Avatar Watch

Man, it's been months since the end of Avatar: The Last Airbender's Season 2... and STILL there's no Season 3 in sight. Well, at least, until now. An Avatar Panel has been confirmed for this year's San Diego Comic Convention! Last year, the first peek of the later episodes of Season 2 were featured; this year promises to have Avatar Fans foaming at the mouth with anticipation.

The SDCC's website describes the Avatar Panel as follows: 10:30-11:30 Into the Fire Nation: Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender, Season 3 Sneak Peek".

Get a first look at what's to come in the third season, including clips from new episodes, a visual tour of the Fire Nation from show creator Bryan Konietzko and director Joaquim Dos Santos (Justice League); insider information from the show's head writer Aaron Ehasz (Futurama); and a voice-over demonstration from Dee Baker (The Fairly OddParents), who voices Appa and Momo.

Well, I don't think I'll be able to make it to San Francisco, but I'm pretty sure videos of the Avatar event will make their way online soon after. The SDCC happens at the end of July. As for Season 3? My gut is that we'll be lucky to see the first episode or two before 2008 ends. If it happens, maybe November or December. Sigh. Oh well... it's sure to be worth the freakin' wait.
