Today's badass dad composited some fun visual effects to make his daughter into baby Avatar Korra, the master of all four elements.
Stick around for the Earthbending.
Director James Cameron's plan to revisit Pandora is taking a Star Wars-esque route, as the Avatar director announced the fourth film in the series will be a prequel, taking place 35 years before the events of the first film.
In an interview with MTV, Cameron said he hasn't put pen to paper, but has an idea of what the prequel will address:
...basically it goes back to the early expeditions of Pandora, and kind of what went wrong with the humans and the Na'vi and what that was like to be an explorer and living in that world.
Whether it leads to more prequels is dependent on the the story-telling process:
...it's a logical thing to do because we'll have completed the thematic arc by the end of three. The only thing left to do is go back to see what it was like on those first expeditions and create some new characters that then become legacy characters in later films. It's a plan.
Nerd Nightly News:
There's nothing quite like amateur erotic fan art to get club patrons in the groove. That's apparently the line of thinking for Mike Basson, owner of AvaStar, the world's first Avatar-themed nightclub. The whole thing appears to be real, despite Basson's larger-than-life persona and incredible tackiness of this Pandora party-house. The video is NSFW, and induces more cringes than James Cameron's dialogue.
Fans of Battle Angel Alita were disappointed yesterday when James Cameron apparently slammed the door on his movie adaptation of the popular manga and anime series by telling the New York Times, "I am in the Avatar business, period."
All is not lost, though. Cameron has clarified that Avatars 2, 3 and 4 haven't killed Battle Angel.
"I still love that project. But Battle Angel is not going to happen for a few years," Cameron told Ain't It Cool's Harry Knowles.
That's good news, at least until he announces Avatar 5, 6, and 7.
