Jackson Rathbone: The Last Airbender Still!

Jackson Rathbone: The Last Airbender Still!

Check out this new still of Jackson Rathbone in the upcoming The Last Airbender!

Movie summary: Water. Earth. Fire. Air. In the old days, there was peace between the four nations of the world. The Avatar — Master of all four elements — kept peace between the the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. Only the Avatar has the ability to Bend (manipulate) all four elements, but one day, he vanished. Then the Fire Nation attacked, forcing a war on the other three nations for one hundred years.

Now, for the good of the world, it’s up to 12-year-old Aang (Noah Ringer), the new Avatar, and the last of the Air Nomads (Airbenders), to return peace and balance by putting an end to the war and mastering all four elements. Aang must accept his destiny by stopping the Fire Nation’s war and defeating the Fire Lord for good.

The flick, also starring Nicola Peltz and Dev Patel, hits theaters on July 2. Bigger pic inside…

    I’m so excited about The Last Airbender movie. I hope it’s as good as the animated series was.

  • daniella!!

  • chickenrules

    they’ve just ruined everything….why cudnt have the ppl who play the characters in the show do the movie? i personally think its not gonna be anywhere near as good as the series

  • dobby

    Movie is racist. Epic Fail.

  • Skylar

    I’m not sure what I think about it. I loved the series but I’m not sure about this movie. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

    @chickenrules: The people who played them in the series didn’t look very young and they probably aren’t near as young now. Age is a very important part of Avatar. It would be the same if Aang was any older than 12 and Katara was any older than 14.

    How is this movie racist?

    dobby – How is the move racist? It is based on a fictional cartoon. No one in the cartoon is of a certain race. I think people expect it to be of one certain race but it is very multi-cultural. Even the voice actors in the cartoon are a variety different races. Again, it is only a movie and not based on real life. It actualy teaches life lessons. Just try to enjoy the movie.

    The Last Airbender story itself is not racist because of the multicultural theme but the casting choices are. If you look at the cast, the lead heros went to white actors and the villains to people of color when there are numerous references to Asian and Native American cultures Even in the intro of the animated show has Chinese writing and martial arts. Now, one could argue that the actors were picked because of their talent and experience (which is great, and I support that), however, since the movie is heavily based on the show, why didn’t Paramount and Nickelodeon go all the way and present the characters ethnicities fairly? Sokka and Katara are supposed to be of Inuit descent and Aang is of Chinese or Tibetan descent. Even Roger Ebert is asking “Why are Paramount and Nickelodeon going out of there way and angering the fans when there are capable Asian actors?”
