Has the potential to be cool.

I wonder how close they're going to hold to the characters' original ethnicities.

What does M.Night know about kung fu??
But I suppose he's trying to expand his repertoire.
The main characters had better be kids (not 18 y/o) and they had better not be white.

It'll turn out that the whole thing is taking place in a wildlife reserve in Pennsylvania.

My thoughts exactly. Like, M. Night Salamander is such a random choice for something like Avatar! It's just so…wow.

Agree, that will just make them look out of character, and that's something I don't want to see in a real-life adaption film.

Considering it is a Western cartoon and not an anime, I don't see why they would change it that much. At the very least, ethnicities would remain the same.

I hope they focus on Azula…and pick a hot actor for her. Also i thought it was a troll at first that M.Knight shamalan was doing it, when i found out i thought it was going to suck worse than space chimps.


If it's covering book one i guess we aren't going to get all the questions left on the final episode anyhow -_-

twist is Zutara

Oh yea man I'm super excited for this even though I'm not sure how good it's going to turn out. We'll see!! I hope he chooses some good actors though.

The creators said that he was being so true to the material, the creators themselves were telling him to cut things out. Good sign.

He's going to have to work his butt off when they get to the 3rd movie.

Oh, and Zuko and Azula agni kai + actors = laughable results. They'll need to be seriously in shape, or else there'll be a ton of computer editing.

If by this you mean that the DVDs are cheaper than anime DVDs, then yes. But the production values are higher.
