Everything You’ll Need To Be An “Avatar: The Last Airbender” Snob During The Movie Premiere

Impress and annoy all your friends with all your Avatar: The Last Airbender knowledge as you point out every single easter egg in the movie.

Avatar – The Last Airbender: The Complete Series [Blu-ray]

The most important thing to know for any movie based on something else is the source material. If you want to be as insufferable as possible, you need to be able to point out every single plot point and character that the movie didn’t touch on.

You need to be ready to go on a long rant when they don’t even touch on The Great Divide. You need to be ready to hand out a prepared 5 paragraph essay explaining why it’s actually the best episode and pivotal to Aang’s character development.

Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Official Cookbook

The official Avatar: The Last Airbender Cookbook is exactly what it says on the tin. Don’t worry about confusing sugar cookies with a sewing kit here. Still, for all accounts, this book is canon. Each entry has a short blurb written about it.

How else would you be able to know Aang’s favorite flavor is purple?


Avatar, the Last Airbender: The Kyoshi Novels

Non-Avatar snobs will try to claim the Kyoshi novels aren’t part of The Last Airbender saga, but you and I both know they are fools. The Avatar Cycle means that Aang is Kyoshi and vice versa, so this totally counts.

Plus, the movie will include Kyoshi Island, at the very least. So you need to be ready to explain the entire history of why the Kyoshi Warriors use war fans.

Avatar: The Last Airbender–The Promise Omnibus

The Avatar: The Last Airbender story extends far beyond just the TV show. The graphic novels not only expand the story but give a ton of flashbacks and character development. This might not seem useful in being an insufferable snob during the movie, but it’ll be prime fodder for while you’re walking out. How else will you be able to explain every character’s full arc up through their death in comprehensive detail?

There are multiple graphic novel series. The Promise is just the first. They do have a sequential order, but really you can pick up any one of them and enjoy it just fine.

Avatar: The Last Airbender: Legacy

Avatar The Last Airbender Legacy is basically a scrapbook from Aang’s perspective as he hands it down to his son, Tenzin. It’s a tour of the world of Avatar and the people and places that make it up. Not only does this book add more details to the locations and events you already know, but it also adds additional insight into Aang’s thoughts on them.


Don’t expect huge lengthy deep dives. This book is literally written for a child. Granted, that child is Tenzin, the sole heir to the Air Nomads and son of the Avatar. But he’s still just a kid.
