I LOVE this show (well, loved, since it's over now).

But the movie will be very messed up, for two reasons. One, it's a live action movie based on a cartoon series. The special effects will be totally different. Not bad, but not what most fans will be expecting. Two, the casting. Enough said.

This video is about the casting in the movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9y_c4e2p4Nw
"How can you lose time? ...Time doesn’t belong to anybody."

"The sea, the sea, the sea. It rolls and rolls and calls to me."

Sometimes, I wish we could completely delete the bad memories from our lives so we'd have more room for good ones. But then we'd all have memory loss problems.

The sad thing is that this type of casting crap has been going on for a while - "21" actually involved a group of Asian Americans, but were replaced with white actors and the Earthsea adaptation was all white, despite the fact that the book had a mostly "non-white" cast. More reccently they cast Jake Gyallhall as the Prince of Persia. That I can sort of understand considering that are many Middle Eastern people look "white" but the love intrest (an indian princess) is being played by Gemma Arterton!

Yes the kick ass video game! I think it's based on The Sands of Time. If it goes well, they might do the other two games.

S-seriously?! They're making a movie out of this?

Wow, I never thought moviemakers could stoop so low. Not that Avatar's bad or anything, quite the opposite. I love this show. It's just that... Part of what makes Avatar so great is its animation, and why in God's name would they even need to do a live-action portrayal? It's like doing a live action movie of Spirited Away, which is already an epic story and gorgeously animated. Not needed, and predestined to be a flop.

And then trying to pass off obviously asian (or at least non-white) characters as white people... What the heck? Can whoever's casting this be a little less dumb, please? You're not fooling anyone.

No more Zuko McCartney?

I don't know whether to be sad or pleased. On one hand, the movie will suck just a little bit less. On the other hand, it'll still suck a lot, and at least Jesse McCartney would have been something to make fun of.

Yep- he's apparently being played by the guy who starred in Slumdog Millionaire. He's better than McCartney, at least, but he looks much more Water Tribe than anything else. :blink:

But he's not hot.

Isn't he too lanky as well? And yeah, water tribe. I guess they're just casting whoever they feel like it. Nevermind the characters, who cares about those critters? Popping up everywhere like that. xD

Update - some protesters showed up at the auditions (about the casting). These casting people are clueless, and I quote from the head of casting herself, advising extras "If you're Korean, wear a kimono, if you're from Belgium wear lederhosen, if you're from Africa wear a scarf so you look like you're a Ukrainian viliager."

Anyway, they have found out that the nations have been divided up by race as well as elements so:

Water Tribe: White
Air Nomads: White
Earth Kingdom: East Asian (Korean, Chinese etc.)
Fire Nation: South Asian (eg, Indians, Pakistainis etc.)

So Toph, will be the only character who looks like what she's supposed to be.
