Avatar: The Last Airbender Is A Faithful Adaptation Of The Famous Animated Series

The recent release of Avatar: The Last Airbender has been well received by the audience. According to the reputed media outlet Screenrant, the Netflix series is a faithful adaptation of the widely watched animated series. It carries the spirit of the original series while it brings out the essence of the live-action adaptation with character development and colorful costumes.

The live-action series stumbles only in the special effects section which fluctuates throughout the eight episodes of the first season. In the first few episodes, some of the visuals are shaky, but as the series moves toward the final episode, the special effects get better. The earth-bending and water-bending styles during the fight sequences have been brought to life by the showrunner and are no less than a visual treat for the audience.

As mentioned by Screenrant, every character looks quite similar to their animated versions. The live-action adaptation has brought the characters of the protagonist Aang, and sibling duo Sokka, and Katara to life. Gordon Cormier’s Aang is shown guilty of not being able to prevent the massacre of the Air Nomads. With Cormier’s great performance, he has infused joy and hope into the eight-episode-long series despite carrying the burden of his failures.

The teenage star has beautifully embodied the character of Aang as he is kind and always ready to see the best in others. Kiawentiio Tarbell as Katara is lively especially when she gains confidence over her water bending skills. Ian Ousley as Sokka overcoming his insecurities is one of the most important aspects of the series. The story is intricately woven between the aftermath of mass destruction and the hope for survival. Daniel Dae Kim is seen as the main antagonist the fire lord Ozai leading the Fire Nation’s army.
