It’s that time again everybody – Student Activities presents Binge & Banter: Avatar the Last Airbender. Following in the footsteps of our last successful Binge & Banter, the Mandalorian, we will be breaking down the newly re-famed Netflix show, following our favorite Airbender and his friends. No matter if you are from the Fire Nation, one of the Water Tribes, or anywhere in between, mark your calendar for October 20 when we will be discussing your favorite character arcs, episodes, and even some fan theories.
For those of you who haven’t seen the show, Avatar is centered around Aang, the last Air Nomad left on the planet, and his journey of navigating life in a new world around him. Aang, although 12 years old biologically, is technically 112 years old after spending 100 years frozen in ice. He gets frozen during the end of a time of peace, and thaws out to a world of chaos and turmoil as the Fire Nation has changed the world as he knew it.
Aang’s people, the Air Nomad’s, were wiped out by the Fire Nation on their conquest to global domination. As the Avatar, Aang is set on the course to fulfill his destiny of mastering all four elements (water, earth, fire, and air) and bringing balance back to the world. Through this journey, there are so many twists and turns as each character grows and develops into different versions of themselves.
Come with your thoughts and join in on the discussion! There will be fun stickers and snacks as we enjoy discussing one of our favorite shows. We hope to see you there on October 20.
