The Last Air Bender, History of Earth Nation

The Nickelodeon animated adaptation finally made it's way to the big screen. With the cartoon version having such a large fan base among the younger boys demographic, it goes without saying that The Last Airbender was a much anticipated movie for the summer of 2010.

The question that remains is did this movie live up to its billing? The Last Airbender tells the story of a world that consists of four nations, Earth, Air, Water and Fire and among these nations are 'benders', people that possess supernatural abilities to manipulate the elements of their specific nation. In addition, within the entire world is the 'Avatar'; an individual whose sole responsibility is to maintain peace among the nations. The issue is that he has been missing for 100 years and now he's needed as the Fire Nation has begun to war with the world. The movie opens as Katara (Nicola Pelz) and Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), a brother/sister pair unearth the body of Aang (Noah Ringer) whom was buried under ice while on a previous adventure. As they bring Aang back and prepare to send him home, they are attacked by the Fire Nation and the evil Prince Zuko, a firebender, reveals to Aang that he is the Avatar. With that, Zuko captures Aang and takes him hostage. Being a sorcerer in his own right and the central figure in this theatrical series, it goes without saying that despite his capture, Aang is not down and out.

The Legend of Aang, The Last Airbender, Air Nation

Like any M. Night Shyamalan film, Avatar the Last Airbender Movie deals with an intriguing supernatural plot. The movie is influenced by the arts and mythology of Asia including their different martial arts techniques and styles. Avatar: The Last Airbender is based on the first season of the animated Nickelodeon TV series, Avatar: The Legend of Aang. The movie shows Aang (Noah Ringer), a 12-year old airbender from the Air Nation on his quest to master the water element. Together with a flying bison named Appa (his animal guide), Takara (Nicola Peltz), a Waterbender, and her brother Sokka(Jackson Rathbone), they journey to the North pole to find the only Waterbender master. Their quest is extensive and made lengthier by Aang's incapability to focus and his youthful desire for adventures and fun.

Aang needs to master the four elements: Fire, Water, Air and Earth; in order, to fulfill his destiny in becoming the next Avatar. He alone can defeat the Fire Lord Sozin of the Fire Nation and bring back harmony and balance to the four warring Nations. The movie's focal point is Aang's struggle to survive. Having been frozen in an iceberg for 100 years, he just barely escaped the total destruction of his people, the Air Nomads, by the Fire Lord Sozin to ensure his world domination; thus, making Aang 'The Last Airbender". Sozin realized, after defeating Avatar Roku (a Firebender) that the next Avatar would come from the Air Nation based on the Avatar Cycle. Aang needs to defeat the current Fire Lord Ozai before the summer approaches for it is when his Firebending skills are strongest.

Avatar The Last Airbender State, Katara, Aang, Zuko

Avatar: The Last Airbender (a.k.a Avatar the Legend of Aang) is a digitally animated cartoon that aired for almost three years (i.e., 2005 to 2008) on the Nickelodeon channel. The show itself was originally written and produced by Michael Dante DiMartino and Brian Konietzko. The show takes place in an Asian setting, with a character named "Aang" serving as the hero. Aang and all of the friends whom he meets on his journey must find the "firelord", defeat him, and bring the battle against the Fire Nation to a halt.

Astoundingly, on average, more than five million people tuned in to watch the show each time it aired- it was not only popular with young viewers, but aged critics, parents, young adults, and older teenagers, too. Having been nominated for a variety of awards, Nickelodeon has recently opted to have the creators produce more seasons, and because the show has garnished so much popularity, they are asking for movies to be made based on the show, also. Toys, such as video games, magazines, collectible figures and models, cards, and blocks have emerged from the story's huge success. Thus, the incredible power of this epic tale is influencing the lives of many individuals worldwide, not just young teenagers, and it is paramount to recognize that the Avatar series has been going strongly for over four years.

Avatar Movie Shyamalan Cast

Movie lovers who love the Nickelodeon series will love to watch Avatar The Last Airbender movie. The motion picture if full of adventure, special effects and a great cast including Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire). The plot centers around Aang, who is the last of the many different Avatars sent to save the world against the Fire Nation. Aang is young and a very hesitant leader who wants to remain a kid instead of saving the world. When the young hero sees that the Earth Nation is being vanquished by the Fire Nation, he takes up his role as both leader and liberator. This is where he starts his journey as the true Avatar. No story would be a good story without the antagonist. In this case Dev Patel plays Prince Prince Zuko of the Fire Nation, who cannot return home until he captures and surrenders Aang to the leader of this nation.

The motion picture was released on July 1, 2010 in the United States of America. It is a good idea to watch Avatar the Last Airbender Movie with the whole family. The movie has been rated PG, because it has some scenes of mild violence. However, the story has a good message of responsibility that can help younger viewers learn that it is important to work as part of a community. The motion picture failed to reach number one at the box office, but it was well reviewed. Most people liked the fact that the it was close enough to the series. There are rumors that a sequel is to follow. The cartoon is broken down into 4 books, each covering the mastering of one element. The film started with air, which is the only element Aang was able to master before he went missing. Now, that the Avatar is back he must learn how to control the remaining elements. He will have to deal with Prince Zuko and his sister.
