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.
