Avatar: The Last Airbender Live-Action Trailer Teases Villain’s Antihero Arc & Unseen Event From Animated Show

A new trailer for Netflix’s live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender has been released, revealing new details about the upcoming series. The show, based on the 2005 animated show of the same name, follows Aang, an airbender who is also the Avatar, destined to master all four elements. Following the story of the original, the show will feature the young Avatar learning how to bend water, earth, and fire while combating the Fire Nation’s rule over the world.

Now, Netflix has released a new trailer for the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender show, revealing even more about the new series.

The new trailer reveals the story of the show, with Aang trying to master all four elements as Prince Zuko hunts him down. Familiar locations like Omashu and the Southern Air Temple also appear, emphasizing what to expect from the new series.

What The New Trailer Reveals About Netflix’s Last Airbender

Avatar: The Last Airbender will be adapting season 1 of the original show, titled “Book 1: Water,” into eight hour-long episodes. Much like its source material, the show will focus on Aang’s journey with Katara and Sokka to the Northern Water Tribe so the young Avatar can master waterbending. The show will also feature Zuko’s hunt for the young bender as he tries to reclaim his honor in the Fire Nation.

As the trailer reveals, major Avatar: The Last Airbender moments are adapted into the live-action series. This includes glimpses of Aang battling King Bumi, Zuko being punished by Fire Lord Ozai, and the Kyoshi Warriors fighting Fire Nation invaders. The trailer also hints at some differences from the source material, such as footage of the Northern Air Temple being destroyed and Azula having a prominent presence.

Given how faithful to the source material the trailer looks, Avatar: The Last Airbender might be another impressive adaptation of an animated series from Netflix. Since the show is covering Book 1 in season 1, it’s possible the series will get the number of seasons it needs to reimagine all three Books. With the release date just around the corner, it won’t be long until Netflix presents a new rendition of the classic animated show.
