The upcoming Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Aang and Katara actors hang out behind the scenes together in adorable new images shared online.
The actors who portray Aang and Katara in Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender pose together in a new set of cute images. Avatar: The Last Airbender will be a live-action remake of the original animated show, based on the award-winning series of the same name. Netflix first announced the live-action remake in 2018. The Last Airbender Season 1 is currently in production and is expected to be released on the streaming site with eight one-hour episodes.
Avatar: The Last airbender follows his titular hero Aang as he trains to master all four elements and bring balance to a world ravaged by the warring Fire Nation. Gordan Cormier leads the cast as Aang and is joined by Kiawentiio Tarbell as Katara, Ian Ousley as Sokka, Dallas Liu as Prince Zuko, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Iroh, Elizabeth Yu as Princess Azula and Daniel Dae Kim as Fire Lord Ozai. Because of the high acclaim Avatar: The Last Airbender reached on release, Netflix’s adaptation has many wary that it will not live up to its purpose.
Although the Avatar: The Last Airbender cast can face the daunting task of reinterpreting such familiar and beloved characters, it seems they are having fun doing it. A new set of images posted by Cormier and Tarbell show the couple hanging out behind the scenes. They shared four new photos of them posing adorable and looking like they were having a blast. Check out the posts below:
Based on their posts, Cormier and Tarbell look like they became friends during the filming Avatar: The Last Airbender† Along with the new footage, Cormier and Tarbell demonstrated their friendship by joking in the comments. Tarbell captioned her message, “Came across that avatar boy, he likes hats for some reason,” and Cormier replied: “I just like hats because it’s so cold?”. Their lighthearted interaction shows nothing of the concern expressed online about the Last Airbender redo.
It’s understandable why some fans of the original series are wary of Netflix’s live-action adaptation. Not only does Avatar: The Last Airbender have a reputation as one of the greatest animated series ever made, but it was also previously made into a feature film by M. Night Shyamalan with disastrous results. Still, unlike the infamous film adaptation, Netflix’s cast shouldn’t add any cause for concern. Avatar: The Last Airbender fans can only hope that Cormier and Tarbell’s friendship can translate to Aang and Katara onscreen.
