Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Entire Cast of the Live-Action Series (So Far)

Published

on

Netflix and Nickelodeon are bringing the magical world of Avatar: The Last Airbender back to our screens, and now we know who will be playing who in the live-action series.

Netflix first announced the live-action adaptation in 2018, when Avatar creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino were on board to helm the series. However, the original creators departed the project due to creative differences. Now, Albert Kim is serving as showrunner alongside Dan Lin, Lindsey Liberatore, and Michael Goi.

Production is taking place on a virtual stage designed and operated by Pixomondo, a visual effects studio that helped to flesh out the world of Disney’s The Mandalorian. Netflix has named most of the stars who are stepping onto the cutting-edge set, with Paul Sun-Hyung Lee being one of the latest additions to the cast at the time of writing.

Keep reading for a rundown of who’s appearing in Netflix’s ATLA — and don’t forget to bookmark the page, as we’ll be updating this article with any additional casting news.

Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender Cast

Gordon Cormier as Aang

First up, Gordon Cormier has joined the cast of the live-action series in the role of Aang, aka the protagonist of Nickelodeon’s original animated series. The character is described as being a “fearless and fun-loving twelve-year-old who just happens to be the Avatar, master of all four elements, and the keeper of balance and peace in the world.”

Cormier, who you may recognize from the 2020 Stephen King miniseries The Stand, celebrated the Avatar casting news on his Instagram account back in August when it was first announced that he would be playing the reluctant hero of the series, who struggles “to deal with the burden of his duties while still holding on to his adventurous and playful nature.”

Kiawentiio as Katara

Aang will have a few friends to help him navigate his duties, including Katara who will be played by Kiawentiio — an actress who came to prominence when she was cast as Ka’kwet in Anne with an E in 2019. Now she will be joining Aang and the rest of the gang in the live-action Avatar series, which will see them rally together to save the world by defeating Ozai.

14-year-old Katara is described as being a “determined and hopeful waterbender,” the last in her small village where she and her brother Sokka grew up. She may only be young in age but sadly she has “already endured great personal tragedy, which has held her back from rising to her true potential, though it’s never dimmed her warm and caring spirit.”

Ian Ousley as Sokka

It’s Ian Ousley who will be starring as Katara’s sardonic and resourceful 16-year-old brother in the live-action Netflix series. The rising star has a handful of acting credits to his name, though his most notable role is probably that of Robby Corman in Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, even though he only appeared in three episodes of the teen drama.

As a character, Sokka is outwardly confident, even brash, which sometimes results in a few goofy moments but he also “takes his responsibility as the leader of his tribe seriously, despite his inner doubts over his warrior skills.” He is a fan-favorite character from the original series and provides some comedic relief with his wit and deadpan sense of humor.

Dallas Liu as Zuko

In addition to this trio, it was announced back in August that Dallas Liu had signed up to play Zuko in the series, where he roams the world in exile. Liu’s acting career is on the rise, having most recently starred as Ruihua, the younger brother of Awkwafina’s Katy, in Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

As a skilled firebender and the intense and guarded Crown Prince of the Fire Nation, Liu will no doubt be showing off his martial arts skills in Netflix’s upcoming series where he is said to be on “an obsessive quest to capture the Avatar because he believes that is the only way to reclaim his life and live up to the demands of his cruel and controlling father, the Fire Lord.”

Daniel Dae Kim as Ozai

Next up, Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender series found its Fire Lord in Daniel Dae Kim, who is known for his roles as Jin-Soo Kwon in Lost and Chin Ho Kelly in Hawaii Five-0, amongst many other acting credits. Kim also has past experience in the world of Avatar, having voiced General Fond in one episode of the original show as well as a video game adaptation.

Netflix revealed Kim is joining the series as a regular and said his character, Ozai, the ruler of the Fire Nation, “demands everyone live up to his impossible standards, especially his teenaged son, Prince Zuko. Ozai’s drive to conquer and unite the world under firebender rule is a family burden—he believes that it’s his destiny to finish a war started by his ancestors.”

Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Uncle Iroh

As principal photography started to get underway on the series, Netflix announced three new cast members, including Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Uncle Iroh. Lee is best known for having played family patriarch Appa in the Canadian sitcom Kim’s Convenience. He also guest-starred as rebel pilot Captain Carson Teva in two episodes of The Mandalorian.

In Avatar, Lee will be playing Iroh, a guardian and father figure to the oftentimes hot-headed Prince Zuko following his banishment from the Fire Nation. Iroh played an important role in the original series and fast became one of the show’s most beloved characters. He is a wise, kind-natured and spiritual man, even though he was once feared as a skilled general.

Lim Kay Siu as Gyatso

In addition, Lim Kay Siu joined the cast to portray Avatar Aang’s kind and caring mentor Gyatso. The Singaporean character actor has appeared in several films and TV shows since making his acting debut in the 1980s. He famously starred as the villainous Mao Yixin in 1995’s Night Watch and also played Prince Chowfa in 1999’s Anna and the King.

Throughout the animated series, Gyatso shares a very close bond with Aang and finds himself being more than just a mentor to him as he also takes on the role of guardian, father figure and best friend. They spend their days practising airbending together as part of Avatar training, though they always manage to find time for fun and games outside of those classes.

Ken Leung as Zhao

Commander Zhao will be portrayed by Ken Leung, who played criminal mastermind Sang opposite Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in Rush Hour before being picked up for several other mainstream features. Some of his notable roles include starring as Miles Straume in Lost, Detective Steven Sing in Saw, and Admiral Statura in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Zhao was a scheming and ambitious adversary of Team Avatar in most of the events leading up to his siege of the Northern Water Tribe. In the Netflix series, he will be out to cause trouble again as the Fire Nation military officer is said to be eager to leverage an unexpected encounter with a desperate Prince Zuko in order to advance his personal goals.

Nacon have confirmed that their luxury virtual driving experience will be available to purchase on 22nd September 2022 for multiple platforms – including PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

I tried to find something wrong with it, but this movie was perfection. Excellent example of great cinematography, starting from set, attention to details, acting, story , etc. It is one of the best from Ridley Scott and sadly I agree with him: younger generation prefers shallow brainless superhero movies. I hope that this work will be appreciated with time. Highly recommended for people that value true movie making.

Dems Have 3 Weeks to Pass Biden’s Agenda, Avoid Government Shutdown

Published

on

  • Congress has a lot on its plate this month.
  • Democrats want to avoid a government default on its debt and pass Biden’s Build Back Better agenda.
  • A bipartisan effort to authorize defense spending is also on the table to pass before the new year.

We are so sorry! We bumped into a system failure and couldn’t take your email this time.

Congress is back in session after a Thanksgiving recess, and lawmakers have a hefty agenda on their plates to complete before Christmas.

Two weeks ago, the House passed President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better framework, and while that was a significant step toward advancing Democrats’ social-spending agenda, they still have a ways to go. Not only does that framework face the Senate now, where it will likely see additional cuts and amendments, but Democrats also have to deal with averting a government shutdown, raising the debt ceiling, and passing a defense spending bill — all of which they hope to accomplish in December.

“As you know, the legislative agenda for the remainder of 2021 is considerable,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer told lawmakers in a letter before Thanksgiving. “I am confident we can get each of these important items done this year, but it will likely take some long nights and weekends,” he added.

Raise the debt ceiling by Dec. 5 to keep the US funded and avoid a government shutdown

The first matter Democrats must tackle is avoiding a government shutdown. On October 6, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell stepped in to help Democrats raise the debt ceiling and keep the government funded an additional two months. That measure expires in just five days, on December 5, meaning Democrats must figure out a way to once again ensure the US can continue paying its bills.

Although in the months leading up to October, Democrats struggled to raise the debt ceiling given the GOP stance that Democrats must do it on their own without Republican assistance, Insider reported last week that this time around may not quite the political standoff. McConnell and Schumer met to discuss the quickly approaching deadline.

“We had a good discussion about several different issues that are all extant here as we move toward the end of the session and we agreed to keep talking and working together to try to get somewhere,” McConnell told HuffPost following the meeting.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said that after December 15, she is not confident the Treasury will have the resources to fund the government and stressed the need for the matter to be addressed in a bipartisan way. Democrats like Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar agree.

“You know, if the Republicans want to scrooge out on us, and increase people’s interest rates and make it hard to make car payments — go ahead, make that case,” Klobuchar told ABC News. “We’re going to stop them from doing that.”

Democrats’ sweeping climate and social-welfare package

The vast majority of Democrats have been very clear: Americans need Biden’s Build Back Better agenda signed into law as soon as possible. While the House succeeded in a passing a $2 trillion framework this month, their version is certainly not final as it now rests in the Senate.

As Insider’s Joseph Zeballos-Roig reported, there are a number of measures that could get cut from the bill due to opposition from centrist Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. For example, Manchin had concerns with the inclusion of four weeks of paid leave, arguing it could grow the national debt, and he has also pushed back against expanding Medicare.

Meanwhile, progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders would like to see the bill “strengthened.” After the House passed the bill, he called for the inclusion of lower prescription drug prices, increased taxes on the wealthy, and more robust climate reform.

Biden previously said he would like to sign this bill into law “as soon as possible.” 

A bipartisan task: authorizing key defense programs

Both Republican and Democratic lawmakers are hoping to finalize the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year 2022, which will likely be the easiest thing lawmakers can pass this month. The NDAA has historically been bipartisan, and as The Washington Post reported, lawmakers are hoping to pass the $768 billion annual measure this week. 

However, this measure is being considered far later than it had in previous years and has raised concerns for some lawmakers that Congress could break a 60-year streak and fail to pass the defense policy bill.

“Don’t mess up the one thing that you can count on the Senate to do in a bipartisan way every year,” Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine told Politico. “A Senate that cannot do this hardly deserves the title.”
