Kukulope a member of the Wind Trader Clan

Image
  I can't take any credit for discovering this information, so big thanks to @avataritaliaufficiale for sharing this first on Instagram. After community speculation that Kukulope from Avatar - Frontiers of Pandora could be our first look at a member from the Wind Trader clan, it has been confirmed she is indeed a member. From the Art Station account of Massive Entertainment, Associate Art Director Mikhail Greuli, we learn some new details about Kukulope. Here is what he shared- Kukulope is a member of a Wind trader clan and it was an absolute joy to work for Lightstorm costume team to bring her to life. And thanks to all the pipeline and communication improvements in the later parts of the production we also got to create her own space inside of the Hometree. Something I found interesting is that he called her a member of a Wind Trader clan, not the Wind Trader clan, is it possible there are different clans considered Wind Traders? This certainly leaves that possibility open

Concept Art revealed for Avatar at Disneyland

Image
  During today's 2024 Disney shareholder meeting, Bob Iger shared the above image. So far few details have been revealed, certainly none bigger than this concept image. If you remember the concept art for what eventually become Pandora-The World of Avatar, then you know Disney can truly deliver on this vision for the upcoming Avatar experience at Disneyland. This past November a Disney rep revealed the new Avatar land would be in Disney's California Adventure, however that hasn't been officially announced and could change. While few details were announced today, this photo certainly has me excited. www.avatarsequels.com    

Tsu'tey and Eytukan are back

Image
    This past week on his personal Instagram, Jon Landau posted the above photo. Essentially confirming we will be seeing more Tsu'tey and Eytukan flashback scenes or when someone connect with Eywa. I can't express how happy this makes me, I love the connections to the Omatikaya and specifically to these two characters who we lost way too soon in the franchise. One thing I am surprised about is that this was shared with us and wasn't kept under wraps, can you imagine the impact of seeing the movie and not knowing these two were going to make an appearance before hand? www.avatarsequels.com

Fortnite x Disney and Avatar

Image
Disney and Epic games announced today that they are going to collaborate on a new game and entertainment universe. Disney is also investing 1.5 billion into Epic Games to buy a stake of the company. Here are some of the highlights of the Disney press release- "The new persistent universe will offer a multitude of opportunities for consumers to play, watch, shop and engage with content, characters and stories from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, Avatar and more. Players, gamers and fans will be able to create their own stories and experiences, express their fandom in a distinctly Disney way, and share content with each other in ways that they love. This will all be powered by Unreal Engine." “Our exciting new relationship with Epic Games will bring together Disney’s beloved brands and franchises with the hugely popular Fortnite in a transformational new games and entertainment universe,” said Robert A. Iger, Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company. “This ma

Screen Rant Interview with James Cameron, Avatar 3 filming

Image
  Photo from Looper As we've seen several Avatar actors posting photos of them back at Manhattan Beach Studios doing Mo-cap for Avatar, there's been a lot of theories popping up online. Some speculated filming on Avatar 4 or possibly was happening, while others were a bit more tame, saying these were the reshoots and pickups for Avatar 3 being wrapped up. Well thanks to ScreenRant and an interview they had with James at this past Sunday's Saturn Awards, we have the answer. When asked about Avatar 3, here is what James had to say- "It’s pretty much in the can. We’re shooting pick-ups on 3, which is just filling in the last 2 or 3%, and we’ve also got live-action pick-ups in June, that's another couple percent. We've got about a quarter of movie 4 in the can. We’re post on 3 and now doing the VFX, which is an enormous job. I’ll need every second between now and then to get it done. The tech has reached the point right now where it’s really what we need. We make l

James Cameron has ideas for Avatar 6 and 7

Image
  James Cameron gave an exclusive interview to People Magazine this past Sunday at the Saturn Awards. Here are some of the quotes from JC- “We're fully written through movie five, and I've got ideas for six and seven, although I'll probably be handing the baton on at that point,” Cameron told PEOPLE. “I mean, mortality catches up. But I mean, we're enjoying what we're doing. We're loving it. We get to work with great people.”  This is exciting for me, for one James was always known as a tough as nails director who many people hated to work with and be around early in his career. That clearly isn't the case now, I love that he's acknowledging his mortality but yet loves the process, and the people he's working with so much that he just wants to keep grinding and creating Avatar content for us fans. “Star Trek, Star Wars, the world building franchises that have been around since I was a kid, those were my inspirations," said Cameron. "A

Happy 8 year anniversary of the Toruk Soundtrack release

Image
  Today is the 8th anniversary of the soundtrack from Cirque du Soleil's Toruk-The First Flight. Featuring vocals from Cumie Dunio, it is truly an Avatar classic. Toruk came at a time when Avatar 2 was no where on the horizon, and the fandom was waning, however it smashed Cirque records and was a huge hit in its own right. I wanted to take a moment to remember the soundtrack, as it was a integral part of the show and remains a must listen for me still to this day. Cumie's vocals are truly special, I recommend all Avatar fans to pick it up. www.avatarsequels.com Cumie Dunio Purchase the soundtrack here - Toruk - The First Flight Soundtrack Follow Cumie Dunio - https://www.youtube.com/user/CumieMusic
