We saw a brief glimpse at The Last Airbender last week with the Super Bowl TV spot, and now Paramount has released the first full trailer for the film. We get to see more of those cool ILM visual effects, along with a brief look at the other characters (I haven’t seen the cartoon do I have no idea who they are).
The film’s hero, the reluctant young Aang (Noah Ringer), is the “Last Airbender” — the Avatar who, according to prophecy, has the ability to manipulate all of the elements and bring all the nations together.
Aided by a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara (Nicola Peltz) and her bull-headed brother Sokka, Aang proceeds on a perilous journey to restore balance to their war-torn world. Dev Patel plays the Fire Nation’s evil prince Zuko. Exiled from the Fire Nation by his father, Zuko is sent to capture the Avatar in order to restore his honor and right to the throne.
The Last Airbender will be released on July 2nd 2010, and if it’s a hit a sequel will get the greenlight pretty quickly. Kids don’t stay young forever!
