Avatar Fan and Tennis Pro Serena Williams and WWE Wrestler Mick Foley Guest Star in Avatar: The Last Airbender's Hour-Long TV Movie

Nickelodeon's hit series Avatar: The Last Airbender invades television screens with a new one-hour TV movie "Day of Black Sun" on Friday, Nov. 30 from 8 to 9 p.m. (ET/PT). The epic third season of the series from creators Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko continues as Aang and his rag-tag crew launch their massive attack on the Fire Nation during the solar eclipse. This special television event features the guest voices of Avatar fan and tennis pro Serena Williams as Ming (Uncle Iroh's guard) and WWE wrestler Mick Foley as The Boulder.

The epic story of Avatar: The Last Airbender follows the journey of Aang (Zach Tyler Eisen), a young boy torn between fulfilling his fate as the long- awaited Avatar and just wanting to be a regular kid. Aang is called upon to lead the fight against the vicious Fire Nation to restore balance in his war- torn world. Aided by a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara (Mae Whitman) and her bull-headed warrior brother Sokka (Jack DeSena), Aang proceeds on a perilous journey to save the world while sometimes shaking off his heavy responsibilities so that he can enjoy being a kid.
