The Last Airbender 2 Movie (Earth): News, Videos, and Information

Unfortunate news The Last Airbender 2 is very much on the back burner, the Avatar The Last Airbender Movie received a boat-load of criticism so chances of the sequel are slim, a reboot of an Avatar The Last Airbender movie is more likely. As always as soon as we hear any news about The Last Airbender 2 Movie we will let you all know!

You may have heard about M Night Shyamalans recent movie “Devil” which he was already planning on producing shortly after The Last Airbender. Well word has just arrived that he will be directing a new film called ‘One Thousand A.E.’ which makes it appear that the second Avatar: The Last Airbender Movie is way on the back-burner.

This may be some good news for the majority of fans who were disappointed in The first Last Airbender movie as this is one of the rare films M Night is directing but not writing (which will hopefully mean he will direct but not write The Last Airbender 2). Many fans hope M Night never touches The Last Airbender ever again, but I think he still should have a place in the movie series (being the one who had the idea to start it), albeit he needs a lot of help, and with some major renovations to the movies style and scripting I think it will be something worthwhile. If you want to find out more about what we thought of the first Last Airbender movie then Read the full review of The Last Airbender.

Despite mainly negative reactions from fans of the show and movie goers alike the movie has had solid financial success, the movie has been quite profitable in theaters making well over $300 million, the DVD and Blu-Ray sales should help increase that number as well, making the likelihood of a second Airbender movie increase, although it’s still up in the air whether or not it will ever be made.

Maybe this latest movie of M Night will not have a twist ending, now that would be a twist wouldn’t it :)

What do you think?

    I hope he does make a Last Airbender 2. I want him to finish what he has created.

    Me too. But I hope he gets a clue from the fans and makes it into the movie it should have been. He can scratch out what he did with the first one with the whole stupid peace thing. I don’t care. He just needs to stick with the series and not do something “new”. Because his “new” was junk. And someone else needs to write it besides him. Because he did a terrible job. XP

    I agree with both of you. he should finish the series, he has the vision but he didnt get the point of series at all! Effects are nice but its the message that he missed. The character inter-actions and development over the whole animated series is fantastic… dare i say perfect!!!!!
    and that is what the second and third movie must have… Growth! Kids now adays need to see the transformations that all the characters have through out the series and the first movie missed that completly. The story is about Aangs adjustment to tragedy and over coming an impossible task in the most impossible manner without losing himself in the process. Zuko’s story is of the same caliber and depth with an opposite ending finding out who HE is. In closing the movies should focus on the insights of the support characters Iroh, Sokka’s master, Aang’s first fire bending teacher and so on

    Benjamin Reply:

    What do u think was the message Shyamalans missed ? I believe he is making the Avatar a Buddha-like figure. The Avatar was not supposed to hurt others because it was the way of compassion. That’s what the old uncle was trying to instill into Zuko. No?

    First of all there was absolutely no need for that amount of bad language or any for that matter.

    Secondly Please explain to me how the movie had any negative impact on the series, when it was clearly a different continuity. If the movie killed the series, please explain to me how the cartoon continuity is more popular and active than it has ever been.
    If anything the movie has brought in more fans.

    And as for you questioning people as Avatar fans, that is just shocking. Let me get this right, you are saying someone is no longer an Avatar fan because they like a part of Avatar, yet you are a fan because you dislike a part of Avatar. Sadly this logic escapes me.

    Then the insults on MNS, someone has taken the movie too seriously, if you do not like the movieverse then simply stay away from it. You insulting anyone who has an interest in it is doing absolutely nothing but you getting mad about something you should not care about.

    I AGREE the movie has brought more fans to the TV show me and my family have been waiting on more news about book 2 since the first movie was released. I don’t see were all the negativity is coming from my family has been devoted movie watchers since I could remember, and everyone I’ve talked to absolutly loved the movie. Yeah the movie did’t touch on alot of things that the TV show had and they changed some of the names but move past that people it was a GREAT movie and I can’t wait for the next one from what I here they are looking at around June 7th 2013.

    We dislike the movie but we support the show. I agree it had many flaws, but i consider it to be a bad copy of a great original. And airspeed is right about one thing, it brought many fan to avatar. So hopefully mks doesn’t make a sequal and we get a reboot. (in my opinion)

    He should not even be allowed anywhere near the last airbender book 2, he did a crap ass job on the first one, the whole movie was just crap. There was nothing good about it, the characters were off, the pacing, the scences the directing, the cgi. He couldn’t even pronounce the characters names right. He even left out critical moments, if he directs the next airbender movie, god help us all

    Just as Zuko’s main theme is redemption (by choice, specifically), I strongly wish to see Night redeem his love of the series and finish his movies. I believe he can do it with the next two movies and I await the outcome with great anticipation.

    yellowdingo Reply:

    I dont think he can. Core to the Series is the underlying story where Katara pushes Aang to be the Avatar who saves the world – and so the real central figure saving the world is Katara. This was gutted from the Film – and keeping continuity with the first film undermines the remaining parts of the story even further.

    The removal of the Sokka background story and his relationship with the Kyoshi Warriors is also an important part of the tale. Once gone – there is no set up for how the Kyoshi Warriors know Team Avatar – and the relationship between Sokka and Suki which is vitally important in the Boiling Rock.

    Come on MNS – you can do it, you have to finish what you’ve started!!!! I want to see what you can come up with and also see your skills grow and I want to also see the characters have a chance to also grow and become more solid and strong in their roles, don’t leave it too long or as Airspeed Prime says – Noah Ringer will be 6ft and you’d have to find a new kid to play the role… though you’ve plotted it for 3 years for Sozin’s comet to return so I guess that gives the GAang time to grow physically somewhat… :)

    How could he not make a 2nd and 3rd one, the first one was good despite what everyone says, but it could have been better. This is his chance to show us that he can make an awesome airbender movie. But no matter what, if he does make a second one, I will be one of the first in line to go see it.

    i have never seen the avatar at all untill the movie came out and i really have to say i liked it now understand i know nothing of the books or cartoon of but after reading all this it makes me want to get the books they are always better anyway and no body is perfect and we all have to understand we cant possibale please everyone at the same time some people liked the way it was made and others didnt but it is because people had such bad things to say that it is taking so long for another movie to come out so i guess it is fare to say it is what it is and take it for that he had a vision of what he wanted and i have no clue who the guy is but its like batman more people will make the same movie but in a defrent and some times better or some times worse way i mean we all know it is going to happen but in all i would like to see it to the end just like i did harry potter and lord of the rings i like for people to finsh what they started

    They can’t leave it too long as the actors will age and it will become to much of a difference. It takes a good 2 years to create the film, especially if it’s going to continue with awesome CGI and if they decide to film in 3D this time, so 2012 would still be way too ambitious for release unless they begin straight after Christmas/New Year break… who knows, they may already be working on the scenery stages, anyone from philly here? Could you shoot out to the lot, where they did alot of the filming and see if there’s any action happening there?….. oooo do it secret squirrel type though! we want the news here first :) I’ll send out scouts to see if anyones scoping around NZ,lol… We had the Earth Nation forest scene’s filmed here, and the longshot scene of the Firelord’s Palace when Zhou was outside with Ozai…. how do I know, well the Pukeo bird flying in the scene as it cuts towards the palace and the tree’s within the scenes are indigenous to NZ… I didn’t know about them filming here at the time, but have been working on getting more industry ties so I can hear asap if there is anything new happening :) At the mo we’re having a problem with keeping The Hobbit here, even though work is well advanced in the Hobbitville in Matamata…. fingers crossed we don’t lose it….

    It sure is as beautiful as LOTR is showing! We’ve just had a huge fight as a country to keep The Hobbit here, due to an aussie actors union trying to cause pay strikes within our own acting frat. which then caused Warner Bro’s to pull out of NZ filming, so our country and Govt. all went to bat to keep it here… after long neg. we got there and The Hobbit is here to stay! YAY!!!!

    If your ever in our neck of the woods give us a holla Jordash and we’ll find you some sleeping space for sure! :)

    Now hoping that MNS see’s it the best place to come and shoot Book 2 here, we’re a friendly bunch down here and lots of films and TV shows get filmed here now…. and well being middle Earth, it just seems right, and he did use some of our stunning landscapes as backdrops in Book 1 :) Hell he is most welcome to come and film Ember Island scenes here, where I live… our beach is soooo beautiful, long white sand and plenty of space to film the volley ball scene :) I’ll be more than happy to put up the cast at my house :) though don’t think we have enough room for them all, but sure we can organize something surely lol….. And our home kinda looks like the Firelord’s Ember Island Beach home, a few modifications and volia… lol…..

    Yea to support Donna’s point…sequels can take time to compile up..and if they wait too long..they may have to find another character to play Aang and a few others..as the plot of ATLA is no more than a year or so and they may get a lil too old for those parts. So hopefully the sequel comes in the next year or two.

    i dont want m night to direct it, the thing that annoyed me most is the fact that the fire benders had to carry around fire to manipulate it. like really? thats what made the firebenders so powerful was the ability to create it themselves, and if he grows some sense and changes it it will be to confusing because people will be like what? how did this happen i thought they needed fire with em? also back in season 3, thinkin down the road, if he does direct it he needs to put the fire warriors or w/e they r called and instead of them learning “peaceful fire” the dragons need to teach em how to make their own fire. just sayin, reply if u want lol

    Hey nnick,

    Would be interesting to see if they do introduce the Sun Warriors and the lessons from the Dragons on true firebending – it is a huge part of the final story, however we’ve seen MNS miss out King Bumi and the divine Kyoshi Warriors in book one of the movie… though he does say that they make a huge entrance in book 2… if that happens… which I really do hope! I like it when people complete things, rather than leaving them unfinished… I think with all the outpouring MNS got from Book 1 of the movie, I feel he’s got a lot to learn from and would like to see him accomplish this….

    As far as firebenders needing to have a source of fire to bend from…. MNS said he wanted to put everyone on an even field per say with the firebenders having to carry fire around to bend from just as the water benders needed to carry or have sources of water to bend from… it did give the storyline a twist, just a different view – at the end of the movie, Oazi states that in 3 years time Sozin’s comet will return, giving all fire benders the ability to bend directly from their chi, that is when they will win the war and show the world their true power and ability to rule the world… so he has wrapped up that thread within the storyline… is it a hint that we won’t get to see the Sun Warriors and the beautiful Ran and Shao? I really hope not, as Zuko & Aang really get to learn how to use their firebending for healing and peace rather than just destruction and causing pain…. Only time will tell…. :)

    Yeah Donna is right the fact that firebenders need fire around to bend adds an interesting twist also master firebenders can bend fire from their own sources so it’s really not that big a change from the source.

    Buy the dvd so paramount will realize that the fans still want to see the rest of the trilogy. As long as shymalan gets some help from the creators of avatar for the second and third movies because I’m sure they would be glad to help shynalan write a better script that the fans will enjoy more. I’m also curious to see azula and whether or not she will have blue fire because in the movie she won’t be able to bend her own fire (probably). That was one of my favorite things about azula from the show.

I liked the last airbender and as far as the character growth it would be really hard to fit a lot of character growth in the movie because they don’t have the time like the show did, they can’t put filler scenes in the movie so the audience can watch the characters grow as a person, I do agree there definately needs to be more parts to show character growthpp but the movie doesn’t have ten hours like the show did for each book (just an average).

    Yeah it would be a huge shame if the other 2 don’t get made, 2 and 3 will have less hoping around and will make for more opportunities for character development and relationships.

    Why would ANYone want him to continue the movie series? Even if by some miracle any of the sequels turn out to be fantastic, it’s too late, the first film is such absolute garbage that the entire series will be tainted and ruined by the opening of the story. Scrap the movies and just enjoy the real Avatar, especially since the new series with Avatar Korra is coming soon.

    Because Some people actually liked the Movie (I really did), The movie had NO negative effect on the show, everyone knows that the Show is better, the movie has only brought more fans into the Fandom.
    You have to take into account that The movie is a different continuity that is just BASED on the series, and that any director was going to have trouble adapting Book 1 into a film, Since Book 1 is a new place every episode(pretty ,much).
    Has Avatar not thought you to keep your mind open to the possibilities.

    I would be very happy never to see another M.Night movie ever again. I certainly dont want him anywhere near ATLA or ATLK EVER! They should put their resources and money behind making spin off movies of the ideas we’ve already thought of and would like to see. Movies like: Iroh’s journey to the spirit world, Avatar history (pick any Avatar), the origin’s of the Avatar, Airbender history, Southern Watertribe history, etc. The list could go on and on. Never should they do any more live action (it doesn’t do the animation or show justice) and never, I mean NEVER should M.Night Shamylan ever touch this again.

    As much as I love Avatar and as much as I respect all of your opinions ( I didn’t read all the comments ), I got to say: SCREW M. Night Shyamalan ! It was the best news I had today, that he wouldnt make Avatar 2 all too soon.
    The show= Awesome
    His movie= The biggest piece of crap I’ve seen in a long long time!

    Yes, he had the idea of making that movie but still if you have an awesome idea, and you do poorly, it’s your own fault. It is! And yes he could do Avatar 2 and change oh so many things he did wrong in the first movie, but anybody else could do that, as well. If you have an idea about something you don’t know much about (he had apparently not a darn clue) then you should take even more time and consideration to actually listen to people who know how it should be and what the fans want!
    All I’m saying is that I hope he wont do Avatar 2 and that they take someone else who learned from his mistakes or just turn Avatar 2 into a cartoon.
    Thank you for reading

    p.s. Somehow the actors didn’t convince me…some fault of the bad movie lies also with them. Some.

    I would hope that they would start from scratch. Completely. There is nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said. The story, the acting, the race issues. I’m actually glad that Shyamalan seems to be pulling away from it. It shows that he really didn’t take the property seriously in the first place. If no one in hollywood is going to take the live action version seriously, then scrap it. If you want a feature length film, go animated. Do a full 2D animated movie with the same writers and directors from the tv series.

    I agree, but waiting 5-6 years for someone to finally bring this work of art to the big screen will be torture. I almost wish Hollywood never touched it. Below is the dialog I wish the studios would have had with M. Night:

    M. Night: “I have a great idea. Let’s make a movie based on the Avatar cartoon show!”

    Studio Exec: “That is a wonderful idea! Thank you for that, we will get on it right away!”

    M. Night: “And I want to write, produce, and direct the movie. I’ve never done this kind of movie before, so it will be a new experience for me.”

    Studio Exec: “…..uh, um, hmmm. Well M. Night, I liked 6th Sense and everything after that has been……well, you know. I want to stay true to the art and vision of the show. So we are going to hire the writers, the director, and the producers of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon to make this movie. They made that masterpiece for only $17million. Imagine if we give them a $200million budget to make Avatar The Last Airbender. It may be the greatest martial arts/fantasy movie ever made!”

    M. Night: “Ok, you have a point……….”

    Anybody can see this movie was just awful! It didn’t get worst movie for nothing! The acting was terrible, and they cast the wrong people! The only people I really minded was Katara and Sokka, cause they are suppose to be inuit not white. I am not saying he is racist but i dont think he made the right decision on that part. I wish he just got a world map and the avatar map and put contents where the might be in the avatar world. Like i dont know Anartictica with the southern water tribe. It was kinda lame how it took Aang like 3 moves to actually airbend. There were just a lot of mistakes in the movie! I wish for the future they remake the movie and start all over!! But that probably wont happen so if thy do plan on making another movie get a better screenwriter and director! But for me I beg they dont make another one!

    One thing I have to ask to all the critics in the comment booth here. Since when did cartoon, action and manga fall under the same critiques. Did you have the same feeling with Teenage mutant ninja turtles? Or did you appreciate the perception and the complexity of its artist.? I loved this Avatar movie, and I am an avid cartoon fan as are my children who and which love both as well. Your attitude may have been the very reason for the sequel not being created. Which mind you have many children I know wanting more,but unfortunately the negative behavior of the adult sect has discontinued that idea for sure. I would like a sequel if not for the sake of the seeing a project through but appreciating the objectivity of teaching children to whom this is based for that there is peaceful resolution to most things. But you still have to fight to get what you want in life and you must find the equilibrium to balance it out within yourselves. Isn’t that the lesson we all must learn. Also to not pass such judgement on others because it does not match our own. Think on that and then maybe one day if we are lucky the cartoon wont be our only sequel.

    You might think I think a lot of myself (but I don’t) when I say this:

    But let ME do the film right.

    I’ve only recently finished watching the series and I love it.
    I definitely have the right idea on how to translate it to live-action.
    The key is obviously to leave the original material as intact as possible.
    I know all about how cheesy and what not these movies become.
    It’s being so forcefully made into a movie, so “modern” and “blockbustery” and… I can’t put it into words.

    I haven’t even seen the movie and I do not want to.
    Because I read everywhere that it’s not good, and I don’t want it to alter my idea of what it would be like as a live-action movie.

    I would love to make it and show it, because I have the right idea about it.
    And I just know it would be appreciated.
    The way it should look, the way the story should go, the music, about anything.
    All I know is it would be a gigantic project.
    Inside I’m really excited about it and I know it would be great.
    But it’s not my job or profession, so I’m sad to think it’s not possible.
    Maybe in some time…
    I’d be happy to work on it, so I’m free anyway.

    Ok so you have not even see the movie and you are confident you can make a better movie.

    Your idea seems to be a live action show and not a live action movie, to make 20 episodes of 23 minutes into a movie things need to be changed, and especially with the format of Book 1 of the show there is no way anyone is going to make a perfect movie version that is not just a straight up carbon copy live action show.
    The movie was made to be a summer blockbuster, which it was and would have done even better if it had any support from fans.

    I don’t see how you can comment on making a better movie when you have not even see TLA.
    TLA got the following correct
    -Costumes
    -Sets/backgrounds
    -CG animation, bending effects
    -music
    -Actors, people will say it was racist all they want, but the actors did a good job with the not great script they had to go off

    I would recommend watching the movie, but don’t even bother if you just plan to tear it apart, go in with an open mind knowing it is going to be different. Just having a positive attitude helps :)

    What I find funny is that even though the movie was criticized almost unanimously (save from airspeed and a few others), the movie net a substantial profit, and also sold a large sum of DVD’s, toys, games, etc.

    I’m 99% sure they well make the sequel, because they know that even a flop would do well in box office, it’s just the matter of who would direct it. I didn’t particularly like M. Night’s rendition, but he definitely tried, and it wasn’t completely awful.. (the pronunciations really hit a nerve though LOL).

    And it’s no easy job either: to convert 20epi x 23min = 460 minutes of a cartoon into a 90-120 minute movie is no easy job, especially when the show is revered for its lack of filler.

    I feel they should have taken the Harry Potter route, and split Book One into two movies. Episodes 1-18 for movie one. And then the two-part finale for movie two, made almost carbon copy-style, because we could all admit Book 1/2/3′s finales are directed to be VERY cinematic, and I can easily picture them all as a Live Action when I watch them.

    With Book One already out, this cannot happen, but I hope they consider this for Book two. It would allow them time to fit in character development, something M. Night’s movie clearly lacked, and tell the Avatar’s story the way it should be.

    The first Airbender was Very Good. I loved it! You MUST do a second movie, and third ! Viewer interest will accelerate Mr. Shyamalan. The first movie’s special effects were excellent. You can’t deny it.
    Airbender Noah Ringer made exquisite fighting moves, and stances, but if you must, you can always get a different actor for each movie if that’s your worry.
    It was done with the Batman movies and it worked just fine. You can make millions of dollars! I AM the public ! Please do it.

    The problem is not with the race of which plays any one tribe. To have nothing but Asians Ex.Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, Koreans and…. to be filmed in this movie would cost more then it would be worth to produce the movie in the first place. Lets say for instance that someone is arguing, “The original story is Japanese therefore only Japanese should be filmed in the movie.” Well the problem with that is all the characters with say at least five lines would be recognized as a story line Character. How many story line characters are involved in this one movie? There are a grip of them. How many bilingual Japanese actors and actresses do we have here in the states? There are more then you can count on two hands but not much more. That means to fill the rest of the characters they would have to do one of two things import the actors and actresses and spend a butt load of money and time to teach them how to speak English or pay a crap load of nobody actors and actresses to play the part spending loads of time to teach them how to act. If you take this into consideration you might understand M. Night’s decisions to use Indians to play as one of the tribes.

    And just to set you straight Indians are also Asian they just have a darker shade to them cause of the dry and hot environment they live in.

    Okay I know I am commenting on this movie a little late but it is never too late to say anything on matters such as this.

    There are always going to be the fans of the Anime series that aren’t going to agree completely with the movies that have or are going to be made after the anime series. The thing is there is not enough time to cover everything in one movie even if it is split into 3 movies. Some of the story line from the anime is going to be strategically left out to fit into a 1.5-3 hour time window. something to keep in mind before you say it didn’t have the whole story line therefore I didn’t like the movie. I myself think M. Night did a good job in sorting out important parts of the story line to condense into a movie. Keeping up with the same quality of visual effect in other movies to keep it consistent with the first movie may have a deeper effect then M. Night’s pockets or more so then he is comfortable budgeting out.

As well as ozai! But its what I expect from nick,all their movies are like that, and whats up with them showing ozai straight away? In the series thy milked not showing him for ages which really built up the character for me!
    But regardless of of thr movies flaws it was still so awesome to see the series alive again, as the 4 books alone were nowhere near enough for me! Lets hope legend of kora will be as good!

    I wouldn’t mind a sequel but definitely not from M Night. To be honest I think it would be best if Nickelodeon started the whole film series over because the first movie was done so badly. I didn’t like the writing or the acting or the casting choices. Avatar is one of the best shows ever made but every think that made the show great like the comedy was missing from the film.

    I had only seen one or two episodes before I saw the movie, and I enjoyed the movie, enough to get me to watch the show. I’m 30; I probably wouldn’t have been tempted to watch the series had I not seen the movie simply because it is a cartoon.

    One thing to keep in mind when judging any movie based on a book or a TV series is that the movie is going to be shorter. There will be changes and there will be things that are left behind. When you watch the show or read the book first, you already have set expectations, and if a character is not as you imagine or if they sound different than the original, it is very hard to get past. I know this from experience. Even Jurassic Park initially dissapointed me, because I read the book before. Now, having watched it many times since the first, I love that movie.

    M Night is actually a fan of the Avatar series, and they actualy shot almost the entire first season in live action. His interpertation of the show was enough to get me to watch the cartoon, so for that I have to be thankful. It has it’s flaws, yes, but when we fall in love with the source material, it can turn us into a very harsh critic.

    My experience exactly. I saw the movie; liked it, and became interested in the animated version and loved it. So I bought the three book collections. ( I would be interested in a movie sequel just the same)

    I really hope they finish the series all the way to suzins comet. The first movie could have been better but I enjoyed it all the same. The one thing I really want to see is the seige of Ba Sing Se.

    He massacred this movie. First of all as soon as i saw Rathbone as sokka i was like “HELL NO!” then i saw the kid they scraped out of a hot texas sidewalk and i completely fell apart. Who would do this? Is it so hard to find an asian kid who can act? There are literally billions running around. Also the way that kid scrounged up his face soooo hard like he was constipated or something and then a little bit of air came out was tragically hilarious. Last, (and the one i have the most contention with) Ang has been through a lot thats true. But ang is first and foremost and optimistic, sweet, and PLAYFUL kid. This texan kid was totally depressing. I totally wanted Ang to get on that ball of wind he always makes and roll around like he does. His playfulness is one of his most important qualities. In conclusion, Special effects sucked, The actors were the wrong race, and Ang’s name ISNT UNG IS ANG! HOW CAN YOU GET THE PRONUNCIATION OF HIS NAME WRONG?! DID M.NIGHT CRAPALYAN EVEN WATCH ONE EPISODE OF THE SHOW?! FML!

    Why was everyone so upset about it anyway?!!!!!!!!!!! Wow! they didn’t have kioshi warriors (but if you watch the deleted scenes of the trio in the earth kingdom town there are kioshi warriors with fans) and they might have pronounced aangs and sokkas names wrong but so what? The whole thing was perfect! Yes they changed a few things like aang not being an angry ocean spirit but it was way better and they didn’t add some stuff from the series but you can’t exactly fit 533 minutes of episodes into a 103 minute long film! Like seriously! Get a grip! Everyone who said they hated the movie and are now the ones begging for another one! You people are such hypocrites! This was a great movie but it got such a negative response because some sadistic people didn’t get exactly what they wanted and now they’re not going to make another one. So don’t start crying because there is not gonna be another one. It’s your own fault that they arn’t.

    I hope that their is a reboot to the movie and someone else takes over. Unfortunately the movie was horrible and moved way to quickly. I think someone like Peter Jackson would be able to create a series of movies that would be more in line with the story!

    i think you people should wait it out to see what he does with the rest of the movies and cast. most people like myself just want to see toph because toph is like the best character they had in the cartoon series. so i hope everyone will see that his movies aren’t bad just that he didn’t incorporate as much as he needed to from the cartoon series. so M Night Shyamalans make the second and third movies please.

    i also hope he makes a next one 2 because i want to know what will happen next and it was funny cool awesome and really great also if he doesn’t make another one he would just be getting more hate mail than what he was because he diddnt finish the whole movie. Ok just because he did a bad job on it to some of you people but it was something he never done before but if you guys just give him a chance and improve in the movie and stop sending hate mail and things like that maybe he would be encouraged and do better. You don’t have to be mean to him all you have to do is try helping him out and tell him what he can do better in the movie and tell him to do better than the first one instead of yelling and putting him down along with cursing and yes i saw a lot of cursing in some other website just like this one and im only a kid and i know to act and there was teenagers that were cursing and stuff at him and that is just sad because you are older and making a big deal out of this and if you are thinking that im not a fan don’t know anything about this movie then you are so wrong because i watch the cartoon version seasons like 10 times and have all the books along with the complete set of CD’s so there. Just give the guy a break because all you people that are doubting him are just being mean and unfair because the people that want to see the rest of the movie might not be able to because of you people and that is all i have to say

    I am a grandmother of 58 yrs old. But despite the fact that I am several yrs older than I am sure most of the crowd that watches these I absolutely love watching it. I don’t however like the antimated versions. I feel that the film that was produced with real characters was absolutely awesome and I have watched it more than once. Ever since watching it the first time I have wondered about the next one. I can’t believe that some have said that it wasn’t a good movie. I totally disagree. I know that every movie made is done with the hopes of being a number one hit and that doesn’t always happen. I personally didn’t find anything wrong with the movie. I feel that the young people that made the movie did a good job. I commend you on the choices of actors. Please, make the sequels. How would it have been if the Harry Potter series had stopped after the first one when it as this one leaves you looking forward to the next one!!

    There is more life on the moon than there was in any of those actors. The animation felt more real and alive than the real-world movie. And that’s what the problem with the movie was. It didn’t feel real or sincere. It felt cold and bland and lifeless, the exact opposite of how Avatar is supposed to feel.

    That may be over-exaggerating a bit. ;)

    That actors didn’t do too bad a job. It was, IMHO, the poor dialogue that dragged the movie down. With a better dialogue, and a lot more humour, it could have been a very good movie.

    not everybody watches the cartoons.. And a lot of people like fantasy movies! I don’t watch the cartoon but I’m definitely a fan of the movie.. I think they should make the sequel.. And also I think it really doesn’t matter if any of you think it sucked because you like the cartoon better..There’s still a lot of fans of Avatar the movie.. You’re not the only fans. So blah !
    Thumbs up to M. Knight for making a good fantasy movie.. That makes us dream about having super powers!!! ;)

I know my opinion doesn’t say a lot.. but just to say.. I have no criticism. And what its worth I will BEG.. for the Last Air bender 2 to PLEASE come out. I know people agree with me that.. it will just be a drag and a let down to fans that appreciate this movie.. if the sequel and finale don’t come out.. but if not.. we will all have this movie in the back of our minds.. about what the potential could be for the last air bender 2 and finale. Again I can’t but insist that the next movies come out… PLEASE!

    I say bring on the next set of films. The first movie actually followed the series quite well. (with the exception of having to use proper English). When a movie is made you cant expect to have every little detail from the show and or books inputted. Remember what happened with some of the Harry potter movies…..they had to be shortened by over 2 hours. Who would sit in the theater for over 5 hours?
    The last air bender had to be told the way it was in the movie for a reason. It was a sad and emotional time for the avatar. I will agree with some on saying that the character profiles didn’t quite match their counterparts in the show.
    I will loose my respect for the film industry (what little there is left, no imagination in film writing any more) if the movie series is not finished. I dont care by whom! Lets put it this way its like having one plain potato chip, doesnt matter if its bland, because you will still have another!

    Very much disappointed. They mispronounced a vast majority of the names and some other words, I seriously hope he doesn’t direct the next movie nor write it. I rather prefer watching the cartoon version. The only thing I really loved about the movie was the graphics. Other than that, we need a better director that can make sure no words or names are mispronounced.

    He did okay but things were not done right great cgi yes but the casting was way wrong and he skipped around. If anyone should make the books 1-3 should be Peter Jackson. He did great by The Lord of the rings. M. Night S, did a good job but he does better with his own movies like Signs and Lady in the Water.

    I have been dying for many years now to see a sequel for this movie that I saw with my ex-gf and our friend in theaters. True, it’s a few differences from the cartoon, but the movie is more traditional, while the cartoon is more entertainment. People are just too picky these days to care. I finally bought the movie and decided while watching it to do some research to see about the sequel. This news is just depressing. :( I would give my savings to see him finish this movie series…

    we finally just watched “The Last Avatar” in animated marathon on nickelodeon. the kids 6 and 7 yrs of age love it there eyes were glued to the tv and with movie we call family nite loved it just as much. I sure with more advertisment and showing on other broadcasting channels to show the 1st movie, the series could take off into flight. Please make the 2nd, 3rd and final movies.

    Some critics were not fair. The film was a good adaptation of the series, took the best from the twenty animated episodes and made well narrated film. Shyamalan should make the sequels.
