    Maybe he voiced the son of Zuko and Mai? That would be cool. The only way we’ll know for sure is when the show finally comes out. I can’t wait to watch it!

    Yeah that’s the most popular theory going around right now.

    :DDDD!!!!!!!!! so exciting! that would be kind of strange if it was his sons voice though, because they would sound exactly the same. maybe some flash backs??

    Admin / Jordash Reply:

    Yeah I though it would be flashbacks as well, and the way he worded it, it seemed like this is a new character. In the interview we’ll try and find out for sure.

    Dante has an amazing voice and vocal range so would think that it probably is more than likely to be both flashbacks and new character… but who so can’t wait to find out!!!! rushes over to forum link that has the Dante questions foaming… opps I mean forming… lol….

    Maybe the whole crew/voice actors of Avatar:TLA can play one character in the series even if it a secondary character. That would be nice.

    Did you know he wanted to play “Zuko” in the movie? Egads, I love that guy’s voice. I think he could have pulled it off, I mean, even watching him on the bonuses when he’d talk Zuko, his expression would change, he became Zuko.
