The Last Airbender Trailer

The Last Airbender, the adaptation of the animated series Avatar and Jackson Rathbone's newest project, has finally released a trailer.

In a world where the four elements can be controlled by people known as “Benders”, the Fire Nation is waging a ruthless, oppressive war to control the other great nations. The only hope for stopping the brutal war led by the Firebenders rests on the shoulders of a reluctant young boy named Aang (Noah Ringer). The last known survivor of the peaceful Air Nomads, also known as Airbenders, Aang is also the world’s “Avatar”. The “Avatar” is the physical re-incarnation of the world itself, with the power to manipulate all four elements. Aided by a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara (Nicola Peltz) and her bull-headed brother Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), Aang begins a perilous journey to restore balance to their war-torn world. Standing in their way are Fire Nation Admiral Zhao (Aasif Mandvi) and Prince Zuko (Dev Patel), the banished prince of the Fire Nation who seeks to capture the young Avatar to regain his honor.

It looks to be an entertaining movie with a great cast. There are even rumors that M. Night Shyamalan intends to continue the series with a trilogy, in which case we could be seeing even more of Mr. Rathbone in the crazy mowhawk he's been sporting as of late.

And I, for one, could not be more pleased with that thought.


  1. I can't wait to see it!! I don't follow the anime version but I saw the previews and it looks AMAZING!!

  2. I cannot explain how excited I am to see this with my 3 sons. We are all anxiously waiting!
