Do you remember meeting Aang for the first time? It has been 15 years since the Avatar was introduced to the world, and his debut wowed fans and critics alike. After all of these years, Avatar: The Last Airbender remains one of the most beloved animated series to date, and it plans to celebrate its anniversary in a big way.

Thanks to Nickelodeon, ComicBook.com is able to exclusively reveal an upcoming steelbook collection for Avatar: The Last Airbender. The complete series will come to Blu-ray once more on February 18, 2020. Currently, the steelbook is slated to contain three books which feature unique artwork by Caleb Thomas which form a gorgeous triptych.

"The 3-book collection features stunning new artwork by artist Caleb Thomas, with each book featuring a different element (Water, Earth, and Fire) and the covers combining to form a beautiful triptych. Thomas was handpicked to design the collection's covers after series co-creator Bryan Konietzko became a fan of Thomas' art style on social media," Nickelodeon confirmed.
