I’ll admit, when the news of M. Night Shyamalan’s “whitewashing” of Avatar: The Last Airbender was first being discussed I only took an academic interest in it. (And was momentarily confused about how something with blue cat people could be whitewashed). Now that I am two-thirds of the way through the series, and hopelessly in love with Zuko, I have a much better understanding how atrocious that decision was. (Read Shyamalan’s lame excuse here). Which makes all the bending awesomeness in this trailer all the more frustrating.
And why so dark? It looks like perpetual twilight in this trailer. I still have season three ahead of me but, so far, the world around Aang is a bright and colorful one. Despite the difficuly of their journey, nature goes on as it would, largely unaffected by the squabbles of men…
So, who’s going to complain all the way to the opening day lines with me?
Irene Gallo hearts Zuko, wants to run a “Photoshop Dan Dos Santos into Aang” contest, and celebrated Avatar-state Easter.
