Aww, they couldn't have Katara's hair loopy thingys? aren't they suppose to be like a family thing or something?
Doesn't look that bad though. I was expecting worse.
Another TV spot, and if my eyes weren't playing tricks on me...I think I saw Roku:
No offense dude, but if cloesly follow the movie you'd find several picures of Noaang smileing

And they said, "This is like 10 hours long. You have to cut stuff." And I thought, "I can't. I love everything." The first outline was so long that â€” you know, I'll give you an example. You know the bounty hunter? I love that! I thought, "I'm getting her in here I have to." And I just couldn't fit her in. In an episodic series, the nature is that it's episodic. You need to have a beginning, middle and end in each episode. It needs to go "right, left, right, left," like that. But there's a through-line that's present in most of the episodes â€” like he has to master all the elements, those kind of things. Someone's chasing him. Katara and her brother are becoming like a family and they're protecting him, and they're moving to the Northern Border Tribe. Broad things like that, that represent the story of the first season. So there's a bunch of things that had to get jettisoned for this movie.
"The Air Nomads look to be a combination of asia's many monk-like cultures, from Shaolin to Tibet to India. The inclusion of Indian culture is something that wasn't highlighted much in the show despite talk of Chakras, Avatars, and countless Buddhist references. They've detached themselves from the world and its many concerns, physically and mentally, and live a care-free life. Compared to the show, the Air Nomads actually look much closer to the Tibetan and Shaolin cultures they were based off of, while adding in a new Indian cultural influence"
"The South Tribe is based primarily on Inuit culture and the outlook of survival."
"While the North Tribe is based mostly on Europe and the pursuit of grand art. The two cultures are vastly different and show how much one tribe has been affected by the war while the other has remained strong and safe. The cultural changes are minimal when compared to the original show.
"the Fire Nation Military has the spirit of Qin Dynasty China, the technology of the early 20th Century Wars, and a hint of modern-day designs. It's an odd mixture, but it's a fantasy world. The other cultural aspects of the Fire Nation like their day-to-day clothing and architecture probably aren't going to be featured until the third movie when the gAang gets to the homeland."
can be black. Even though Spider-man has had tons of comics, 4 cartoons, and 3 movies with him white. The power rangers who are less iconic, and have not even been around half the time spider-man has can keep their race. I think you're being very hypocritical, and I think you don't understand the process of making a movie ADAPTATION and how things will be changed just because there is only so much time. Also M.night has had the script approved by the creators, and they are also producers on the movie and have visited the set before as confirmed by another producer: http://twitter.com/LeDoctor/status/1738536767"don't even show face"
1. This movie was cast looking for the best actors for the parts. No one was singled out and everyone had their chance.
2. Their are only so many things you can put in a movie based on a series like this. And since you also have to take into account that little kids will be watching this, you need to be able to keep their attention.
3. I have also read the novelization you don't need the feminism to make strong female characters. Especially when it comes at the cost of making your main characters unlikable (sokka, and Master Pakku).Also do you know how episodic season one is there are plenty of episodes that are unnecessary. Also I would also like to remind you that certain episode plot points, and characters have been moved to other movies to save time and create a better pace. And if M.night had put in every episode like you are suggesting this movie would be 10 hours long. You wanna know why he already tried:Found here: http://io9.com/5504967/shyamalan-addresses-airbenders-race-controversy-and-answers-your-questions
4. The Asian influences are still in the movies all the bending is based of the same martial arts in the show, and the nations are designed with asian influences too as shown here: http://www.lastairbenderfans.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2631
5.These are what make up the movie version of the nations.
Air nomads: All mixed raced because of their nomadic background.
SWT: Inuit except Sokka and Katara who's background comes more from the Nwt.
Earth Kingdom: All Asian with some African. There hasn't been much shown of the earth kingdom except for some villages. So I can't really say what the culture is gonna primarily be based off of, but I assume it will be an Asian culture.
Fire nation: Made up of Indian, middle eastern Maori etc...
So you don't believe in color blind casting, but you think it's wrong for the PR casting sheets to look for a specific race. But at the same time if MMPR were to be remade you want them to keep their race like in the show, but if it's spider-man, who like the Power rangers, can be black. Even though Spider-man has had tons of comics, 4 cartoons, and 3 movies with him white. The power rangers who are less iconic, and have not even been around half the time spider-man has can keep their race. I think you're being very hypocritical, and I think you don't understand the process of making a movie ADAPTATION and how things will be changed just because there is only so much time. Also M.night has had the script approved by the creators, and they are also producers on the movie and have visited the set before as confirmed by another producer: http://twitter.com/LeDoctor/status/1738536767
And one more thing I don't see how you could possibly think this movie is dark and depressing. Did you not see that Tv spot with momo and Sokka getting frozen.
