The amazing drive-through experience kicked off with a terrific, windshield wipe before entering in the world of Bikini Bottom. With the pandemic, drive-in events have been all the rave, but the fun windshield wipe opportunity was such a unique touch to the Sponge On The Run drive-through event that made the experience stand out even more. Attendees were then able to say hi to SpongeBob and Patrick from the safety of their cars and drive-through iconic SpongeBob locations including Bikini Bottom, Kamp Koral and the Lost City of Atlantic City.

As guests drove through all of the awesome worlds, they were able to enjoy the upbeat and epic soundtrack of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run featuring songs like “Agua” by Tainy and J. Balvin, “How We Do” by Snoop Dogg and Monsta X, and “Krabby Step” by Tyga. The experience was so interactive and kids and their families were able to use QR codes to fully immerse themselves into the sponge-tastic, underwater world. Using the QR codes, guests were able to have fun taking pictures with SpongeBob, taking part in some fun games and challenges, and so much more.

Attendees were also given a bunch of delicious snacks that were packaged inside what looked like a brown paper lunch bag. Inside the snack bag were yummy treats including popcorn, cheddar cheese balls, milk chocolate coins, s’mores and some SpongeBob SquarePants and Kamp Koral face masks.

After the drive-through experience, guests were able to park their car and watch the full The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run, along with a special preview of Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years. The excellent event was such a safe and stupendous way to have a great time with family and bond over a brilliant movie. All COVID-19 safety precautions were taken, with stagger parking to ensure all cars were six-feet away from each other, everyone wearing masks and even the food being slid down and given to attendees safely in their car.

Avatar – La Promessa, la Recensione

Le graphic novel di Avatar arrivano in Italia grazie a Tunué

La Promessa narra gli eventi successivi alla serie animata  di Avatar, The Last Airbender ed è un ottimo modo per reimmergersi nel mondo di Aang e soci.

La collana TipiTondi di Tunué fa un salto in avanti per qualità e contenuto, proponendo anche nel nostro paese le graphic novel di Avatar, The Last Airbender. Il primo volume, intitolato La Promessa, comincia proprio dove si concludono le avventure animate di Aang.

Avatar, The Last Airbender anche conosciuto come L’ultimo Dominatore dell’Aria è una delle serie di Nickelodeon più amate, che potete recuperare quando volete se disponete di un abbonamento a Netflix. Creata da Michael Dante DiMartino e Bryan Konietzko, narra di un mondo in guerra tra nazioni, ognuna fedele a un elemento. Aang è l’ultimo membro dei monaci dell’aria, scoprirà di essere l’Avatar, la figura a cui spetta il compito di riappacificare le quattro nazioni, in guerra da un secolo, grazie alla sua abilità di padroneggiare tutti e quattro gli elementi.

Come dicevo la serie animata è una delle produzioni di maggior successo di Nickelodeon, tant’è che  ha ricevuto anche un sequel (The Legend of Korra), romanzi tuttora inediti in Italia e perfino un, pessimo,  adattamento cinematografico diretto da M. Night Shyamalan.

Come i romanzi, anche i fumetti editi Dark Horse Comics dedicati al mondo di Aang sono inediti nel nostro paese, fino a quando lo scorso anno Tunué ha annunciato l’arrivo di tutte le graphic novel sotto la collana TipiTondi. Prendiamo quindi una pausa dalla Beach City di Steven Universe e gettiamoci nel sequel diretto delle avventure di Aang, con il primo volume già disponibile a poco meno di 17€.

Ovviamente, mi è impossibile  parlare de La Promessa, senza svelare alcuni degli eventi della serie animata, se siete quindi a digiuno delle avventure di Aang, potete consultare la pratica guida di Tunué ad Avatar, The Last Airbender.

In questo articolo della casa editrice non solo vengono mostrate tutte le prossime uscite, ma ci si concentra anche sul mondo dell’ultimo dominatore dell’aria e su cosa bisogna conoscere per arrivare preparati a questo volume e ai successivi.

Aang, Toph, Zuko, Katara e Sokka stanno viaggiando per le quattro regioni cercando si stabilire il movimento per la restaurazione dell’Armonia, dopo aver posto fine  al terribile impero del signore del fuoco, il padre di Zuko. Proprio il giovane Signore del fuoco, si trova costretto a chiedere ad Aang un’enorme promessa, se dovesse mai diventare come suo padre, l’Avatar dovrà porre fine alla sua vita. Aang accetta riluttante, mentre i fuochi dei festeggiamenti illuminano i cieli attorno a loro. Un anno dopo, Zuko è sopraffatto dai sensi di colpa,  le colonie di fuoco pacifiche stanzianti nel regno della terra, devono essere cacciate per ristabilire l’armonia. Questo significa privare di una casa molteplici famiglie oppure scatenare una nuova guerra. Il fulcro de  La Promessa  è proprio la decisione di Zuko e il tentativo di Aang di farlo ragionare. Chi avrà ragione? Gene Luen Yang raccoglie tutti i personaggi (anche molte delle comparse) e  li fa muovere su un palcoscenico inedito, offrendo ai fan di Avatar un sequel coerente e appassionante.

Luen Yang, affiancato dai creatori originali della serie, si è dimostrato all’altezza del compito di proseguire la storia di Aang e compagni. Anche grazie ai disegni del gruppo Gurihiru, che non si discostano molto dalla produzione animata di Nickelodeon e riescono a trasmettere le stesse atmosfere ed emozioni.

Mentre racconta della trama principale con il conflitto tra Aang e Zuko, Luen Yang  non perde di vista i comprimari dell’Avatar, altro grande punto di  forza della produzione Nickelodeon. Lo fa con delle sotto-trame all’apparenza banali ma che  servono a mettere ulteriori tasselli alla caratterizzazione del cast.

Questa serie di graphic novel è l’occasione ideale per colmare il vuoto sia nella timeline delle due saghe animate, sia dell’assenza di nuove avventure  per i dominatori degli elementi. Un plauso a Tunué per l’edizione sopraffina con cui, a poco meno di diciassette euro, propone 225 pagine tutte a colori in un volume dalla copertina semirigida,  qualcosa da cui le altre case editrici potrebbero (e dovrebbero) imparare.

Michael Dante DiMartino Hosts Virtual ‘Avatar the Last Airbender’ Lecture for Associated Student Programs Board

On Wednesday, Feb. 24, the Associated Student Programs Board (ASPB) presented a virtual lecture hosted by Michael Dante DiMartino, the co-creator of Nickelodeon's beloved animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.

Source: Pixy.

DiMartino is best known for his work in animation, writing and directing. Ever since Avatar: The Last Airbender received heaps of praise from audiences around the world, DiMartino has helped publish books and graphic novels about the Avatarverse. Outside of the Avatar: The Last Airbender universe, DiMartino has also written the Geniuses series, fantasy novels that explore the power of artists.

Before the lecture, DiMartino announced on his social media pages that he and Bryan Konietzko - who DiMartino co-created Avatar with - are returning to Nickelodeon “as co-chief creative officers of Avatar Studios to develop new animated projects in the Avatarverse and oversee the franchise.” The promise of more Avatarverse content was great news for fans of the show. During the lecture, DiMartino expressed his excitement about working on more Avatar: The Last Airbender projects before moving onto the presentation he had created for the night.

DiMartino’s presentation illustrated the process of creating an animated scene. For the lecture, he chose a short clip from Season two Episode 10 of Legend of Korra where the characters traveled to the spirit world. “When I started in animation, storyboarding was the first job I got,” stated DiMartino. Throughout his presentation, he taught the audience that storyboarding consisted of rough sketches of an episode to show the general movements of the characters and the angles of each shot. Every minute of an animated episode was the result of a lot of time and work put in by the animation team.

After DiMartino’s breakdown of the animation process, he began to answer questions that students asked on social media. In this portion, he revealed that he was always interested in animation growing up. He recalled a time when his teacher caught him drawing in class. Instead of being reprimanded, the teacher encouraged him to make stories for the characters he drew. Some of his biggest inspirations for his work came from Hayao Miyazaki’s films. DiMartino stated that “there was something about the way (Miyazaki) does movement and these little moments of nature” that helped develop the art style that was used for Avatar: The Last Airbender.

The lecture then shifted to the live Q&A session where students who attended the event could have a one-on-one conversation with DiMartino. In this session, DiMartino revealed that Toph was one of his favorite characters to draw. He liked the way a lot of her character was revealed through her stance and the way she styled her hair to fall over her eyes. Maya Currie asked him, “If you could put yourself as a character in the Avatar universe, who would you be?” DiMartino said that he would like to be a monk in the air temples or a cabbage merchant if he entered the universe as a non-bender. 

The last question was asked by Jade de Perio who wanted to know what animal in the Avatarverse DiMartino would like to own as a pet. DiMartino stated that he would probably choose Pabu, a fire ferret from Legend of Korra that had features resembling a red panda and a ferret.

DiMartino stated that the most meaningful moment of working on the Avatarverse was seeing “the way the show has touched people in different ways.” Throughout his involvement in the creation of the Avatarverse, DiMartino and his colleagues have worked to be respectful of all the different cultures they drew inspiration from. The wide support the show still maintains is a testimony to their amazing work.

The event included giveaways for various Avatar: The Last Airbender themed prizes, such as an Appa plushie and a graphic T-shirt. The ASPB also gave away an iPad, Apple Pencil and a Procreate subscription as part of a social media drawing contest. The ASPB is holding their 35th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, March 5.

Jennifer Garner Shows Love to 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' with Surprise Cosplays

Jennifer Garner is one of Hollywood's most beloved actors, and she kept busy with work since her debut in the late 1990s. As you can imagine, the starlet likes to keep a low profile despite her A-list status, but she does give fans the occasional peek into her life through social media. And now, her most recent post has informed the world of her love for Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Taking to Instagram, Garner posted a heartfelt post remembering the last year spent in lockdown. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced billions to isolate themselves at home, and Garner is no different. As the one-year anniversary of lockdown looms, Garner says she has celebrated birthdays for all her loved ones, and she posted a short video showing how the at-home parties were celebrated.

As it turns out, one of the parties involved Garner cosplaying for Avatar. The video begins with the actor dressed up as the iconic Cabbage Merchant from Nickelodeon's critically acclaimed series. The actor is shown hugging several heads of lettuce much like the merchant, so she definitely got into character for the gig.

The video ends with Garner in a very different cosplay. The actor is shown running down a hallway while dressed as Korra, the Avatar who came after Aang. Garner is dressed in the heroine's Water Tribe garb, and the blue outfit definitely works for the actor.

Clearly, Garner has a thing for Avatar, and fans are curious how these looks fit into a birthday party at her home. Avatar has seen a major comeback this past year thanks to its big move to Netflix. The show was ranked as one of the streamer's most-watched series in 2020, so it is entirely possible Garner stumbled upon the show there. And with three children under her care, we can only hope Avatar marathons helped keep the family entertained during quarantine!

What do you think about Garner's surprise tribute? Which of the Avatar looks do you like best? Share your thoughts with me in the comments section below!

ICYMI, you can now play as the Cabbage Man in his brand new Avatar: The Last Airbender board game!

Kenan Thompson Channels Iconic 'All That' Character Pierre Escargot for 2021 Golden Globes Skit

Fans of '90s Nickelodeon were given a huge gift during the 2021 Golden Globes!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is still ongoing across the world, the 2021 Golden Globes — hosted by Parks and Recreation's Amy Poehler and 30 Rock's Tina Fey — took place on both the East and West Coast simultaneously, with Poehler leading the festivities at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles and Fey manning the New York party at the Rainbow Room.

With the celebrity nominees and presenters largely confined to their respective homes on either coast, save for a few presenters who appeared at either the Rainbow Room or the Beverly Hilton, the audiences on both coasts were filled with (socially distanced and masked) essential workers and first responders. However, in Los Angeles, there were two audience members who played a special role in the proceedings: Kenan Thompson and Maya Rudolph.

Alongside Poehler, their former late-night colleague, the two Saturday Night Live standouts took the stage to accept a fake award for "Least Original Song" in an effort to recreate a famously messy example of a Golden Globes speech. Here's how Kenan Thompson's performance at the 2021 Golden Globes echoed one of his best Nickelodeon roles.

As Poehler announced the fake award, Rudolph and Thomspon took the stage as Beverly Jackfruit and Francois Jean Rudy, respectively, ready to accept their award for their (definitely not real) theme song for Netflix's The Crown. As Rudolph's Beverly handed Poehler three loose shoes and the two sing their blatantly fake theme, some '90s kids might have been reminded of one of Thompson's fan-favorite characters from his very first sketch show, Nickelodeon's All That.

If you were a fan of All That in the '90s, you probably remember Thompson's recurring character Pierre Escargot from "Everyday French," who spent his time in a yellow raincoat relaxing in a bathtub with the (fake) Eiffel Tower prominently displayed in the background. At the 2021 Golden Globes, Thompson's Francois Jean Rudy spent plenty of time jabbering in fake, nonsense French, and certainly, he trained for this opportunity by playing Pierre Escargot in the 1990s and early 2000s. Anyone who watched and loved All That definitely fondly remembers Pierre Escargot, and it was a welcome return to form to see Thompson "speak French" once again.

Poehler is also a Nickelodeon alum, co-creating and starring in Nickelodeon's animated series The Mighty B! in 2008.

Kenan is set to return to his Nickelodeon roots when he hosts Kids' Choice Awards 2021, airing live on Saturday, March 13 from 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT), simulcast across Nickelodeon, TeenNick, Nicktoons and the Nick Jr. channel. Fans can also catch Kenan on his brand new self-titled NBC sitcom, as well as on Saturday Night Live, in which he's currently the longest-serviing cast member in the show's history. In 2019, Kenan reunited with his former Nick co-star Kel Mitchell (All That, Kenan & Kel, Good Burger) to executive produce Nickelodeon's All That revival.

Maya Rudolph will co-host SNL on Saturday, March 27, 2021.

‘iCarly’ Reboot: Nathan Kress Teases Paramount Plus Revival ‘Is for Adults’

What will the iCarly revival have in store for fans of the hit series? One of the show’s stars, Nathan Kress, gave some details about what the iCarly reboot will be about, promising some “surprises” and a shift to more adult storylines.

What is the iCarly reboot about?

Since the iCarly reboot was announced, fans have wondered what will happen on the show, especially since one of the stars, Jennette McCurdy, isn’t returning for the show.

Nathan Kress, who played Freddie Benson on iCarly, shared some details about the revival (well, as much as he could say without spoiling it) when he chatted on his RadioActive Dads podcast with co-host Brett Davern.

It was difficult for Kress to reveal too much but he did tease a more “adult” shift that will appeal to the fans who grew up watching the show. Basically, the show is going to age appropriately for the characters and the audience, rather than remaining a kids show.

“The whole concept of this show — and that’s why I don’t even know if they necessarily agree with calling it a reboot — because it’s not just doing the same thing over again,” Kress confirmed.

iCarly grows up with the reboot

Kress shared the reason why the iCarly reboot will catch up with the characters at their current ages. “The whole point is this is a show that is geared toward the people who watched iCarly who were kids from 2007 to 2012, who are now adults … it’s a show for them,” he explained.

Kress continued, “The whole point is for them to be able to follow along with the narrative and the storyline and not have to watch a kids’ show in order to do it.”

He confirmed, “It’s about us … [fans] want to be able to follow the story. We want it to be relatable to what’s happening now to the age range of people who watched it when we were young.”

“And I think that that’s going to be something really special to show that everybody’s sort of in the trenches in this phase of life and I think there’s going to be hopefully a catharsis,” Kress added.

There are some surprises in store

Davern asked if Kress had any intel about the characters and the iCarly star was hesitant to reveal too much. “Yes … And that part I’m absolutely positive I can’t talk about,” he shared.

“All I can say is there are big — at least in its current iteration — there are big life things that have happened and I think that’s vital to show that these people are in a very different place from where they were when they were teenagers,’ Kress explained.

When asked if he thinks there will be surprises, Kress could only reveal, “I mean, yes. I think so.”

He was also asked if he thinks “people will be a little bit shocked” by the reboot’s storylines and explained, “Yes. I think … some interesting stuff happens to Freddie in his life.”

He continued, “I hope people just, the one thing that I want them to get out of this is it’s gonna be different. And when I say it’s for adults, that does not mean kids can’t watch it … it’s just that it’s not geared towards children.”

He clarified, “It’s for adults now. In that way, it’s kind of fun … I think people can rest assured that it’s going to be pretty different while still staying true to the core of who it is and the core of where the characters are.”

Classic episodes of iCarly are available to stream on Paramount+ and Netflix today, and the revival is expected to premiere later this year on Paramount+!

iCarly: Nathan Kress Shares His Thoughts About Why Jennette McCurdy Won't Be Doing the Revival

Is Jennette McCurdy going to be on the iCarly revival? While Sam on iCarly was an integral part of the mix on the hit Nickelodeon show, McCurdy reportedly is not returning for the show’s reboot. Nathan Kress, who played Freddie, Sam's love interest on iCarly, shared why he thinks McCurdy isn’t doing the iCarly reboot and swears there’s nothing “nefarious” about her decision.

During the Feb. 8 episode of the RadioActive Dads podcast, Kress and his co-host discussed reasons why McCurdy wouldn’t return for the iCarly revival.

The co-hosts chatted about doing stunts and Kress recalled how he got to do physical comedy on the Nick show. “When we were doing iCarly, I had to take a decent amount of falls. It was a lot of abuse from Sam,” he explained, noting that it was “low level, kind of pratfall type stuff or getting hit with stuff and those weren’t so bad.”

That discussion opened up a conversation about whether McCurdy would be returning to the show.

“As it currently stands, as everybody knows, it doesn’t look like Jennette’s gonna be in the reboot of the show, at least for the first season,” Kress shared. “Maybe that changes, hopefully. We’d love her to come back. If there’s no one there to abuse me, maybe I won’t be taking as many of those hits and falls, which I’m a little bit relieved about.”

Kress said he worried if his “old man body” could “stand up to all the abuse” that he endured back in the day.

Why is Jennette McCurdy not coming back to iCarly?

Kress’ co-host asked the question on everyone’s minds: “Why is Jennette not coming back to iCarly?” and the actor didn’t have an absolute answer but plenty of thoughts on the matter.

“I don’t think anyone totally knows. I know there’s a lot of theories,” Kress answered. “I don’t personally know exactly. I talked with her a little bit. I think it’s just a personal decision and where she’s at and what she wants to do.”

“I think her focus has generally been on content creation, doing like her podcast that’s doing really well and writing, directing, producing,” he continued. “It seems like that’s just where her focus is. And I think — this is speculating too — but because she already did a spin-off series doing Sam & Cat, she might also feel like she got 60, 70 more episodes than we did as our characters and maybe she just feels like her character is complete.”

“She is where she is. She did it for long enough that now she gets to say, ‘I just would rather do other stuff.’ That could be part of it,” he added.

iCarly fans shouldn’t read into it too much

Kress said he understands and respects his former co-star, adding, “What I do hope that people know and trust in the process is that … the only thing I know for sure is it’s not anything nefarious. It’s not some weird, she’s angry about something or we’re angry at her about something… it’s all good-natured stuff.”

He added that McCurdy has been supportive of her co-stars for doing the reboot. “There’s not some kind of grand conspiracy, there’s nothing for people to find on the internet, there are no clues in tweets. It’s not anything like that,” he assured.

Classic episodes of iCarly are available to stream on Paramount+ and Netflix today, and the revival is expected to premiere later this year on Paramount+!
