The movie came from the American animated television series that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon and the Nicktoons Network. It is set in an Asian-influenced world in collaboration with the elemental manipulation and Chinese martial arts. It focuses the adventures of Aang who has been known to be the Last Airbender and his friends in their quest to save the world and defeat the evil Fire Lord and ending the war of the Fire Nation.
Th cartoon has been followed by a lot of people even beyond their 6-11 years old target viewers. Now the cartoon series would hit the big screen as a movie directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Instead of using the same title of the cartoon series, they changed it to The Last Airbender because it might be confused with James Cameron’s Avatar. Aang would be played Noah Ringer, Dev Patel as Zuko, Jackson Rathbone as Sokka, and Nicola Peltz as Katara. Iroh will be played by Shaun Toub and Firelord Ozai by Cliff Curtis.
