To make the story interesting, one person is capable of bending all four elements, and that person will become the Avatar. The avatar plays as the peace-maker of all four nations. Ang was just a little boy when he found out that he is the next avatar. He disappeared and woke up 100 years later. At his disappearance, the Fire Nation ruled all four nations and killed every airbender.
Sokka and his sister Katara found Ang and immediately bonded. The adventure begins as Ang and his companions traveled all four nations to master the Avatar state. Obviously, the Fire Nation intends to wage war with Ang.
The producers shared their excitement to develop an adaptation of the animated Avatar: The Last Airbender.
“We’re thrilled for the opportunity to helm this live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender. We can’t wait to realize Aang’s world as cinematically as we always imagined it to be, and with a culturally appropriate, non-whitewashed cast.”
