Trying to stop him and redeem his honor, is Prince Zuko (Slumdog Millionaire's Dev Patel), the exiled prince of the evil Fire Nation.

  • Nice! I've always liked Avatar, it'll be interesting to see it in live action.
  • Isn't this the film that the creator described every plot point in detail on Ubisoft's E3 talk?

    No, that was a movie by I think James Cameron, and it is a completely different property than The Last Airbender.
  • You switched his age. It's 12, not 21.
  • Not a huge fan of the show (it's a fine show), but I am genuinely excited for this.
  • The show was pretty cute while it aired, but I wasn't particularly excited about this film. But they did go in a great direction with it stylistically, looks like they're going for the "epic" feel that I got from the series second season finale.

    I also like that they went with "The Last Airbender" over a movie with "Avatar" in the title. I suppose it was partially a decision made to stop confusion with the other completely unrelated Avatar movie, but "The Last Airbender" just works well.

    Generally I'd say that if I was going to see a martial arts movie, I'd watch an actual martial arts flick rather than the live action adaptation of a cartoon caricature of a martial arts flick. But this looks promising. I might see it.

    Weird choice of director, I must say. Why Shyamalan? I'm not a fan of any of his movies. I suppose he's branching out? Where's the twist? =p

    Thanks for noticing. Fixed.

    Ready for this one? It's a doozy...

    It turns out... that he's actually the SECOND-TO-LAST Airbender!

    And get this... he doesn't really bend air! He bends girders! And Bruce Willis has to swing away at the killer trees so that he can become a ghost in a village that's not as old as you would think by looking at it! And whatever the twist was in "Lady In The Water"! That one too!
  • Wow.......I finally understand everything....
  • I never payed much attention to the show, even though I liked it. But I'm definitely delighted to see this in live action. I think It'll be interesting.
