Avatar Aang… Do we need a better live-action adaptation?

Avatar Aang popularly known as The Last Airbender is an animated television series that was created initially by Michael Dante Dimartino and Bryan Konietzko, with Aaron Ehasz as the head of writing. The popular animated series was meant initially for kids. Therefore, from February 2005 to July 2008 it was aired on Nickelodeon for three seasons.

The best thing about this series is that it was made in America, now due to that the humor they have throughout the series can be fully translated to an English based audience, this with the fact makes it easier for most of the English speaking nations to have an easy time understanding the words they speak without any trouble.
The Setting

Avatar: The Legend of Aang is set in an Asiatic type of world in which most of the cultural beliefs and religion are shown throughout the series. In the series called Avatar, they show out different people who can manipulate the four elements of the world i.e. (Earth, Water, Air, and Fire with some telekinetic variants using some Chinese martial arts that is known as bending.

Third season: Fire.

In the third season, Aang and his allies invade the Fire Nation capital during the solar eclipse but are forced to retreat. Zuko abandons the Fire Nation to join Aang and teach him fire bending. Aang, raised by monks to respect all life, wrestles with the possibility that he will have to kill Ozai to end the war. When Sozin’s comet returns, Aang confronts Ozai and uses his Avatar powers to strip Ozai of his fire bending ability; meanwhile, Aang’s friends liberate Ba Sing Se, destroying the Fire Nation airship fleet, and capture Azula. Zuko crowned as the new Fire Lord and ends the war.


In Conclusion, Avatar: The Legend of Aang has seen its share of critics and praises all around the table. It has received its share of praise for its soundtrack, cultural reference, humor, characters, and themes. My personal favorite is General Iroh of the fire nation: he is wise, patient, very humorous, and loves tea – he is also a powerful fire bender and so much more than what he appears on the surface…
The series explored many concepts rarely touched on in entertainment these include issues relating to war, genocide, imperialism, colonialism, gender discrimination, and female empowerment.
