Apparently M. Night Shyamalan does in fact fear the fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender. I say this because the new pictures from the live-action Avatar movie were just released on Thursday. Aang definitely resembles his cartoon self (see look at him to the right...he totally does!) and so does Zuko, at least mostly. I can't really tell from the picture whether or not Zuko has a scar; which means his scar isn't ugly enough to be truly Zuko's. I guess this picture could be pre-scar Zuko, but then I would think he'd have his ponytail. I mean for goodness sake. Everyone knows that no audience could possibly figure out that Zuko's personality had changed without having him grow out his hair into a shaggy emo mop. Anyway, both of these guys look mostly like their characters should, but Aang needs to be cracking a grin or something. I mean honestly, how often does he really have that straight of a face in the show?
I hope this movie isn't as bad as some of M. Night Shyamalan's other movies. The Lady in the Water and Signs were 2 of the worst movies I've ever seen. I mean what kind of dignified mermaidy lady would live in a crappy apartment's pool? Also, the aliens in Signs were some of the least scary things ever. I guess The Village was kind of spooky, but not really that thrilling. So, I'll be interested to see whether or not he can pull of a movie that should be filled with action. I definitely hope it portrays the characters as being as sassy as the cartoon made them too.
