Team Avatar Jumps From Anime To Live Action As We Get A BTS Image Of Live-Action Gaang Together
Gordon Cormier posts a cute behind-the-scenes photo of the live-action ensemble congregating after a day of filming on Netflix's Avatar: The Last Airbender
The only live-action project linked to Avatar: The Last Airbender that is currently in production is Netflix's version. with various modifications and additions. Kim is not by himself in his live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender quest; the show is said to include a sizable ensemble. Without including extras or stunt performers, costume designer Farnaz Khaki-Sadigh stated in a post on her Instagram that Netflix has recruited nearly 130 actors for the show.
Gordon Cormier plays Aang, who is joined in his search for bending masters by Ian Ousley as Sokka and Kiawentiio as Katara. Gordon Cormier is the star of this cast. They meet Dallas Liu as Zuko, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Iroh, Elizabeth Yu as Azula, and Daniel Dae Kim as Fire Lord Ozai as the tale progresses. A Martinez and Amber Midthunder are two additional performers who have joined the cast but have not yet received formal roles.
Recent behind-the-scenes photos shared on Cormier's Instagram provide viewers a glimpse at just a portion of this enormous group. Cormier (Aang) tweeted a picture of himself with Ousley (Sokka), Kiawentiio (Katara), and Liu (Zuko) in a group huddle after a day of filming on Netflix's Avatar: The Last Airbender adaptation.
In a sense, it's a preview of Team Avatar or Gaang once Zuko decides to change sides and side with the good folks. The hats are worn by Ousley, Liu, and Cormier in this amusing picture also appear to be covering up their hairstyles. Look at the pictures below:
Aside from the introduction of new characters like Suki's mother, information on the live-action show's narrative and character changes have been few. The characters in the original anime had distinct designs and easily recognized animation styles, like Sokka's warrior's wolf tail, Zuko's top-knot, Aang's (tattooed) bald head, and Katara's hair loopies. Fans can tell that their actors don't share the hostility between Zuko and Aang even if they don't begin the season as friends. It's good for the show that the actors can hang around outside of shooting because friendships and relationships are so crucial in Avatar: The Last Airbender.
