|Media type||Graphic Novel|
The series is based off of James Cameron's original screenplay for Avatar 2 before rewrites. The High Ground now serves as a direct prequel to Avatar 2, making it the first Avatar release to cover new content that isn't set during the the first Avatar film (Avatar: Tsu'tey's Path) or in the far future, removed from the events of the Avatar film series (Pandora: The World of Avatar).
The High Ground was initially listed on Amazon, but later removed. The first volume, Advent to War, was listed with a January 23, 2020 release, with Sherri L. Smith adapting the screenplay and art by Guilherme Balbi.
James Cameron's screenplay, "The High Ground," was intended as the first sequel to the biggest blockbuster of all time, Avatar. Discarded in favour of other ideas, the original screenplay is being adapted into a three-part graphic novel series.
It has been almost a decade since the humans were forced to leave Pandora - but now they're returning - with an armada of heavily-armed starships! After years of peace, Jake Sully has settled down with Neytiri and raised a family, so for him, the stakes are even higher than when he first went to war against the corporate might of the RDA.
Adapted for comics by award-winning author Sherri L. Smith (The Toymaker's Apprentice, Orleans, and others), and illustrated by Brazilian artist Guilherme Balbi, Avatar: The High Ground, Volume 1 - Advent to War ventures into all-new territory in the Avatar saga, and is a direct prequel to next year's release of the film Avatar 2!
