The Last Airbender Comes to the Big Screen

M. Night Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender" will now be seen on the wide screen come July 2010. It is a live action fantasy film adaptation of the first season of the Emmy-winning animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender. The movie is the first film in the planned The Last Airbender trilogy. It will be marketed and released by Paramount Pictures, and Nickelodeon Movies. The series, influenced by Asian art, mythology, and various martial arts fighting styles, was created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. Adapted, directed, and produced by M. Night Shyamalan, the film will star Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, and Dev Patel.

In a world where the four elements can be controlled by people known as "Benders", the Fire Nation is waging a ruthless, oppressive war to control the other great nations. The only hope for stopping the brutal war led by the Firebenders rests on the shoulders of a reluctant young boy named Aang (Noah Ringer). The last known survivor of the peaceful Air Nomads and the Airbenders, Aang is the "Avatar". The "Avatar" is the physical re-incarnation of the world spirit, with the power to manipulate all four elements and draw upon the power, knowledge, and experiences of the Avatar's previous incarnations. The Avatar is responsible for maintaining balance between the four nations of the world and the spirit world, hence keeping the balance of the world. Aided by a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara (Nicola Peltz) and her bull-headed brother Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), Aang begins a perilous journey to restore balance to their war-torn world. Standing in their way are Fire Nation Admiral Zhao (Aasif Mandvi) and Prince Zuko (Dev Patel), the banished prince of the Fire Nation who seeks to capture the young Avatar to regain his honor.

Jackson Rathbone (Twilight’s Jasper Hale) as Sokka, a 15-year-old warrior of the South Pole’s Southern Water Tribe.

Nicola Peltz (Deck the Halls) as Sokka’s fourteen-year-old sister Katara.

Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) as Zuko, the 16-year-old exiled prince of the Fire Nation.
