Netflix’s Live-Action Avatar: The Last Airbender – Cast, Trailer, Release Date, & Everything We Know

Summary

  • Dallas Liu’s Zuko rescues Paul Sun-Hyung Lee’s Iroh with firebending in the first clip from Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender.
  • The clip depicts part of Zuko’s quest for honor as he, along with his uncle, searches for the Avatar in hopes of capturing him.
  • Epic bending is on display in the clip as Zuko saves Iroh and the two face off against soldiers from the Earth Kingdom.

Dallas Liu’s Prince Zuko rescues Paul Sun-Hyung Lee’s Iroh with a stunning display of firebending prowess in a new preview clip from Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action adaptation. Based on the beloved Nickelodeon animated series, the upcoming fantasy epic explores a young boy known as the Avatar who is gifted with mastery over the four elements in his fight against the tyrannical Fire Nation’s conquest. Liu’s Zuko is a disgraced Fire Nation prince looking to regain his honor by capturing the Avatar, and is joined by his veteran uncle, General Iroh.

With Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender adaptation set to release soon, IGN has unveiled a new clip focused on the anti-hero and his lovable uncle.

In the clip, Zuko launches a daring rescue to save an imprisoned Iroh, who is chained and being driven under armed guard on a cart in a dense forest. Both Fire Nation royals then join forces in an epic bending display, but Iroh is more than prepared to leave the fight without spilling too much blood, sharing his perspective from his extensive, but tragic military career with one of his captors.

Will Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender Change How Viewers See Zuko?

With season 1 of Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender adaptation adapting the events of Book One: Water, newcomers to the franchise are set to be introduced to Zuko at the lowest point in his life. Left scarred both physically and mentally by his father, Fire Lord Ozai (Daniel Day Kim), the prince is filled with anger and pain, trying to live up to his birth status and set on capturing the Avatar to win his father’s favor again. While Iroh attempts to impart wisdom to the boy, Zuko must also contend with Commander Zhao’s (Ken Leung) ambition.

However, Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender adaptation will deviate from the source material with a larger expansion on the Fire Nation, introducing key players earlier on in the series’ narrative. Alongside an earlier in-person appearance from Ozai, Princess Azula (Elizabeth Yu) will make an appearance, alongside her allies Ty Lee (Momona Tamada) and Mai (Thalia Tran), despite them making their debuts in season 2 of the animated series. With the live-action series introducing an earlier Fire Nation cast, the series may be using a greater perspective to make Zuko a more complex and sympathetic figure from the start.

With this new Avatar: The Last Airbender clip, audiences have been given a promising introduction to Liu and Lee’s Zuko and Iroh, showcasing their personalities. While both are skilled fighters, their close familial relationship and Iroh’s decades of wisdom and compassion are also on display, showing them as more than just conquerors from the Fire Nation. As the Avatar’s return is set to change the world once more, both Zuko and Iroh are set to undergo a journey that will shape how they view their home.

Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender releases on February 22.

Riassunto Le immagini di IA immaginano ibridi live-action/animazione dei principali personaggi di South Park, e tutti sembrano inquietanti. South Park probabilmente non funzionerebbe in live-action perché lo stile dell’animazione è un pilastro fondamentale di molti scherzi e gag fisiche. Anche le divertenti voci e gli elementi fantastici sono più adatti all’animazione. South Park: Quando l’animazione […]
