In M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Last Airbender,” The Fire Nation is waging a ruthless, oppressive war against the other three nations. The film’s hero, the reluctant young Aang (Noah Ringer), is the “Last Airbender” — the Avatar who, according to prophecy, has the ability to manipulate all of the elements and bring all the nations together. Aided by a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara (Nicola Peltz) and her bull-headed brother Sokka, Aang proceeds on a perilous journey to restore balance to their war torn world. Jackson Rathbone plays Katara’s brother Sokka, and Dev Patel plays Prince Zuko, prince of the Fire Nation. Aasif Mandvi plays the role of Commander Zhao, an ambitious and hot-tempered Fire Nation commander. Shaun Toub is Uncle Iroh, the retired Fire Nation general and devoted surrogate parent to Dev Patel’s character Zuko. Cliff Curtis plays the ruthless ruler Fire Lord Ozai. Keong Sim stars in the role of Earthbending Father.
“The Last Airbender” movie is an adaptation of Nickelodeon’s “Avatar: The Last Airbender” which follows the adventures of the successor to a long line of Avatars who must put aside his irresponsible ways and stop the Fire Nation from enslaving the Water, Earth and Air nations. Paramount Pictures dropped from the title to avoid confusion with James Cameron’s – the biggest movie ever in the history of movies at the movie box office.
