The cover for The Last Airbender DVD features Aang, Katara, and Zuko.

The DVD/Blu-ray Combo Pack was released on November 16, 2010 from Paramount Home Entertainment of the movie The Last Airbender, the first film of the trilogy based on the series Avatar: The Last Airbender.


The Last Airbender DVD/Blu-ray Combo Pack boasts over two hours of in-depth, behind-the-scenes special features including a nine-part documentary on the making of the film, a featurette entitled "Origins of the Avatar", which documents the creative transformation of the hit animated series to the big screen, picture-in-picture insights from the cast and crew that deconstruct some of the amazing action and visual effects sequences, deleted scenes, outtakes and more. The film also is available as a single disc DVD or single disc Blu-ray, both of which include "Origins of the Avatar", deleted scenes and outtakes.

  • Comprehensive publicity outreach further bolstered by talent support to garner millions of impressions throughout print, TV and online outlets.
  • Promotional partnerships, including DVD instant-win and rebate offers on six million packages of Land O'Frost lunchmeats in the United States.
