Set on the earth of H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds, War of the Worlds: Goliath is an interesting venture in alternate history. It takes the idea of an earth that is invaded by Martians in 1899 and then fast-forwards fifteen years to 1914.
From April 17th through May 21st Peter and Connor will be in 24 different locations all the way from Victoria, British Columbia to Halifax, Nova Scotia, putting on at least 29 different special Last Unicorn screenings — and maybe more, if enough of Peter’s Canadian fans get the word and buy tickets.
This show follows Korra, the teenaged Avatar, as she comes into her full powers and gets trained in how to actually use them, as well as how to be the Avatar. Of course, things don’t go smoothly and there are conspiracies to thwart, intrigues and mysteries to solve, lots of martial arts and element “bending”, action, and romance.
