The long-awaited live-action adaptation of Avatar has recently shared its first teaser.
Avatar: The Last Airbender tells the story of Aang, a young avatar and the last airbender, as he awakens in an unfamiliar world ruled by the Fire Nation. As the avatar, it’s Aang’s duty to master the four elements – Water, Earth, Fire, and Air – through his elemental bending skills. Joined by his friends, Katara, Sokka, and Appa, Aang aims to restore balance to the world and bring an end to the Fire Nation’s unjust rule.
Fans of the original animated series have been apprehensive about the new series, as the previous attempt at a live-action Avatar adaptation was not well received by critics and the general public. It was also reported in 2020 that the original co-creators of Avatar, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, quit the Netflix production due to creative differences.
Amidst speculation and worry, Netflix recently released photos of the Fire Nation and the series’ first trailer, which fueled excitement among fans. Watch the trailer here.
