FINALLY, it's set.
Book of Fire, the 3rd Season of Avatar: The Last Airbender, is set to premiere on television on September 21, 2007. This is the date on the special Avatar hologram cards being given at the currently ongoing San Diego Comic Convention. The long wait isn't over, but at least the end is in sight.
To recap things so far... The Mighty Earth Kingdom, the last great bastion against the invading Fire Nation, has fallen under the control of the ruthless Princess Azula and the Dai Li. Prince Zuko has chosen to side with his once-hated sister, betraying both his beloved Uncle Iroh and Aang the Avatar. Battling against two formidable Firebenders and dozens of Dai Li agents, Aang and Katara barely escaped, with Aang mortally wounded. Using the Sacred Water given by the Northern Water Tribe, Katara brings Aang back from the brink of death. The Avatar's party escapes Ba Sing Se on Appa's back, bringing with them the Earth King and his pet bear, Bosco. It doesn't get any darker that this, people.
The answers we seek, the comeuppance we crave, the action we've come to expect and the characters we love return this September. I can't fricking wait. More information and stuff on the 3rd Season is expected out this weekend as the Avatar Panel at the SDCC convenes. Damn, I wish I were there right now. Oh well.
