Hello Na'vi nation!
With February behind us, it's time for another AVATAR news round-up.
The World of Avatar: A Visual Exploration
In a piece of news we missed from the very end of January, the AVATAR Twitter account announced "The World of AVATAR: A Visual Exploration", a visual encyclopedia featuring new and familiar flora and fauna from the world of AVATAR! Published by DK Books, "The World of AVATAR: A Visual Exploration" is available now for pre-order and will arrive by April.
AVATAR: Adapt or Die Comics
Breaking from an unlikely source, Screenrant reports that the latest from Dark Horse Comics' exploration of the AVATAR universe, "AVATAR: Adapt or Die" is coming on May 4th, 2022. Based on the official synopsis, it appears to be a new comic series exploring the time immediately preceding the first film and Dr. Grace Augustine's relationship with the Na'vi leading up to the tragic incident that prompted the decline in relations between the Na'vi and the RDA. "AVATAR: Adapt or Die" is available now for pre-order.
The passing of David Brenner
On a more somber note, February marked the untimely passing of AVATAR sequels editor David Brenner. Jon Landau tweeted about the loss, and while Brenner may not be a household name among AVATAR fans we can all collectively mourn that he will never be able to see the fruit of his labor and talent, nor our appreciation of his work.
Landau has established a GoFundMe fund to support Brenner's wife and three children, and Kelutral is selling a one of a kind Omatikaya pendant created by a community member to support Brenner's family in our own way.
February Naviteri Update
Finally, following a month's hiatus from his recent end-of-month Na'vi language updates, Paul Frommer returned at the end of February to offer some additional vocab concerning Na'vi's honorific form and how to discuss it using the language itself. Read more on Naviteri.org
