ABOVE the studio's intended list price!).

It's a good week for information about the Blu-ray of this show to come to light! Two days ago was the 13th Anniversary of the broadcast debut of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Nickelodeon had three seasons (or "books") for it, each subtitled "Water," "Earth," and "Fire," respectively. Each season had 20 or 21 episodes, and the voice cast included Zach Tyler, Mae Whitman, Jack DeSena, Dante Basco, Mako, Jessie Flower, and Dee Bradley Baker. The show inspired a theatrical film (which wasn't well received) and a spinoff sequel (which was very well received), The Legend of Korra.

Below is an early look, courtesy of IGN, of the package art for Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Complete Series on Blu-ray Disc. On the right is the actual package, and on the left is the slipcover the package slides into (that's what you'll see on store shelves). IGN says to expect a 9-disc set, with the bonus material listed immediately below included along with the episodes. For a bigger look at the package artwork, and a disc-by-disc breakdown of all the contents, please visit the IGN story at the link provided above! Our thanks to reader David Phelps for emailing and making sure we were aware of this.
