Geeky Nostalgia: Shyamalan Talks About His Airbender Influence
"My wife who really has been kind of in neutral about my career was insane about it... [She said] 'You have to do it. This is it. This is the one.'"
The film stars film newcomer Noah Ringer, playing the part of Aang, a master of air bending. In this film, Aang is at war with the fire nations, who are out to tak control of this "last air bender." The five elements can be magically harnessed into powerful displays of magical control. Nothing was mentioned as to how faithful Shyamalan is staying to the Nickelodeon hit cartoon show, but one thing can be for certain, with Shyamalan at the helm, you can expect a different look and feel of the world of Avatar.
