Air, Water, Earth, Fire. Four nations tied by destiny when the Fire Nation launches a brutal war against the others. A century has passed with no hope in sight to change the path of this destruction. Caught between combat and courage, Aang (Noah Ringer) discovers he is the lone Avatar with the power to manipulate all four elements. Aang teams with Katara (Nicola Peltz), a Waterbender, and her brother, Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), to restore balance to their war-torn world.

Shyamalan adds that The Last Airbender will offer something more than a treat to the eyes, “but also for the mind and the soul.”  He also said that the Avatar: The Last Airbender adaptation has “deeper issues” including genocide and balance and how everything is connected in the planet. “It’s an important movie, not just a blockbuster summer movie.”
