"ok" is way more praise than it deserves. I'd say it is probably the worst adaptation of a popular material ever put to film.



a. never seen this and didn't know that the new version existed.

b. Airbender tried to take on too much in one movie. They tried to condense a four season series to a 2 hour movie, it just wasn't going to happen and do the series justice. Honestly, I'm not sure they could have done an element each movie and done it in 4 movies, it still would have been cramped but at least reasonably doable in the right hands.

They tried to condense a single season into a hour and a half long movie. They didn't at least attempt all 3 seasons in a single film, which would be impossible.

For an even believable movie it would at least have to be 2 hours long. I saw the run time on it and knew it would fail.

And they put in pointless things from the episodes instead of hitting the big characters that would appear in other movies

In order to do Avatar right, you'd have to make each of the films 2.5 to 3.5 hours long and film all three simultaneously. We are talking a Lord of the Rings scale project. There is too much essential material and character development (especially in the second season) that you would have to give it a lot of time.

The reason you have to film them simultaneously is that the series takes place in less than a years time, and this is essential. If you turn it instead to three years, then it destroys the tension of the series. The point of it taking place in less than a year is to add tension and say to the audience that when Aang faces the Fire Lord, he will ultimately be unprepared and likely be killed in the encounter. Giving him 3 or 4 years due to the filming between each movie would ruin that tension, and thus the series.

I didn't have a problem with that if it ended the way I think I remember it. Didn't the Avatar take over as he unleashed it? I think it was more to show the potential power of the Avatar more than just his skills that he mastered. I could be way off, like I said, I saw it the opening weekend at the theater and haven't seen it since. I know I hated the guy they got to play Soka.

Spoilers

































quote:

Main article: The Legend of Korra The Legend of Korra, a sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender, was announced at the Comic-Con in San Diego on July 22, 2010.[73][74] It is written and produced by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, the creators and producers of the original series.[75] Initially titled Avatar: Legend of Korra, then The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra, it takes place seventy years after the end of Avatar: The Last Airbender.[76] The first season of 12 episodes aired from April to June 2012, and a second season of 14 episodes is in production. Nickelodeon also awarded an additional 26 episodes to The Legend of Korra, re-announced by co-creator Konietzko at the 2012 Comic-Con in San Diego. The series' protagonist is Korra, a 17-year old girl from the Southern Water Tribe and the reincarnation of the Avatar after Aang's death. The character was partly inspired by Avatar Kyoshi of the original series, whom the creators say was very popular among fans. In order to avoid repetition of Aang's adventures during the original series, the creators wanted to root the show in one place: Republic City. A concept drawing of the city, released with the announcement of the series, shows the city's design as inspired by Shanghai, Hong Kong, Manhattan, and Vancouver with a steampunk vibe.[77] In the show's first season, Korra has to learn airbending from Tenzin, the youngest son of Aang and Katara, and contend with Amon's anti-bender revolution taking place in the city.[78]

Alright. 12 episodes at 24 minutes each and I knocked them out last night and this morning so I am caught up and ready for the new season. I loved the first 4 seasons of Airbender so I wasn't sure how to take this new version but I'm not sure I wouldn't rank it above all the other seasons.

I liked that they started the show with her close to being the avatar and that she needed the one piece of the puzzle to become full powered though I thought that Aang had flashes of full avatar power before he learned all four elements? I like the fact that it took place in a new setting and I really liked the Equalists storyline and I found the whole thing interesting.

They premiered the first episode at Comic-Con, so I can't imagine that they won't debut the first episode online before the actual premiere date.

Korra is the Avatar after Aang, so the series takes place 70 years after the original. The first season focused on an Equalist movement, with it being benders vs nonbenders. This season will focus on a Water Tribe Civil War and a War with the Spirits.

It washes that filth the movie put on the franchise completely off. It is so far of equal and in some ways superior quality to the original series. Some people bitch about it, but no one hates it and are all glad that the series evolved in the way it did.
