Dante Basco, who voiced Zuko in the classic Nickelodeon series, announced recently that the voice cast will be getting together on Jan. 9.

"Here’s something to look forward to in 2021! #Avatar Reunion!!! Come hang with the #Gaang!" he shared on Instagram.

Many other main cast members will be participating in the 30-minute event, during which they will "discuss the Emmy award-winning show and how it still holds a special place in animation history even 15 years later." Tickets are $10.

Grey Griffin (Azula), Jack De Sena (Sokka), Jennie Kwan (Suki), Olivia Hack (Ty Lee), Cricket Leigh (Mai), and Michaela Murphy (Toph) have all been announced as participants, with more to be revealed. Zachary Tyler Eisen, who voiced Aang, and Mae Whitman, who voiced Katara, have not been slated to participate, but Whitman was tagged by Basco in the Instagram post so ... fingers crossed?

While ATLA ended in 2008, its legacy has continued thanks to streaming, especially as Netflix added the series and its sequel The Legend of Korra to its library last year. The streamer's own live-action adaptation of the animated show hit a snag in August when the original creators departed the project over creative differences. The adaptation is still slated to happen, but in the meantime, ATLA fans will cling to any and all developments, like the reunion, a new comic, and the official Last Airbender cookbook.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
