I hate that this is happening (theres no way this will improve on the original in any way) but good luck to them all, impossible to judge without any clips out and I imagine there'll be a lot of crap thrown their way

Just a reminder that the original creators of the show are no longer associated with this live action version. So I'm expecting a hot mess.

Yeah. The fact that they were initially involved and then stepped away later does NOT bode well for this thing.

I give the new series props for seeking out Indigenous & Asian actors. But that won't save it if the writing and effects are shit

What do you think of the cast?

There's already some controversy about the sokka actor because people on Twitter say he's too white. I think he looks kinda like sokka 🤷‍♀️.

He should probably step back - not because there's anything wrong with him, but because the wokies are going to try their utmost best to ruin his life. Look at what people did with the (then) kid who played Anakin Skywalker. His life took some nasty turns because people think they own part of the actor's life. He might be a great actor, and he might look the part, but I doubt this is going to turn out well for him.

Of fucking course there's controversy....

I hope the actor doesn't lose his job over this. The show will probably be hot garbage. But he doesn't deserve to lose a paying gig because some woke assholes on Twitter didn't think he was "native enough"

This is so pointless. The original cartoon is perfect and there is NOTHING a live action adaptation can do to improve it or add anything unique to the story. If anything, having real kids do ridiculous magic martial arts surrounded by CGI water is going to look stupid (whereas it looked badass in the cartoon because cartoons are good at portraying impossible things)
