Here’s a first look at Aang from the upcoming live action Avatar: The Last Airbender movie. Looks like they’ve done a good job staying true to the animated series.
In the series, Aang is the last of his kind, a race of Airbenders who can manipulate the air around him. With the help of his friends, he must save the world by defeating the Fire Lord and end the war with the Fire Nation.
Avatar blends Asian and Western cultures, and is a unique combination of Eastern anime and American cartoons. Let’s hope the live action movie does it justice! M. Night Shyamalan is writing, directing and producing the movie, scheduled for release in July, 2010.
