Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action will have a live-action adaptation…. The last the time we have one….. We have this unwatchable and racist abomination.
Avatar: The Last Airbender ‘s Netflix live-action got fans on the tip of their toes. Asian Americans who are longing for representation felt betrayed by one of their own. (M. Night Shyamalan is of Indian descent) The lead protagonists are mostly played by Caucasian actors and the villains from the Fire nation are mostly played by South Asian actors. Shyamalan said he goes with this cast because he wanted to have the best actors for the role. Speaking of acting, One of the most criticized elements of this movie is the horrid acting. Only Dev Patel has the acting prowess on this film. I am glad that his career recovered from this. Fans some many reasons to hate this film but this video can explain it better:
Netflix Promised to fix the mistakes Paramount Studios and Shyamalan made. A live-action Adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender is in development. They promised to cast actors of Asian and Native American descent actors. No more white people with yellowface makeup. Fans are almost cooling their jets when there are rumors that made fans unhappy. There was a rumor last year that the characters will be aged up so the series can have romance and sex. That rumors also have a backlash. Here is one of the angry tweets about it:
What is wrong with Netflix?
Why are they trying to age up the Avatar CHILDREN so that they can sexualize them?

Twitter also raged when there are rumors that Katara and Sokka’s ages will be swapped so Katara can have a romance with Zuko. Now fans can calm down because the rumors are wrong. The characters will not be aged nor swap ages. These are the revealed ages of the characters on the upcoming live-action series. Yes, it is a series and not a movie. Let’s hope Avatar’s legacy will be redeemed by this adaptation.
Netflix's live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender character ages confirmed
Aang – 12
Katara – 14
Sokka – 16
Zuko – 17
