Journal Entry: Sat Feb 13, 2010, 4:22 PM
Random Useless Fact: (AKA: Woha! Tihs is cool!) The Paomnnehal Pweor Of The Hmuan Mnid.
Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch as Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. :shrug:

:XD: :XD: :XD: :XD:

Just looking at the cast list should give us a pretty good idea of what Shaymalan is keeping in the movie, and what he is going to reserve for the next two movies. Pictures of the cast will also be up if they are avalible.

Jackson Rathbone as Sokka:…
Dev Patel as Zuko:…
Cliff Curtis as Firelord Ozai:…
Nicola Peltz as Katara:…
Jessica Andres as Suki:…
Noah Ringer as Aang:… (On a personal note, his previous pictures REALLY did not do him justice! I think, and a lot of my fellow FAangirls think, that Noah Ringer is working Aang's classic heart-melting smile!!!)
Seychelle Gabriel as Princess Yue:…
Shaun Toub as Uncle Iroh:…
Aasif Mandvi as Zhao:… (Finally, Zhao DOES live! In real life, I might add...)
Randall Duk Kim as "Old Man in the Temple":… (Could be an Airbender, or a Fire Sage in the Fire Temple on Crecent Island) (Note 2: OMFG! It's Gohan from the live action Dragon Ball atrosity! Spaz!)
Dee Bradley Baker as Appa/Momo (voice):… (Not that what he looks like is important. But any Avatar fan who is an Avatard knows that no one can beat Dee Bradley's mouth! Zack Tyler Eisen (Voice Actor for Aang) tried and failed to copy him. I don't care how you feel about the movie, this is probably the best news EVER!
Katharine Houghton as "Gran-Gran" Kanna:…
Ben Cooke as Avatar Roku:… (Just kidding! Here's a REAL picture)…
Keong Sim as "Earthbending Father":… (Could be Haru's father?)
Julio Neira as Monk (uncredited)… (This guy is uncredited, but I still felt it necassary to mention him. Definatly an Airbender!)

(The following will be cast members added to the list after this list was officially published. Yes, there are new roles being revealed... And the first new one is very pleasing to me...)

Young Zuko: Rohan Shah… (You know what this means to me... even if they don't have the episode 'The Storm' in the movie fully, they are still possibly going to do a Aang and Zuko flashback like the one in the show. But, most importantly, he looks an awful lot like Dev Patel/Zuko)

Has anyone found any proof that Gene Simmons has been cast for the movie? I heard the rumor that he was cast to play a Dragon (possibly Roku's dragon Fang), but I haven't found any evidence to back that up.

Okay, let me make one thing perfectly clear: I am NOT a Racebender! I am the sort of person who perfers to wait until the movie comes out and see how the actors perform the roles rather than judging them on the color of their skin. (Hypocrites).

Here's my opinion of the casting, and their looks. I'm pleased with the casting. ESPECIALLY with the casting of Noah Ringer as Aang. Sure, I was a little worried when his first pictures just showed serious!Noah, but the smiling picture has me sold on his casting. And this is coming from a FAANGril. And I can't wait to see what kind of chemistry Noah and Nicola have, because Kataang is, to quote Mike and Bryan, the "DNA of the show" so that's one of the things I'm desperately hoping is right.

~OrlandoBloomFn, can't wait for June 2nd!

Gonna say, not really an avatar fan but I have watched the first season, or book.. or whatever. and what I DO know of the casting I like so far. Thanks for the updates, even though I dont follow half of the info on plotlines or anything I do like the updates on the movie itself ^^

You should watch the show. It's absolutely amazing. I'm re-watching the third season again and am about to watch the Finale. (I can't wait to see the Finale live-action, because the cartoon version is seriously the coolest thing I've ever seen animated, so live-action is going to EXPLODE PEOPLE'S BRAINS!

Sorry, I'm fangirling again. :lol:

hehe its ok hun. I stopped watching over an argument with my lil bro. He kept saying Airbender was better than my ALL TIME favorite anime Hellsing. soo I stopped watching.
LightEcoSage1 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2010
Ah. That's just a personal opinion. Besides, you could watch Avatar and say it is your all time favorite cartoon since it isn't an anime. That way, you can still call Hellsing your favorite anime. XD

I know the most important thing is their performance and how they portray the character. Maybe I will see the movie and if I like his performance, I will take back what I said about me not liking him being cast as Zuko. But I'm still unsure as of now.

I know it's not that unusual but it still bothers me. What bothers me is that he looks MUCH older than the actress who plays Katara.

I know what you mean about not hating the original because it was adapted into a movie. But for me it's different because it's Avatar. Harry Potter for example, the last four movies were awful. Do I hate the Harry Potter series now? No. But because Avatar is a TV Show (and more specifically, an animated show), I just don't think they should have a live action movie. It may be different for you and the "Dragon Ball" series but to me, well, I just don't like it.

Giving the actors a chance... that is all I ever think people should do. I don't mind people critizing movies. It's just that, when I read a critism, I give more weight to actual performance and plot rather than my expectations. Which is why I can't understand some people all ready posting art here that makes fun of the movie.

Me: What do we have to make fun of? A single teaser trailer?!?

I somewhat agree with you on the adaption thing. I mean... I know that there will never be a ';perfect' adaption. It is physically impossible to take a whole TV season and compress it into a two hour movie without losing some stuff, so tabling some stuff so it happens in the next two movies instead. But there are good adaptions and bad adaptions.

It's funny that you should mention Harry Potter, because I agree with you. The first two movies were the best adaptions out of all of them. 3-5 were... okay. And this last one just left me like... "What?" It's not that the books got progessively worse, it's just that Chris Columbus did the best job. (Which is why I'm glad he's working on the upcoming Percy Jackson movie, since I'm a fan of the books.)

And don't get me started on videogame adaptions. Anything made by the Worst Director of all Time (TM), Uwe Bowl needs to go to Heck.

But I've liked Shaymalan's work, especially "The Sixth Sense", so I'm going to go see it. If it turns out to be bad, then... okay. I'll bemoan the fact that it wasn't good, and then come home and watch the show.

Who doesn't? I always wonder what studio would be stupid enough to keep hiring him...
