Positive feedback from early viewers has been highlighted in the final trailer for Netflix's ambitious live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series. The debut of the series tonight, at midnight.

Based on the teaser below, do you think Netflix has found its next big, must-watch obsession? The first season of the show will premiere with all eight episodes on February 22, 2024.


Netflix's live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender stars Gordon Cormier as Avatar Aang, Kiawentiio as Katara and Ian Ousley as Sokka. 

The show also stars Dallas Liu (PEN15) as Prince Zuko, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee (Kim's Convenience, The Mandalorian) as Uncle Iroh, Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-0, Lost) as Fire Lord Ozai, Ken Leung (Inhumans, The Blacklist) as Commander Zhao, and Elizabeth Yu  (Somewhere in Queens)as Princess Azula.

Actor Ken Leung, who plays Commander Zhao in the show, was interviewed by Deadline during last week's world premiere in LA at The Egyptian Theatre Hollywood. The actor discloses that when he first learned about the opportunity, he thought he was auditioning for a role in James Cameron's Avatar films.

The official synopsis from Netflix reads, "Water, Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony - then everything changed. A live-action adaptation Aang's story.

The four nations once lived in harmony, with the Avatar, master of all four elements, keeping peace between them. But everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked and wiped out the Air Nomads, the first step taken by the firebenders towards conquering the world. With the current incarnation of the Avatar yet to emerge, the world has lost hope.

But like a light in the darkness, hope springs forth when Aang, a young Air Nomad — and the last of his kind — reawakens to take his rightful place as the next Avatar. Alongside his newfound friends Sokka and Katara, siblings and members of the Southern Water Tribe, Aang embarks on a fantastical, action-packed quest to save the world and fight back against the fearsome onslaught of Fire Lord Ozai. But with a driven Crown Prince Zuko determined to capture them, it won’t be an easy task. They’ll need the help of the many allies and colorful characters they meet along the way."

@MyCoolYoung - And they said that they want this to appeal to Game of Thrones fans. It’s weird that they would associate an adult oriented grimdark Europe based fantasy show with a kid oriented lighthearted Asia based fantasy show.

@MyCoolYoung - I heard about that

We’ll see about Sokka but the creators were at the premeire which gives me some hope

Also , they are still using some of their ideas since they are credited as writers for 2 out of the 8 episodes in S1.

@mountainman - wait what.. when did they say that? I hope they not trying to give it a dark gritty makeover
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 2/21/2024, 7:25 PM
@MyCoolYoung - the energy of the show does seem a bit muted compared to the animation but it does more serious atleast then the that aswell.

We have seen some of the light & comedic moments in the trailers so I hope there’s more of that there (or atleast a good balance)
MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/21/2024, 7:26 PM
@TheVisionary25 - we’ll see. You’re always a beacon of hope and optimism.

MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/21/2024, 7:27 PM
@TheVisionary25 - I think finding that balance is important. I just hope they keep what made it good. These characters grew so much over the books. We don’t need sokka to be complete from day 1. Let him grow into himself

@MyCoolYoung - The same week as the troubling comments about the changes to Sokka’s character arc.

https://www.gamesradar.com/avatar-the-last-airbender-netflix-game-of-thrones-fans/

As someone that loves both, I don’t want Avatar made dark and gritty. There are dark moments for sure, but it is ultimately a story about kids growing up.

@MyCoolYoung - I've seen a lot of mixed reactions out of the first episode premiere. Sounds like Zuko and Iroh kinda suck and are the worst change of the series in regards to their personalities and interactions.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 2/21/2024, 8:07 PM
@MyCoolYoung - agreed

Apparently , they have said Sokka’s arc of coming into his own as a warrior and strategist is still there so that’s good atleast

Hope it’s done well.

@MyCoolYoung - The first 20 mins is the Air Temple genocide that was never shown in the animated show. And I've read it's VERY dark.
MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/22/2024, 1:19 AM
@McMurdo - if that's true that's a big one. In my opinion, Iroh and Zuko have the best arc/relationship and it seems like the easiest to translate. That's really a downer if true
MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/22/2024, 1:21 AM
@McMurdo - I'm cool with that kinda dark. We probably don't need to see it, but it can add to how ruthless the fire nation is. The rest of the show don't need to be That dark

@MyCoolYoung - I don't mind them changing Sokka's mannerisms, because we might get some new comedic moments out of that.

What worries me the most is they said they're taking out the fun side quests, with Aang being set on getting to the Pole immediately instead of him trying to run away from his responsibility (like any teen would)
McMurdo
McMurdo - 2/22/2024, 2:58 AM
@MyCoolYoung - fully agree on Iroh and Zuko. And yes I agree on air temple opener as well. Needs to be heavy to set up the stakes.
MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/22/2024, 11:35 AM
@bkmeijer1 - that too. I think it all went hand to hand. Even with Sokkas immaturity. I feel like they all had a bit of immaturity in some ways. Maybe not Katara because she was thrust in a motherly role early, but it might be some there.
MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/22/2024, 11:35 AM
@McMurdo - agreed. I’ll try to watch some tonight. Let me know what you think when you see it
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 2/22/2024, 11:50 AM
@MyCoolYoung - yeah, but I guess we'll find out. I'll probably give it a go next week
MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/22/2024, 11:44 PM
@bkmeijer1 - I'm on episode 3 so far. Let me know what you think when you finish
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 2/23/2024, 2:05 AM
@MyCoolYoung - I'll try and remember. First I'm gonna have to finish True Detective, so I won't start any earlier than halfway through next week.
MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/23/2024, 8:44 AM
@bkmeijer1 - I have to start that. I heard they tried something different
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 2/23/2024, 10:22 AM
@MyCoolYoung - had the same idea, so that's why I'm watching that first. Knowing myself, I'll probably keep saying "oh, I'll watch [enter show name here] first."

God , I hope this turns out well…

So far , I have liked the footage I have seen (for the most part) so I’m cautiously optimistic!!.

This looks cringe in a lot of places but decent in others

The wardrobe and casting look on point for the most part at least.

It's too bad M.Night couldn't do this justice. Then, on the other hand, I did enjoy what he did; maybe some of the characters were a bit cheesy and the dialogue as well, but it was still entertaining. This will smash it...I hope.

AV Club says "The best thing to say about it is at least they did a better job than Shyamalan." Not great, y'all.
