Netflix just shattered the bending barrier with the release of the full trailer for its live-action rendition of Nickelodeon’s animated masterpiece, “Avatar: The Last Airbender“. Brace yourself for an eight-episode binge, premiering Feb. 22. Gordon Cormier takes the reins as Aang, the Avatar tasked with mastering water, earth, fire, and air to thwart the Fire Nation’s world-threatening agenda. Get ready for a fantastical journey, accompanied by siblings Sokka (Ian Ousley) and Katara (Kiawentiio), hailing from the Southern Water Tribe.
I’m extremely excited about this project and I love what I’m seeing in this trailer. I am a huge fan of the franchise and I hold it in very high regard. According to the official logline, Aang and his newfound crew are on a high-stakes quest against the formidable Fire Lord Ozai. The catch? Crown Prince Zuko, played by Dallas Liu, is hot on their heels.
The star-studded cast includes Daniel Dae Kim as Fire Lord Ozai, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as General Iroh, and a slew of other talents.
