Episodes: S3 FINALE — “Sozin’s Comet” — Part 4

“These designs of our heroes in their Earth Kingdom attire were some of our favorite costumes. Their celebration at Uncle’s teahouse was a wonderful way to wrap up the series.”

“The last image of the series was also one of its most stunning.”

And that’s all of the concept art I have. I found cool icons that someone on LiveJournal made with Avatar art that I’ve never seen before and I’ll spread that around too, but that’s all from my end. Hope you enjoyed this! (And I’m sorry it took so long for me to pump all of this out, haha.)

Episode: S3E16 — “The Southern Raiders”

“As we reached the end of the series, we really wanted to deal with Katara’s feelings about the death of her mother at the hands of the Fire Nation. This was one of our darkest and most serious episodes.

Episodes: S3E10&11 — “The Day of Black Sun: Parts 1 & 2” — Part 1

“Aang’s asymmetrical outfit … was inspired by Shaolin monk garb. I wanted him to look like a simple, humble warrior-monk like the great performers in Shaolin: Wheel of Life — vulnerable but strong.”

Episodes: S3E4 — “Sokka’s Master”

“Many of our side characters, like June and the pirates, were modeled after friends we knew. We always wanted to model a character after Sifu Kisu, but it had to be just the right one. When the talented and wise swordsman Piandao was developed as a mentor for Sokka, Kisu perfectly fit the part.”

“We ended up using swords from Sifu Kisu’s vast collection for the props in “Sokka’s Master.” They were ornate as far as TV animation props go, but I thought it was worth the extra effort to make these particular weapons look special.”

Episodes: S3E2 — “The Headband”

“The women and a small percentage of men from the Fire Nation’s warrior class form the military branch known as the Domestic Forces. They have three main purposes: to defend the homeland from invasions, to train the Fire Lord’s forces, and to police the Fire Nation. As a result, most of the Fire Lord’s forces are trained by high-level female Firebenders.”

Episodes: S2E8 & S2E9 — “The Chase” & “Bitter Work”
 

“The image of him (Sokka) getting stuck in the hole was inspired by Tom Hanks in The Money Pit.”

“In this design, consideration was given to the fact that Toph is blind, so she would only need a breathing hole in the rock suit. However, the animation was drawn so that the hole appeared over her eyes. Unfortunately, that mistake slipped right by us when we were doing retakes and ended up in the final animation!”

Avatar references in A Very Potter Musical / A Very Potter Sequel.

I found this a while ago, thanks to Moochka, and decided to make a post about it.

A Very Potter Musical
Voldemort’s pre-Avada Kedavra speech to Harry is straight from the finale in Book 3: Into The Inferno. He says exactly this:

"You’re weak. Just like the rest of your people. They did not deserve to live in this world. In MY world! Prepare to join them. Prepare to DIE!"

This quote can be found in act 2 part 7.
Voldemort says this:

"You’re weak. Weak. Just like your parents. They did not deserve to live in this world - IN MY WORLD! Prepare to join them. Prepare to die."


Also, in act 2 part 1, Ginny tells Harry:

"So, we kissed at the Yule Ball, and, well, I thought we were gonna be together forever. But we’re not."

This is a reference to wat Aang says to Katara in Book 3: Ember Island Players:

"We kissed a the invasion, and I thought we were gonna be together, but we’re not."


And the scene when Ron and Hermione first kiss (act 2 part 5) is the scene between Aang and Katara in Book 3: The Day of Black Sun Part 1: The Invasion, where Aang kisses Katara. The dialogue leading up to the kiss is almost identical.
The quote between Hermione and Ron is this:

Ron: “What if we don’t come back?”
Hermione: “Ron! Don’t say that! You -” (Ron kisses her.)

And this is the quote between Aang and Katara:

Aang: “What if - What if I don’t come back?”
Katara: “Aang, don’t say that. Of course you’ll -” Aang kisses her.)

A Very Potter Sequel

In act 2 part 11, Lucius says this to Draco:

Lucius: “Coward! […] Don’t you want to know who your REAL father is?” […]
Draco “So he’s still alive?”
Lucius: “Perhaps. But now I see that benishment is far too merciful a penalty. Yours shall be far steeper!

This is similar to what Ozai says to Zuko in The Day of Black Sun part 2: The Eclipse:

Ozai: “Coward! […] Don’t you want to know what happened to your mother?”
[…]
Zuko: “So she’s alive?
Ozai: “Perhaps. Now I realise that banishement is far too merciful a penalty for treason. Your penalty will be far steeper.”

In act 2 part 13, Hermione tells Draco when asked if she can forgive his past-him:

"No, I can’t forgive him. But I think it’s about time that I forgave you!"

This is similar to what Katara says to Zuko in Book 3: The Southern Raiders:

"I’ll never forgive him. But I am ready to forgive you."

And least, the quote “That’s rough, buddy” (Zuko to Sokka in The Boiling Rock: part 1), can be found in act 2 part 1 (Ron to Harry).

You can also watch this vid: Avatar vs. AVPM/AVPS (then you see the scenes next to each other), or Ulterior Motives (maybe another reference).

In “Avatar Day”, when Sokka lost his boomerang, he says: “I feel like I’ve lost a part of my identity. Imagine if you [Aang] lost your arrow, or if Katara lost her… hair loopies.” This is exactly what happens in Book 3.

The ending of a great story is always bittersweet, satisfying our craving for resolution to the conflicts that have tantalized us for so long, while simultaneously leaving us behind with a desire that may never be fulfilled—the wish for more time to explore the places that have become familiar to us, more time to spend with the characters we have come to adore. As fans, it is a feeling that we know well at Dark Horse, one that inspires every book we publish continuing a story once concluded elsewhere. 
That is why the Avatar: The Last Airbender comics started from the same place the TV show did: creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. To us, they revealed untold chapters in the story of Team Avatar, chapters to be told in the comics.
Just as on the TV show Michael and Bryan teamed with the finest talents in animation to bring their vision to the screen, with the comics they have teamed with the Japanese art-duo Gurihiru and award-winning author Gene Luen Yang to continue their vision on the page.
This January, Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise Part 1 begins a trilogy of original graphic novels that reveal what happens next to the heroes and villains from the TV show after the final episode. Taking place one year after the events of the last season, these graphic novels begin a new adventure for Aang and his friends that will change their lives and change their world.
With Gurihiru, Gene Luen Yang, best known for his graphic novel American Born Chinese, weaves a tale of a world learning the ways of peace after a century of war. It is a difficult lesson, one that will threaten to tear the friendship of Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Zuko apart, and plunge the world back into war.
Like all fans, Dark Horse wants to return to our favorite places, see our old friends, only if they are the real deal, and not some shadowy facsimile.  That is why we are so glad, and so proud, to present to you The Promise Part 1—this is it, the genuine article. Team Avatar is back, and we can’t wait to show you what they’ve been up to.
