A lot of 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' fans have made comments regarding the upcoming M. Night Shyamalan film The Last Airbender (starring The Twilight Saga: New Moon star Jackson Rathbone, Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel, Cliff Curtis, Nicola Peltz, Noah Ringer, Jessica Andres, Shaun Toub, Seychelle Gabriel, Aasif Mandvi, Keong Sim, and more).

He said the films would have to be written and shot separately, rather than back to back like the Lord of the Rings series, but they needed to proceed quickly.

One of the greatest cartoons ever, in my opinion, is Avatar: The Last Airbender. Last year, I watched all three seasons (called ‘books’ in their cool structure, named after the elements in the story) and while it took a few episodes to get into, it picked up fast and quickly became an incredible journey, a deep story and most of all, an entertaining series for all audiences.

The project is headed by M. Night Shyamalan who desperately needs a new hit on his resume to counter his falling reputation from each of his »
