About the Last Airbender 2
The Last Airbender 1 was released on 1st July 2010 in the United States of America. This movie runs for approximately one hundred and three minutes. The film is written directed, and one of the producers is M. Night Shyamalan. Additionally, the movie’s plot is based on the Tv show (the Last Airbender).
This film has different casts: Noah Ringer, Dev Patel, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Shaun Toub, and more. Also, it had a budget of $150 million, and since its release, it has grossed over $300 million on Box Office.
The Release Date of the Last Airbender 2
It is almost twelve years since the last Airbender part one release. When do we expect the film to premiere for a second part?
According to Shyamalan, we expect the show to premiere in 2022 or in the coming years. But this is a rumor. The first part of the movie didn’t do well with viewers as it had too many critics. On our side, we don’t think it is wise to come up with a second part of the film.
But that is up to the producers. We will inform you if we get any new information about its release date.
Reasons Why the Last Airbender One Flopped
Suppose you watched the last Airbender 1. You might be wondering why the movie had too much criticism. Although it had a high budget and grossed double its budget, the film didn’t please many. Why is this case?
Confusion is one of the reasons why it didn’t perform as expected. Many viewers’ comments raised issues with the animations used by Shyamalan. Most of the cartoon dialogue was confusing and hard to understand.
Additionally, it wasn’t specified which age group was meant to watch the movie. Was it for adults, teenagers, or children? This was a question by most viewers. But the producer didn’t specify this and made it hard for viewers.
Therefore, these are the reasons why the movie didn’t do well.
The Plot of the Last Airbender
This movie’s storyline starts with the Fire Nation declaring war on Air, Water, and Earth. Fire Nation is attempting to gain dominance in the world. It continues with Sokka discovering a unique iceberg in southern water. Breaking the iceberg produces a beam of light, and he sees Aang.
Additionally, Aang had Bison Appa, his pet. However, Zuko from Fire Nation notices the light and departs to the southern water to capture Aang. Aang decides to go with Zuko for peace in the village but escapes after getting on the ship.
Aang goes ahead to discover that he stayed in the iceberg for one hundred years. This is after the Fire nation wiped all air nomads. Aang returns to Sokka and Katara but doesn’t know water-bending. This forces them to move to the Northern Water Tribe to learn the skill.
He doesn’t arrive as Commander Zhao arrests Aang after a betrayal by a peasant. Luckily, he escapes from Zhao and comes to the Northern Water Tribe, where he receives a warm welcome from the inhabitants.
It is not long after the Fire nation goes after the avatar. Commander Zhao begins attacking the residents as Zuko is looking for Aang. The two battle until Katara freezes Zuko in ice. The Fire nation is defeated, and after Fire, Lord Ozai realizes that he sends Princess Azula to prevent Aang from mastering earth and fire.
So, we expect the film to continue with this plot in its second part as there are many incomplete parts.
The Cast of the Movie
The Last Airbender features top acts such as Noah Ringer. However, Noah won’t be in the second part as he retired from acting in 2011. In the film, Ringer acts as Aang. Another member is Dev Patel as Prince Zuko. As for him, we don’t know if he will be back, but we expect him to feature.
Other cast members include;
- Nicola Peltz as Katara
- Jackson Rathbone as Sokka
- Shaun Toub as General Iroh
- Aasif Mandvi as Admiral Zhao
- Cliff Curtis as Fire Lord Ozai
These are some of the cast members in the film. There are many others that I didn’t mention in this article.
So, this is all we had for today about the release of the Last Airbender 2. Thank you for your time.
