Avatar: The Last Airbender – Everything You Needs To know about the Movie

An interesting watch.
CGI is very beautiful, cinematography, setup, costumes, all beautiful.
The acting is nice too. I absolutely loved Iroh.

They did a pretty good job. It has that hook that’ll keep you interested and urge to click on the next episode.

However, for someone who has watched the animé countless times, this live-action was just okay.
The characters weren’t all that for me. Aang lost his humor and childlike attributes, Katara’s motherly nature was lost. Sokka’s personality was extremely watered down. Zuko didn’t cut it for me. Azula’s evilness wasn’t glowing, Ty lee was too quiet, Mai was talking too much. (These are just the major acts I looked forward to)

The actors did very well tho but this live-action feels like a grown-up version of themselves instead of the original plot.
A lot of things were rushed and it was obvious

For someone who hasn’t watched the animé, this is brilliant. But for us, we will need to digest it with the animé.

Ps: The bodies of the people from the forest village… Where were they hiding? Cause Sokka and Katara were there physically, so where were the villagers?

Avatar is set in an Asian and Arctic-inspired world in which some people can telekinetically manipulate one of the four elements—water, earth, fire or air—through practices known as “bending”, inspired by Chinese martial arts. The only individual who can bend all four elements, the “Avatar”, is responsible for maintaining harmony among the world’s four nations, and serves as the link between the physical world and the spirit world. The series is centered around the journey of twelve-year-old Aang, the current Avatar and last survivor of his nation, the Air Nomads, along with his friends Katara, Sokka, and Toph, as they strive to end the Fire Nation’s war against the other nations and defeat Fire Lord Ozai before he conquers the world. It also follows the story of Zuko—the exiled prince of the Fire Nation, seeking to restore his lost honor by capturing Aang, accompanied by his uncle Iroh—and later, his sister Azula. Avatar is presented in a style that combines anime with American cartoons and relies on the imagery of primarily Chinese culture, with some other East Asian, Southeast Asian, South Asian, New World, Siberian, and Arctic influences.

Avatar: The Last Airbender was a ratings success and received acclaim from critics for its characters, cultural references, art direction, voice acting, soundtrack, humor, and themes. These include concepts rarely touched on in youth entertainment, including war, genocide, imperialism, totalitarianism, indoctrination and free choice. It won five Annie Awards, a Genesis Award, a Primetime Emmy Award, a Kids’ Choice Award, and a Peabody Award. The show is regarded by many critics as one of the greatest animated television series of all time.

Avatar aired on Nickelodeon for three seasons, from February 2005 to July 2008. The extended Avatar franchise includes an ongoing comics series, a prequel novel series, an animated sequel series, and a live-action film, as well as a live-action remake series produced for Netflix. The complete series was released on Blu-ray in June 2018 in honor of the tenth anniversary of its finale and was made available to stream on Netflix in the United States and Canada in May 2020 on Paramount+ in June 2020, and on Amazon Prime Video in January 2021.
