About a month ago, Producer Frank Marshall released a statement saying that the cast for the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender movie was final and no amount of bitching on the intarwebz was going to change their minds, so I planned to just boycott the whole thing, or torrent it so Paramount won’t get any of my money.

First images of the film were just released by USA Today a few hours ago, and now I have mixed feelings about it. The avatard in me wants to watch it just because it’s Avatar. But the casting still  really, really ticks me off.

Nothing against Dev Patel, I think he’s great, but I still think he’d be better off as Sokka. Noah Ringer doesn’t look that bad. I don’t get that smudge on his forehead though. Are they nixing the tatoos, or CGI-ing them post-prod? This whole thing’s just really weird. The trailer will be out in June, so I’m crossing my fingers.

Dear World. Pls to stop raeping my fandomz. kthxbai!♥ Gab

    1. I think he could. I’ve seen pictures of him when he was still dong “Skins” being all dorky and shit. Haha, I’m still undecided if I should boycott, or watch it just for the love of Dev Patel. XD

  2. I don’t care about the race thing anymore, I’m over it. I just wanna see how their gonna do the graphics for this, I hope its as Epic as the show. Aang looks alright, I saw the preview and he looked cool, just hope the kid can act and make me laugh. As for Sokka we’ll just have to see Jackson’s version in the preview. I wonder when his preview will come. XD

    1. Yeah. The drama around it’s getting really old. I have faith in Dev Patel. And judging from the teaser trailer, their Aang doesn’t look too shabby. I just hope the other actors pull it off.
