Netflix Reveals The First Look At Avatar The Last Airbender Live Action Series

At the Netflix Tudum: A Global Fan Event in Brazil, a first look was revealed for the Netflix live action adaption series of Avatar: The Last Airbender. There’s been scarcely any news about it since the last major known news of the confirmed casting of the four main leads in August 2021. This after the original creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko left the production in August 2020 after having differing views and ideas on the direction the Netflix series should go.

Here is the first look video:

Along with the first trailer, Netflix released character photos of each of the four main characters.

Gordon Cormier as Aang
Kiawentiio as Katara
Ian Ousley as Sokka
Dallas Liu as Zuko

Asked what about the series she was most excited for the fans to see, Kiawentiio, who plays Katara, was really excited about the bending and special effects, as well as episode 5 being her favorite and she can’t wait for everyone to see it.

The actor playing Sokka, Ian Ousley described some of his many favorite memories while on filming the series for almost a year. Some favorite moments included haircut day where they got to transform into the characters, as well as getting to hold and unsheathe his boomerang for the first time. And getting to meet his favorite character Oppa, even if he was terrified while flying on him.

Dallas Liu, who plays Zuko, explained how he was not only living his expectations to the supporters but also to himself. Because Zuko spent most of his journey accompanied by Uncle Iroh, Liu spent almost every day on set with Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, who plays his uncle. He learned so much from Lee that to him, Liu sees Lee as just like his character Uncle Iroh.

Asked what it means to participate in this story and to be the Avatar character Aang, Gordon Cormier said “I feel like it’s going to bring everything you know and love about the original series back to life, and hopefully just bring in a bunch of new fans who have never heard of the show before into this universe. And to me that’s pretty exciting. I’m a fan of the show personally and I’m just excited for this as you guys are.”

The Avatar: The Last Airbender segment begins at 1:52:13

Given what we’ve heard in the past about the story possibly taking place in modern day times, the photos seem to contradict that idea, as they look like it takes place in the time period you see in the animated series.
