How many of you guys are familiar with Aang? I’ve been a long time fan of the cartoon series Avatar: The Last Airbender. It’s an American series with an anime style. It’s not quite as graphic or violent (or dark) as most anime, but it’s just so cute and really entertaining. There are four nations in the series: Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, Water Tribe, and Air Nomads. There are certain people who can manipulate, or “bend,” their respective elements. The world is thrown off balance when the Fire Nation seizes control over the other nations. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, can restore balance on earth and end the war. Aang, the Avatar, is only eleven years old and hasn’t quite mastered all four elements. He makes friends along his journey and it’s just a really fun and interesting story. I’m for sure a big fan!
So needless to say, I’m so excited about the new movie! When I first heard about the movie being in production I was so sad that I didn’t audition. Then I heard it was going to be done by M. Night Shyamalan and that made me nervous. On one hand you have Signs and on the other you have The Happening. I feel like it’s it’s either a hit or miss with Mr. Shyamalan. From the trailers I’ve seen of The Last Airbender it looks amazing! It’s a big block buster production and I love it! There’s a scene where there’s some sort of storm in the ocean or something…oh…my…Airbender. I love it!!
All of the bending I’ve seen just looks so cool. I’ve seen merchandize being sold, too. I saw a friend wearing a fire nation t-shirt at a club last week (lol). So the question is: which nation do I belong to? (Wow. What…a…nerd. I just heard myself.)
The movie comes out everywhere July 1st. (OMG that’s next week! Eek!) It will be available in 3-D. I will for SURE be watching. Will you?
[For all of you crazy Airbender fans, where is this from: “Avatar state! Yip yip!” LOL]
