If you’ve followed me and my home video release reviews, you’ll already know I’m a huge Avatar: The Last Airbender fan. I also loved and enjoyed its follow up series, The Legend of Korra which expanded on the original show perfectly. At long last both of Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko’s incredible series are available together in beautiful high-definition in The Ultimate Aang & Korra Blu-ray Collection, which lives up to its title and then some.
Most are familiar with both of these shows, but if you’re not, feel free to check out my review for the Avatar: The Last Airbender Blu-ray set from 2018, and my take on the first season to The Legend of Korra for more info. For this review, I will go into the my take on the set and its extras. First off, I love the Japanese Sumi art of the two Avatars on the outer box sleeve for the sets as it looks pretty sweet.
After opening the set I was treated to eight collectible (and cool looking) art cards and a bonus disc filled with new extras. The main special feature has the show’s creators, Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, going deep into the “Avatarverse” and sharing how they came up with the settings, characters, and more that fans will love.
Then there’s another cool feature that has voice actors Janet Varney (Korra) and Dante Basco (Prince Zuko) discussing and sharing their thoughts as well as talking about their podcast, Avatar: Braving the Elements where they re-watch episodes from the series and comment on them. I thought this was a sweet extra as you can tell the both of them love the show and enjoy talking about it on the regular, and their podcast shows no signs of slowing down either.
Outside of these cool special features and bonuses, these discs are the same from the previous released Blu-ray sets and contain the same special features from before. So you can expect audio commentaries on select episodes, storyboards and animatics, interviews, behind the scenes stuff, and more. Is this double-dipping? You bet!
The Ultimate Aang & Korra Blu-ray Collection is just that for fans and especially those new to the Avatarverse as every episode is here and in high-definition to look and sound their best, and the awesome bonus treats and new special features are sure to put any viewer into an avatar state of bliss.
