We added a new page to our gallery featuring pictures of a few set pieces from the Southern Air Temple set at the Reading Pagoda location. These pieces were right behind the building used for making props at the Navy base. There are also pictures of props from outside of the Hangar that was used to film the Northern Water Tribe scenes. Enjoy.

Hey guys. All the comments disappeared. Don't know why or how. I made a back up the other week, but that doesn't account for the last 4 or 5 news stories. Commenting is still not working on those articles, but I think you should be able to comment on this. Not that you would want to. Ha.

Seeing how last week there was lots of talk of Kataang vs. Zutara, I thought there wouldn't be a better episode than The Southern Raiders.
Summary: Zuko knows who killed Kya, and he is determined to redeem himself to Katara by helping her find the murderer. At the encounter, Katara lets her anger out, but shows mercy to Yan Rah in the end.
Original Air Date: July 17, 2008 Director: Joaquim Dos Santos Writer: Elizabeth Welch Ehasz

MTV Movie Blog got a hold of Jackson Rathbone at a recent Twilight convention and managed to poke him hard enough to get him to talk about playing Sokka in The Last Airbender.
"I got to do this fight scene where I get attacked by three different people at the same time; I’m running through a battle trying to find my little sister, worried about where she is, and this guy charges me with a sword! So, I make the split decision to just tackle him, take him straight to the ground, and then someone else comes behind me and tries to slash me in the back - so I pull that guy over me, and he hits his own guy.”
Rathbone said that he enjoyed being an action star. “It was crazy! I’m attacked by three different people [in that scene], and I have to fend them all off with a boomerang! I’m throwing people over my back, I’m constantly being stabbed at -- it was a blast!"
Jackson noted that he had a lot of fun filming the upcoming film based on the animated TV series, adding that he also got to “ride on Appa, that big beast flying-bison creature.”

The Last Airbender composer James Newton Howard was recently the focus of an All Access 360 Photo Shoot for Yamaha. Although he doesn't talk about Airbender specifically, it was obvious that he was working on composing the music for the teaser trailer while the footage was shot. Howard also talks about his working relationship with The Last Airbender director, M. Night Shyamalan.
The new design features a cleaner and simpler layout. People who had problems commenting on the news stories before shouldn't have the problem anymore. The Episode of the Week feature will now be a weekly news post instead of a link in the sidebar. And yes, it will be updated weekly!
Take a look around. See the new digs. Let us know what you think and comment below! More new features are coming soon -UPDATE- Something happened to the comments. Investigating...
