In 2007, Nickelodeon announced they’d have M. Night Shyamalan write, direct and produce a trilogy based on the T.V. series “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” Unfortunately, due to copyright issues the movie is simply called “The Last Airbender.” The teaser trailer for the first movie came out with Transformers 2 (which according to critics was an abomination), so I’ve gone ahead and shoved it in here for you. Yes, I know. You’re welcome.
Apparently there’s been some kind of controversy about the whole cast being of the Caucasian persuasion, with some fans accusing the creators of being racist. I’m not going to say those people are just looking for something to whine about… but they are.
Also, Mr. Shyamalan says the whole thing stemmed from his daughter dressed up as Kataraa for Halloween, and that got him interested in the show in the first place. Which is awesome.
