You, the fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender, are in for a surprise real soon. Since Netflix, our very beloved streaming platform, is in the progress of releasing a series for the same. The series is said to be a live-action series. So a live-action movie or series is something different from an animated movie or series. Instead of animation, it uses photography. Live-action series or movies make them very personal or dear to the one watching them.
Since the live-action series is a remake of the original series, we can assume that it will most probably follow the same storyline as the original series. The original series was set in a time when the four elements – Air, Water, Fire, and Earth were different nations. And each nation can use its element to manipulate others or use it for their protection, etc. The Avatar is one such person who has the ability and power to manipulate or use all four elements. He is the peacekeeper between all the nations. This manipulation is known as bending using the Chinese Martial arts.
Aang is the Avatar in the series, and he is the only one remaining from the air nation as the king of fire destroyed his remaining nation. He is confronted by Katata and Sokka, who is from the water tribes. Aang joins them both and learns water bending from them to defeat the fire king in the future. He then moves on to learn Earth bending from Toph. Later in the series, it shows how Aang strips the Lord of fire of his powers and defeats him. Zuko, who teaches Aang firebending, is then given the throne of the fire king.
The officials announced the cast for the live-action series. Gordon Cormier will be seen playing the character of Aang. Dallas Liu will be seen playing the character of Zuko. Ian Ousley will be seen playing the character of Sokka. Kiawentiio will be seen playing the character of Katara. Gordon Cormier has previously appeared in the series Lost in Space and The Stand. Dallas Liu has previously appeared in the Underdog Kids and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Ian Ousley has previously appeared in 13 Reasons Why. Kiawentiio has previously appeared in Anne with an E. These actors had previously played supporting roles but are going to be the main lead in this series. Apart from these main characters, there are a few other characters like fire lord Zuko, Fire Lord Ozai, and Uncle Iroh, on whom we do not have information as to who will be heading these roles.
What is the Latest Update Regarding the Release Date and Schedule?
The question about when the live-action series will be released is still unanswered. But according to rumors, it’s said that the production of the series is going to start in November this year, and so we can expect the live-action series to release at the latest by next year’s end. Nothing about the release date is confirmed, but if we keep a gap of one year, we can expect the release of the series by next year. If not by next year, we’ll most probably get to view the series by 2023.
